Grateful, Thankful,



ovember reminds me of how lucky we are to call South

Florida home. Seventeen years ago I packed up my

young family and decided to move South from Long

Island, New York, and never looked back.

I love and miss New York - but Florida is now my

home. And I am grateful.

This Thanksgiving as we gather with family, friends, and friends that

are now family, let’s give thanks for all we are lucky to have here, in

America, in South Florida, in Delray Beach. Look around - we are very

lucky indeed.

The Delray Beach Marketing Cooperative has lots in store for us this

month. On November 3rd we are all invited to attend the presentation of

the All America City Award at old School Square. November 18th is the 31st

Annual Turkey Trot! Dress up as Pilgrims, Turkeys, and Indians (if you’d

like) and trot your way through Anchor Park. And mark your calendars

because on November 30th us the famous 100 Foot Tree lighting! Read all

about what is happening in November inside!

November also brings us the annual Chris Evert / Raymond James Pro-

Celebrity Tennis Classic at the Delray Beach Tennis Center - get your tickets

and watch celebrities play for charity!

Our City Person is Jose Herrera. This dedicated public servant has been

involved with Delray Beach local government from the age of 19 and he has

been instrumental in the development of programs - serving on non profit

Boards, as well as creating a craft beer that is distributed from Daytona to

Key West in over 800 locations! Read about Jose, his story is like chicken

soup for the soul.

On a sad note we report that one of our favorite Delray Beach restaurants

has closed its doors. On October 21st, The House of Siam restaurant in the

Pineapple Grove ended an 18 year successful run due to family obligations.

We will miss them and their beautiful authentic Thai dishes.

Thank you all, our readers, and loyal advertisers for allowing us at

Atlantic Ave Magazine to do what we love. We are grateful and thankful

for all of you.

Be grateful

for small

things, big

things, and

what you want

It is with great sadness that we have to

say ‘Farewell’ to one of Delray’s longest

and finest restaurants; House of Siam

opened their doors in 1999, specializing

in Fine Thai Cuisine.

Regrettably, due to a family illness in

Thailand, Pian & Patrick closed their

doors for the last time on Saturday October

21st . They intend to spend more

time in Thailand right now but have not

ruled out opening another restaurant

when they return full-time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with

them right now and hope to see them

back in Delray Beach very soon.

Sincere Thanks!

After doing my first "12 Week Transformation" I knew I needed to continue to reach my goals. So

I decided to push on for another 12 weeks with a "Can't Stop, Won't Stop" attitude.

When I first joined Ashley Sica Fitness, I had my work cut out for me. With Ashley's guidance and

support, she worked with me to attain my goals. I made a decision that my health is the number

1 priority in my life. A commitment to a lifestyle change and determination to be the best I can

be. I will be 50 years old in November, so there is no better time than the present!

At the age of 42 I was diagnosed with colon cancer, and needless to say, it was a rough road

ahead. Dealing with severe digestive issues--colon resection surgery and full blown menopause

from ovarian removal surgery; I knew I had to change my diet and daily routines. Surviving

cancer is a gift, a second chance at life. I looked around and realized how precious my life was

to me. I called Ashley “my hero” not because she has a magic cure, but because she is the REAL

deal. She gives up a lot in her life to take on the role of mentor to people in all walks of life and for

that I am humbled.

To the other women in this challenge, I am forever grateful. Your words of encouragement,

smiles, support and guidance have been so influential in my success! You are all Rockstars to me!

Here's to being THE BEST YOU can be! For me I am Cancer FREE and "Can't Stop, Won't Stop" | NOVEMber 2017 | 19

The Meridian

Art Experience

(The mAe)

by James Blumenfeld

Born and raised in St. Louis, I moved to Florida

eight years ago from Connecticut. After a stop

in Central Florida, we moved south to Delray

Beach two years ago. I’m told I have a left-brain, rightbrain

marketing gift for finding strategic combinations

that produce business-changing results. I’ve worked

for brands including Hostess, Wonder, Nabisco, Coca

Cola, Citibank, Ameritrade and non-profits that focus

on autism, education, equality, fighting AIDS and the

fine arts. I co-founded with my husband The WilMark

Group and I run our marketing non-profit foundation.

I also serve as President of the Upper School PTO

at the American Heritage School. After receiving my

MBA at Washington University, my career has focused

on marketing, but my life-long appreciation and collection

of art began with my art history BA from The

George Washington University. This led met to open

The Meridian Art Experience (The mAe Gallery) located

in Delray Beach with my partner, Susan Romaine.

My true passion is my family - my husband, two children,

my son-in-law, one grandchild and one on the

way. These days, for me, life is all about the fine art of

living with art in South Florida.

nightclubs for night owls. Here is what you can do

in Delray Beach in November for $50 or less.

Gobble, gobble, everybody. Now that we’re getting into the

holidays, it can seem like you have no time for anything

other than planning, organizing, traveling and shopping. If

you are in need of some quality family time that doesn’t involve

the TV, grab your running shoes and donate your time for a good

cause. Family Volunteer Day is Saturday, November 18 and is the

same day as the 31st Annual Delray Beach Turkey Trot. The race

begins at 7:30 a.m. at Anchor Park, and participants are welcome

to either run or walk down scenic A1A. The weather is beautiful,

the ocean breeze is refreshing, and you’ll feel good knowing you

helped to put a Thanksgiving meal on someone’s table this year.

Proceeds from the race benefit the Keith Straghn Feed the Hungry

Thanksgiving Drive, and organizers are also collecting non-perishable

foods for donation on race day. The registration fee for the 5K

is $25 per adult and $10 per child (14 years old and younger), and

$5 less per person if you choose to sign up for the 5K health

walk. So take advantage of some family time, make some belly room

for Thanksgiving dinner, and help a community member in need.

That’s what the holidays are all about. Anchor Park is located at

340 S. Ocean Blvd. Visit or call

(561) 243-7277 for more information.

Let’s give a hand to all the entrepreneurs out there who take a

risk to make their dreams happen! November is National Entrepreneur

Month and you can find a great example of our local

entrepreneurs at the Winter GreenMarket, which is now open and

ready for our shopping pleasure! You’ll find more than 65 premier

food vendors featuring farm-to-fork produce, just-picked citrus,

tropical fruit and juice, farm fresh eggs, raw milk and butter, artisan

cheese and jams, fragrant baked goods, numerous gluten free, vegan

and organic products, fresh cut flowers, plants, and other unique

gourmet fare. Not to mention, there’s always live music, plenty of

dogs to pet, and fantastic people watching opportunities. The

GreenMarket is located at Old School Square Park and is open

(pretty much) every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. so make

sure you stop by and support your local entrepreneurs who

not only are doing what they love, but also providing us

with delicious and nutritious food so we can live a healthy

life. While you’re down on the Avenue, check out any of

our other local restaurants for lunch or a tasty beverage,

or any of the retail shops, and enjoy having a great

downtown! Old School Square Park is located at 50 N.E.

Second Avenue. Visit or call (561)

276-8640 for more information.

Let’s get back to our artistic side!

Not only does art improve our

quality of life by increasing our

happiness and reducing stress, it also

helps to improve cognitive abilities and

social skills, including communication,

memory and problem-solving. If you

feel like you need a bit more art in your life,

you have great timing. November is Family

Stories Month and you are invited to grab the

26 | November 2017 |

family paint a landscape story at the Morikami Museum and

Japanese Gardens, where they’re hosting a three-week Sumi-e

Landscape Ink Painting class. Sumi-e is a form of Japanese ink

painting that was brought from China in the 12 Century. Primarily

done in black ink, the name literally means “charcoal

drawing” in Japanese. You will be able to grind your own ink

using an ink stick and a grinding stone, as well as learn how to

hold and utilize brushes to create the primary sumi-e brushstrokes.

The cost for the three-week class is $45 and includes

all materials, including brushes, ink stick, ink stone, papers,

and more. Not only do you and your family members get to

learn a new technique, you will each leave with your sumi-e

drawing! The Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens is located

at 4000 Morikami Park Road. Visit

or call (561) 495-0233 for more information and to register.

Instead of the bad, let’s focus on the good, and show a little

more gratitude. November is National Gratitude Month

and, even though every time is a good time to appreciate

what you have, this is a good reminder. Gratitude literally

means the quality of being thankful and a readiness to show

appreciation for and to return kindness. It’s no secret that we

all appreciate our Avenue merchants’ kindness by sticking

with us through season and off-season, so let’s focus on them

for our holiday shopping. Small Business Saturday is Saturday,

November 25 and there are so many of our local businesses

that are participating, which is great! Not to mention,

the mall is the worst place on the planet, and those vendors

are not invested in growing our community. So, park in one

of the many parking lots (or ride your bike!), grab lunch and

some must-have-for-shopping wine, and peruse the Avenue

with your friends and family. You are guaranteed to find items

that aren’t mainstream, which makes gift giving even better.

There are a ton of shops along the Avenue so just visit your

favorites, or find a new favorite, and happy shopping! Please

visit or call (561) 243-1077

for a listing of downtown merchants or for more information.

Whether you’re a yogi or not, yoga has numerous

wonderful benefits. Personal studies show that it

can help lower blood pressure, reduce road rage

and give you a healthier outlook on life (but who’s counting).

November 1 is Stress Awareness Day and is a really good day

to take a deep breath, put on your exercise pants and make

friends with the mat. Family Yoga Zen Zone is a great place

to start because they’re a new local business but with plenty

of local history. The best part is that you can bring your

kids! FYZZ provides individuals a chance to disconnect, relax

and refocus, and bond with family members in a comfortable

environment. Participants report that they experience

less stress and anxiety, better communication, and an overall

increase of self-awareness just from attending class! Classes

are designed for specific age ranges, abilities and skill levels,

and there is definitely something for everyone. You can even

choose to benefit from a class with your child or let them play

in the children’s room. So, hang out with your family, enjoy the

downward dog, find some peace and reduce your stress. FYZZ

is located at 1201 N. Federal Highway. Visit

or call (561) 303-1005 for more information

and to register for classes. | NOVEMber 2017 | 27

The Noel Diary

by Richard PAUL eVAns

Released November 7, 2017

Jason Chercher is not doing well in love or

life. Just two weeks after his wife leaves him

he receives a phone call that his estranged

mother has passed away, days before Christmas—leaving

her home and all her belongings

to him. Frankly, he would like to see everything

just burned. But curiosity about his

past and anxiety about his future fuels him

to make the drive from Salt Lake City to her

home in Medford, Oregon. Maybe cleaning

out her house will be slightly less depressing

than spending the holidays, alone, watching

re-runs of Christmas classics.

