Day Trip to Health

pritikin

This week, I’m headed to the Pritikin Longevity Center & Spa for some much needed rest and relaxation.  It’s one of America’s leading health & wellness resorts (located right here in Miami) and I can’t wait to get there! For 35 years now, more than 100,000 guests worldwide have come here to prevent and reverse problems such as excess weight, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and cancer risk factors.  Pritikin is more than just a vacation – it’s a life-changing experience, a total health overhaul and a premiere wellness destination. With exceptional fitness trainers, award-winning chefs who teach gourmet yet waist-slimming dining classes, workshops and seminars, along with world-class nutritionists and a full menu of exquisite spa treatments – a visit twill give guests the full scoop on the latest in wellness and show how to achieve long-term weight loss, decrease blood pressure, see dramatic improvements in heart disease risk factors and develop healthy lifestyle changes that can add YEARS to lives.

I am SO excited about my visit.  Pritikin’s one- and two-week lifestyle-change programs are tailored to meet the needs of the individual and focus on daily exercise and an eating plan based on natural, whole foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, seafood, and limited lean meat.   My schedule includes yoga, aquatics, Tai Chi, spinning, and mat pilates.  But, they are also addressing my inner foodie.  Look at this menu:

Breakfast

  •     Hot, Fresh Oatmeal With Pineapple and Mango
  •     Oatmeal Supreme With Apple, Bananas, and a Hint of Vanilla Served With Fresh Peach Sauce
  •     Assorted Cold Cereals
  •     Fresh Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries and Raspberries; Fresh Mango, Papaya, and Melons
  •     Egg White Omelet Bar that includes Roasted Vegetables, Salsa, Nonfat Cottage Cheese, and more

Morning Snack

  •     Rich, Thick Wild Mushroom Soup
  •     Sweet Potato & Green Apple Salad (a nice combination of sweet and crunchy)

Lunch

  •     Salad Bar Buffet With More Than 24 Fresh, Hand-Cut Items
  •     Tomato Rice Soup
  •     Thin-Crusted Garden Vegetable Pizza, or
  •     Homemade Herb Crepe Filled With Ricotta
  •     Sundried Tomatoes & Fresh Basil In a Rich Marinara Sauce Served With Broccoflower and Spaghetti Squash
  •     Chocolate Mousse (creamy and delicate)

Afternoon Snack

  •     Tuscan Leek Soup (thick and satisfying)
  •     Three-Bean Salad (a tasty new take on a classic)

Dinner

  •     Panzanella Salad (fresh herbs and vegetables tossed with our own croutons)
  •     Orange Saffron Tomato Soup (a mouth-watering sensation)
  •     Pepper-Crusted & Seared Tuna With Saffron Polenta and Sweet Potato Salsa, or
  •     Grilled Bison Tenderloin (cooked to your liking) With Sunburst Squash, Creamed Spinach, and Farro, or
  •     Zatar-Spiced Tofu & Eggplant With Tomato Salsa and Roasted Red Bliss Potatoes
  •     Jewel of Fruit Pie (a fusion of strawberries, bananas and apples)
