Thanks to all of you who came out to last week’s #EvenBetter Ocean Spray event in Hermosa Beach. I love meeting you all in person and being able to finally put a face to your name.
I am so grateful to have been invited to participate in the day’s events, which included a chat from a NYT-bestselling Registered Dietitian (Frances Largeman-Roth), Maria Menonous (one of my personal fitspirations), the new PACt™ cranberry extract water, and the glorious giant 61 foot inflatable cranberry (which made my day)!
I was invited to teach a couple of classes, along with two fitness friends: Cassey, Founder of Blogilates and Gina, Founder of Fitnessista and we had a blast rockin’ it out on the beach…I just wish we could have taught a tandem class!
After just returning to SoCal from Aspen, I was so thrilled to be teaching in the hot sun, on the sand, feeling the sublime Ocean Spray! Such a gift to be able to practice in the elements and in the midst of such a creative setting. A huge shout out to Ocean Spray and the whole team for creating such a fun, inspiring atmosphere – prompting passerbys on the strand to feel the groove and jump into class….even the security guard was busting out his Warrior I on the beach!
After teaching, I had the opportunity to listen to Frances speak about the benefits of a fresh, whole foods diet, and answer questions from the crowd. She reminded me of one of my favorites: “eat the rainbow.” It’s something that I try to follow aiming to have a variety of vivid color on your plate. I’ve been pretty obsessed with the greens (broccoli, kale, chard, leeks). But, I’ve been working with an incredible functional MD lately who has been schooling me on the need to boost the orange and reds….the antioxidant-rich carrots, sweet potatoes and cranberries.
It honestly makes me soooo happy to see a mega brand like OceanSpray offering healthy choices like PACt™, which is a super-refreshing water alternative packed with the benefits of 50 cranberries (through an extract providing proanthocyanidins, which isn’t found in water alone). The ingredient list is simple. It’s sweetened with stevia, agave and monk fruit extract (YAY!). It’s perfectly sweet and each bottle has only 10 calories with no additives or preservatives.

Thanks to all who came out!
