This August, slip away into relaxation. Enjoy either a 60 or 90 minute massage at domani salon & spa!
ADVOCARE Spark has been reformulated & we have it at domani!!!!
- Why are there less calories and carbohydrates in Spark? Is it equally beneficial?
The reduction in calories and carbohydrates comes from a reduction in an inactive ingredient called
maltodextrin. This reduction allows for a smaller serving size, which means we can provide Spark in
more convenient packaging while still offering all of the same benefits.
- Are there still the same amounts of servings per canister?
Yes, you still receive approximately 42 servings of Spark per canister. As your canister is being
shipped, powder may settle and appear more compacted than when it was originally filled.
- Why is the scoop smaller?
By reducing the amount of an inactive ingredient (maltodextrin), we are able to fit all of the benefits of
Spark into a smaller scoop. Spark’s benefits have not changed. The only major differences are that
the product serving size has now gone from 15g to 7g of powder, 45 to 15 calories, and 11g to 4g of
carbohydrates. The directions remain, “Blend, shake or stir contents of one stick pack or one scoop
into 8 fluid ounces of water.”
- What is maltodextrin? Why does Spark have maltodextrin? Why did you reduce the
maltodextrin in Spark?
Maltodextrin is a polysaccharide, three or more carbohydrate molecules joined together, derived
from a starch (corn). Maltodextrin is used to help product flow through filling equipment during the
manufacturing process. Advances in powder fill technology have led to newer, faster equipment
capable of accurately delivering smaller amounts of powder into packaging. With this new technology
available to us, we are able to reduce the amount of maltodextrin in the product.
- Why does Spark cost the same amount as before?
The active ingredients, servings and all of the great benefits of Spark are all present in more
so often, our guests only visit us for manicures around special occasions. when we ask WHY, they simply state that they can’t budget a manicure that only lasts a few days. When we tell them about their possibilities and that a gel polish manicure can last 7-10+ days… their eyes light up like CHRISTMAS!
Why choose gel?
Nothing is worse than leaving the nail salon with tacky nails only to smudge it on the car door. Gel polish is a uv cured polish that goes on the natural nail and is completely dry right away. It is guaranteed to last from 7-10 days and it leaves the nail feeling stronger which promotes growth. The removal of gel is a little more involved starting with buffing off the topcoat and soaking in 100% pure acetone to ensure that the nail bed is not stripped. For a longer lasting manicure, gel is the way to go!
Why choose regular polish?
If you are a frequent color changer, regular nail polish makes that possible. With little effort it can be removed with nail polish remover. Though it isn’t guaranteed to not chip, regular polish allows you to be more versatile and creative in keeping up with the latest trends.
As gel polish is becoming more common, companies are coming out with more and more colors! with every nail collection OPI comes out with, they choose 6 of the most popular colors and turn it into gel polish!!! Our color possibilities are becoming more fun each season! Here at domani we carry two OPI brands of gel color: Axxium and Gel Color. so, next time you’re thinking about a manicure…. think about trying something a little different… something that might hang around for just a bit longer!

Hello, once again, to all dear friends and family of Domani Wellness,
Though it has been well over a week since the last installment, know that I have been thinking of you daily and hoping you are all coping as well as can be expected. As you can imagine, I myself have been stunned to speechlessness. In this week like no others this country has known since the destruction of World Trade Center towers, we must once again call up every last ounce of strength in our hearts and show the world, as well as one another, that the human spirit is far more difficult to crush. Though I doubt I’d be capable of such lofty words had any member of my own family been injured or worse in Boston or Waco. But on behalf of Domani, my family, and myself, our hearts go out to all those trying to regain peace in their lives after such a horrrible week of loss and destruction. Countless thanks go out to all the fire and rescue personnel, law enforcement, and service men and women who are giving all they can trying to restore “normal” in the face of chaos. Would that our prayers could only be enough. Well, let’s all keep sending them anyway.
For my wellness tip of the week, all I wish offer is this: We only get one chance at this life… For God’s sakes LIVE IT. Spread LOVE. Any way, any where, and to anyone you can. You never know when or where you will have the opportunity to change someone’s life. Use your powers for good. The best thing about giving a smile is you almost always get it back! It doesn’t hurt and it doesn’t cost a thing. And one by one, feel the burdens on your own heart become lifted. Make someone’s day – every day.
For maximum appetite control you may prefer the MNS Max C formula. MNS Max 3 offers noticable energy and appetite control as well, but has approximately half the caffeine as the other 2. In place of the caffeine and extra appetite control it offers superior core nutrition and wellness benefits. There is an MNS for every body. Put one to work for you. Oh, and by the way, when you find your favorite MNS system, you can keep doing it over and over. It’s safe, effective, and you feel amazing. Why stop? Find me and my favorite MNS at Domani Salon & Spa.
Yup. Still cold out and comfort food still seems like a really good idea. And if you thought cleansing meant steering clear of red meat…think again. Just think lean and enjoy. Great for leftovers, especially when you need to pack a lunch for work.