While going through her things he comes

upon her diary and the record of his childhood.

He learns that his mother suffered

from severe depression and during that difficult

time he was taken care of by a young,

unwed mother who was living with his

family. The only clue he has to the woman’s

identity is her name: Noel, which is an eerily

fitting discovery on Christmas Eve. As

Jason reads the diary he begins to uncover

the source of his pain in relationships and

understand that what he believed to be the

truth of his past was actually a lie. That’s

when he begins a journey to find Noel, wondering

if she might hold the truth he needs

to bring him peace and love.

Released November 14, 2017

young veteran of the US Army, River

A Roulet is struggling to shake the horrors

of his past. War is behind him, but the

memories remain. Desperate to distract

himself from the images haunting him daily,

River abandons the world he knows and

flees to the country he’s always dreamed of

visiting: Brazil.

Rio de Janeiro is everything he hoped for

and more. In the lead-up to Carnaval, the

city is alight with music, energy, and life.

With a few friends at his side, River seems

to be pulling his life together at last.

Then he meets the enchanting Natal, an

impassioned journalist and free spirit—who

lives with the gangster that rules much of Rio.

As their romance blossoms, River and

Natal flee together into the interior of Brazil,

where they are pursued by the sadistic

drug lord, Tio Amato, and his men. When

River is forced to kill one of those men, the

chase becomes even deadlier. Not only is the

powerful drug boss after them, the Brazilian

government is on their trail as well.

Will the two lovers escape—and will River

ever be free of the bloody memories that

haunt him?

Talking With Your

A Guide For Parents

by Raelene Dundon

Released November 21, 2017

Telling your child about their autism diagnosis

can be daunting. Will they be better

off for knowing? What’s the right way to tell

them? Should you inform anyone else too?

As a mother of two children on the spectrum,

with over ten years’ experience as a

psychologist specialising in childhood autism,

Raelene Dundon has all the tips you’ll

need. In this concise book, she sets out

case studies, examples and resources that

will equip you to make your own informed

choices and help your whole family to live

well with autism. Part One provides ways to

tell children of different ages and development

levels about their diagnosis, including

photocopiable and downloadable worksheets

designed to help diagnosed children

understand autism, and gives advice

on what to do if they react in a negative or

unexpected way to the news. Part Two explores

the pros and cons of sharing the diagnosis

with others, including family, friends,

school staff and your child’s classmates,

and guides you through what to do if others

don’t understand or accept the diagnosis.

Power Struggle

by Carolyn Arnold

Released November 28, 2017

It’s been ten months since Detective Madison

Knight almost died at the hands of

Russian Mafia hit man Constantine Romanov.

She hasn’t seen hide nor hair of him

since he escaped police custody and fled to

Russia soon after his arrest, except now her

latest murder investigation gives her reason

to believe he’s back in town. Seeing as the

victim is the man who killed her grandfather,

her perspective may be a little skewed,

but with the MO smacking of Constantine

and the victim’s connections to the mob, she

finds it hard to be objective. Still, she’s doing

her best to consider all the evidence.

When she receives a threatening letter

from Constantine, however, her suspicions

are confirmed. And he’s made it abundantly

clear that not only does he plan to finish

what he started but he has her family and

loved ones in the crosshairs, too. Madison

vows to do whatever it takes to save them,

but as the hours race by, the body count

rises. And the stakes only get higher when

Madison’s sister, Chelsea, goes missing.

Now, Madison’s only play is to take Chelsea’s

disappearance for what it really means:

Constantine is calling Madison out for one final

showdown. And they won’t both survive…

TRAVEL | Caribbean Islands

By Jeff Dash

Caribbean Island’s

Recovery Update

Hurricane Irma was reported

to be the largest hurricane on

record in the Atlantic Ocean with

Category 5 winds exceeding

185 mph. The results of this

natural phenomenon have

impacted Caribbean islands and

will require herculean efforts by

the island nations.

Relying on the upcoming tourism season, the devastated islands

are anxious to get electricity, vital services and infrastructure

back online just as quickly as humanly possible.

Hurricane Maria, missing the U.S. mainland, destroyed the U.S.

territory of Puerto Rico with a Category 4 direct hit on September

20th. Power outage was initially 100%. There are still a reported

15,000 U.S. military and FEMA workers on the island. A majority

of the population is still without power, and still cut off from food,

clean water and shelter. Hospitals which were running low on fuel

and generators, are just now seeing some improvement in the recovery.

Cell phone service will be slower in the recovery, as close

to 95 percent of the towers were knocked out of service. It is an

unprecedented tragedy for our 3.5 million U.S. citizens.

Initially, the three cruise lines operating in the Caribbean in September,

Norwegian, Royal Caribbean and Carnival all pitched in to

pick up tourists and residents, looking to get off the islands, as airports

were closed. FEMA has chartered the Bahamas Cruise Line’s

Grand Celebration to house the first responders and displaced

residents to help in the recovery effort. The ship is docked in St.

Thomas. They have also chartered Carnival Cruise Line’s Fascination,

which is docked in Puerto Rico.

Here are damage reports relating to

cruise line itineraries, island destinations

and updated hotel closures:

The Virgins, St. Thomas and St. John received extensive damage.

Sugar Bay Resort sustained enough damage to render it closed for

the rest of 2017. Richard Branson’s Necker Island in the British

Virgin Islands was heavily damaged. He rode out the Category 5

storm in his wine cellar. The port has reopened. The shops in town,

and by the pier welcome your business. The few hotels which are


Hurricane Irma Pummels Turks & Caicos

open may be booked with the contractors, who have to rebuild the


Sustaining a direct hit, St Barts lost not only it’s power and communication,

but also its airport. St. Maartin lost its airport, now reopened.

The three Sonesta properties and the Westin Dawn Beach

suffered extensive damage, while the Hotel Riu Palace is reportedly

fine and open. Antigua was largely unscathed, and St. Kitts had

minimal damage. Anguilla report moderate to severe damage, but

Barbuda is devastated.

Sandals Resorts report that Beaches Turks and Caicos is closed

until December 14. The Sandals Grand Antigua will reopen December

20. The Bahamas and Nassau locations are open.

Still as big as they were, Irma and Maria only affected a small

slice of the vast Caribbean Sea. While they left a trail of destruction

across a string of Eastern Caribbean islands, the

storms didn’t touch the Western Caribbean--home to more

than a dozen cruise ports including Cozumel, and Costa Maya

Mexico; Falmouth, Jamaica; and Harvest Caye, Belize. Nor did

it affect Southern Caribbean cruise destinations such as Aruba,

Bonaire, Curacao, St. Lucia and Barbados. Also open are

Havana, Cuba, Nassau and Freeport, Bahamas and Key West.

We advise the discerning traveler to work closely with

your professional travel consultant to determine your best

How To Fix That

“Pain In The Neck”

Neck pain can be, well, a “pain in the neck.” It is estimated that

10% of Americans (that’s 30,500,496 people!) are currently

suffering from neck pain. The traditional treatment prescribed

by physicians utilizing pain relievers, muscle relaxants, rest,

and possible soft collar application is no longer the acceptable

standard of care as this regimen only produces symptomatic relief.

According to a landmark report furnished by the Task Force

on Neck Pain and its Associated Disorders (which can be

found in the peer reviewed medical journal Spine), some of

the most effective treatments for neck pain include manipulation,

mobilization, massage, and exercise. In addition, cutting-edge research

is exposing the benefits of brain-based therapeutic exercises

for the relief and prevention of neck pain due to the brain’s intimate

control of neck muscles.

The neck is the most dynamic part of the spine. Its main functions

are to protect the spinal cord, provide the foundation for the

skull, and act as a bridge connecting the skull with the rest of the

body. However, it has to be flexible enough to allow movement

in six different planes. This makes the neck the most

vulnerable region of the spine to injury. It is lined with a

high concentration of compression sensitive sensors

(joint mechanoreceptors), which when triggered provide

a high powered stimulation to the brain which

is essential for its health. The small muscles which

surround the neck play a large role in the overall

health of the neck. Reflexes generated in these

muscles in response to stretch relay through a certain

part of the brain termed the cerebellum which

then fire back to keep these same muscles strong.

As a result, brain-based therapies geared towards

the cerebellum produce amazing results concerning

the overall stability of the neck.

The most common neck complaints

involve three distinct

structures: the disc,

the posterior joints

of the spine also

known as the

facet joints, and

the soft tissue regions

including the

ligaments and tendons surrounding the spine. Injury to the discs

which are found between the vertebrae and act as shock absorbers

will produce moderate to severe neck pain with associated pain

into the arm and hand. The pain may be relieved momentarily with

elevation of the affected arm over the head. Facet joint injuries will

also manifest as neck and arm pain but may start without an offensive

behavior like a trauma and will typically produce pain down

the outer arm into the hand. Lastly, soft tissue injury will normally

produce localized pain with severe restriction of movement. Nausea

and headache may accompany the pain. This is commonly

found after motor vehicle accidents.

Many new, advanced therapies are combining physical

medicine such as mobilization exercises, stretch/

strengthening exercises, myofascial release, traction,

decompression, and nutrition with brain-based

exercises targeting the cerebellum region of the

brain. This approach not only focuses on the

neck structures themselves but also the regions

of the brain that control the deep intrinsic

muscles of the neck producing greater

stability. Stop hurting and start living.

“Fall Into Peeling”

With A Pumpkin Peel

Autumn has arrived in Delray Beach, and although we may feel

refreshed that cooler air is on the horizon, the long, hot, sunny

summer days may have left our skin craving refreshment.

