A little boost for the whole self packed with sweetness! This recipe is filled with OMGoddess goodness and a lot of happiness in a little cup. 

The road to yumminess begins here:

Cacao Power + 

1 organic banana

1 tsp chaga powder (our favorite is from Anandamide)

2 tbsp cacao powder

1/2 cup coconut water

1/2 cup almond milk or other milk

1/3 cup coconut flakes or meat 

1/4 cup granola (optional)

1 tsp hemp seeds

1 tsp chia seeds

3-4 dates or 1 Tbsp agave

sprinkle of bee pollen + coconut flakes

Add ingredients in a blender and voila, a natural wholesome kick with a bit of sweetness for your day! Your body will thank you for adding in so many yummy nutrients such as potassium, Omegas, electrolytes, natural sugar, chaga (immune boosting), and lots more vitamins and nutrients!

You may want to play around with the ingredients and the amounts to your liking and your body's personal needs. What calls to you? Maybe adding a nut butter, fresh greens or fruits. This super drink is a wonderful base to alter towards your moon cycle, physical activity or mood.

Hibernation and Reflection!

Hello Ladies Adventure Club!

(We'd rather see you face-to-face in the outdoors but until then, a digital love letter.)

As Winter draws to a close, less the need to close-in and keep in the warmth. We've been away for the holidays, ready to shed our cozy coats and ready for the next adventure. Before we spring forward, we want to highlight the community from our last adventure. It feels like ages ago when we gathered for our Super Moon event and what a lovely mega moon it was!

We came together, like a vacuum of love and support for one another, to gather under the light of the closest full moon to Earth. We brought our strengths and our struggles, our beauty and our passions, encompassing an evening of peace. Maybe the outside world would not hear it, amidst its own chaos, but we left the world outside. Turns out, it was the best thing we did. No cell phones, no politics, no labels, nada - just ourselves. Our evening was all encompassing: filling the well through Yin Yoga, diving deep into each other's hearts through herbal tea and affirmations, and howling at the top of Griffith Park for moon salutations.

We want to thank the generous support of the women who made the event possible:

- Nicole, Doula/Reiki/Yoga services at Love Bloom Birth

-Jennifer, NY/Abu Dhabi based Yoga Instructor at Jen Stewart Yoga

-Adrienne, Yoga Instructor at Rose Garden Yoga

Sienne, founder of Ladies Adventure Club

-our wonderful volunteers who assisted with our tea and moon pendant craft

Every woman brought the community closer together. Simply listing our "Leadies" purpose does not do them justice for the gifts they offered that continue to carry with us on our journey. It is a labor of love to put on an event such as this and we are also so grateful to all who attended. Thank you humans for your generosity and spirit!

We look forward to seeing you at our next event! We leave you with the following questions: where are you and where can you make space to open your heart to your own adventure?

LAC feature: The Raw Juicery

Hey, Ladies! As our very first feature I'm incredibly excited to share with you something that's not only awesome, but it's also been important to me and my journey toward living a more healthy and balanced life.

A couple years back I had surgery to remove a tumor from one of my ovaries. During the recovery period there was a time when my body wasn't able to digest whole foods quite yet, so my nutrition needed to come almost entirely from fresh pressed juices. I love juice as much as the next gal, but after awhile of nothing but, I had had it with so many bland or uninteresting juices. And then finally…

I stumbled upon THE RAW JUICERY! It was their flavor called Mother Earth that caught my eye (of course it did) and swept my taste buds off their feet. It's a green juice with a kick of lemon and ginger. I liked it so much I decided to give one of their other juices a try. And then another. And then another. And so on and so on, until I'd tried and loved them all!

We've got some tasty fresh pressed juice in the Los Angeles area, but what makes The Raw Juicery stand out is their knack for combining pure, natural, whole fruits and vegetables in beautifully unexpected ways. Organic, raw with a whole lot of craftsmanship. These people are straight up magicians. Or artists, I suppose, as they've been crafting from their production facility in the Arts District downtown for the last few years.

Whatever your system is craving to bring you back into balance, TRJ has a juice for you. Whether it's fruit forward, heavy on the greens, naturally sweetened with dates, or earthily decadent with cacao nibs and cinnamon, they've got you covered! (Do yourself a favor and try their Almondy Mylk - the delicate flavor of vanilla bean and Himalayan pink sea salt is just the perfect balance… and the perfect dessert!)

I can't say enough about these juices and the wonderful people who make them. They take pride in sourcing their ingredients consciously, with an eye towards finding them close to home and ethically grown, and organic absolutely whenever possible. No preservatives, nothing added. Pure. Simple. The perfection of nature.

Not only are they a go-to for a healthy boost but they can literally go to you if they are not already in your neighborhood! TRJ delivers your cleanse package right to your door, or you can opt to pick it up from one of their setups at local farmers markets around town. You can also find their bottles popping up in some of our favorite places around town, like Stamp Proper Foods in Los Feliz, Lamill Coffee in Silver Lake, Locali Venice, Love Coffee Bar in Santa Monica, and Zinc Cafe & Market downtown. And more to come soon, I hope!

Even if they're not at your neighborhood market quite yet, fret not. You can track them down online at www.TheRawJuicery.com. And stay plugged in to their blog where they've got tons of useful information about health, fitness, why cleansing can be an important part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle (especially for us city dwellers), and a whole lot more.

We are so lucky to feature The Raw Juicery! Their juices were a rebooting treat for our ladies during our Fall Retreat and has played a key role in my journey toward a living life I want to live: happy, healthy, and connected to Mother Earth (actual, not just the fresh pressed juice version). I hope you'll check them out, and if you like their work as much as I do, let them know! We could all use a little love, right? Ladies Adventure Club thanks you The Raw Juicery for doing your thing so beautifully!

Until the next feature, stay juicy ladies - to your health and happiness!
