The Pioneer Spas: Hilton Head Health

We love this destination’s bold, unpretentious admission: “More than a fat farm!” Indeed, this South Carolina seashore retreat has changed thousands of lives with their smartly conceived program of calorie reduction and personal attention to mind/body fitness. We salute them for their inspiration and education.

Lowcountry Crab Cakes at Hilton Head Health

These classic patties are served up and down the Eastern seaboard but the best catch is found right here: lightly breaded, pan browned and finished in the oven. Gently tossing the crab mixture and gingerly patting them into shape will ensure your crab cakes are delicate. The moist, flaky claw meat mixed with the firmer lump gives the patties better texture given the reduced amount of mayonnaise and other “binding” ingredients in this recipe.

Ask Susie: A Spa Trip to Celebrate

QUESTION:

My husband will be turning 65 this month and I would like to suggest we do a ‘spa trip’ to celebrate. We both need to lose at least 40 lbs and want to be able to play golf. We live in South Carolina and would like to drive to a spa location.
