Get a healthy ‘Taste of Blue Zones’ on March 5th 

Twenty-three restaurants in the Beach Cities volunteered to dish up Blue Zones-approved menu items to help raise money for local schools

Interested in sinking your teeth into delicious food and a good cause in the Beach Cities? Mark your calendars for the “Taste of Blue Zones” on Sunday, March 5.

Beach Cities Health District (BCHD), one of the largest preventive health agencies in the U.S., is hosting the mouthwatering community event, which will give the public a rare opportunity to taste and sample many of the healthy and delicious dining options being offered by local Blue Zones Restaurants. Better yet, all proceeds go to the Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach educational foundations.

“Taste of Blue Zones” will be held at the Manhattan Beach Civic Plaza from 2-5 p.m., and feature food from 23 popular Blue Zones Restaurants, including local favorites like Darren’s, Four Daughters Kitchen, Hermosa Beach Fish Shop, Sacks on the Beach and many more. Menu items range from fresh mahi-mahi ceviche, smoked fish and ahi tostados to gluten-free pasta, sautéed beets, roasted pita bread with hummus and much more. There will even be an assortment of healthy drinks for attendees to enjoy, including cold-pressed organic juices and veggie-fruit smoothies.

“This is a great opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate the healthy restaurants we all enjoy in the Beach Cities and raise money for our local educational foundations,” said Lauren Nakano, BCHD director of the Blue Zones Project. “It’s a true win-win: great food for a terrific cause.”

A Blue Zones Restaurant is an eatery that has successfully optimized its dining experience – though tactics like highlighting nutritional menu items, eliminating deep fryers, removing salt from tables and using smaller plates and glassware – to encourage patrons to make healthier choices. BCHD began designating businesses as Blue Zones Restaurants in 2010, the same year it launched the nationally acclaimed Blue Zones Project in Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach. Currently there are more than 130 Blue Zones Restaurants open for business in the three cities.

Tickets to the Taste of Blue Zones are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Children 11 and under are free (when accompanied by an adult) and can experience the AdventurePlex play zone just outside the venue for free as well. There will also be a silent auction featuring a wide variety of coveted items and experiences donated by locals – including a full day at sea for 20 people aboard Dive N’ Surf’s boat, “Disappearance.”
