Spa Staycation

Martha Stewart Living, August 2012

The words "home spa day" bring to mind DIY mud masks and cucumber slices on your eyes. A more appealing idea? Twenty-four hours' worth of healthy, delicious food. We asked the chefs from some of our preferred wellness-focused getaways to share the recipes behind their most popular dishes. The resulting breakfast, lunch, and dinner are not only tasty and light, but also built on smart strategies that can be applied to whatever you're cooking.

Scott Uehlein from Canyon Ranch reveals a simple trick to cutting calories and carbs in the morning. Deb Morgan of Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, in Massachusetts, shows us how to turn healthy fats into a creamy dressing. And Fritz Zwahlen from Amanyara in Turks and Caicos -- a personal favorite of Martha's -- gives us an easier-than-it-looks technique for sealing in bold flavors. Presumably, you've got the cucumber slices covered.
