So many idyllic spas, so many fabulous resorts.
Amid the Arizona desert, an oasis known as Miraval — a top-rated all-inclusive destination retreat – a resort, an award-winning spa, and simply a sensational getaway. For 16 years, Miraval has built its programming around the concept of Life in Balance™. 
The Miraval experience is:  fresh locally sourced ingredients to make gorgeously flavorful food–guessably all sustainable.
The Miraval January recipe of the month:  Breakfast Burrito 
2 large eggs
¼ teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh tomatoes
2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon crumbled Cotija cheese, or Feta cheese
2 tablespoons Salsa
Over a medium flame, heat the tortilla until warmed through, turning twice, 20 seconds per side. (Alternately, heat in a large dry skillet over medium heat.) Beat the eggs in a small bowl until airy. Heat a 6-inch skillet over medium heat. Add ¼ teaspoon of the oil and when hot, add the eggs and reduce the heat to low. Cook, stirring with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon and cook to desired doneness, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cilantro and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese. Place the tortilla on a work surface and spoon the egg mixture into the center of the bottom third. Fold the sides toward the center over the eggs and roll up to completely enclose the eggs. Place the flap-side down and cut on the bias in half. Place one half on each of two serving plates, and drizzle one tablespoon of the salsa over each half.  Serve immediately.

But if unable to get-away to acclaimed desert resort…then consider your local day spa.  Most have  excellent treatments for winter-weary skin care. A lot of day spas also have unique attributes.

A new day spa in the Raleigh-Durham Triangle–The Beauty and The Bull,  also features a unique event SPAce at their spa loft + a trendy open kitchen for intimate cooking classes.  A new cookbook is also forthcoming, brimming with spa favorites and gourmet glam  treats.      

Beauty and The Bull Kale Soup

  • 4 cups chopped raw kale
  • 6 gloves garlic
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cans (15oz or 420g) white beans, drained
  • 5 cups (1 liter) of low sodium vegetable broth
  • 4 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tsp of dried Italian herb seasoning
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 1-2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Sea salt to taste

Heat olive oil in a pot or generous sized pan, add onions, carrot and garlic. Cook until soft.  Add kale and sauté until it becomes bright in color. Add all other ingredients, but reserve 2 cups of broth and 1 can of beans.  Let the soup boil for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, drain the beans  and place them into a food processor with the remaining 2 cups of broth.  Blend until smooth. Add contents of food processor to soup mixture and stir well. Let simmer for another 15 minutes.