Did you know that the vegetable (arguably a fruit) most symbolic

of Fall is also one of the best kept secrets for skin care? Pumpkins

signify harvest, holidays and loved ones gathered around

the dinner table in celebration. They also conjure visions of Jack-O-Lanterns,

scary Halloween faces, and the Mount Vesuvius pimple that may

emerge on the chin after over indulging in trick or treat candy. Surprisingly,

pumpkins can also be the source of healthy, radiant skin throughout

the holiday and winter seasons.

That’s right—pumpkin is no longer just for pie and carving funny

faces from a fruit. It can also be used as a peel leaving the skin feeling


This amazing face rejuvenating pumpkin peel revitalizes skin because

it contains the highest concentration of salicylic acid of any plant,

providing potent keratolytic properties (skin smoothing and softening)

and pore cleansing action. Additionally, pumpkin boasts more than 100

beneficial components with the highest concentration of vitamins A, C,

and beta-carotene found in any fruit or vegetable. Its aroma is divine,

elevating the spa experience to an ethereal level.

The perfecting pumpkin peel has simultaneous actions: it exfoliates

and detoxifies as it draws impurities out of the skin while introducing

vitamins, enzymes, and nutrients into the skin. It is an excellent treatment

for those seeking new radiance for the holidays, as it stimulates

circulation, promotes an antioxidant healing process and provides vitamin

nutrition at the cellular level. The perfecting pumpkin peel will even

out discolorations (melasma) of the skin and lighten age spots; it will

shrink pore size and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Unlike more harsh chemical peels, there is no downtime with the

pumpkin peel. This peel will ensure that your skin will be glowing with a

healthy radiance from the moment each dreamy experience concludes.

Ahhh Pumpkin! It’s more than a decorative Halloween tradition or a

seasonal pie filling. It is one of the most nutritional sources of skin healing

vitamins and minerals ever combined in a luxurious dermatologic

spa facial.

At any age, don’t we all need a “treat” in the season of pumpkins and

goblins? The skin perfecting pumpkin peel will bewitch your skin and

leave it with a mischievous, enchanting glow.

Five Long-Term Impacts

Of Avoiding Dental Care

Seeing your dentist and regularly

brushing and flossing have lasting

impacts on dental health.

There are a myriad of reasons why you may avoid seeing your

dentist, and these might include a lack of insurance, your

dental anxiety, an inflexible work schedule, or more. While

you might not feel the negative effects of a lax dental schedule, it

will most definitely add up after time and create lasting impacts on

your smile. It is not only important to have a great at-home dental

regimen, which includes brushing twice a day and flossing at least

once a day, but it is also important to visit your dentist and hygienist

for regularly scheduled appointments.

Tooth Decay

Decay equals cavities. Studies show that bacteria can survive, overgrow

and become unbalanced in one’s mouth, putting the tooth’s

enamel at risk. Once the bacteria eats away at the enamel (which happens

minutes after you ingest food or sugary liquids), your risk for developing

cavities is increased, and cavities cannot be reversed. Small

cavities can be repaired by fillings, but, if the cavity is too large for a

simple filling, the problem can be much more involved and expensive.

Gum Disease

Most people don’t know they have gum disease until it is in the

very later stages of the disease, because gum disease is usually painless.

It causes not only irritation to the gum, but can also lead to

swelling around the tooth. Not only that, gum disease can also cause

your tooth to loosen, shift and become elongated, creating a greater

risk for losing teeth.

Oral Cancer

There are several factors that can cause oral cancer, and include

smoking, alcohol consumption and exposure to UV light. Your dental

team should be checking for any signs of oral cancer at your regularly

scheduled hygiene appointments, so you should know if there are

any problem areas that are cause for concern. Research shows that

there are roughly 50,000 Americans who are diagnosed with oral

cancer each year, so it’s just another reason to make sure you see

your dental team regularly. If you notice a lump, bump or sore that is

present for longer than two weeks, see your dentist right away for an

oral cancer screening.

Painful Toothaches and Tooth Loss

If cavities or tooth issues are left untreated, these issues will eventually

progress into tooth pain that requires more invasive treatment,

such as a root canal or extraction. The infections of the gum

can lead to inflammation, which can result in the separation of the

tooth from the gum, causing the tooth to become very loose to the

point of falling out. Not to mention, tooth pain is incredibly severe

and abscesses (painful, swollen lumps that are filled with pus) are

very dangerous for your overall health.

Risk of Developing Other Diseases

The accumulation of bacteria in the mouth can eventually cause systemic

problems affecting other parts of your body. People who have

gum problems are more than two times likely to develop cardiac problems

like stroke and heart diseases. Additionally, the likelihood of developing

respiratory issues like dementia, erectile problems, diabetes

complications and dysfunction are greatly increased. Gum disease is

also linked to pre-term birth and low birth weight in babies.

The goal of your dental team is to help you keep your teeth for a lifetime,

so give them the opportunity to do so! Not only is it important to

maintain a healthy at-home regimen, but it is also imperative to see your

dentist and hygienist for regularly scheduled visits. At these visits, they

will monitor your dental health, help you maintain a friendly bacterial

balance, check for cavities and oral cancer, and keep your teeth free of

plaque and stain. Take these necessary measures to treat small issues

before they become bigger problems that require additional treatment.

Reasons Your Fitness

Results Might Be Lacking

You’re eating right, exercising and the

results just aren’t there. Here are 6 factors

you may not realize that might be holding

you back from seeing the results you want!

1. Boredom

Doing anything when you’re bored is totally unmotivating, let

alone trying to get our sweat on in the gym. You are less likely

to push yourself, and slacking will come easy! It’s time to switch

things up and try a new class or workout program. Working out

doesn’t always have to be tons of fun, but you should enjoy it!

2. Quitting Too Soon

Most of the time our minds quit before our bodies do. If

you’re not pushing yourself during each workout, your

results are going to be slow and minimal at best. If you

quit 2 seconds after that burn sets in, you’re giving up

too early. It’s not necessarily “no pain no gain,” but it

is definitely no burn no gain!

Don’t be so quick to throw

that dumbbell down when

the going gets tough. Think

about your goal when you

are ready to give up!

3. Lifting Light

To create a change you need the

right resistance. Some trainers and

fitness gurus swear by lifting pencils,

but my professional opinion is

the heavier the better - within safe

guidelines, of course! Unless you’re

taking steroids or your diet is in huge

surplus of junk, lifting heavy will not make

you look masculine.

4. Blaming Genetics

We’ve all heard quite often, “She/he has amazing

genetics” or, “You’ve always been fit your whole life.”

Where sometimes this is true, it is most often not the case. Thinking

you have “bad” genes is no excuse to slack on your fitness regimen.

There are very few genetic issues that most can’t overcome, it

might just take a little extra work. People use genetics as an excuse

for lack of results, when in reality they are not putting in the work

and effort required.

5. Relying Too Much on Cardio

While cardio definitely has its benefits, too many

people skip on weight training. Cardio helps fat

loss and keeps your heart healthy, but you will

not maximize results on cardio alone. The best

shaped bodies come from the perfect mix of

resistance training and high intensity cardio.

6. Not Enough Sweat Equity

All too often people give up because it’s

been 3 weeks and they’re not where they

want to be! Fitness takes time! Each time

I came back post-pregnancy I would

work for months with little to no change,

then suddenly the weight would fall off

and everything would fall into place. So

give it time. One of the hardest parts

about fitness is to keep going when results

are slow. It takes months for the

average person to really start seeing

serious change, so be consistent and

stick with it.

Living Life

The Aveda Way

Texture Tonic

Tulasara Renew Morning Creme

It’s always sunny at One Aveda.

Just walk into their lifestyle salon

and feel the hushed sense of

calm and camaraderie.

That’s the mission of the Aveda namesake and it’s also the

goal of this neighborhood salon celebrating seven years in

business. There’s a good reason why they continue to prosper

amidst the growing competition.

“We believe in the Aveda Culture,” said owner Sue Anger. “We are

a team of eight stylists and two assistants and our goal is to help

our clients feel calm, relaxed and beautiful.”

You bet they do. Everyone who sits down for a treatment at One Aveda

gets a stress relieving hand massage while having their hair shampooed.

They also get a stress busting shoulder and scalp massage.

But that’s not all. They also offer calming Aveda Tea - certified

organic and caffeine-free with an herbal infusion, licorice root and

peppermint. Picture yourself surrounded by natural wood, a plant

wall and people just waiting to make you feel wonderful and look


“We offer this tea because it is in sync with Aveda culture and

so are we,” said Ariel, Sue’s daughter and manager of One Aveda.

According to Aveda wisdom, “Care for the Earth as you care for

yourself. Our soothing, certified organic, caffeine-free herbal infusion—with

licorice root and peppermint—calms your senses and

promotes a sense of well-being.”

You can’t really argue with that assessment. Who doesn’t want to be

calm and refreshed with a sense of well-being? Let me count the ways.

As an Aveda Concept Salon, One Aveda is committed to Aveda’s

vision of connecting beauty with well-being and the environment.

It’s been the way of Aveda since it was created in 1978 by Horst


The Aveda way is steeped in rituals founded by Ayurveda medicine,

based on balancing the mind, body and emotion. These rituals

have the power to make positive change within each person.

That’s why One Aveda adheres to these disciplines and disperses

them to their clients.

“I just love Sue. She is the best colorist and stylist. The salon is

friendly, fun and Sue and her staff are awesome people who do excellent

work. Try Aveda One, you won’t be sorry, “said Lynn Holden.

As a means to this lofty goal (that of harmony within and without)

Aveda introduces Tulasāra renew morning crème. Inspired

by morning renewal in Ayurveda, the tulasāra renew morning

creme is powerfully 97% naturally derived* soft creme that instantly

brightens, smooths fine lines and helps strengthen skin’s

defense against environmental toxins at the beginning of each day.

According to Justina Mejia-Montane, VP of Global Product development,

the cream has licorice and molasses extract, that helps

reduce discoloration and dark spots. It also promotes even looking

skin tone over time. The mineral-derived light-reflecting ingredients

provide a soft focus, radiant finish.

The tulasāra renew morning creme (over time) visibly firms,

lifts and reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles with biopeptide,

which supports the skin’s natural production of collagen.

