Ostrich Egg Omelet and Chocolate mousse for your flat stomach

What’s in Your Kitchen?

Once again, I assisted my favorite gal (founder of Tonique Fitness) in the kitchen, and  today she was Chef Sylwia WiesenbergBoth of us experimented fully with cooking and developed our own passion for balanced, delicious, fresh healthy meals anyone can make and became quite good CHEFS!I  We often rely on each other’s taste of new samplings, always coming out with new varieties and JOCK POT RECIPES.hmtks5pxKgZyS2_bsNco9QdyuM3Hay6KvEQ9ERC47bk

Ladies, we all want to be able to fit into our Chihuahua-sized dresses and to do this, it isil_570xN.155576486 important to eat healthy! In today’s world, it can be so hard to resist the temptation of greasy fast-food when we are on-the go and too busy to cook. That’s why we located high-energy, delicious, seasonal produce from a local Farmer’s Market at Union Square immersing in the best of nature’s beauty loading on ramps, micro greens, radishes and sprouts. Today, Sylwia has shown us how to cook with an item most people are probably too intimated to use, an Ostrich Egg!

BPSkTKV-5wmzSi9795dbgeeEnKZW2Olh1G-N-BoqMaYThey are the giant eggs you see in Whole Foods Market that look like they could have come from a dinosaur or dragons! They may be intimidating, but once you conquer your fears, you’ll find that these ostrich eggs can be the star of your next meal!

They are just SO GOOD!  



You can impress your guests not only with your outfit but shine with your culinary skills as well.C6adeN8-Ju_8wXBZC1K99ZA_E5FaKMbNlT9lOOa4t7g The first challenge is to know how to open the ostrich egg. You can’t just crack it like a regular egg.

Chef Sylwia to the rescue!

She showed  how to graciously open the egg. Be patient to get it all out of the shell. It almost felt like a baby ostrich was going to emerge from the egg! Astonishingly, one ostrich egg is the equivalent of 24 chicken eggs, giving enough food to feed more than 10 people! To give flavor and add nutrients to this dish Sylwia used fresh ramps and radishes. Vegetables like these are a great way to add healthy food to your diet without breaking the bank.

They complete every course and commit you to keep those extra pounds off!


Once we tasted the finished product, I knew that ostrich egg would be in my diet from now on! I could hardly believe that they were healthy meals because they were so tasty!

The frittata and omelet are great healthy options to add to your diet and are very versatile too.

Eat – Pray – Love and don’t get FAT



If its a guilty breakfast pleasure you are doing it wrong! Its been proven that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Unfortunately most of us either skip it or even worst stuff ourselves with all wrong choices that rob us off energy, vitality, longevity and add inches to our waist line. DR.CELEMNTAccording to the world’s top naturalpath PHD Dr Brian Clement founder of Hippocrates Institute in West Palm Beach, FL the best option to start your day and boost your energy levels is with green juices or simply liquids. Until 11am we should be consuming only liquids as the body recovers from the sleeping mode and adjusts its readiness to consume solid foods.

Cheat on your favorite diner joint, roll up the sleeves and create a smoothie that will BOOST and extend your longevity. You don’t have to learn from French their cooking secrets anymore. Thankfully I caught Sylwia on her “cuisine” mastermind charms  and wanted to share her nutrition wisdom with all of you. 


I assisted her in preparation of this delicious shake made out of Young coconut, champagne mango, and dragon fruit. Thanks to her I discovered the revelation of the tropical and exotic fruits mellow sweetness of which I had no prior knowledge’s existence.

Sylwia nailed this refreshing elixir. Take a lesson from her: give me some bright liquid smoothie made just in minutes in the comfort of your kitchen that delivers all needed nutrients to your body.

Today I can’t use enough of this delicious joy and start each morning with this super tasty smoothie alternated with green juices.  You can create your own star performance smoothie and start the BREAKFAST MAGIC every morning! Armed with all the right ingredients, its easy to make, and you will be so happy “GOOD MORNING” is finally here.


