Los Angeles is populated with amazing restaurants - I still have dozens I want to try - and even more keep popping up…it’s the never-ending story.
We unfortunately though, tend to stick to what we know when deciding fast because really, who wants to wait for 45 minutes for a table when they’re “hangry”. Oh make a reservation you say? i.e.. planning? That is just out of the question for this gang over here.
But this Sunday was different, we left the pocket we tend to get comfortable in and discovered something mouth watering and simple - something I went home and had dreams about. Enjoy.
We love nothing more then a tasty, hearty and healthy salad for lunch. Filled with yumminess and texture. But I am not the BIGGEST fan of store bought mixed greens - I find they wilt, or taste off and go bad WAY too fast. So when I miss the Sunday’s farmers market I make the PERFECT salad solution. It stores well and can be eaten by itself but preferably I like it packed with the usual salad suspects. Below is the EASY salad starter accompanied by one of my fast and favorite lunch time salads.
This can be stored for up to 4 days if it will make it that long in your fridge!
What You Will Need:
This is the base to all your salads and is the canvas to yummy meals!
We always have pre-cooked chicken breasts on hand for fast meals - but this week the fennel was a new visitor in our fridge.
What You Will Need:
You can add anything you want to make this salad your favorite and the best part is it travels well, doesn’t wilt and will still hold the crunch and flavor!
As you all know, Shay and myself are bonified foodies. We are thinking about our next meal while finishing our current one. Needless to say, we are also extremely healthful and try to consume organic, fresh ingredients and avoid the processed and pesticide riden foods. Everything in moderation, they say…
After Shay being back on set, birthdays, events, and our manic lives (and not to mention summer coming in hot), we were feeling sluggish, energy depleted and tired. Our bodies were telling us we needed a reset.
We are not fans of diet fads or crash diets - though I am sure we have tried them all - and trendy eating is NOT our thing. We try to listen to our “food voice” and do what’s best for our body. With that said, we do believe in flushing out the bad with a healthy and monitored “cleanse” to realign our body, mind and soul (it doesn’t hurt our waistline either). With Shay wrapping up the tail end of her travel schedule, I decided to visit our good friend Dr. Bo and get a little head start.
This isn’t a 2-day juice cleanse or a drink water and eat air one either. This certain cleanse is designed to help detoxify and cleanse the blood, intestinal, digestive, organ, lymphatic, cellular and circulatory systems of toxic waste and parasite accumulation and to re-establish good nourishment and keep ones health at a high level.
The advantages of this unique 10 Day-Total Body Detox and 30 Day-Colon Cleanse program are numerous. The three specialized products making up Dr. Bo’s Magic Pak, - Body Magic, Fiber Magic and Colon Magic - enhances the body’s natural process of elimination or neutralization of toxic materials from organs, cells, tissues, skin, bloodstream, and the lymphatic, digestive and intestinal systems. Dr. Bo’s proprietary vitamin, mineral and organic herbal detoxification and all natural fiber cleansing formulas support this process and help purify and eliminate harmful toxins from the total body.
Body Magic includes 30 pre-packaged packets containing seven unique, “All-In-One”, health formulas, pre-mixed in vegetable capsules, for your convenience. Each packet contains potent vitamins, minerals, enzymes, probiotics, amino acids, bioflavonoids, herbal extracts, whole foods, super foods and an advanced anti-oxidant formula. The program is designed to help detoxify and cleanse the blood, intestinal, digestive, organ, lymphatic, cellular and circulatory systems of toxic waste and parasite accumulation as well as to re-establish good nourishment and keep ones health at a high level.
Fiber Magic is designed to provide elements that allow the body to cleanse itself naturally of accumulated waste, while providing a measure of good nutrition, essential building blocks for your good health, and natural fiber to the diet. Fiber Magic helps maintain normal healthy levels of cholesterol, intestinal regularity, blood glucose levels after meals and a healthy cardiovascular system.
Colon Magic is a gentle, effective and non-habit forming herbal formula, and is our most popular colon cleansing product. Its a special synergistic formula designed to aid in the cleansing of the liver and lower bowels. This unique combination of organic herbs helps to cleanse, feed, stimulate and rebuild the tissue lining and peristaltic muscles of the stomach, small intestine, colon and gastrointestinal tract. Colon Magic must be self-regulated.
This should be self regulated - so long as you are regular, keep it at 2 in the morning and 2 at night.
Now that you know why you should do this, how to do this and everything else, here is the good part: eating.
During the week we are both quite busy so we prepare almost all of this on the weekend and shakes are easy in the morning (as long as you have everything on hand:
What You Will Need:
This cleanse does nothing but allow your body to reset and feel amazing. After doing this 1—day jump start, (and a little treat or two after), I was ready to do the 30 day trim program with Shay. Agaian, this is more about lifestyle amendments then a diet. You are still consuming, just in a smarter and healthier way.

Kale Chips who? I don’t know many people that haven’t hopped on the “kale” wagon. I mean who wouldn’t - especially when an uber healthy, green veggie can be turned into somewhat a member of the “chip” family.
When we are cleansing, or on a health kick, kale chips are our saving grace. So whilst on my most recent cleanse I developed the NEW and IMROVED Kale chip: The Brussel Sprout Chip.
