Salon 01 Wellness Recipe

It’s rare that I have time to peruse the internet at my leisure when I’m home from a long day at work. Lucky for you though, I was able to sit down and finally look for new recipes to share! One of my favorite sites for recipes and wonderful wellness advice is MindBodyGreen.com, which is where I found this fabulous oil-free salad dressing. I used the dressing over arugula greens and shaved parmesan the other night for dinner. I was so impressed that I had to share it with you!

Oil-Free Citrus Salad Dressing

Makes about 2 cups

Ingredients

½ cup sundried tomatoes, packed

½ cup fresh basil leaves

2 fresh tomatoes

Juice of 1 orange

1 clove of garlic, minced

2 Neglet Noor dates or 1 Medjool date (optional)

Pinch of salt (optional)

Ground pepper, to taste

Directions

1. Soak sundried tomatoes in freshly squeezed orange juice for at least one hour or overnight in a fridge. Make sure to use sundried tomatoes that are not soaked in oil (otherwise it won’t be low fat).

2. Throw all the ingredients, including the orange juice, in a blender and blend until smooth. If your oranges are sweet enough, you might not need to use any dates. Also, I didn’t use any salt but you might want to use it depending on your taste preferences.

3. Pour over salad and enjoy!

Top five benefits of Yoga

By Alex Paredes

Over the last few years yoga has taken over pop culture. Everyone is doing yoga, talking about doing yoga, or experimenting with the want and need to implement yoga in their daily lives. We have included yoga as part of our services in conjunction with the series of nutrition and wellness menu items. Here are our top five reasons why we believe yoga is good for anyone’s everyday life:

  1. Yoga is for everyone – It’s meant to relax, rejuvenate, recharge, release, and refresh your inner connection to your body and mind. Allow yourself to appreciate the time you are giving to yourself and relax. It doesn’t happen as often as we need it.
  2. Yoga teaches you to understand your body – The practice of yoga serves as a link to the acceptance of our body. One can learn physical, mental and emotional strengths. Learn to accept your body for what it is and connect with your needs. Let your body tell you what it needs to be worked on instead of the other way around.
  3. Yoga serves as a great way to recover after workouts – Your body needs to release toxins after every workout and drinking a lot of water isn’t always enough. Yoga gives the body the opportunity to stretch out while building core strengths. Every stretch releases toxins which allows for more recovery time and less soreness the following days.
  4. Yoga = Meditation – Giving yourself time to meditate helps with finding ways to love your present. We all live busy lives, which can translate into worrying about the things we don’ get done. Meditation lets you refocus and rejuvenate yourself while releasing the stress.
  5. Yoga is for you – You get out what you want to get out of yoga. It serves as your time for YOU.

Our Yoga sessions are on Wednesdays at 7:30, call us at 317-580-0101 for more information.

Holiday hair trend – Balayage Highlights

by Alex Paredes

The holidays are just around the corner and our stylists are buzzing with inspiration on the latest hair color trend: Balayage Highlights. Balayage creates soft touches of highlights or lowlights that look natural and beautifully subtle. This technique allows the certified stylists to strategically hand paint pieces to naturally enhance your look. Balayage is not just for blondes, it’s also ideal for brunettes that want dimension and a delicate sun-kissed look. So, for this holiday season, opt for a change with this balayage technique to add “energy” and shine to your look.