Sylwia’s smoothie recipe:

1 Young Coconut (pour the water out and scoop out yummy coconut meat)

1 Champagne or 1 Atkins mango

3 scoops or (tbs) of organic raw hemp powder (source of 16g of protein)

1/2 frozen banana

1/2 dragon fruit


For the sweeter taste I like to add 1 tbs of agave (or stevia) + boost my immune system with 1 tbs organic SAIGON cinnamon.

Mix all ingredients together in VITAMIX (preferably) until smooth solid texture for about 60 seconds.

New Girl in Town: Bethenny Frankel

Move over Oprah – here comes Bethenny Frankel!

From zero to hero, Bethenny Frankel has slowly been working her way into society’s limelight. Starring on the “Real Housewives of New York” launched her career to new heights. Since the show, she has managed to make a name for herself not only as a TV/film star but as an author, entrepreneur, and most recently TV talk show host.

Initially being a hater, I can understand where all of the criticism comes from; but this woman has truly become my idol. She has risen to the top of the food chain by simply being who she is. Her passion, honesty, and general kick-ass attitude are traits that we can all aspire to have.

Her two most noticeable accomplishments right now are the launch of Skinnygirl Cocktails (see my previous post for more info on this delicious brand of alcohol heaven) and her new daytime TV talk show, “Bethenny”. You can check out what it’s all about here at

What is Bethenny Frankel going to do next!?

Looking forward to hearing your comments and questions!

Eyelash Emergency!

Eyelashes can make the eye look old and tired if untouched, but put some mascara and eyeliner on and BOOM! Your eyes are given a new life. Lash extensions take the power of maintained eyelashes to the next level by improving the length, thickness, and fullness of your eyelashes.

There are 3 variations of extensions:

1. False lashes (temporary)

  • Applied directly to the eyelid
  • Not to be worn in the shower, overnight, or while swimming
  • Meant to be used for a single day or a couple of hour
  • Cost starts at about $3 at a typical drugstore and can go up in price depending on the material of the lash (but why spend $50 on lashes you’ll wear for less than a day!?)

2. Eyelash extensions (semi-permanent)

  • Does not come in contact with the eyelid
  • One lash extension is applied to the tip of each individual eyelash
  • Can sustain showering, swimming, and overnight wear
  • Meant to last until the natural eyelash falls out – can last for weeks or months
  • Process takes 1-2 hours and is to be done by cosmetologist or aesthetician
  • Can cost anywhere between $100 and $500

3. Medically enhanced process

  • Drug prescription
  • Allows natural lashes to lengthen and thicken on their own
  • Costs about $125 for a month-long supply of the drug

No matter the color, size, or shape of your eyes they always seem to look better with a touch of mascara and eyeliner – am I right? That’s because eye makeup is meant to attract attention to our eyes and make them more dramatic. Extensions achieve that more naturally bold look, and when extensions and makeup go out on a date together they are unstoppable. Visit the eyelash extension specialists at ebenezer.

Amore Pacific – Most wanted traveling mask to boost your skin

Your skin challenges SOLVED!!

Skin bottles?  No more! Just few weeks ago I put Moisture Bound Vitalizing Masque to test during my overseas 8 hour flight.  When I first used it I could tell a difference immediately. Clear liquid pleasant texture easy to apply conveniently didn’t need to be wash off my face.  It instantly boosted the skin vitality, brightened complexion, improved elasticity and restored its firmness dramatically. Asian ingredients like bamboo, green tea, Korean red ginseng penetrate to the skin’s deepest layers to hydrate, nourish, and revitalize the dullest skin.

Thanks to this mask my early morning CDG airport arrival didn’t have any signs of fatigue on my face. I use it all the time during my travel and its a perfect way to look always fresh after your long flight while pampering your skin.

Another unbelievable product I found as the foundation of youth and perfect for travel as well is Time Response Eye Renewal.  This is by far the best eye cream in the world I have ever used!!!  A little bit pricey $260 but worth every penny spent while setting each wrinkle free.

It improves the appearance of lines, darkness, puffiness in the delicate eye area. Stimulates collagen production – improves skin density and reduces sagging.

This line is XXII century’s technology and my absolute TRAVEL SAVER!
