Once boiling, turn off the stove, taking the pot off the heat, and put the tomatoes in
After 10 minutes, or once the tomato skins start to split open, put them into some cool water. I used room temperature water (no such thing as cold water out of the tap here in the Arizona summer season!)
If the skin hasn’t already split, you can easily pierce it with a knife
Be careful when skinning your tomatoes, the little bit of liquid between the skin and the flesh is still pretty hot! When piercing the skin, roll the tomato around a few times in the water to cool off the newly exposed tomato flesh
And that’s how to get a naked tomato, skinned and ready for sauce or soup.
Well, after deciding a meal my husband made was too pretty to eat and took out my new studio lights to take pictures – I was hooked. I have awakened a new passion the past few days to design recipes and artistically and visually capture the love I have for food, cooking, and a SOUL (seasonal, organic, unprocessed and local) lifestyle.
You’ve graduated high school and you’re off to college! Believe me when I say from the bottom of my heart, congratulations. You’ve worked hard for it. And it’s one of the most exciting times of your life. You have the college experience to look forward to, and the rest of your life in front of you.
But for many, that also means being on your own and making your decisions solely for yourself for the first time, and adapting to a complete change in lifestyle. Between the stress and the new academic workload schedule, so many college freshman gain excess weight their first year. To help balance out your new-found freedoms and increased obligations, here are a few tips to keep yourself healthy and happy through the college years (and beyond!):
Breathing can help prolong your life. Well, especially when you combine it with meditation.
In an age where we are constantly multi-tasking, plugged in, inundated with images, facts and emails and enduring constant over-stimulation, it’s no wonder we’re exhausted and a little frayed at the edges each day.
And when you have added stress, it can affect your body in many ways both physically and mentally. So whether you are going through a difficult time in your life or are struggling with an ongoing mental health issue, adopting mindfulness could be just what the doctor ordered.
Do you have a friend or loved one who makes a life(style) altering promise to themselves every Jan. 1, and has a hard time keeping it?
It’s the holidays, and we’re all struggling with the cornucopia of sweet and fatty goodies laid out at every meeting, and the hectic schedules. Why stress about wrapping yet another gift…give the gift of a holistic nutrition assessment or life coaching packages to help that friend or loved one achieve those long pined after goals!
