No, this isn’t about Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.) giving up defecating. It’s about her giving up shampoo. This week she admitted on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family show that she’s a “half-pooer.”

Full no pooers apparently lather using a concoction of baking soda and apple cider vinegar.

For those who don’t like their hair smelling like feces, they offered an alternative: a mix of coconut milk, aloe vera juice, liquid soap, and a few drops of lavender essential oil to combat the stink.

In another segment, Bachmann showed off her “mighty muffins.” Bachmann ventured to the TV kitchen to prepare the muffins. The apron-clad Bachmann also touted her “energy drink,” which is water. “HEALTHY, HEALTHY, HEALTHY,” she declared before launching into her daughter-in-law’s monumental muffin recipe.

“This is what’s so kickin’ about it. It is 125 calories of frittata,” said Bachmann, who travels with her muffins by putting them in a plastic bag. She says she gets them through TSA, not because she’s a congresswoman, but because they’re not liquid. “…Think, you could have 10 of these a day. …But anyway, you want to eat this, it’s so good.”

Bachmann took viewers through the prep work. She remarked, “I am just a fool for any kind of onion and mushrooms.” Indeed, these aren’t ordinary muffins — they contain turkey, onion, pepper, mushrooms. “I’m a freak for mushrooms,” she said.

Scooping the mixture into paper muffin cups, she remarked, “Put it in, okay, bingo, bango … this is the frittata!” (BINGO, BANGO?)

Getting back to hair,  Bachmann says she uses coconut oil, which she smooths onto her locks at the women’s gym in Washington.

Watch out, Rachel Ray. Once she leaves Congress, Bachmann may be coming for your job.
