Dreaming of traveling to a faraway destination? Get your fix with internationally-inspired recipes and spa treatments! While we wait for spring (and hopefully warmer weather), daydreaming about exotic destinations serves as welcome form of relief. Whether we’re laying on a beautiful beach in Thailand, skiing the slopes of Sweden or riding a camel in the Moroccan dessert during these far-fetched fantasies, the mere idea of a lavish vacation has been enough to get us through. However, if you’re anything like us, there’s simply not enough hours in the day to accommodate the indulgence that we deserve. That’s why we decided to bring a slice of these decadent destinations to you with mouth-watering recipes and internationally-inspired spa treatments that will really transport you to a relaxing place. After all, during Spa Week, from April 21-27, you can go to the spa for only $50 – which is far more affordable than the vacation of your dreams! Spaghetti Squash Noodles with Thai Peanut Sauce via Family Fresh Cooking Spaghetti squash is one of our favorite low-carb ingredients because it so closely mimics the taste and texture of pasta. This Thai dish uses the yummy vegetable and a bevvy over other mouth-watering ingredients to create an enticingly ethnic dish. After getting a taste of Thai food, tickle your senses some more with a $50 Spa Week treatment inspired by the faraway locale.
