DIY Body Scrub
Mix 1 C sugar, 1/4 c organic honey and 1/4 c OJ (OJ will melt a bit of the sugar but that''s ok)  When showering, using a loofah, rub each area that you would like to exfoliate for approx 30 seconds in a circular motion.

Safflower Oil for Dry Skin!
Safflower oil lubricates the skin, creating a barrier that prevents water from leaving your skin. Thus locking in moisture for glowing skin. The oil can soften dry areas, smooth rough patches, and even improve both the texture and tone of your skin.It''s also one of the best (and most inexpensive) sources of linoleic acid, which may be a secret weapon in preventing acne.

Dry Skin Help
Our skin is naturally acidic to protect against bacteria.  Many soaps are alkaline, though, so they strip away protective oils.  To avoid dry, cracked hands, look for a soap that''s pH balanced or one that lists lactic acid or glycolic acid among the first half of its ingredients.

Choosing Coconut Oil
Choosing unrefined, or "virgin" coconut oil will provide the most benefits since processing practices can negate its favorable properties.

Juice Cleanses Not for Healthy Weight Loss
MYTH: Juice Cleanses Help You Eliminate Toxins"People think juice cleanses are a good way to detox the body," says McDaniel. "But I remind my clients that you have a built-in detox organ, the liver, and it''s very good at what it does." It probably won''t harm you if you go on a juice cleanse for a day or so, but as a way to lose weight, it''s not such a good idea since it deprives you of proteins and fats and may lead to muscle loss.

Cilantro-Lime Chicken & Pineapple Skewers

  • 1 serrano chili pepper, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 T finely chopped cilantro
  • finely grated zest and freshly squeezed juice of 2 limes (at least 2 t zest and 1 T juice)
  • 2 t light brown sugar
  • 2 T olive oil
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 pineapple (or 12 oz), cut into 1-inch cubes


Combine the serrano pepper, cilantro, lime zest and juice, brown sugar, oil and s&p to taste in a medium bowl.  Add the chicken and stir to coat thoroughly; cover with plastic wrap (or put marinade/chicken in resealable plastic bag and press out as much air as possible)  Refrigerate for at least two hours and up to eight hours.When ready to cook the chicken, prepare the grill for direct heat.  If using a gas grill, heat to medium-high (450 degrees).  If using a charcoal grill, light the charcoal or wood briquettes; when the briquettes are ready, distribute them evenly under the cooking area.  For a medium-hot fire, you should be able to hold your hand about 6 inches above the coals for about 4 or 5 seconds.  Lightly coat a grill rack with oil and place it on the grill.  Have 8 wooden skewers at hand.  While grill is heating, prepare the skewers.  Thread the cubes of chicken and pineapple onto them, alternating the fruit and meat.  Each skewer should have about 8 pieces total.Arrange aluminum foil on the grate to shield the ends of the skewers from the heat of the grill.  Carefully place skewers on the grate.  cover and grill for about 5 minutes, then turn the skewers.  Cover and cook for five minutes. If the chicken is not done, cover and grill until fully cooked (170 degrees)
