Here at Stonewear Designs, the ladies have finally finished our boot camp challenge, Sexy in Six Weeks led by Sabrina Domenosky. Six weeks of daily work outs, no sugar, no starches and mostly no carbohydrates… but we all feel great! The first few weeks were such a challenge, a deprivation of our comfort food really. After that, we started getting used to our new routines and it was no longer a struggle to get through the day. Now after six weeks, we no longer are forced to complete a boot camp challenge but have found a new way of living our lives. We have become more fit with a consistent daily workout routine and we now know what foods to eat and what foods to avoid.  Plus we’ve put the Stonewear Designs clothes to good use and discovered new product ideas. We also have decided not to stop until we have reached our goals. The challenge hasn’t been just about the weight loss but a new healthy way to live. Even though the six weeks are over we have a new way of living a healthy lifestyle that will always stick with us.

During the last weeks of our challenge Sabrina came to our office to give us a personal workout. Brad Clement of Spindrift Films and coincidentally the husband of our personal Drill Sergeant Tonya filmed it. Above is the video and you can see us put our Stonewear Designs to good use while we get our butt’s kicked by Sabrina!

Curry Craving

Posted in Food, Uncategorized tagged , , , , , , at 10:06 am by Stonewear Designs

Are you overwhelmed by the exotic list of ingredients when looking at a recipe? Sometimes it’s not even the type of ingredient but how many you need for just one recipe. Currently I am in a point in my life where I am still moving apartments every year. With that, I have not put much effort into building up my pantry. However, that does not take away from my passion for cooking. Lately I have been in a curry kick, I have attained some great recipes that allow me to satisfy my craving and that only involve a few ingredients. This past Chanukah my roommate got me spices from the Savory Spice Shop in Boulder, CO. I went on their website for recipes which is where I found these:

Cambodian Lemongrass Chicken Curry

I added cubed potatoes to this recipe and put them in with the chicken. It was delicious! This dish had a great little spice to it as well as a hint of citrus flavor. I made this dish for a few friends who liked it so much that they thought I was a chef in a Cambodian restaurant earlier in my life.

Thai Green Chicken Curry

Warning! This spice is hot so use it wisely. I found this spice level very enjoyable since I like my food with some attitude.

Even with a full-time job and a young adult social life, I am still able to make curry chicken with what I have in the house and with little to no effort. I think you will enjoy these recipes just as much as I do.

What do you enjoy cooking?
