The nutritionists at Optimal Body Balance take on tough weight-loss cases by identifying the underlying causes of a dragging metabolism. They understand that everyone's body works differently and that some people have tried almost everything to lose weight. That's why they customize weight-loss programs to each client's body type, metabolism, and personal goals.
The Oilerie Brookfield offers a wide selection of extra-virgin olive oil, aged balsamic vinegar, and specialty foodstuffs, as well as a variety of cooking classes. Beef up your roasting repertoire on a weekday night or Saturday afternoon with a step-by-step guided tour through the culinary process. Learn how to make marinara, béchamel, and arrabbiata sauces to dress up naked bowls of pasta, or explore the mysteries of paella, an authentic Spanish melting pot of shrimp and rice. Mastering tuna, green bean, and orzo salads, prosciutto ravioli, and beef-and-arugula penne will help avert future dinner-party disasters. After your lesson, you'll receive a complimentary bottle of extra-virgin olive oil, hand-bottled straight from one of the shop's stainless-steel tanks. With olive oils from Greece and Italy and nut oils from California and Japan, as well as a variety of flavors such as truffle and basil, there's an oil for every occasion from Sunday-school potlucks to dinner with Aerosmith.
Organizing Dinner's adroit culinary mavens teach in-home cooking lessons in group-party or concentrated solo formats. During lessons, the charismatic class leader teaches kitchen owners and their whisk-wielding posses how to wrangle their cooking gear to create toothsome treats. Previous sessions have focused on such culinary skills as light cooking and creating appetizers for International Hug a Dolphin Day celebrations. Lessons can also cover such handy topics as saving cash while shopping and using leftovers wisely.
As a branch of the not-for-profit Advocate Health Care system, the Advocate Condell Centre Club has filled two 60,000-square-foot locations with fitness amenities for exercisers of all ages and ability levels, captained by professional and welcoming staff members. The club's philosophy follows the Advocate network's holistic approach, taking on a mission of all-over wellness with features for exercise, rehabilitative therapy, sports performance, and spa services. Much like a territorial wolverine, each of the facilities' elements?from a trove of resistance-training machines to a demonstration kitchen for cooking classes?occupies its own specialized area. Lake County magazine and Libertyville Patch have highlighted the club for its weight-loss systems and free training program for cancer patients, respectively.
