Mr. Curry at Achilles Heel (08/28)

© Adrain Gaut

From time to time, every couple of months, I get a severe craving for an outrageously good curry. Unfortunately I’m yet to find a really awesome local curry house but, this Thursday, for one night only, help is at hand! Or at Heel (schnarfle).

Achilles Heel will be welcoming Caroline Fidanza of Saltie to host a London-style curry night extraordinaire! The full, mouthwatering menu is below and the team at Achilles will be whipping up cocktails and a special punch to pair with all the dishes.

Curry in a hurry? Not on Thursday. This is one spicy feast you’ll most definitely want to linger over! Continue reading

Become Your BEST Self, from Anywhere!

Accepting responsibility is the first step to change. This is what Dishan Elise, owner of human@ease, teaches through her The BEST Plan program developed for individuals who want positive change in their health and well-being. However, they get more than they bargained for when they realize this change permeates throughout their families, communities, and even the planet.

“BEST” is an acronym for “Balance, Energy, Strength, and Tranquility”. It is a 12-week program that covers all aspects of health and well-being. This complete program provides the tools for radical transformation. You can see some real life examples here. The BEST Plan is designed to deal with past conditioning and emotional obstacles related to nutrition and to break the addiction to processed foods. Dishan says “Clients are educated on proper diet and exercise and we incorporate methods to strengthen and improve all systems of the body.”

Seeing how impactful the plan was for her members, whom she calls her “BESTies”, she decided the way to have the most positive impact on our planet was to bring The BEST Plan to everyone. She understood that she wasn’t the only fitness facility bringing positive change to people’s lives, but also knew that The BEST Plan was unique in that it covers everything a body needs. In reflecting on this, her idea for a comprehensive coaching platform was born which she calls BEST.everywhere. Continue reading
