Try this Organic Summer Salad Recipe!



During the summer, it’s very important to eat light and clean meals. This salad is perfect for the summer time because it is full of healthy, nutrient-rich veggies, and soybean which has tons of protein. It is especially important to use organic produce because it is free of GMOs and other harmful chemicals.

For the salad:
1 head of organic Romaine lettuce
10 leaves of organic dandelion
1 cup of organic daikon radish sprouts
1/2 cup of organic soy beans
1/2 cup of organic cilantro leaves
1/2 cup of organic basil leaves
1 large ripe organic tomato, diced
1 clove of organic garlic, minced

For the dressing:
1/2 cup organic apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp fresh ground white pepper

Clean the lettuce and greens very well. Spin dry. Toss all the ingredients in a large salad bowl. Add dressing and mix gently. Serve immediately.

Serves 6

Delicious Recipe for Organic, Gluten Free Zucchini Walnut Bread



A client gave me organic zucchini from her garden a few hours south of LA. I decided to use it to make my own organic gluten free zucchini walnut bread. Here is the recipe so you can make it at home:

3 cups all purpose gluten free flour
1 1/2 cups of raw sugar
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tablespoon dried ginger
1 tablespoon dried cinnamon
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp fresh grated nutmeg
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
3 large organic eggs
1 cup organic coconut oil
1 tablespoon real vanilla extract
2 cups fresh grated unpeeled zucchini
Juice and zest of one lime
1 cup chopped organic walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease two 4″ x 8″ loaf pans with coconut oil.

Combine all dry ingredients into large bowl. Mix thoroughly with wire whisk. Beat 3 eggs in separate bowl. Add vanilla, coconut oil, lime juice and zest and blend well. Add dry ingredients slowly. Mix with wooden spoon or spatula until just combined. Add grated zucchini and chopped walnuts. Pour into prepared loaf pans. Place on middle rack of oven.
Bake at 325 degrees for 50 to 55 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Serves 6

Happy baking!

We like the way Style Within Reach spends her Sunday night’s…frankly, we’d like to end all of our nights like this!

Fresh laid eggs from the morning made into delicious quiche filled with fresh picked zucchini sauteed with fresh harvest spring onion, fresh spring garlic and fresh organic olive oil.

I’m so happy I finally got to meet Mary Fisher. Looking forward to supporting the 1GDBracelet to help vulnerable women in Africa. Stay tuned!

On my way to the Hamptons for the weekend. Finally found organic produce in Amagansett farmers market owned by Eli’s.

“Marine Lotion Is A Summer Miracle” – Katie Cassidy

Marine Lotion Katie Cassidy

Our Marine Lotion is part of Katie Cassidy‘s summer skincare essentials. We love what the actress has to say about it in her blog Tom Boy KC:

“Getting glowing, beach ready skin is all a matter of choosing the right post-shower elixir. And for us, Marine Lotion is what one might call a bit of a godsend in that department. Not only does it make skin glow upon first use, but over time (it can be used anywhere on your body and face) some have claimed they can skip their foundation altogether. Eureka! It’s a summer miracle!

Loaded with algae oil and aromatherapeutic essential oils, this potent skin-nourishing solution is perfect for that amazing summer glow. It gives your skin the moisture it needs to look flawless all summer long. Shop this “summer miracle” here.

Pamper Yourself During Your Lunch Break With This Summer Special!

lunch hour special

Pamper yourself during your lunch break! Between the hours of 12pm and 2pm Tuesday to Friday, receive a complimentary Manicure or Fruit Peel with an hour-long facial.

Treat yourself to some much-deserved rest and relaxation while our estheticians restore your skin’s youthfulness. The Susan Ciminelli Facial uses her signature nourishing, anti-aging skincare products with each treatment leaving your skin glowing and rejuvenated.

A healthy, natural alternative to a chemical peel, the Fruit Peel (a $35 value) is essential to keep your skin glowing. The enzymes in the fruit peel chip away at upper layer of skin which lets us more easily perform extractions during the facial, leaving you with cleaner, clearer skin.

Please note our Summer Hours. The Beauty Clinic will be closed on Saturdays during the Summer. We will be open from 9:30 to 6:30 Monday to Friday.

For additional information or to book your appointment call 212-750-4441.
