One of my favorite activities in L.A. thus far is the Runyon Canyon, which has amazing views, trails and the fresh air is simply rejuvenating! This trail is close to the home in Beverly Hills I am staying so it makes it a very convenient way to jump start my day.
Caveat: be prepared— the trail is dusty, California after all has a very arid climate, so wear your workout gear and tennis shoes. Also, it gets quite hot while climbing to see the myriad of gorgeous views of L.A., so bring a drink (or two) to stay hydrated. I recently discovered this soda, Zevia, which does not use any artificial sweeteners, has zero calories and is non-GMO project verified. I have been trying to make a healthy living into an entire lifestyle because I noticed not only does it effect my looks externally but it also effects how I feel, i.e., my energy level throughout the day can be low or high as a result of my diet. Thus, a sugar free cola, especially a non-GMO project verified and no artificial sweetener added, made sense to try. Zevia is available in Whole Foods for those of you, like me, who frequent this grocery giant a lot.
On another note, be prepared, the trail is full of adorable dogs running around and enjoying the California sun and stunning landscape. I hope you enjoy the views of Los Angels and follow my journey across this gorgeous city. Until next time, from L.A. with love.
