I'm always nagging you to eat your dark green leaf vegetables, because they are a rich source of Vitamin A which helps your skin. However, not many of you know what they are and how to eat them. Yes, most are bitter, and it takes a little getting used to, but the health benefits are terrific. Here are some of my favorite ways to use them.
1. Throw a handful of chard or collards in the blender when making a fruit smoothie - you will not taste it.
2. A nice combination for an energetic morning drink is beet tops, lemon, ginger, and a green apple. I just clean and chop everything, including the skins, throw it in the blender, and drink the pulp and juices together. If you include some of the beet or its stems, it turns the color a gorgeous red and gives a nice sweetness!
3. Massaged Kale Salad - slice kale into ribbons; coat with some olive oil and lemon juice, then roll up your sleeves and massage that kale until wilted. Add some chopped mango and pumpkin seeds, serve chilled. Keeps well for a second meal.
4. Mustard Greens with Sesame Oil - saute chopped mustard greens in some sesame oil until tender. Serve warm or chilled.
Scheduling your massage or facial anytime, anywhere. I now have an improved online scheduler! Although I previously had an online scheduler, customers were concerned about the amount of information they were required to enter, including credit card information. The new system eliminates the need to leave credit card information, and allows you to see the available openings and choose your appointment quickly and easily.
When you choose the appointment and submit, a text alerts me and I can confirm automatically wherever I am. The new system also provides for online submission of documents needed for your massages or facial, for example, if you're newly pregnant, you'll complete the online Pre & Post Natal Health Form, and the information will be securely sent to me. No more having to scan, fax, or remember to bring your documents.
The system will also send you a reminder, and when you set up your free profile, you'll get to choose whether you'd like email or text reminders.
