How to Reap the Health and Beauty Benefits of Coconut Oil

March 27, 2015 5:04 pm

If you keep up with natural beauty blogs, cooking magazines, or even just browse the racks at your local grocery store, you’ve likely noticed that coconut oil is having a moment in the spotlight. This all-natural oil is positively full of different uses, and these are just a few of the best.

  1. Cooking. Coating a frying pan with coconut oil is a wonderful alternative to using fattening sprays or butters. It gives your food a slightly nutty taste, but it usually doesn’t interfere with the taste of the food itself. You can also use coconut oil to replace shortening or vegetable oil in any recipe.
  2. Lotion. Although most DIY lotions require mixing a few ingredients, coconut oil can be used all on its own. Simply massage a bit into your knees, elbows, or anywhere else that you notice dry skin.
  3. Face wash. Washing your face with coconut oil is much less drying than using a traditional store-bought product, and it helps to remove makeup with ease.
  4. Hair conditioner. Take advantage of coconut oil’s numerous moisturizing benefits by rubbing it into your scalp and hair. Let it absorb into the strands for about two hours, and then shampoo out as usual.

Amarone Ristorante: Authentic Italian Feast

March 18, 2015 4:03 pm

For an authentic Italian meal look no further than Amarone Ristorante, Teaneck’s premiere Italian eatery. Amarone takes classic Italian dishes and imbues them with personal touches, similar to old style home cooked meals. From the warmth of the atmosphere to the wine selection every bit of Amarone conspired to make and unforgettable dining experience. Chianti, a bold Italian wine, seems like the natural choice to accompany dinner of rich pasta and succulent meats. All the favorites are right here. Start out your meal with a fresh Caprese salad or funghi Portobello, which is mushrooms grilled in a garlic, balsamic, and olive oil mix. Fried calamari comes in your choice of sauce, while the Carpaccio features thinly shaved slices of beef with arugula and cheese. Amarone’s signature pasta dish is fettuccine Amarone in a traditional Bolognese sauce. There’s also lobster ravioli in champagne cream sauce, and broccoli and sausage with diced tomato.
