Party in Your Mouth – Get Your Mind out of the Gutter! Julie August 26, 2015 Events, Lifestyle, Neighborhoods, NYC Experiences, NYC Happenings Recently I attended Party In Your Mouth. Quite the name, right? And it really was a party in my mouth! Hosted by a unique and new wellness store in the east village, Naturees, Party In Your Mouth was a full on wellness party with a varied assortment of organic, gluten free yummy food, art, gift bags, and all around good vibes. There were live cooking demos presented by Charles Chen and Anthony Anderson, founder of Grow Paradise, which provides an array of services with the mission of promoting the idea of creating paradise landscapes for ourselves and our communities, spoke about creating Food Forests and more! Party in Your Mouth at Naturees Naturees, the new east village wellness shop just a short walk from my apartment, was big news to me. Naturees is the total package when it comes to wellness. They have a completely plant based menu, with equal parts unique and delicious items such as a raw pizza, smoothies, lentil salads, quinoa tabouli, and even a breakfast/dessert bar. I assure you that anything you choose will have you feeling energized and fully nourished. The mission at Naturees is to create a serene environment in an urban setting, combining clean food and lifestyle, trying to bring people closer to the simplicity of nature. To actualize this mission, Naturees provides a variety of programs, including functional movement, yoga, pilates, and more. Food sponsors, including Vega, Farmivore, Navitas Naturals, Love Grace, Dr-Cow Tree Nut Cheese and more, had plenty of samples for us to try throughout the night. My favorites were Kevita, the sparkling probiotic drink, and Cocorau, which creates organic, hand crafted super food delights. Overall it was a fun, casual event and I met lots of interesting people who are involved in the health and wellness community of New York.