It also has sigesbeckia extract. It also has oleosomes, which are

Elle, Christa, Emma, Sue, Tommy, Ariel, Rhonda, Maria, Priscella

64 | NOVEMbER 2017 |

Aveda Hand Massage Ritual

natural oil bodies found in plants as well as anti-oxidants

from rice bran, vitamin E and ginger.

Mejia-Montane also wants people to know that 80 percent of

aging is due to environmental factors. “This means that you have

more control over your aging destiny than you think.” That’s why

One Aveda (Sue and Ariel) want you to know they have Aveda

Daily Light Guard Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to help prevent

aging from the sun and the elements of the outdoors.

Their other new product – designed to make your hair look

touched by the ocean breeze (in a good way) is called Texture

Tonic. Suitable for all hair types, it creates texture in the form

of subtle waves. This natural product - texture tonic – is plantbased

and made with cane sugar and Epsom salt to “create

naturally tousled texture and flexible hold, while leaving hair

infused with natural shine for an effortlessly ‘undone’ look.”

Apparently these natural looks are part of what draws clients

to One Aveda Salon. The other thing is their friendly and

accommodating nature. “We use rituals of renewal as part of

your visit to One Aveda Salon. These complimentary stress

relieving customs offer a high tough experience and a sense of

well-being to all or our guests. They expose you to plant and

flower aromas scientifically proven to reduce stress. Combined

with the power of touch, these rituals are a powerful

way to invoke relaxation and contentment,” said Ariel.

Samantha Beauvais feels the difference. “I love the layout

and vibe of this salon and everyone is so kind and accommodating.

I especially love Maria who did an excellent job on my

hair. I was nervous before going because I never love a new

stylist, but she was great. I definitely recommend One Aveda.”

Check out Aveda One and feel the difference.

Realtor Allyson Sullivan Says

The Local Market Remains Strong

Allyson Sullivan has secured her position as a dominant Realtor in the downtown Delray marketplace

Despite a recent hurricane,

the real estate market is

heating up in Palm Beach

and locally in Delray Beach.

Realtor Allyson Sullivan of Lang Realty says Hurricane Irma

didn’t negatively affect the local real estate market.

“Many people are asking how this hurricane has affected

the real estate market; and I think to myself “Well, we definitely

dodged a bullet locally. I have been in the real estate industry

through quite a few hurricanes, and have never seen a correlation

with a bad hurricane and affecting our market. Once October came

and power was restored, it was like nothing really happened. There

were many articles that said the hurricane actually helped to stimulate

the economy in some sense,” said Allyson.

What the hurricane did affect was some changes with insurance

and flood zones.

“There are a lot of changes and new information coming up with

insurance, and changes with flood zones. More people in the state

of Florida are required to have flood insurance. It’s pretty inexpensive

and it’s a good thing to have because you never know when

a flood could happen. The entire state of Florida is classified as a

flood zone, and it’s important to have flood insurance in case of a

storm surge,” said Allyson.

With the Real Estate season in full swing, Allyson has expanded

her team by adding more real estate agents.

“I am expanding my team with more agents to further provide

for my clients’ needs and services. I was really pleased that 2016

proved to be my best year in sales, and I am on track to increasing

last year’s numbers,” said Allyson.

Although she doesn’t have a crystal ball to see into the future of

real estate in Delray Beach and Palm Beach County, Allyson Sullivan

believes business will continue to soar and the local real estate

market will continue to flourish.

“I don’t have a crystal ball but being in the business for so long, I

66 | NOVEMbER 2017 |

do feel like I have an innate sense of foreseeing the future. I am

certain that in 2018 we will continue to have a steady market.

We are currently in an ever expanding market where rising

prices out of the downtown areas are further populating other

areas of the county,” said Allyson, adding, “At the same time,

many people are coming from other states and moving to the

area for a second home or even full time! A huge advantage

of moving to the area is the weather. In Delray Beach, a large

amount of people enjoy the walkable lifestyle in the City and

on Atlantic Avenue. New construction remains very hot!”

With deep roots in Delray Beach, Allyson Sullivan is excited

about continuing to expand her team. Well known throughout

Palm Beach County for world class real estate representation,

Allyson has earned the respect of thousands of buyers and

sellers alike including Forbes-Lister’s, CEO’s and professional

athletes. Allyson has been a licensed Realtor in Palm Beach

County for over a decade. Whether you are buying or selling

your home, when working with Allyson you can be sure you’re

engaging in the services of one of Palm Beach’s finest Realtors.

Allyson’s local knowledge and wealth of contacts makes her

a perfect fit for assisting her clients with all their real estate

needs. She is also growing her business with marketing and

advertising. Allyson is continuing to use direct mail, and will

be incorporating videos to her social media program.

“I am looking forward to seeing where my business grows

using new more current marketing techniques with traditional

marketing,” she said. You can see a series of her education

videos on her website at She has a new

educational series of videos on flood insurance and more!

for you!

the GRIFe LAW firm

By nicol jenkins | Photos by Ben Hicks

Attorney Michael Grife Gets Justice

For Medical Malpractice Clients

Medical Malpractice cases are extremely complex – and

Boca Raton Attorney Michael K. Grife of The Grife Law Firm

is just the guy to handle them. Whether dealing with a major

medical malpractice case, or a personal injury case that requires

experts such as accident reconstructionists and biomechanical

engineers, there is no case too complex for Mr. Grife.

The Grife Law Firm has been successful in securing large financial

recoveries, including in the multi-millions, for his clients

who have experienced a serious personal injury or their families

in a wrongful death. If he believes in the case, Mr. Grife will take

cases that other attorneys have turned down and succeed in helping

the client receive the monetary remuneration to pay their medical

expenses and recover for their loss of enjoyment of life. The entire

goal of the firm is client satisfaction and restoration to a better life.

Multi-Million Dollar Advocate Forum Attorney Michael K. Grife of

The Grife Law Firm or Dedicated to serving justice for his clients

– Michael K. Grife of The Grife Law Firm or Personal Injury and

Medical Malpractice Attorney Michael K. Grife of The Grife Law Firm

After suffering a serious personal injury due to the negligence

of others or is the victim of medical malpractice, it is important to

have a trusted and experienced attorney who will fight to seek justice

for you. Boca Raton attorney Michael Grife has been fighting for

the rights of the injured since 2005. He is a member of the Multi-

Million Dollar Advocates Forum and he is AV-Preeminent Rated by

the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review.

Due to the complexities of medical malpractice cases, and the resources

an attorney must spend, not many law firms are willing to

handle medical malpractice cases – but The Grife Law Firm will. A

medical malpractice attorney must be able to learn and be comfortable

with the medical field that is involved and the case, and the

firm must have enough resources to fight against major companies

and hospitals. It is important to work with a lawyer who understands

the unique rigors of a medical malpractice case based on

Florida law. These cases are much more detail-oriented than many

other types of personal injury claims.

Florida medical malpractice laws make it difficult to file a case.

There is a detailed pre-lawsuit screening process that must be conducted

before you can file. You must submit an affidavit from a specialist

in the same field as the healthcare provider you are trying

to sue which reads that your doctor deviated from the standards

established by the medical profession. If you fail to follow this process,

your case can be thrown out right away.

In addition to the complexities of the laws, medical malpractice

cases are extremely expensive to pursue. You will need a team of

medical experts who can evaluate your case and testify on your

behalf. In most instances, you will need an expert on liability (to

testify that the healthcare providers were negligent) and an expert

on causation (to prove that the negligence actually caused

your damages). Other times, you will need experts to conduct life

care plans for future medical costs. All of this requires a significant

amount of resources.

Mr. Grife has been handling medical malpractice cases in the

Boca Raton area for over a decade. He has extensive experience

with these claims, and he understands the unique issues associated

68 | NOVEMbER 2017 |

The plush office of The Grife Law Firm located

in The Atrium at Broken Sound in Boca Raton

with them. The Grife Law Firm possesses the resources necessary

to pursue your case to completion.

“I have recovered millions of dollars for victims of serious medical

negligence, when doctors do harm instead of heal. Medical malpractice

is so complex; whereas accident cases are usually more

straightforward. There are medical malpractice statutes in place in

Florida where you can’t get to first base without having an affidavit

confirming the medical negligence from an expert in the same

field as the doctor. I only work with the top experts in each field,”

explained Michael.

“Medical malpractice is very niche. You really have to know what

you are doing and have the capital and cash flow to invest hundreds

of thousands of dollars into these cases if you do them the right way.

You need to hire a lawyer that will fight for you, like I will. I have

the experience and tenacity to pursue your case the right way and

get you the results you deserve. Hospitals and medical practices

have unlimited budgets, so you need a law firm that can match their

spending. I will go to the mattresses for you and fight!” he said.

The Grife Law Firm has many success stories. Mr. Grife has been

a multi-million dollar advocate for medical malpractice, and Super

Lawyers has recognized him for his medical malpractice cases. In

one such case, he was able to help a client who had a catastrophic

medical event but was misdiagnosed in the emergency room. The

misdiagnosis caused his client to end up in a wheelchair and he

faced countless medical bills. Michael was able to get him a settlement

to help him live independently despite his handicap. “The

scales of justice were evened, and balanced in his favor,” said Michael,

referring to the case.

A former medical malpractice client, who said her doctor botched

a surgery, praised Michael for his attentiveness and aggressive approach.

“I thought Mike was fantastic from day one. He was a gem

of an attorney; I have never met an attorney to be so caring for his

clients. I would highly recommend him. He listens, talks to you like

a person, not a number, and takes his time and doesn’t rush you. He

works very hard to make his clients happy.”

Michael Grife has been described as fearless, aggressive, caring

and compassionate towards his clients. “I move cases very swiftly

and with great care and attention to detail. I work with top-notch

experts to map out the entire case at inception. My style is very aggressive,

very thorough, professional, ethical and with the greatest

care and concern for my clients and their needs,” he said.

Since law school, the law has been a natural fit for Michael Grife.

Upon graduation, he worked for a major law firm where he was made

partner. He then left and started his own firm, The Grife Law Firm,

which has seen a large amount of growth since opening in 2014.

