Recipe of the Month

Crispy, Sticky, Asian Fried Cauliflower (Vegan & Gluten Free)
Heather Christo, Deliciously Allergen Free Recipes

I had some requests for a plant-based substitute for everyone’s beloved fried chicken wings- a game day staple for many. Cauliflower seemed like a good sturdy choice for deep frying and indeed it worked very well! This easy gluten-free batter is crispy and light and turns a lovely golden brown, while perfectly cooking the cauliflower to tender- not mushy!! I also have to say, that in using a smaller size pot, I didn’t have to use an overwhelming amount of oil and the whole frying/cleaning up was really pretty easy and not at all traumatic!

Simple Changes for a Healthier, Happier Home

Stephanie Breckbill

When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, we often zero in on diet and exercise. Sure, those are key, but they’re not the whole picture. The environment where we live can seriously impact our health and happiness too.

Studies show that our home environment can influence everything from mood and energy levels to our immune system and sleep patterns. Good air quality, natural light, and green spaces can boost our well-being, while exposure to chemicals and mold can drag it down.

Creating a healthy home doesn’t have to be overwhelming. It can be as simple as choosing homes with wellness features or making a few changes to your current space. Think energy-efficient appliances, better ventilation, and cutting down on environmental toxins.

By making these adjustments, we can boost our overall well-being and enjoy happier, healthier lives. Our homes are where we spend most of our time, so it makes sense that they should support our health and happiness.

So, next time you’re thinking about improving your health, don’t just focus on diet and exercise. Take a look at your home environment and see what changes you can make for a healthier, happier living space.

If you feel your home environment could use a wellness boost, we can help. At slb design co., we specialize in transforming spaces using what you already have, with a focus on wellness and sustainability. We help homeowners and real estate agents create healthy, inviting spaces that enhance well-being and appeal to buyers. Schedule your discovery call today – your body and mind will thank you for it!

Healthy House Hunting:

Focus On Health & Wellness In Your New Space

By Amanda Klecker

Catching home buyers at the end of their house hunting journey is where I usually find myself. And quite often, by the time I get to them, they’re fallen so in love with the house we’re inspecting that there’s just very little I can do to change their mind if it really ISN’T the right home for them.

By Andy Pace

Creating a healthy living environment used to stop at the doors and windows. But with the ongoing trend of turning our decks into an extension of our living space, it’s a good idea to think about the materials we use to do so.

Unveiling the Healing Powerof Croatia through ZagrebMed
By Pamela Tames

If you watched Game of Thrones, you probably remember the jaw-dropping locations—King’s Landing, Daenerys Targaryen's throne room in Meereen, and the Haunted Forest. They were all shot in parts of Croatia, a country located in southeast Europe, nestled along the Adriatic Sea. As impressive as these iconic spots may be, they’re just part of what Croatia has to offer.

Lagom: A Harmonious Way of Living
By Cassy West

Lagom (pronounced law-gohm) is the Swedish word used to describe an amount or a state which is ‘just right’- not too much and not too little. It is an amount so perfect that it creates a sense of harmony and serenity. Unlike hygge, a Norwegian term for a momentary state of bliss promoting warmth and comfort, lagom is a way of living.
