    Frozen Foods
    Botox Day Tomorrow Tuesday Feb. 19
    Specials on CoolSculpting and Cellulite

    Botox Day is tomorrow Tuesday, February 19 with discounts on Botox and fillers such as Juvederm. Botox is $13/unit or $195/syringe (normally $16/unit and $240/syringe). Fillers are 10% off our regular price. Juvederm is the most common filler for “raising” facial wrinkles. Voluma is an injectable filler that augments and lifts the cheeks and Volbella and Vollure subtly augment the lips and improve perioral wrinkles.

    Frozen Foods

    Frozen foods may be “fresher” than non-frozen since often they are flash frozen at the peak of freshness. An example is that fresh fish at the counter is mostly fish that was frozen and was defrosted at the store prior to being put in the fish case.

    Belief in fresh frozen foods can be translated into creating meals and then freezing them in addition to just freezing leftovers. For those of us that work all day, taking a meal out of the freezer when getting home from work makes the evening meal easier. There are many books and recipes that incorporate freezing once the meal is made.

    (Did You Know? I recently purchased a vacuum sealer to better keep leftovers in the freezer. It’s easier than I thought. Things to look for are how wide the seal is, wider is better, and purchase thick bags or rolls to keep your foods in.)

    Steaks and burgers can be cooked while frozen. Heat the oven to 200 degrees and heat a cast iron or oven proof pan to very hot. Sear the frozen meat until nicely burnished on both sides. Put pan in oven and cook until the internal temp is cooked the way you like it done using a thermometer.

    CoolSculpting is a technique to freeze unwanted fat from a variety of areas. With our “Dual Sculpting” (two machines) the time is halved and flanks or abdomen can often be done in under an hour. The most common areas are abdomen, flank/side, thighs, hips, arms, back, under buttock, bra line and under the chin. The fat cells are permanently removed. Best of all is that there is almost no downtime so you can resume your activities the same day! Call Joni who has 5 years’ experience to discuss your situation 513-793-5772.
