Beautiful, Naturally

Our sister-friend Nitika Chopra was born for TV and this year her dream came true when she became the host of a new talk show, Naturally Beautiful on Veria Living TV.   Naturally Beautiful is all about showing you how you can naturally achieve the beauty that is right for you!

We were honored to be guests, not just once, but TWICE (we’ll be sure to share those clips as soon as they air)!  We had a blast and can’t wait to dish on the recipes we made.

On this episode of HCC TV we talked to Nitika about what she eats to stay so vibrant and, ahem, Naturally Beautiful.  She also shares her top three kitchen staples that double as natural beauty treatments.

And be sure to watch until the end to see how all three of us get our lustrous hair 🙂

To celebrate the launch of Naturally Beautiful we are having a big bash in NYC on September 24th!

It’s going to be super fun.  Come hang out with us, eat some gluten free snacks and mingle with like-minded wellness women.

Saucy: Smoked Salmon Escarole Salad

This is the premiere of our brand new video series: Saucy, where we provide practical answers to you culinary queries with some sass and some laughs.

For our first episode we got an amazing viewer question that we’re sure a lot of you can relate to.  Here’s what she asked:

“We know you ladies are all about cooking but when I get home that’s the last thing I want to do. I just want something easy, light and refreshing. What can I make that will be simple to pull together but still tastes amazing?”  -Leslie

Watch the video below to see how we hooked Leslie up big time.

For the base of this simple summer dinner we incorporated a way underutilized green: escarole.  

We like to think of escarole as kale’s cool cousin from the next town over.

They can both be eaten raw or cooked but escarole has a bit more spice.  Something we never shy away from at HCC.

We layered on some gorgeous smoked salmon, cucumber ribbons and added dots of a creamy goat cheese.  Topped it with some fresh herbs, capers, a simple vinaigrette et, voila!  Dinner is done in 5-minutes flat.

Watch the video below to see it all come together.

Smoked Salmon Escarole Salad
Servings: 2
Time: 5 minutes

  • 6-8 escarole leaves, washed and dried
  • 1 cucumber ribbons (use a vegetable peeler)
  • 1 package of wild caught smoked salmon
  • 1/4 cup of goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon capers or sliced kalamata olives
  • 4-6 basil leaves, roughly torn

Shallot Vinaigrette

  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon shallot, grated
  • Dash of pepper


To make the dressing combine your lemon juice, red wine vinegar and dijon mustard in a bowl.  Grate in the shallot, add a dash of pepper, then whisk well as you pour in your extra virgin olive oil.

Make your cucumber ribbons using a vegetable peeler and toss it well with the dressing–don’t use it all at once.  Pour about 1/2 on your cukes and save the rest for later.

In a plate or bowl, lay down your escarole then layer on your cucumbers, salmon, capers, basil and cheese.  And on a drizzle of extra dressing and dig in!
