We caught up with Lena to find out more about her:
Describe yourself in a sentence... I'm a healthy recipe developer, vegan lifestyle coach and mom of 2 from South California. I hope to inspire others to live a happier and healthier life.
My love for food began... When my grandma prepared different amazing desserts every time I visited her. Nobody could beat her fruit pies and jams.
My idea of food heaven is... A world full of affordable organic colourful fruit and vegetables full of vitamins and minerals. We buy tons of fruits weekly on the LA Wholesale Produce market. I wish every family could buy fruits, berries and veggies there.
My Feel Good tips... Eat healthy, sleep enough, exercise at least 5 days a week and drink plenty of water with lemon.
I’m inspired by... All the beauty in the world. And all I do, I do for my kids. Teya is 4 and Leo is 2 years old. They inspired me to change our lifestyle and we all became vegan in 2013.
Baobab or moringa? I’m a huge fan of both, but definitely use baobab more often. I actually eat it as it is with a spoon sometimes. I use it in any sweet creations I make, from smoothies to cheese cakes. I really like its taste.
