This past week was one for the books! My friend, Cindy and I hosted an incredible event at A’Maree’s in Newport Beach, CA. Our featured guest was holistic nutritionist, author and all around stunning babe, Elissa Goodman.
The event was punctuated with a nourishing lunch prepared with love by Elissa’s chef, Amber. We sipped turmeric limeade, LOVE water, and juices from Juice Served HERE. A chilled vegan zucchini and basil soup was served in eco-friendly bowls, followed by a colorful GLOW bowl that was filled with black quinoa, greens, beets, sweet corn, avocado and was topped with a citrus dressing. For dessert, Amber combined sweet summer fruit with a vegan, almond-based vanilla cream. SO pretty, so tasty.
Elissa talked about her cancer story that she shares in her new book, “Cancer Hacks,” and how she uses food and supplements to live a healthy life today. She educated us on how we could implement some of her practices into our own lives to help alleviate stress, get better sleep and glow with the flow. We each had an opportunity to ask questions and share our own struggles and successes.
At the end of the event, each attendee received a Swag Bag containing some of Elissa’s favorite items. A BIG thanks to those vendors that gifted us with their products including –
- Thrive Market
- LOVE Reusable Bags
- Jen Landry of Doterra
- The Calm App
- Nutrex Hawaii
- Juice Served HERE, Newport Beach
It has been a goal of mine to bring people that inspire me to speak at live events in Orange County, CA. I want my local community to grow, learn and thrive off of the energy these wonderful speakers bring. I’m excited to host more events in the coming months.
