Being ingredient enthusiasts, not only translates to the products we use on our face, but also with the food that we eat. Every morning we start our day and our kids with smoothies, tonics and powders from The Beauty Chef. LA is such a mecca for great food that is intelligently sourced, which is pretty much what we do for your skin. A salad (or burger) might taste the same from two places, but the quality of the ingredients affects how you feel after, just like with a great quality face moisturizer!
For food that tastes great (and you can also know where it comes from), some of our local favorites include:
8905 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood
512 Rose Ave, Venice
12460 Washington Blvd, Culver City
1205 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice
1814 Berkeley St, Santa Monica
GLOW RAW ENERGY BARS from THE BEAUTY CHEF are great for a midday pick me up or for energy in the morning.
