Breakfast in Bed, Whole Trade Style

In our search to find a unique experience to gift mom this Mother’s Day, our good friend Elaine D’Farley reminded us about the gesture of breakfast in bed.


It was genius! What mom wouldn’t want to wake up to a delicious omelet, fruit salad, tea, coffee and of course  flowers on the side. But the best part about this breakfast is that the ingredients are all Whole Trade from Whole Foods Market. So we feel good about taking care of mom on her special day and at the same time also taking care of farm workers and their families in other countries too.

It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

The Gift of Youth

The LifeMinute team took a trip to Miami…but instead of soaking up rays, we stopped by the office of mother/daughter derm duo Dr. Mayoral and Dr. Vega to steal their tips for turning back the hands of time.


The docs tell us their number one tip for looking youthful is sun protection. It’s very important to wear sunscreen everyday, 365 days a year, SPF 30.

Other ways to look younger is with in-office procedures.  It’s best to start early so changes are gradual and not extreme. Dr. Mayoral and Vega are seeing this as a trend. The ones they recommend are Radiesse, Xeomin and Belotero.
