Though their end products are as convenient—if not more—as commonplace frozen dinners, the chefs at Bring Organics Back render convenience healthy by freshly preparing each meal with nutrient-packed, natural ingredients. To keep sodium and sugar levels low, they make every element of the meal from scratch, even sauces and crinoline toothpicks. They design dishes around in-season fruits and vegetables, yielding both high-variety and high-flavor dishes such as pineapple jerk tilapia and a steak and vegetable quesadilla. Once the day’s lunches and dinners are fully cooked, the team packages them into single portions and delivers them to workplaces and homes.

We spoke with Jack Macaluso—Regional Social Media and Web Coordinator at Beauty Schools of America—about how the academies prepare students for careers in the real world and why it's important for the schools to give back to their communities.
On the schools' mission
Above all else, Jack says that the schools "try to focus and harness the students' creativity," while giving them all of the experience and practical skills they need not simply to be prepared to enter the work force, but to succeed and thrive. The relatively lengthy training programs ensure that aspiring stylists, cosmetologists, makeup artists, barbers, and massage therapists fully understand the intricacies of their chosen specialty, as well as what they need to do to continue advancing their future career according to Jack.
On the role of the instructors
With a roster of instructors that includes industry professionals with international spa and salon experience, Beauty Schools of America strives to give attendees a broad view of the numerous options open to them. Jack is also clear that the teachers' guidance isn't limited to classroom environments. When the advanced-level students are allowed hone their talents by performing treatments for actual clients, "an instructor or two will always be there to assist and answer questions," he says.
On the products that the students use during treatments
Students use brand name products like Moroccanoil, Sojourn, Nioxin, and others. Working alongside their instructors at modern service stations, these stylists use these products to craft en vogue cuts, color, styling and therapeutic practices.
On the schools' charitable involvement
Beauty Schools of America embraces opportunities to give back to its communities while providing real-world experience for students at the same time. Jack goes on to describe events where the schools' aspiring barbers and cosmetologists performed complimentary services for underprivileged residents, and he mentions one specific occasion when massage students provided free treatments for community members who participated in a bike ride dedicated to raising awareness about multiple sclerosis.
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.
