Happy 2018!! I’m so excited for this year! My juice bar, Freelyraw Juice and Living Foods, will be opening in May! I’ve been busy working on plans for the new space and preparing ideas with my business coach from the Inland Empire Women’s Business Center.IMG_8526IMG_8626

I’m hosting a Raw Food Potluck on January 20 at 6:15 at my home and all eaters are welcome! PLEASE find further details at Jennifer’s Juice on Facebook or at the Raw in Riverside Meetup Group website.  It’s a great year to start making healthier food choices!

My winter garden is feeling grateful for the recent rainfall here in Riverside. My broccoli is just getting going and I can hardly wait until it’s big enough to harvest. I go through a lot of the kale in my backyard, but thankfully my neighbor Eugene Veres shares his kale crop with me! His kale is always heartier than mine!!

I also wanted to mention that Sage Vegan Bistro in Old Town Pasadena is open for business and they have an amazing menu. I recently went with some friends after we viewed the Rose Parade floats and everyone enjoyed their meals! I had the Raw Walnut Tacos and Vacation Nice Cream. They have other locations as well so check out their website: http://sageveganbistro.com. They serve mostly cooked vegan foods, so it’s a great place to take friends and/or family who may be experiencing vegan food for the first time.

Here’s to a healthy, happy, and bountiful 2018! Create a life you love!
