sweetgreen Passion for Pesto Event Recap

As a sweetgreen ambassador for the last six months, I’ve had the pleasure of repping one of my favorite brands non-stop. If you follow me on social, you know that I am a die-hard sweetgreen fan–mostly because it allows me to be a picky eater yet still eat healthy.

Sweetgreen also has incredible ethics that they carry throughout their brand—everything is local, seasonal, sustainable, and responsibly sourced. Their food ethos state, “We believe the choices we make about what we eat, where it comes from and how it’s prepared have a direct and powerful impact on the health of individuals, communities and the environment.” Can I get an AMEN?!

After having so many fitness themed events, I wanted to host something unique and decided to team up with sweetgreen to create a one-of-a-kind experience: Passion for Pesto.

I invited my Instagram community to join me at sweetgreen Hollywood before walking over to the Hollywood Farmer’s Market and purchasing a very large bag of basil.

After exploring the market for a while, we headed back to the store to learn how to make the incredibly delicious pesto vinaigrette salad dressing. We also had the opportunity to learn more about the sweetgreen community while chatting and making new friends.

Each guest walked away with the cutest mason jar of dressing to use on their own creations, a cute sweetgreen tote, and the homemade hot sauce (because, why not?!)!

Thank you to everyone who joined me at the event—and to sweetgreen for being the best hosts!!
