Sign up now for the new Earth Day Smoothment that begins on April 23. Chef Julie and our grassroots 'street team' are still roaming the East Coast doing in-store Smoothment Tour classes and demo events at retailers in New Jersey, Philadelphia and Upstate NY, so read on to learn more about where the Tour has been and where it is going in April near you.
In January 2012, Navitas Naturals kicked-off the Smoothment with a web-based, week-long program to inspire people in the New Year to add a healthy superfood smoothie to their daily diet. The initial online version featured seven 60 Second Smoothie videos by Chef Julie Morris and advice on how to make organic smoothies with specific functional benefits.
While that online program was a big success with more than one thousand participants and an abundance of fun interaction, there is still nothing like meeting people in person to share our culinary and nutrition advice about superfoods and smoothies. That's why in March & April we took the Smoothment directly to the people grassroots style one smoothie at a time.
Chef Julie and the Smoothment team have been busy visiting dozens of stores on the East Coast providing superfood cooking classes, smoothie demos, store staff trainings and book signing sessions for her new book Superfood Cuisine.
With full-on support from the dynamic, friendly team at Topline Marketing Inc. - our Northeast sales partner, and Navitas and retailer staff, Chef Julie Morris has already performed in-store superfoods events at many Whole Foods Markets and independent natural foods stores in Boston, Rhode Island, New York City, New Jersey, Maryland and Washington D.C.
You still have a chance to join the Smoothment Tour action in the Philadelphia-area the week of April 8-13, and in Syracuse, New York on April 15 for the tour grand finale at Natur-Tyme. We're already planning for the next Smoothment Tour that will take place on the West coast this summer. Please send us a post about a California, Oregon or Washington natural products store that you love and recommend that we do an event at.
A feature in the Providence Journal helped entice customers to the event.
