Afull 13 percent of chocoholics admit it: Giving up the dark stuff for Lent led to panic, tears, and unexpected cravings for double fudge cake fried in bacon grease. Indulge your love of delicious food without feeding your junk food addictions with today's Gather Green deal: For $25, you get a green gift bag full of delicious superfoods, and eco-friendly products -- and an invitation to a Get Fresh cocktail party and film night.
It all begins at 6 pm on Thursday night, May 5, when you'll arrive at the Vortex Immersion Dome ready to party it up with fellow GatherGreeners over organic cocktails, superfood snacks, and good green company. There, you'll get to sample bites and delights from eco-friendly companies. Let Theo Chocolate's decadent organic chocolates melt in your mouth, munch on Kaia Foods' raw kale chips and pumpkin seeds, nibble hemp from Nutiva, and taste nutritious, raw, superfood drinks from Healthforce Nutritionals.
Decadent food won't be the only draw at this party: You'll enjoy music, a raffle -- with chances to win eco-friendly and healthy products -- all while sipping on eco-friendly drinks from the open bar. At 7 pm, you'll take a seat to watch Fresh, a fascinating film about Americans who are reinventing the food system to make it greener, healthier, and more sustainable. Then get ready for a lively discussion with some local activists -- like L.A. school gardens champion Mud Baron, Anna "The Seed Lady of Watts" Carter, Health Force Nutritionals founder and naturopath Jameth Sheridan, CSA California founder Sara Paul and Nutiva CEO John Roulac -- about how to become part of the fresh food solution.
Post-panel, stick around for a raffle of eco amazing goodies. Then it's back to cocktail hour. Eat raw, drink organic, and be merry until 10:30 pm, when you'll get to leave the event with the best parting gift of all -- a goodie bag packed with $70 worth of fresh foods and eco-friendly products. Among the coveted items: organic chocolate bars, raw kale chips and pumpkin seeds, truganic superfood supplements, hemp seeds, a reusable water bottle from Ecousable, and a coupon from Beyond 02, to fill that puppy up with pure alkaline water.
Get this deal now, because only 150 lucky GatherGreen subscribers will get to come to the party -- and leave with the gift bag. The goodies will kick start your spring cleanse and new, green, post-Earth Day diet -- so you can spend a blissful summer at the beach, not at the doctor's suffering through an unplanned colonoscopy to get that congealed mass of deep fried cake out of your system.
In search of good health, vegetarian dinosaurs licked up vats of algae and masticated bales of kelp -- crying big dino tears because they didn't have a Vitamix to blend the healthy sea stuff into tasty smoothies. Don't cry yourself into extinction -- Get delicious nutrition at the GatherGreen Get Fresh party, where delicious snacks will get their powerful punch from superfood ingredients like chlorella, cacao, hemp, and chia. Kaia even offers a free raw recipe booklet for its yummy living foods -- so you can whip up scrumptious superfood smoothies after you get home.