“My most rewarding professional achievements are happy clients!

When I first meet clients, they are hurting and in need of assistance.

They need someone to fight for them. That’s what I do. I

take on reckless corporations and hospitals and I balance the scales

of justice in my clients’ favor.”

What separates The Grife Law Firm from the rest is their pure

will to get justice for their clients. “We have a will to succeed and

get justice for our clients. That will is stronger than the opposition,

and sometimes that carries the day,” said Michael.

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon

There’s a saying that

excellence speaks for itself.

And, in most cases this

seems to be true.

When we see a great person (or place) it just speaks to our

inner core. It convinces us that the trip is worthy or the

place is somewhere we want to be.

That is the case when in the company of Dr. John R. Pasqual. The

Board Certified Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon, who opened a Delray

Beach office six years ago, doesn’t talk a lot about himself. Instead

he talks about his team – that recently increased in size to meet the

demands of his practice.

“I could not do what I do without my staff. I really appreciate

everyone who works here.”

And those who work for Dr. Pasqual are a happy dedicated group.

They are not only pleasant but personable, smart and involved.

That is one reason the practice continues to grow. And the reason

Dr. Pasqual recently hired a third surgical assistant to his staff.

To know Dr. Pasqual is to know that he follows in the same illustrious

medical footsteps as his family. His father, Harry, is an Oral &

Maxillofacial Surgeon and his mother, Roberta, has a PhD in physiology

and retired from clinical medical research in Anesthesiology.

Dr. Pasqual doesn’t have to tout his accomplishments, his resume

speaks for him. He went to the University of Pittsburgh School of

Dental Medicine, did a four-year surgery residency at Case Western

Reserve University MetroHealth Medical Center and spent two

years there as an Anesthesia Fellow.

He did externships in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at the University

of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Montefiore University Hospital

and at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio.

Dr. Pasqual is also a Diplomat of the International Congress of

Oral Implantologists and a Diplomat of the American Board of Oral

and Maxillofacial Surgery.

That is one reason that he is on the faculty (as a Clinical Associate

Professor) at University of Florida School of Dental

Medicine and in the Department of Oral Implantology at Temple

University. Dr. Pasqual is also a Delegate to the Florida Dental

Association and sits on the committee for Dental Education and

Licensing for the State of Florida. Dr. Pasqual is on the board of

directors for the Bethedsda Hospital Foundation as well as being

an active staff member.

That is one reason his waiting room was packed on a rainy

Thursday afternoon. Patients know they will get excellent medical

care and that they can rely on Dr. Pasqual’s precise skills and dedication

to his craft.

Dr. Pasqual is experienced in facial surgery - from dental implants

and extractions to advanced facial reconstruction with general

anesthesia or IV sedation.

That’s why his patients have nothing but reverie for the man who

makes their smile glisten and their Oral & Maxillofacial problems

resolve with proper treatment. “Dr. Pasqual is an excellent surgeon.

He pays attention to details and has an excellent knowledge of medicine.

He is passionate about his work, compassionate with patients

and takes the time to make patients feel comfortable. I’ve never

met anyone like him,” said Dr. Erin of Naples.

At the Pasqual Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Center the Operat-

70 | NOVEMbER 2017 |

ing Room rivals those in a hospital. On the wall of this pristine

operating room is a 42-inch monitor that allows Dr. Pasqual

a clear digital view of patients facial structure and teeth.

“With technology so advanced today, dentistry has evolved

immensely. We use 3-D imaging for diagnosis and a treatment

plan for our patients.”

Dr. Pasqual also has a state-of-the-art diagnostic tool

called an i-Cat Cone Beam Imaging machine. “The i-Cat Imaging

machine is a great diagnostic tool for pathology, trauma,

facial fractures, tumors and cysts. With the i-Cat surgery is

more accurate and I am able to guide implant placement.”

His patients couldn’t be happier. “Dr. Pasqual is the best. His

staff and follow-up was impeccable. He called to check on us

at the end of the day to make sure everything was OK. I highly

recommend Dr. Pasqual.”

They also rave about Dr. Pasqual’s ability to calm them

down and make a difficult experience something not to be

feared. “I had two appointments with Dr. Pasqual and had two

wisdom teeth removed. The staff was very professional and

friendly. Dr. Pasqual is a real gentleman and makes you feel at

ease while performing extractions.”

The goal of this surgical team is to provide the very best

care to their patients. Each person – regardless of where they

live or who they are – is treated with the utmost respect and

professionalism by the staff and the doctor. “Our patients are

considered family and are treated as such. We understand

undergoing surgery can be a stressful event in life. My team

and I are committed to minimizing stress.”

Those who see Dr. Pasqual couldn’t agree more.

Lanzetta’s BarberShop

By Lisa Marie | Photos by melissa korman

Five Years Strong!

Five years on and Lanzetta’s Barbershop is still growing! What

is their secret? It’s simple: An honest, friendly, genuine and

buzzing place to be! (No pun intended…) This is a one stop

shop for any man who wants some seriously great grooming!

Antonio Lanzetta, owner and operator of Lanzetta’s Barber

Shop has to pinch himself sometimes at the way his classic

and retro-style ‘barbershop dream’ has flourished.

Now into their fifth year they boast 7(YES 7) full-time and 2 new,

part-time members of staff, with a stream of clients waiting to be

prepped, primed and refreshed. That steady flow of eager patrons

is mostly as a result of the online appointment system. It really is

quick and easy. Go to and on the right hand side

of any page you will see the ‘Book Now Realtime’ icon. One click

and you are on your way to an appointment with Antonio, Danny,

Stephen, Esais, Mark, Elvin, Avery or the two new and part-time

additions Shannon and Billie-Jean. Choose which service you require,

what day and what time suits you and you’re laughing all the

way through the doors of this quintessential barbershop! With the

guys (and now gals) chairs often filled it saves you any waiting time

for walk-ins. Reiterated by Antonio “We encourage people to book

their appointments online. During the season it gets harder to just

walk in and get a haircut, we’re pretty busy. It’s easy to book online

and we appreciate it when people do that,”

So, the staff has increased and the on-line booking system is

keeping them all on their toes but some things have remained the

same. Thankfully it’s the vibe and atmosphere, created by a bunch

of people working alongside one another who are genuine and

without pretense. They incite friendships with their loyal customers

and this ambience is what all the clientele rave about. One such

man, Posocco pretty much sums up their popularity and customer

loyalty. “I get my hair cut here every three weeks. I don’t even

specify which barber I want when I book an appointment online,

it doesn’t matter who cuts my hair because everyone here does

a great job. What also makes it so special is the camaraderie and

conversation,” said the marketing maven. The accolades keeping

on flowing; “Everyone here is like family and Danny (who cuts my

hair) is like a brother. I have been coming here since they opened

(five years ago) and the service is wonderful – far and above the

norm. It’s really comfortable too. They know more about me than

my family!!”…“Great haircuts, great group of employees and my

only place to get a real haircut. Also the beard details are the best”…

”Lanzetta’s is the best barber shop I’ve ever been to. They are so

professional. They are all friendly, and give a great haircut. You can

always chat about sports, and other things while you get a haircut.

It’s just a great environment there.”

With classic tunes from Sinatra filling the air, or watching your favorite

sporting event on the flat screen TV’s, the atmosphere of Lan-

zetta’s is also enhanced by its décor. Photos of past icons adorn

the clean cut walls including; Albert Einstein, James Dean, Jimmy

Hendrix, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and more. The rustic wood

beam ceiling, the large wood plank American flag on the wall,

the comfortable leather barber chairs and a refrigerator up front

with complimentary water, soda and beer for that thirsty client.

Antonio or any one of the other 8 barbers are happy to provide

you with a menu of services consisting of haircuts (with

straight razor shave on sideburns and neck), a classic haircut

with shampoo, blow-dry and style, old-fashioned scissor over

comb and clipper haircuts. They also offer straight edge hot

lather shaves, mustache, goatee and beard detailing and complimentary

ear, nose and eyebrow trims with every service.

Lanzetta’s also stocks Johnny B products which are available

for purchase. A molding paste or medium hold styling

gel, Johnny B is a professional haircare product line made specifically

for those gents that love the ‘classic’ look. Does your

man have a birthday soon? Think Gift Certificate. Or with the

holidays fast approaching why not indulge the man in your life

with a male grooming experience at its finest.

Lanzetta’s is nestled in Pineapple Grove District, Delray

Beach, so when you have been groomed to perfection you can

take your ‘new-self’ outside into the sunshine and check out

some seriously cool and trendy boutique shopping, coffee

shops and fine dining.

Lanzetta’s are always trying to accommodate their customers

which is why the offer the following opening hours: Mon

– Fri 9am – 7pm & Sat 9am – 6pm

The vibes at Lanzetta’s (and the great haircuts) are what attracts

loyal clients. But the energy is not happenstance; it was

planned from the start. “A good haircut or shave is as much

about the experience as the end result. My dream was to create

a retro-style barbershop (and haven for men) that pays

homage to the classic barbershops of the past.”

Sometimes dreams come true – and for Lanzetta that’s definitely

the case!

store, Dizzy Rock not only specializes in retail but also in custom

piece! They have expanded their custom upholstery side of the business.

You won’t have to get rid of your grandmother’s antique chair

or that old couch or pillow, Dizzy Rock can bring any furniture piece

back to life! From customizing a pillow or chair with a photograph

of your beloved pet to adding your favorite celebrity’s picture on a

chair, the options are endless. The store can even print their own fabrics

and canvas pieces of local artists in small or large scale.

The owner Steven Andrew Wellington hopes upholstery will

catch on among the younger generation.

“Dizzy Rock is expanding their upholstery, and it’s catching on.

People are spending more time in their homes and doing a lot more

entertaining. We have unique furniture or can upholster an old

piece of furniture to make a statement or liven up a room in your

imagine something, we will make it for them. I can take someone’s

old couch and turn it into something cool and modern. We are

capable of doing anything to a piece of furniture,” said the owner,

adding, “People are furnishing their entire homes from the store.

They walk in and are surprised that I can make their old furniture

look new. My goal is to inspire people to do something more creative

with furniture and their homes. It should reflect your personality

and something you like.”