Top O’ the Mornin’ to all you friends and family of Domani Wellness,
Since the pool in my neighborhood reopens the 1st week in June, I figure, that’s 3 months to swimsuit season. This may not exactly be music to YOUR ears, but for the ladies who took part in Domani’s Biggest Winner Contest, spring is looking a great deal more sunny. Even though I cannot announce the winner of the spa package without proper permission, I can say that when I average all the results, it comes to nearly 9 pounds per person! Now, as grand as AdvoCare’s 24-Day-Challenge is, even AdvoCare, the company suggests a 90 day committment.For a lot of people, the first month is just getting the cobwebs out, with the next two seeing some real breakthroughs. The products fill in the nutritional gaps to help with energy and cravings, and ultimately accheive faster results, but these women all worked hard to make positive lifestyle changes, as well. The one thing I heard each of them say is that they feel amazing. And isn’t the first step to accomplishing a goal, having the energy to do it? So find your favorite product(s) to carry forward and give you the tools you need to continue your success. I am so proud of all of you!Two weeks ago at Success School I witnessed the launch of 3 new items for everyone to love. I just didn’t want to get you all too excited until we actually had them on the shelves. So buckle your seatbelts, this ride is gonna be wild!
- 3 new flavors of Spark: Raspberry Tea, Tangerine, & Watermelon – all in one box! AdvoCare is asking everyone to vote for their favorite flavor on Facebbook. But you only have until May 1st to do it. The winning flavor will be the next permanent addition to the lineup.
- An outrageously craveable nutrition bar called AdvoBar Raw. It’s 210 calories of raw fruit and nut energy with ample amounts of protein and fiber to fuel your fire. And finaly, there is now a non-dairy, vegetarian formula meal replacement shake in a rich DARK CHOCOLATE flavor. Check out all that’s new at Domani Salon & Spa.As one fabulous promotion comes to a close, so begins another one. For the entire month of March, we will be featuring Advocare CorePlex multivitamins and offering all 3 varieties at 25% off! “CorePlex® supplement provides a synergistic combination of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that helps supply the body with advanced nutrition for optimal health.* Each ingredient provides nutritional balance to fill the gaps in the average American diet.* It provides the right nutrients in the right amounts to ensure optimal absorption.* And the chelated amino acid-bound minerals in CorePlex make them easily digestible and highly absorbable.*

I have one last oatmeal recipe to wrap up HEART month. Yes, it’s March now, but I had a request for a healthy baked oatmeal. This recipe can be found on the Mayo Clinic website, however, I tweaked it a bit. Serve with no-sugar-added yogurt for added protein and calcium – definitely a breakfast to look forward to!Baked Oatmeal1 tablespoon canola oil1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce1/2 cup pure maple syrup or to tasteEgg substitute equivalent to 2 eggs, or 4 egg whites3 cups uncooked rolled oats2 teaspoons baking powder1 teaspoon cinnamon1/2 to 1 cup chopped or ground walnuts1 cup skim, soy or almond milkIn a good-sized bowl, stir together oil, applesauce, sugar and eggs. Add dry ingredients and milk. Mix well. Spray a 9-by-13 baking pan generously with cooking spray. Spoon oatmeal mixture into pan. Bake uncovered at 350 F for 30 minutes. Makes 8 servings. The values listed below represent the recipe made without the walnuts.

Greetings from Domani Wellness!
Still seeing & hearing great things from the Advocare 24-Day Challengers – keep up the great work!! I’m intrigued at how, though it may work quite differently from one induvidual to another, it does still work. That’s why there are so many options and add-ins. Let’s work together together to find the combination that helps you win. Remember, at almost all times, I’m just a phone call or email away. Please let me find answers any questions you may have. There are just 10 days left to pick up your 24-Day Challange products at the 25% discount, but you have all of February to log your results for the Biggest Winner Contest to win a spa package at Domani. Of course, when you invest in yourself with Advocare, you receive the support and guidance you need in order to reach your wellness goals any time of year!
Many of you are into the second 14 days of your challenge so I wanted to discuss Advocare’s MNS systems as it plays the most dramatic role in the 24-Day Challenge. “Metabolic Nutrition Systems (MNS®) help you target your specific weight management challenges.* MNS Maximum Energy contains a proprietary blend of botanical extracts and nutrients designed to help “rev up” metabolism.* It reflects years of research and development at AdvoCare®, where our Scientific and Medical Advisory Board has searched the world for the safest and most effective energy boosters.* It is the synergistic blends and scientifically proportional amounts of ingredients used in MNS Maximum Energy that make it an exceptional solution for weight management.* For added metabolism support, use it in conjunction with ThermoPlus™ Vitamin and Herbal Supplement.” (borrowed from Advocare.com)

I don’t know about you, but I’m really missing the Wisconsin summer farmer’s market bounty right now. Lucky for us, me can find most everything we need for a healthy diet in the grocery store. So, shop the perimeter, imagine the sun on your neck, and be glad that most everything is still in season SOMEWHERE. Definitely, take advantage of the the shining stars of the winter produce section, sensational citrus! Grapefruit, in particular, are at their sweetest, juiciest, best in January & February. These cancer-fighting, fiber-rich, vitamin-packed little numbers actually contain an acid that slows digestion in order to keep you feeling fuller longer. They’re the cheapest right now, too! Don’t be discouraged if you still find them priced at over $1 each. They’re usually huge and you still benefit from eating 1/2 today and covering the other in the fridge to enjoy tomorrow. Or toss sections into a salad – a whole one would be too much anyway.
Here’s another deliciously creative idea:
Chicken and Grapefruit
4 boneless chicken breasts
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 T bsp olive oil
1/4 c dry white wine
1/4 c chicken broth
3 T bsp grapefruit juice
2 tsp honey
3 c trimmed watercress
2 grapefruit, cut into segments Season chicken with thyme and half of the salt and pepper.
Heat oil in frying pan over medium-high heat. Brown chicken, 6 minutes a side. Add next 4 ingredients. Simmer until reduced to 1/3 cup.
Season with remaining salt and pepper. Put watercress and grapefruit on plates. Top with chicken and sauce. 4 servings Read more:
I like this with over brown rice with broccoli. So easy and so AMAZING!
‘Til next time, the more you squeeze, perhaps the less you’ll have to sneeze! Enjoy 🙂
