Happy 4th of July! I was singularly focused on crab, specifically a crab roll.  So, I organized my thinking this 4th of July on a non-traditional alternative – spa-influenced of course – to the Hot Dogs and Hamburger of the 4th of July.  Of course, there are many hamburger alternatives that you see on the […]

Traveling, especially when you are not headed to a spa can be challenging on health and wellness routines.  I was traveling for work, and after a few weeks living out of a suitcase and long days and dinners with colleagues, I was definitely missing a spa-inspired lifestyle.  I wondered I could Live Spa even while […]

Recently when I visited the Grand Spa at Tabacon Thermal Resort and Spa , I noted that while at the spa, instead of the usual spa water and herbal teas, they offered a small fruit smoothie.  They had a number of offerings, as depicted in a pamphlet of “Fruit Therapy” This really resonated with me from […]

Spa cuisine isn’t about restriction and deprivation.  I have had some truly decadent desserts at destination spas like the Lodge at Woodloch, Mii Amo and Miraval.   One of my favorites is a Bitter Chocolate Cremeaux and I have been working with a variation for home.   Like all spa cuisine, the key is about […]

I think one of the things I love about spa time is that I get a break from technology for a period of time.  The phone is silenced and put away while I enjoy a massage or facial.   And on an extended destination spa, my phone for once is not my constant companion.   […]

I love a good green juice. I think I first got inspired by visiting the Lodge at Woodloch.  I saw on their breakfast menu they had a Kale, Spinach, Cucumber and Apple Juice.  I had always been big on smoothies, although I never really put much dairy in those, just blended fruit and maybe some […]

I do think one of things that makes a spa special is that it isn’t something that we get to do everyday.  So we don’t take it for granted, and we appreciate the indulgence that it is.  However, as every spa trip wraps up, i always think about ways to keep the experience alive and […]