Many of his customers become regulars and become “addicted”

to the artwork and statement furniture pieces.

“People come into the store and can’t believe what they are seeing.

They buy one item but keep coming back for more. I have some

customers that I have furnished their entire home. It’s almost like

they are addicted to the artwork and the uniqueness of the upholstery

furniture,” said Steven, adding, “People are loving what they

are seeing and it means more than anything to me. My customers

get addicted to Dizzy Rock Furniture and keep coming back!”

The owner is excited to announce that Dizzy Rock Furniture

will be expanding their store!

“We’re growing; we will be twice the size! We are adding more

merchandise and furniture. The upholstery section will also be

increasing in size. It’s just about putting your own stamp on your

own stuff! Even just one unique armchair next to a couch changes

the room entirely! Dizzy Rock Furniture offers something for everyone’s

personality and individuality,” said Steven.

Stop by Dizzy Rock Furniture and get a new piece of furniture

or art, bring in an antique piece and they will give it a new look

for your home!

Indulge In The mAe –

Meridian Art Experience

Art can be both liberating

and inspiring. It can also

be intimidating.

That’s why Jim Blumenfeld and Susan Romaine opened the

mAe Art Gallery in Pineapple Grove. Though they come from

the world of business both see art as a fortuitous journey

toward physical and spirutual enlightenment (both literallly and


The gallery – that boasts natural light and eclectic artwork –

brings art to its finest essence wtihout pretense or uber attitude.

“There are not a lot of galleries that showcase emerging and midcareer

artists. In the mAe we make the art accessible and the concept

approachable,” said Bluemfeld, who collects art of all mediums

and has a passion for its aestetic ability to blend harmonoiously

into ones envioronment.

Romaine is an artist and former business executive who reached

the height of her career while harboring a Hopper-esque talent for

oil paintings that reveal the humanity in the urbane. Both Blumenfeld

and Romaine succeeded in the business world, yet have come to roost

where their hearts are in harmony with their surroundings – The mAe.

Others feel the same way. That is why this intimate cozy space

is always awash in new artwork and clients who come to buy (or

admire) art that is approachable and impactful.

Take the photographs of George Dern for example. This incredibly

talented photographer captures the essence of the outdoors

Inside The mAe with Art you can Hang, Place and Use

76 | NOVEMbER 2017 |

Owners Blumenfeld and Romaine among The mAe’s collection

in all its inherent mysticism by way of uisng infrared sensors that

carry ordinary landscapes to exulted heights. His black and white

photo of a bridge over tranquil water reflects the pure essence of

trees that drape the photo in a womblike existence.

Dern also created a large color photo of Bourbon Street (in New

Orleans) just after dawn that is immortalized under plexiglass. The

photo – taken on an early Sunday morning - glistens with the signs

of renewal from the prior days pandemonium.

The art at The mAe is a celebration of diversity with different mediums

that range from sculptures in all sizes (a 7-foot wood rocket

ship clock) glass, sculptures, mix-media, ceramic, oil and acrylic

paintings in all sizes and shapes.

There is only one ingredient that must be adhered to. “We want

people to engage with art whether they buy a piece or not. Ours is

an educational process that minimizes a sense of exclusivity and

makes it approachable. We want our gallery to be welcoming and

engaging with a breadth of artwork and artists,” said Blumenfeld.

Mission accomplished. On a recent First Friday Art Walk guests

were serenaded by live music and entranced by tales of photography

by landscape photographer George Dern. Artist (and co-owner)

Romaine was also nearby chatting about art and life as they coexist.

Art lovers and mAe fans were looking at art while nibbling on

light bites and sipping wine.

While owning a gallery is a static endeavor, The mAe is constantly

in motion. From November 3rd until November 26th famous

Irish artists will showcase their work there. Dorothy Cross, an internationally

renowned artist, will show her luminescent artwork

and Donald Teskey’s rugged landscapes will cross the ocean to our

shore via the mAe experience.

Examples of The mAe’s diverse offerings

It is the diversity of artwork, and its various mediums, that have

clients happy that The mAe has embraced (and showcased) this

new and emerging art genre.

“We purchased several pieces from The mAe. We love the diversity

of their collection and share their value of supporting emerging

and mid-career artists. As collectors it is clear their diverse

offerings are well thought through and represent a very high quality

of work,” said George and Joyce.

They’re right. Blumenfeld and Romaine have an eye for art that

Picasso would bask in and a passion for décor that marries art in

its most serene context. All that is clear.

The encaustic oil paintings of Janet Siegel Rogers take the viewer

on a blissful journey while Steve Blackwood takes salvaged equipment

parts to create sculptures that make the mundane marvelous.

While the art at The mAe is impressive and approachable, they offer

a lot more on their website -

“The website is an evolution of our business. It helps the user

see how art fits into their home and where it will be best suited.

Soon you will be able to take a picture of your room and see where

the art will best belong.”

Their website is where you can view (and purchase) a full selection

of artwork in all mediums, sizes and concepts. And if anyone

knows a lot about embracing art with reverie and good taste it’s

Blumenfeld, Romaine and their team.

The mAe offers Professional Custom framing and Hanging and

is the perfect place for parties and fund-raisers. They also work

with Designers (and their clients) to guarantee that art is an integral

part of the overall harmony of their home.

Come to The mAe Gallery and experience “The Fine Art of Living

with Art.”

You can indulge in a wonderful tour of well curated art or just

chat with their knowledgeable staff.

Either way you’ll enjoy yourself.

waiting to help you make the leap.

their field. This new client-centric surgical center and Med Spa

And they mean it. Their treatment

rooms, operating rooms and staff are

geared toward making sure you get

what you want with safety and competence

as their priority.

There are surgical options that

Brazilian Butt Lift, Eyelid

Surgery, Brow Lift, Facelift, Liposuction,

Mommy Makeover,

Rhinoplasty, Tummy Tuck, and

a variety of other surgical procedures

that uplift your body

and spirit.

These physical improvements

(and enhancements) are taken

seriously with compassion and

the ultimate in care. This starts

with their medical staff.

Dr. Megan Jack, Dr. Drew Schnitt, Dr. Jacqueline Tutiven, Dr. Matthew Goodwin

They have a full-time double Board-Certified Chief of Anesthesiology

& Perioperative Medicine, Dr. Jacqueline Tutiven. She makes sure

her patients understand the options in anesthesia regarding their

treatment or surgery, oversees patient safety and optimizes the anesthesia

experience. Dr. Tutiven held a position as Assistant Professor of

clinical anesthesia at U of M/ JMH for more than 18 years. She is also a

committee member at the American Board of Anesthesia.

This is only one part of the critical importance of their creed to

serve all who enter with grace and expertise. This beautiful center

adheres to the highest level of safety and care for surgical and nonsurgical

procedures (including wrinkle reducing injectables and laser

and skin treatments) to rejuvenate damaged skin.

Their operating rooms are flawless when it comes to cleanliness

and state-of-the-art equipment. But, it is the safety component that

they do not compromise on one bit. “All our surgeons share a core

belief that focuses on safety. The Inspire Team is proud to have

achieved a perfect score (which is rare) on our operating rooms’ certification

inspection from the Board of Medicine,” said Rick Mojica,

CEO of Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa.

They are also insistent that all guests are treated with the ultimate

respect and the highest level of care. Their doctors, coordinators and

staff guide you through each step of your journey from the minute you

call the office to after surgery post-op care, said Mojica. “We strive to

ensure our clients and team have everything they need for successful

outcomes to attain desired results.”

Part of this equation begins with the best equipment and medical

supplies that are available on the market.

cosmetic surgery & med spa

They do not skimp on anything – whether it be surgical instruments,

supplies or digital imaging.

But the most critical component in this highly sensitive (yet successful)

form of self-improvement are the doctors who represent Inspire Cosmetic

Surgery & Med Spa. All are Board Certified Plastic Surgeons who

have been recognized for outstanding accomplishments in their field.

Dr. Drew E. Schnitt is one of these individuals. The Board-Certified

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon is skilled in complex cosmetic and

reconstructive plastic surgeries of the face, breast and body.

Internationally recognized for his humanitarian work, Dr. Schnitt has

provided his services voluntarily to patients in need of craniofacial and

burn reconstructive surgery around the world with Operation Smile.

In 2017, he was awarded both The Humanitarian Award by LifeNet

Health and The Stephen Pratt Award for Excellence in Plastic Surgery

by Operation Smile.

Dr. Schnitt is a perfectionist who pays attention to every detail. He

has extensive experience with implant tissue-based cosmetic and revision

breast surgery. He is also a craniofacial expert and world renown

facial enhancement specialist. Dr. Schnitt is frequently invited to lecture

at premier plastic surgery symposiums.

Dr. Megan Jack is another member of the surgical team at Inspire.

The Double Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon is extremely detail oriented

and demands nothing less than perfection. “My philosophy is that

surgery starts with careful planning. Every aspect of the procedure is

important—from incision to closure.” Her specialization is primary

and revision breast surgery, tummy tucks, mommy makeovers, laser

procedures, liposuction, body contouring and scar revision.

Dr. Jack also works with patients going through reconstructive surgery

after skin cancer and abdominal wall reconstruction for hernias.

“My goal is to help my patients age successfully with preventative

measures. Turning to cosmetic enhancements when the time comes in

the most natural way possible.”

Dr. Matthew Goodwin is another highly skilled Board-Certified Plastic

Surgeon at Inspire. He not only has an artist’s eye but a surgeon’s

precise handiwork. His education is also more than impressive.

He got his undergraduate degree at Princeton University and received

his Medical Degree from Yale University School of Medicine.

He completed his general surgery residency at Washington University,

Barnes-Jewish Hospital, the St. Louis Children’s Hospital and the University

of Minnesota.

Dr. Goodwin specializes in cosmetic surgery of the breast and body

as well as facial and eyelid rejuvenation, both surgical and minimally

invasive. He also specializes in skin cancer, MOHS reconstruction and

reconstruction of the face and body.

He received the Patient’s Choice Award from MDx Medical Inc./ and Most Compassionate Doctor – Certificate of Appreciation

as well.

