JERSEY TOMATO 3-CHEESE TART
by Jessica Holoka
This beautiful Jersey Tomato 3-Cheese Tart is filled with a trio of cheeses and topped with fresh tomato slices and basil. It’s the perfect vegetarian dish or party appetizer to make with fresh tomatoes from the farmers market or garden!
Summer is coming and so is tomato season here in New Jersey. In my opinion, it doesn’t get any better than a Jersey tomato during summertime! Then again, as a Jersey native, I might be a little biased. While we wait for our own tomatoes to start growing in the backyard, I’ve been hitting up the local farmers market for hot house tomatoes.
There’s a little, local farm nearby that’s open daily during the spring and summer. They have greenhouses filled with an amazing assortment of plants and a market that sells locally made and grown goodies. This time of year, I’m there about every two weeks picking up plants for our garden, baked goods (like those apple cider doughnuts I can never pass up), or seasonal produce.
See the recipe.

HOW MASSAGES ASSIST WITH WEIGHT LOSS
Courtesy of Garrow Wellness Center
Most people have the assumption that massage equals weight loss hence they end up having many therapies with the hope to lose weight while doing nothing else. However, the bitter truth is that massage alone cannot help you lose weight. It has to be combined with working out and good dieting. However, massage benefits can complement other forms of weight loss like workouts and dieting. That being said, the role massage therapy plays in weight loss cannot be overlooked even if the effect is not direct. Research shows that people involved in exercise and dieting coupled with regular massage record more weight loss than those who lack massage therapies. This article looks at the benefits of massage in relation to losing weight.
As it is known, excessive weight gain or obesity is a result of food, and mainly fats. When you have poor metabolism, food is not digested properly hence not absorbed by the body. Instead, most of it is converted into fats, which are responsible for accelerated weight gain, hence, obesity. An abdominal sacral massage focuses on the connective tissues around the stomach area as well as the whole body. This results in increased blood and lymphatic flow in the body. Improved metabolism is therefore recorded, and once this is coupled with workouts and good dietary habits, you will experience massive weight loss. The sacral massage is also meant to release toxins and poisons that are trapped in your abdominal area, causing a blockage of the smooth flow of blood and lymph. READ MORE
