• Grains, Salute the Kernel Botox WEEK, Yes, WEEK, This WEEK!!! Summer Specials on Coolsculpting, Fillers and Micropeels

    Botox Day is tomorrow, July 16 BUT WE WILL BE HAVING SOME HOURS EVERY DAY THIS WEEK!!! We will have discounts on Botox and fillers such as Juvederm.  Botox is $13/unit or $195/syringe (normally $16/unit and $240/syringe). Fillers are $100 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.

    Grains; Benefits & Info

     

    Grains are associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, esophageal and colon cancers, diverticular disease, and death from all causes.  It has been suggested that whole grains can help weight.

     

    Grains are made up of four parts: the inedible hull, bran (adds a dose of fiber and B vitamins), endosperm (houses starches and proteins), and the germ which like the yoke of an egg has protein, vitamins and minerals.

     

    (Did You Know?   Three ways to better cook grains:  don’t rinse; different grains require different amounts of water-just cover every grain with two inches of water and when done dump into a mesh strainer to remove extra water; and check doneness as it should feel slightly chewy.)

     

    Some common grains:

     

    Qiunoa- Grown in the Andes Mountains, it has all the essential amino acids so is a completer plant-based protein.

    Teff- Hails from Ethiopia and has minerals such as manganese, iron and zinc.

    Freekeh- When framers reap durum wheat before it’s fully mature, sun-dry the seeds and burn away the hulls.  Can have double the protein and 4x the fiber of brown rice.

    Farro- Around since the Roman Empire, it is similar to quinoa for protein and fiber.

    Spelt-Similar to farro but a tougher bran layer makes it better for grin based salads while farro is better for risotto and stews.

    LA DOLCE VITA:

     

    It’s the peak of vacation season and just a reminder to use sunscreen with reapplications every two hours.  We have many products here but basically use a spf of 30 or higher, sun “blocks” work best, and there’s no substitute for wearing a hat or protective clothing.