With a team like Inspire – beauty enhancements are a phone call

away. The doctors and staff at Inspire are highly qualitied and take pride

in achieving excellent results with their clients. The patient testimonials

are overwhelmingly positive and they pride themselves on providing

Unparalleled Safety, Remarkable Results and Exceptional Care.

Oxygen Rescue Care Centers of America

Ray Crallé Gives Near Drowning

Victims A Second Chance At Life

For parents of near drowning children,

Mr. Raymond Crallé has been the light

at the end of a very dark tunnel.

Mr. Raymond Crallé

Known as a miracle worker, Mr. Raymond Cralle, owner of

ORCCA, Oxygen Rescue Care Centers of America in Delray

Beach, has given many a second chance at life. From children

who nearly drowned and veterans suffering concussive blast injuries

to well known athletes with major sports injuries and patients

with life threatening illnesses, Mr. Cralle has combined hyperbaric

oxygen and physical therapy treatments to save lives. Along with

former colleague Dr. Richard A. Neubauer, Ray Crallé was one of the

first to treat patients with hyperbaric oxygen therapy for injuries to

the brain and to see the amazing results.

Ray Crallé has helped many near drowning victims who were

told there was no hope. In the warm waters of Florida, a near

drowning can cause irreversible brain damage for a child unless

they receive this treatment. In his near drowning cases, Mr. Crallé

has utilized hyperbaric oxygen therapy- which involves breathing

pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber- combined with neurological

rehabilitation to work miracles. Through hyperbaric oxygen

treatment, the injured or damaged cells replicate themselves to

create new non-injured cells. One hundred percent oxygen under

pressure is pushed into the blood plasma and can increase oxygen

at a wound site 2000%.

“In a near drowning, oxygen to the brain is lost. The brain

shrinks and there is not a lot of hope that the child will come

back from it. Over the years I have had the opportunity to treat

many children who have survived drowning events. Some children

I have seen 9 years after their incident and some as early as

60 days following the drowning incident. Not one child presented

the same degree of symptoms, and after hyperbaric oxygen treatments

some come back to near complete recovery. I have seen the

scans showing the brain before and after the treatment in an exciting

recently published study, a child has completely regrown

tissue in the brain,” said Mr. Crallé.

ORCCA has been hailed as the only free standing hyperbaric

oxygen facility in the United States that offers physical therapy on

site. The importance of combining these treatments is because hyperbaric

oxygen therapy increases your body’s own stem cells and

combined with physical therapy the healing effects are multiplied.

There are many research studies that have shown the positive

improvements from hyperbaric oxygen. Mr. Crallé has seen these

improvements among his own patients.

Not only has Mr. Crallé helped near drowning victims but also aided

veterans in getting their cognitive functions back from the silent

wounds of war, concussion and traumatic brain injury. He has also

helped high net worth athletes after experiencing concussion. He

Ludmila and Charles

treats a wide range of illnesses including: PTSD, Alzheimer’s, Cancer,

Autism, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, Cerebral Palsy, and more.

With over 40 years of physical therapy experience, Ray Crallé

has many success stories. Many patients are forever grateful to him

for improving their health and wellbeing; injured athletes are now

able to play and succeed at their sport again; veterans are regaining

their memory, and near drowning victims are receiving miracles.

Mr. Crallé has a non-profit organization, Hope Springs, which assists

veterans and near drowning children with hyperbaric oxygen

therapy from donations for those who cannot afford treatment.

His patients praise Mr. Crallé and his staff at ORCCA for saving

their families and their lives. The office is filled with photographs

of Mr. Crallé smiling with his patients and with Thank you letters. A

flag was even flown over a United States Special Operations Command

in Mr. Crallé’s honor for his pro bono work with vets.

Nannette Cruz, a mother whose son, Rafael, nearly drowned,

called Mr. Crallé “an angel.” “Our son, Rafael, was a healthy 22

months old boy till an accident happened. Rafael fell in a swimming

pool and nearly drowned. As a result of this accident, Rafael was

diagnosed with severe brain damage due to lack of oxygen and the

doctors said he will stay in a persistent vegetative state. We never

accepted this diagnosis and tried to find alternatives. Rafael never

had so many improvements until he started physical therapy with

Mr. Crallé. By the time Rafael started Mr. Crallé’s therapy, Rafy had

a dislocated hip, severe scoliosis and was severely spastic. After the

first therapy we noticed the changes in his tone, he wasn’t that stiff

anymore, and during the months that followed he kept getting better

and better. Rafael, now 9, is able to control switch activated communication

devices; he is aware, his back is straight, he is not stiff

anymore, he bends his knees, and is not fighting his own body. God

bless Mr. Crallé for contributing to Rafael’s miracle in progress.”

Ray Crallé and his hyperbaric oxygen therapies have truly been

a blessing to many parents of near drowning children and to all

of his patients.

Jose Herrera

86 | November 2017 |

egulars | city people

by diane feen | photo by melissa korman

A Man On The Move

Jose Herrera is a get it done

kind of guy. He learned that

from his mother Vilma and

his stepfather Leonardo. The

Venezuelan-born entrepreneur

took a lot of twists and turns

on his fortuitous journey from

adolescence to adulthood.

And each new path led him on an even greater adventure.

Luckily Herrera knew his path was strewn with opportunity – he

also knew that knowledge is both powerful and empowering. Much

of that knowledge was on-the-job training when he was a 19-year-old

intern for Delray attorney Michael Weiner.

It was Weiner who introduced Herrera to different boards and city

agencies, and it was Weiner who taught him that to serve one’s community

was a Godly act.

“Michael got me involved in the city and I learned a lot about city

politics through him. He also taught me about the importance of civic

responsibility. When I went to Chamber meetings (and other city

meetings) I was the youngest person in the room.”

That introduction to city politics paved the way for young Herrera

to take an active role in Delray Beach’s political infrastructure. He sat

on the Policy Advisory Board and the Code Enforcement Board. Herrera

was also Chair and Vice Chair of the Board of Education, assisting

in numerous campaigns such as “Delray Reads Day” and “Be on Time.”

Herrera attributes much of his voracious appetite for adventure

and accomplishment to his mother Vilma who told him never to

let anyone bring you down and to overcome obstacles. “My mother

was the best, she always demanded perfection. My other role model

(Michael Weiner) demanded perfection and told me to ‘make it

happen’ without excuses,” said the marketing director for Islamorada

Beer Company.

You could say that Herrera is a quick study. He has continued to lead

his life with purpose and poise and is always there for those in need.

He assisted in getting street lamps for dark roads in Delray and participated

in the first Hispanic Police Academy for Delray Beach citizens.

Though he wanted to be a lawyer (or police officer) after graduating

from FAU, it was not to be. “I was waiting in line for my transcripts

when I saw my friend Monica Jara. She told me about a position that

was open and suggested I get a master’s degree as well.”

That chance meeting with Jara led Herrera to a position as Program

Assistant for the Weppner Center for Civic Engagement and Service.

While there he increased student participation, provided academic

leadership and introduced students to civic engagement.

He also provided volunteer management of students, faculty and

staff for the 2008 Republican Presidential Debates, and attempted to

break a Guinness World Record for largest Human Support Ribbon.

While at FAU Herrera also served as Event Coordinator for University

Advancement and Alumni Affairs. In that position he maintained

relationships with Alumni and Donors, created fundraising events

and assisted in managing internal and external events at the Marleen

& Harold Forkas Alumni Center.

He was also a Mentor for the FAU Athletic Department.

At Pope John Paul II High School Herrera was Director of Development

and Alumni Relations. In this position he raised funds and

spread his glorious understanding of social media, civic engagement,

mentoring, sports, and alumni inclusiveness.

When it comes to being in the epicenter of good deeds Herrera is

front center. He was one of the original board members of the Delray

Beach Miracle League, and assisted in obtaining funds to build

the Miracle League field for special needs children. “When Jose feels

passion about something he jumps in feet first. He has a huge heart

and when he says he is going to do something you can always rely on

him. I adore him,” said Miracle League founder Julia Kadel.

Herrera was also on the Alumni board of the George Snow Scholarship

Foundation. He created networking nights, golf tournaments

and social media venues. He also volunteered as a Delray Beach Santa

and called children before Christmas to check in on them.

Though his accomplishments are enormous Herrera is a mere

34-years-old. But his wisdom and sense of civic duty is so far beyond

his chronological age that it has those around him in awe of his passion

for people and projects. “I never met a young man so dedicated

to public service. He got that right away and wanted to be involved in

the community. He has found his calling,” said attorney (and Herrera

mentor) Michael Weiner.

Herrera is known as someone who takes chances and breaks

the barrier of the status quo. His latest attempt led to his current

position as Director of Business Development for Islamorada Beer

Company. The company, started by Herrera and four of his friends

from FAU, was founded on the principles of passion and inventiveness.

They made craft beer and called it Sandbar Sunday. Though

this approach was unorthodox in the industry it wasn’t long before

distributors came knocking on their door. “We had no idea what we

were doing but decided to just ‘got for it.’ We made 90 barrels of

beer and were told by a consultant that it would last six months. But

within six weeks we were sold out.”

The Beer is now distributed from Daytona to Key West and is sold

in over 800 locations. Their sales have grown to almost $1 million, but

that hasn’t stopped Herrera from doing good deeds.

He co-founded “Gotta Luv Them Fund,” a non-profit organization

that raises money for college scholarships. And he took a pivotal role

in helping those in need from the ravages of Hurricane Irma.

Though his resume is peppered with words like accomplish, training,

coaching, strategic planning and trend identifier, this young man

is one bundle of sheer determination and passion. He looks out for

others and is aware that his goals and dreams are just another step

toward spreading goodness in the world. | November 2017 | 87

Pizza Valentina

Scuola Vecchia

Scuola Vecchia

The True Essence Of

Eating Italian Pizza

When Scuola Vecchia opened it

was a sensational new experience

that only those who lived in

Naples, Italy would understand.

Owner Sharon Aloisio bought (and shipped to Delray) the

wood burning oven made of volcanic stone that heats to

1000 degrees. She was one of the first restauranteurs to

make Caputo flour pizza dough taste light as a feather and imported

Italian San Marzano tomato sauce melt in your mouth.

