Owned by its head chef, Healthy Chef Express crafts fresh, balanced meals and delivers them to clients' doors for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Each meal is whipped up from local and regional ingredients and delivered on the same day it was cooked so it never has to be frozen or encased in carbonite. The chefs emphasize well-balanced dishes, combining 35% carbohydrates from fresh fruits and vegetables, 45% protein from lean meat, fish, cheese, and other healthy sources, and 20% from good fats, such as sesame oil, avocados, and sources of omega-3s. Sample menu items include mesquite-grilled chicken with sweet-potato-and-chorizo hash and apricot-glazed boneless pork chops. Healthy Chef Express has a gluten-free menu available to accommodate clients who have diet
Mile High Organics delivers organic, non-genetically modified produce, natural groceries, and other eco-friendly goods directly to the home. Freshly stocked produce bins host a swinging soiree of assorted nutrients colorfully frocked in fruited finery and vegetable vestments. The contents changes weekly and, with more than 100 items on their weekly specials page, can include anything from cameo apples to satsuma seedless tangerines. Unlike farmers' markets, backyard gardens, and the Shamrock Shake, Mile High Organics is available year-round. Any desired produce not included in the bin, such as blueberries or locally grown roma tomatoes, can be added at its individual price.
Mile High Organics also carries a line of humanely raised family-farm organic meats, such as turkey, pork, and beef, and pantry stockers include fresh soups, cheeses, baked goods, and spices. The online grocer practices earth-friendly habits by delivering along efficient, geographically planned routes and collecting reusable bins for future use.
The garment-care specialists at this three-cleaner outfit adhere to the GreenEarth Cleaning system, which entails using a nontoxic, pure-silicon solution that is free of petrochemicals and aims to not pollute the air, water, or soil. Since the solution is chemically inert, it’s gentle on even the most delicate of pieces, such as sweaters knit from cashmere or socks woven from ostrich hair. Beyond completing dry-cleaning jobs in as quickly as two days, crews perform alterations, preserve wedding gowns, and clean and condition leather or suede. They also repair shoes, handbags, and luggage and can arrange pickup and delivery for clients in the metro area.
Though the aestheticians at Icon Salon Spa can do anything from a depilating wax to a soothing massage, they are best known for one thing: their color work. That's because owner and stylist Chadda Rhu is a master of corrective color work. She passes on the skills she's learned as a Redken Performing Artist so that her staff can expertly apply color and highlights or fix any hair emergency that comes through the door. For their color work, they rely on both traditional colors and glazes, which they use to target roots or weave through strands in precisely placed foil highlights. They then can trim off damaged ends with a cut that is both stylish and flattering, unlike a face tattoo of bacon.

In addition to cognitive, language, social exercises, the learning center conducts regular cultural and recreational field trips in the Denver area to enrich student’s education.
