Paleo is more than just a diet for The Primitive Nutrition Group. Instead, it's a lifestyle that can help individuals lose weight, build more lean muscle mass, or feel more energetic for everyday activities. At its core, however, the Paleo lifestyle does emphasize the importance of healthy eating. The nutritional philosophy hinges on the idea that the human body is built to subsist on the traditional hunter-gatherer diet: whole, unprocessed foods, non-starch vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. By avoiding items such as grains, legumes, sugar, dairy, and as many preservative-laced foods as possible, the Paleo system encourages a more mindful approach to eating.
Because the Paleo approach can be a little daunting for newcomers, The Primitive Nutrition Group pulls out some of the roadblocks by providing clients with delivered meals that embrace the diet's principles. Designed and prepared by a Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef, the meals change on a weekly basis, and can include dishes such as coconut-crusted tilapia with ginger-spiced cauliflower or pulled pork with an Asian slaw. The breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and daily snacks don't skimp on flavor, although they remain unwaveringly faithful to the nutritional principles of a Paleo lifestyle.

At first glance, Lil Miss Ooh La-la looks a lot like your average up-scale salon, but with a few noticeable differences. Touches of fuschia-pink pepper the interior, popping against the sleek black chairs and elegant black and white wallpaper. The pedicure stations are situated a little closer to the ground, and the white foot baths are filled with colorful, floating flowers. The patrons sip beverages as they relax in plush, pink robes––but instead of champagne, they have pink lemonade in their glasses.
These whimsical touches make all the more sense when you consider the fact that most of the clients here are under age 13. Girls as young as 3 come to Lil Miss Ooh La-la for some age-appropriate pampering or to celebrate a special occasion with their friends. Spa parties can include everything from mani-pedis to glittery up-dos to fashion shows with music, and moms can even get in on the fun too, by enjoying adult-style mani-pedis and a glass of wine.

The French triad encourages customers to contact them for information on any special orders or finger-painted dissertations on gastronomy.

Dotted with group games such as jumbo-sized checkers and foosball, Jumpin' Jamboree’s diverse spread of activities engages diminutive attentions spans and Lilliputian toes alike.