She also imported the wisdom, culinary excellence and 200-year-old

Neapolitan pizza-making skills from the master, Roberto Caporuscio.

And she did it with precision and dedication.

The results were stunning. People came from all over to savor the

flavors and texture of real Neapolitan pizza and homemade pasta

that Sharon cooked up.

It was a unique dining experience, and one that Aloisio adhered

to strictly. She followed the tradition of the masters in Italy and so

did her fans – that included locals, out of towners and the media.

The menu grew and so did their expertise. Everyone seemed to

notice. “This is the best pizza anywhere. There is true integrity in

what they’re doing here. I eat here once a week,” said Reny Hodan,

owner of a popular Delray restaurant nearby.

Hodan isn’t the only one drawn to Scuola Vecchia. Debbie Gansler

and her husband Howard come once a week as well. “We love it

here and have been coming since they opened. We order the Pizza

Margherita and the specials of the day. The white pizza with figs

and gorgonzola cheese is outstanding. I’m Italian and I love the thin

crust, the ingredients and the excellent service.”

Gansler is correct on all counts. The food at Scuola Vecchia is superb

and its authenticity is overwhelmingly delicate and delicious.

We’ve been here before but it seems with age comes perfection

(like wine and wisdom).

Part of the delicate balance of flavors and textures that seduce

the senses are pizzas named after Aloisio’s grandchildren. Luckily

her son – and business partner Shaun – recently had a baby girl. To

honor her birth a pizza was created in her name. Called the Valen-

Pizza Romeo



NEAPolitAN PizzA

Fettuccine Mediterraneo

tina, this pizza is out of this world. Made with Prosciutto di Parma,

gorgonzola cheese, cherry pesto and mint, it fills your mouth with

flavors and your spirit with delight.

We also adored the Pizza Romeo, named after Shaun’s five-yearold

son (who enjoys making pizza with his dad). This pizza is divinely

made with homemade mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced potatoes,

crispy pancetta and fresh rosemary. The unusual combination

of flavors and ingredients in this pizza make it decadently delicious.

We weren’t the only ones oohing and aahing over this homemade

Italian fare. Local Delray resident (and finance guy) Dave comes to

Scuola Vecchia quite often and was relishing the food as well. “This

is the best pizza. I’ve been coming here since it opened so I don’t

have to go to New York for pizza. I love Sharon and Shaun – they

care about what goes on your plate and it shows.”

You don’t have to be from New York to appreciate the TLC that

goes into the food at Scuola Vecchia. Take the Girella Salad for instance.

It goes like this – Homemade Mozzarella Cheese Rolls are

stuffed with eggplant, zucchini and Prosciutto di Parma and served

with a house salad with balsamic dressing. It is a celebration of texture

and taste that we found intoxicating. It’s so far out of the traditional

salad comfort zone that the flavors and texture just jump

out at you gleefully.

Speaking of glee – you must try their new homemade Italian

Rice Balls. Called Sicilian Arancini they are lightly breaded and

come three to an order - spinach and béchamel, homemade Bolognese

and Prosciutto Cotto (Italian ham) with mozzarella. They are

simply divine with varying flavors that dance with delight in your

mouth. They’re so good it feels illegal. But, of course it’s as legal as

writing your name on a post-it – but much more fun.

The genius behind much of this excellence and expertise is Sharon.

She learned to cook from her grandmother and has carried

this tradition to fruition in her little corner of the world on Atlantic

Avenue. She tries new dishes and is constantly whipping up specials

that makes everyone ecstatically happy. Just look around – it

feels like Neapolitan Nirvana. And it is!

We aren’t the only ones impressed with Scuola Vecchia. The Daily

Meal rated their pizza one of the best in South Florida and Trip Advisor

deemed their Neapolitan tradition the best pizza on the planet.

So does Donna from Delray. “My husband and I have excellent

experiences at Scuola Vecchia. It’s the best pizza in the WORLD! We

always feel like family when we dine there. Anthony, Rita, Sharon

and Sean - what wonderful kind people. The Caprese salad with

their homemade Mozzarella is to die for!”

You bet it is. So is their Fettuccini Bolognese with homemade

meat sauce cooked for three hours to infuse flavor into tomato

sauce cooked in their wood oven. We also recommend the Salad

Mare with fresh baby arugula, jumbo shrimp, grape tomatoes, lemon

and extra virgin olive oil.

Because Scuola Vecchia is a family business they welcome everyone

with the same fanfare. That is why they offer Gluten Free

Pizza made with fresh homemade gluten-free flour (not frozen like


Before you say goodbye to Sharon, Shaun and the devoted staff,

check out their desserts. The Flourless Chocolate Cake would make

a horse whisper and a human covet it like a priceless pearl. We also

suggest the homemade Tiramisu.

Scuola Vecchia has hit its stride. The food is superb, inventive

and homemade with love. Sharon and Shaun are at the epicenter

of all this Italian Culinary Greatness, and they welcome you into

their domain.

We suggest you join them!

dining | thanksgiving

By Yvette Roulette


A Simple



Thanksgiving is one of my

favorite holidays of the year.

It encompasses for most,

three All American “Fs”: Food,

Football, and Family. Some

Thanksgiving dinners are fancy

and elaborate, with recipes

straight out of Bon Appétit,

while others are more simple

and basic with family recipes

that have been passed down

through generations. This

Thanksgiving I will share some

of my favorite, crowd pleasing,

fool proof, traditional recipes.

106 | November 2017 |

Tender Juicy Turkey

1 15 lb turkey - giblets and neck removed

2 Tbsp each of dried parsley, ground

dried rosemary, rubbed dried sage,

dried thyme leaves

1 Tbsp lemon pepper

1 Tbsp salt

2 Stalks of celery, chopped

1 Orange cut in wedges

1 Onion chopped

1 Carrot chopped

1 14.5 oz Can of chicken broth

1 Bottle of champagne

(or ginger ale, or coke)

*If prepared ahead, marinate the

turkey in the fridge the day before

for even more tender juiciness!

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Line a turkey roster with long sheets

of foil that will be long enough to

wrap the turkey loosely.

2. Stir together the parsley, rosemary,

sage, thyme, lemon pepper

and salt in a small bowl. Rub the

mixture in the cavity of the turkey

and over and under the skin

of the turkey. Stuff the turkey with

the celery, onion, orange, and carrot.

Truss, if desired and place the

turkey in the roasting pan. Pour

the broth and champagne over the

turkey and make sure to get some

champagne in the cavity. Bring the

foil over the top of the turkey and

seal. Keep the foil from touching the

skin of the breast or legs.

3. Bake the turkey for 2 1/2 - 3

hours until juices run clear. Uncover

and continue to bake until skin turns

golden brown (about 30 minutes to

1 hour more). When done, remove

turkey from oven and cover with

aluminum foil - let the turkey rest at

least 15 minutes before carving.

and cook until potatoes are tender. Drain,

reserving broth.

*Mash potatoes with 1/4 cup of broth,

butter, sour cream, salt and pepper. Add

additional broth slowly until desired consistency.

*I whip my potatoes with a mixer. It

makes for fluffier potatoes and no lumps!

chicken broth well. Stir in chicken

broth slowly until desired consistency.

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes until surface

is lightly brown and crispy.

2 29oz Cans of yams

1/2 Cup butter cut into pieces

1 Cup brown sugar

3 Cups of mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mushroom Soup

misc | ask the petxpert

BY Bill Piechocki and Dr. Diane Sudduth, DVM

Is It A Supplement

Or A Food?

In putting together nutritional plans for people and pets, we begin by

looking at the major components of their current diet. These macro

components are often broken down into groups such as protein,

carbohydrates, fats, starches, and fiber. We view meat as a source of

protein which many believe is the only nutritional benefit of that food.

As such, we are taught that we must incorporate other food groups to

balance the body’s nutrition. We also see words like “fortified,” “source

of,” “balanced” and “complete” on the labels of many foods.

This brings us to the topic of supplements. What are they and how

should we use them? According to the FDA, “A dietary supplement is

a product intended for ingestion that contains a dietary ingredient intended

to add further nutritional value (supplement) to the diet.” In other

words, they are other foods that are bringing additional nutritive

benefits to the body. These supplements can include herbs, botanicals,

vitamins and minerals among other resources. It may sound easy but

it can rapidly cause confusion.

For example, if I have mashed potatoes and I add an herb or botanical

to it, are we adding a supplement to those potatoes? Is gravy

then a supplement as well? You may ask why this is important. If you

are evaluating your health or that of your pets, you may be advised to

eliminate “supplements” when being prescribed various medications

or treatments. If they are foods, how can they compromise the effects

of a medication?

The best way to provide your pets and your body with all the nutrients

needed, is by consuming a biologically species appropriate diet,

comprised of the highest quality natural raw or minimally processed

organic foods. These foods will contain the most bioavailable nutrients,

along with the proper enzymes for digestion and utilization. By

adding micro nutrients such as herbs, botanicals and spices, the body

has the raw materials for increased immune support and detoxification.

Good examples are turmeric and ginger. These foods are used

extensively as “supplements” for detoxification and as aids for other

conditions. However, we also use these foods for flavor and color in

addition to their nutritive values. So, are they a food or a supplement?

We know that all foods bring a plethora of nutrients to the body

as well as aiding in the detoxification process which make all foods

supplements. The issue becomes cloudy when we look at the supplement

industry. We are confronted with claims and labels that are often

misleading as most are comprised of chemical sources, not living bioavailable

whole food sources. These synthetic supplemental ingredients

can and do interact with the synthetic, chemical based medicines.

Most are not used properly by the living body as they are not recognized

by the body.

The use of whole natural living herbs, minerals and botanicals as

foods, in addition to our macro whole foods will supply the body with

all the nutrients we need. By rotating our foods, eating local and seasonal

wherever possible, avoiding toxic drugs, chemicals and additives,

the body will balance itself naturally, creating a healthy, efficient

natural immune system. All real foods are supplements but all supplements

are not foods. Food is the only true source of optimal nutrition.
