This week marks the start of summer which means lots of fun and exciting adventures await us! Traveling around and exploring or just hanging out in your hood, summer is all about enjoying the sunshine and fresh summer food, getting together with family and friends, savouring fresh summer-inspired meals outside and of course, being on the go.
These summer-inspired veggie power bowls are the perfect tasty, nourishing option for a picnic, a trip to the beach, a backyard BBQ or summer potluck. You can play around with the various ingredients to what you have on hand and like best or what is most fresh near you right now, it’s a simple recipe perfect for customizing. Pre-assemble the bowls and cover, bring the dressing on the side and pack up your Yellow 108 Travel Roll up cutlery set for the perfect meal-on-the-road to accompany your summer adventures.
Long Beach’s very own, mission-based Yellow 108 teamed up with San Diego-based Bradley Mountain canvas and leather goods to create The Travel Roll up. It features a waxed canvas roll, bamboo cutlery, and a salvaged cotton napkin. The Yellow 108 x Bradley Mountain Travel Roll up is an eco-friendly alternative to plastic cutlery. It’s easy packable for any trip, for school, or for the office.
Why Bamboo? Bamboo is an amazing plant with incredible strength & regenerative properties. Bamboo has a higher tensile strength than many alloys of steel, and a higher compressive strength than many mixtures of concrete. Bamboo has actually been measured to grow over 4 feet in 24 hours and can be continuously re-harvested every 3 years without causing damage to the plant system. During the time it takes to regenerate, the bamboo plants root system stays intact so erosion is prevented. Continuous harvesting of this woody grass every 3-7 years actually improves the overall health of the plant.
Join us this Saturday, June 20, 11am-2pm, at Howl Adventures for the Summer Solstice edition of Yoga & Yummies, an all-level, donation-based yoga class followed by a summer-inspired gluten-free potluck lunch. Every attendee will be receiving their own Yellow 108 bamboo cutlery set and salvaged cotton napkin. Please RSVP here.
