Spa Owners Offer Women's Wellness Tips...

 

Water is magic...

Water cleanses not only the body, but soothes the spirit as well. A minimum of 8 glasses of water daily is essential for good health and lovely skin. This is possibly one of the best things you can do for your body. As well, the sound of falling water coaxes your spirit into a languid state creating the perfect backdrop for meditation. For a twist on your traditional soak, try tossing handfuls of flower petals into your tub. The sheer luxury and aroma will transport you to another place, reminiscent of a tropical paradise.

Another way of preparing eggs...

If you do not want to eat your eggs boiled or poached, just put two tablespoons of tomato juice or milk, or water with a pinch of stock added, in a small pan (preferably nonstick); when the liquid comes to a boil add the eggs, either beater or whole. You can also add artichokes, mushroom, zucchini, etc. Delicious!

Try this Five-Minute Workout Rule...

When you're just too exhausted to work out, try this. Make a deal with yourself: You'll walk, or bike, or do whatever you ordinarily do for just five minutes. That's all. If, at the end of that time, you're still too tired, stop. You need rest more than exercise. But do give it five minutes to see whether exercise might revive you. Most times, though, you'll keep going -- getting started is usually much harder than continuing.

Men are better than women...

Men are better than women... Men apparently acclimatize (to heat) faster than women because the male hormone, testosterone, stimulates sweating.

Sun-baked Lips...

The best remedy for sore lips I have ever discovered is the jojoba moisture cream sold by the Body Shop.

Lowfat and fabulous food...

Recipe for Shrimp Fantasia

1 pound shrimp, (about 20) thawed and deveined
1 tsp. dark toasted sesame oil
4 medium plum tomatoes, small diced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 scallions, chopped
2 tsp. fresh ginger, peeled, chopped
a nice amount of fresh basil, chopped
1 1/2 tsp. mild curry paste (I like Patak's mild)
or 1 1/2 tsp. (total) of curry spices (cumin, chili, coriander, etc.)
freshly ground black pepper
tamari to taste

Heat sesame oil in large skillet, saute scallions, garlic, ginger and spices for 2 minutes. Add shrimp and cook for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, basil, pepper and tamari. Cook on medium heat until shrimp are done and tomatoes are heated through. Serves 4-5.
