Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Primer

AdrianneHo_SuzieSupreme_-7 It’s what you apply under your makeup that will keep you looking fresh faced all day long…
SweatTheStyle_Korres_GreekYogurtPrimerSkin priming is becoming more recognized as a major step to take before makeup application. Although the cleaning and toning process is important, it is just as important to prep your skin before putting on makeup. A few benefits of using a primer is that it seals your pores and acts as a natural shield for dust, water, and debris that might make your makeup wear off. It also reduces redness and won’t irritate your skin.

The Korres Greek Yoghurt Nourishing Primer is a perfect addition to your makeup routine! Protein from Greek yogurt, which contains two and a half times the protein of regular yogurt, helps to strength and hydrate the skin while creating a smooth canvas for makeup. The moisturizing nature of this primer also allows your foundation to be less likely to fade. This is a great way to ensure your makeup stays fresh whether you’re spending a day at the beach or at work.

Fig, Walnut, and Goat Cheese Tartine

SweatTheStyle_CattyBoomBatty_FigTartineA seasonal sweet and savory tartine makes a great snack or side for a salad. This one in particular has a combination of flavors and textures that will automatically question whether you should feel guilty about eating this. Chef Catty Boom Batty specializes in tartines and after a trip to the farmers market she decided to make some with figs, which are in season. Figs are part of the mulberry family and have a wealth of nutrition like fiber, magnesium, vitamin B, potassium, and more. They’re sweet, have a soft consistency, and lots of seeds that provide a little crunch. Then of course there’s bread and cheese used to make this tartine, but if you source the best quality of both it will only be delicious, nutritious, and satisfying.

All the ingredients, besides the cheese, are from the farmers market. The more you expose yourself to the best quality ingredients, the less you will crave the artificial stuff, which will eventually lead you to making healthier choices for taste rather than for a diet. This is an easy to assemble dish that will impress even the most sophisticated foodie!

Ingredients:
1ea Country Loaf, sliced ½”- ¾” sliced, 6 pieces cut in half on a bias
1ea Humboldt Fog Cheese, mini cut into 12 1oz pieces
12 ea Mission Figs, ripe cut into ½
½ T Thyme, picked
24 Walnuts halves, toasted
2T Italian Parsley Leaves, chopped
¼ c + 1T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Kosher Salt or Fleur de Sal
Freshly Ground Pepper

SweatTheStyle_CattyBoomBatty_FigTartine-3Directions:
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the sliced bread onto a baking tray. Drizzle or brush the oil onto each piece. Toast in the oven for about 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and cool.

Season the halved figs with salt, pepper and thyme. Place a medium cast iron over medium-high heat and coat with 1T oil. Put the figs cut side down onto the cast iron. Sear for about 30 seconds or until golden brown. Remove and cool, then cut in half.

On each piece of toasted bread, place the cheese, 4 pieces of figs, and 2 walnut halves on top. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and garnish with chopped parsley.

Carnations: Flowers Good Enough To Eat

SweatTheStyle_EdibleFlowers-3Before we eat, we eat with our eyes. What better way to naturally create color and texture to your meal than edible flowers. Even if it seems strange to eat flowers chances are, if you’ve ever had artichokes or cauliflower you’ve already eaten them. These colorful carnations were picked up at the farmers market to ensure that they have not been sprayed with any insecticides or pesticides. Instead of using artificial coloring or sugar-laden sprinkles, separate the petals from the stems of these carnations for a natural way to get your next dish poppin’!
