Adventures in LA – Part 3

LA adventures continue... with a raw potluck, which was held at Puki's (a new friend introduced by Courtney) house.

It was a wonderful hot evening, surrounded by great people and delicious food. I met my online friend, Debbie Young, and her daughter Sam. Debbie is a beautiful person inside and out, and I really enjoyed connecting with her. If you're not already familiar with her 2 very different blogs, check out Debbie Does Raw, and Grass Fed Momma.

Sam - Debbie's beautiful daughter. I love this pic, she looks like a Goddess. 

Alex and I made 3 different ice creams that afternoon - With minimal time and without an ice cream make, it was more like frosty pudding, but yummy nonetheless. Vanilla, chocolate, and rambutan/ginger flavors, with strawberries, banana, and chocolate sauce... Mmmm.

Puki made an amazing pasta dish. 

Sam made me a gorgeous birthday card, and bundle of flowers from their garden. 

A few days later, Alex and I stopped at Life Food Organic for some "dessert for breakfast", after a sweaty power yoga class. 

Alex with the owner, Annie Jubb.

We shared the key lime pie - it was incredible!

Raw coconut yogurt w raw honey and berries - so nice and light.

Thumbs up, we approve!

We met up with Tonya Kay one afternoon for some raw ice cream and then hit up Sunpower Natural Cafe.

Alex and I shared this cacao shake. It was frosty and deeeelish!
Tonya had the creamy broccoli soup and a great looking salad.

I love the ocean and palm trees... I love California!

It was such a fabulous time, as I'm sure you can see... a bit more still to come (I'm always so behind in posting these things).

    I love this! I've read Kristen's blog and sort of gotten to know her in the raw food's online world.<br /><br />I also recently saw Matt Monarch interview Tonya Kay about her recovery from medication for bipolar and how she stays in balance without medical interventions. It was really a great interview. She is so inspiring I hope to meet her also!!
