Happy Easter from all of us at LMB Spa Consulting! To celebrate we are taking a look at one of the foods most often associated with the holiday: eggs. Eggs are often grabbed as a quick hot breakfast–often on breakfast sandwiches. But eggs shouldn’t be overlooked as a delicious, inexpensive, and healthy meal. Whether scrambled or over easy for breakfast or in a hearty omelet for dinner, eggs are a delicious and important source of nutrition. Taken as a whole, eggs are considered to be a complete source of protein as they contain all eight essential amino acids–including those our body cannot synthesize and, therefore, we must take in though.
Beauty comes from within. These words inspire and inform my lifestyle and my business. That is why my spa plans and custom designs are created to tend to customer’s whole bodies–internal health and peace informs external beauty. It is also why I choose ingredients that nourish the skin and the body for truly radiant beauty. So when you read my posts on yoga or trying to eat organic, try to embrace whatever makes you feel healthy and beautiful and you will shine.
Tea is undeniably healthy. It is hydrating. It doesn’t contain high levels of caffeine like coffee–but it has enough to heighten brain activity. It is delicious with little to no added sugar or fat (i.e. milk). In addition, tea made from the camellia sinensis plant–black, green, white, oolong, and pu-erh–contain antioxidants called flavonoids. These antioxidants help protect against free-radicals, which are believed to contribute to cancer, heart disease, and visible signs of aging. White tea, the purest form of the tea leaf, is known to contain the highest levels of flavonoids. There is no downside to drinking tea and plenty of upside. Still, drinking white tea–lighter and typically more perfumed than.
