My lovely and generous friend Lynn invited some of the gals over for a relaxing beach day in Marina Del Rey.  What a fabulous day with some powerhouse women!  There was Taryn, Jenny, Coriann, Rachelle, Melanie, Jen, and Lynn.  It always inspires me to be around such driven women!

And they were kind enough to be my ginny pigs while I develop a new veggie burger recipe!

I also made a raw kale salad with watermelon and candied walnuts.

And a vegan poundcake with strawberries and balsamic glaze:

Such a fun girls day!  Do you do staycations like this?  I highly recommend!

Thanks again Lynn for hosting and these great pics! For more details check out Lynn’s post on the day!
