Thanksgiving is like 10 days away! Yikes. Let's whip up a turkey free Thanksgiving spa fish recipe with the Golden Door’s Head Chef Curtis Cooke*: Pan Seared Kala Snapper with Thai Vegetable and Red Curry Chowder. And it serves 12 - 14 folks if you've got company coming! Yum! *chef at the time of this taping Cook along with us! Recorded live in the kitchen of the world famous Golden Door Spa. He’ll even show klutzy me how to rock a knife! In fact, he shared so many great tips that we will be cooking dessert as part two of this series in a few weeks. Candy Chills. That’s the only way to describe walking through the Golden Doors (yes they actually exist), across the bridge and onto the grounds of the Golden Door Spa in Escondido, California. A place where Hollywood goes to unwind and a place I have fantasized about since I was a child. Yes here I was where stars like Barbara Streisand have been! And the food! You'd never guess it's healthy it's so delish. They even have a cookbook, click the image below and check it on Amazon: Grab these ingredients, turn on the audio and let's get cooking: (note the recipe Serves 12-14 and is perfect for a crowd but cut ingredients in half if you’re cooking for a smaller crew!) 3 Large filets of Kala Snapper, (Escolar, Butter Fish or Tuna work well, whatever is freshest) 2 inch knob of ginger, peeled and sliced into 4 pieces 1 TB minced garlic 1 TB minced lemongrass (use coffee grinder to mince) 2 Kaffir lime leaves 1 TB chili garlic sauce 2 TB plain tomato sauce 3 TB fish sauce 1 tsp ground cumin 2 ea 13 oz cans unsweetened light coconut milk 2 C chicken stock 1 large potato, peeled and medium diced 1 yam, peeled, cut in half and sliced into ½ moons 1 zucchini, quartered and sliced 2 C green beans, cut in half 2 ea carrots, peel and sliced into rounds 1 red bell pepper, medium diced 3 TB fresh Basil, chopped Lightly mist a large sauce pot and heat over a medium-high flame. Add the ginger, lemon grass and garlic and sauté until they begin to release their scents, 3-4 minutes. Add in the chili sauce, fish sauce, cumin, tomato sauce, lime leaves, coconut milk, stock, potato and yam. Stir to incorporate. Cover with a lid and simmer for 35 minutes. Remove the slices of ginger and lime leaves from the pan. Add in all the remaining vegetables. Cover and simmer for another 15-20 minutes or until the curry has thickened and all the vegetables are cooked. Throw in basil at the last minute. Note: Garnish with lime wedge.

I Need a Nap: How to Kip for Health & Beauty (No Nap or Sleep Pod Spa Needed)
Just in time for the clocks to fall back, when our sleep is interrupted - we've got a virtual spa nap for you. Yes, napping spas are a thing (aka nap bars, nap lounges, nap cafes) and more companies are offering sleep or nap pods and cabins for employees) but since we all don't have one - let's create a virtual nap spa at your office. Listen on the bar at the bottom of the post. We've got some tips to help you nap like a pro - excerpted from our interview with visionary & spa founder Nicolas Ronco. Who rejuvenated himself following sleep deprivation on a trip abroad, using naps and reflexology. Including: why we are prehistorically programmed to nap for 20 to 40 mins between noon and 3pm daily achieving the ideal position "zero gravity" when you're in the office how to create your napping nest with Aromatherapy, music and textiles how a nap can help you be more rested and productive. Yelo NYC Did y'all know Salvador Dali practiced micro naps? He would fall asleep with a key in his hand above a plate, when he reached max slumber and dropped the key, the sound of it hitting the plate would awaken him! Candy Holladay How artist and jewelry designer Salvador Dali napped. Pull up a pillow and blanket, this episode is definitely not driving listening! But hey why not take it along on a plane. Meanwhile, a few spas where you can take a nap to inspire you: Faire la Sieste nap spa in Paris Pop & Rest London Spa Le La Los Angeles, California mahikamano Tokyo If you'd like more ways to spa up your life, check out our new video series, Style Holladay on Candy Holladay youtube!
