Lisa Odenweller is becoming a major mover and shaker on the Los Angeles healthy food scene.
After debuting her organic, mostly raw juice bar Beaming in Del Mar outside of San Diego, this winter she opened locations in Brentwood and Santa Monica, and a fourth spot in West Hollywood just opened this month. Half the town is sipping her superfood-boosted beverages or trying a Beaming food-based cleanse.
“Los Angeles is such an amazing city, and we’ve been so warmly received here,” Odenweller says, who could barely call her brand a transplant now. “There’s been a tremendous buzz.”
Then she fuels up afterwards with this personally perfected energizing green smoothie that’s inspired by the menu at Beaming. “It’s so high in protein and keeps my energy up,” she says. Get the recipe, below. —Jamie McKillop
