I must apologize for my long absence. In fact, I have been wildly busy launching a skincream line SASKI. I have all of you to thank for inspiring me to make the line. I had so many requests from readers, friends and even former business associates that I finally embraced the challenge!
My line is not your average line because it does not sit on a shelf aging! It is made fresh and on command after an interview with a member of the SASKI team! Our proprietary questionnaire, developed after years of observation and research, is extremely thorough. Nothing is overlooked. Based upon this interview, SASKI’s resident white sorceress (me!) develops a formulation. The next step is to order the ingredients and to mix the magic. Because SASKI takes some time and is made to measure, it is really ‘haute couture for your skin’. SASKI products must be refrigerated to order to maintain maximum efficacy.

In addition, it has some of my fav anti-aging foods i.e. avocados, lime, buckwheat noodles (soba) and zinc-riddles shrimpies… Foogasms await as do plumpier skin and a higher sex drive!
Nutritional yeast looks like wheat germ and tastes like a nutty, flaky, grated cheddar cheese. It is made from a single celled organism sporting the impressive name: Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, which is grown on molasses and then harvested, washed and dried with heat to kill or ‘deactivate’ it. Because it is inactive, it doesn’t froth or grow like baking yeast. Don’t confuse it with Brewar’s Yeast as it has nothing in common AND, it will not give you a yeast infection (as many misguided people believe!). Continue reading →
