Getting your hair colored can be a fun way to spice up your look, but it can also involve a lot of pricy maintenance. Stacey Weinstein, owner of Loft 26 Salon and Once Upon a Bride, who does Bethenny's hair at the show, shares great tips to help make your color last!
Stacey says whether you're a redhead, brunette or blond, you can get away with using shampoo that has color deposits in it to freshen up your look.
"When I was a brunette, I would take the tinted shampoo and I would put it on my hair, wet it a little, lather it and let it sit for five minutes like a home toner. It tints your hair back. It's a quick fix, at home and relatively cheap," she said.
She also recommends a three-step process, starting the day you get home from the salon (or the day after, since we all know salon hair needs to be savored for at least a day) to help keep your hair color fresh way past the expected expiration date.

Fattening foods are often hidden in healthy-seeming foods… and there's no better example than the ever-popular Cobb salad. Who doesn't want a Cobb salad for lunch? But who wants to gain weight eating (wait for it!) over 1,000 calories per lunch from a salad?
Bethenny believes in renovating recipes to wind up with a still-yummy, but less indulgent version. Her Cobb has fewer than half the calories of a regular Cobb… and it still tastes amazing.

Cobb salads give salad a bad name. In many restaurants, this salad is just a big pile of bacon, chicken, blue cheese, hard-boiled eggs, avocado, and ranch dressing over a little bit of lettuce. I don't even want to think about how much fat is in a typical Cobb salad and dressing at a restaurant.
I'm not mad at Cobb salad - I order it sometimes and eat a small quantity, however, what I love about the Cobb salad is that it was originally invented to use up leftovers. If you love the Cobb salad taste and yo

As Bethenny explained on the show today, it's easy to use tofu as a healthy protein. She recommended this marinade to soak it in before you grill it.
Marinated Tofu (to be grilled)
1 14 oz extra firm tofu block drained & dried, cut into 4 triangles
Juice squeezed from 1 lemon
3 Tbs olive oil
1 garlic clove smashed into a paste with 1/4 tsp of salt
ground fresh black pepper to taste
1/4 cup soy sauce
1. Take the brick of tofu and wrap it up in a towel or a couple of paper towels. Weight it down with a heavy plate or sheet pan to get rid of all the moisture.
2. Put the tofu in a bowl. Add ingredients and let sit in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
3. Grill the tofu on a grill pan on the stove. Serve.

3. Add two cups of water. (Remember the 1, 2, 3 rule: 1 cup dry quinoa + 2 cups water = about 3 cups cooked quinoa.) Bring to a rolling boil, then lower heat and cover. Cook an additional 15 minutes or until quinoa is soft and fluffy.
4. Scoop the quinoa into a large bowl using a
