If you missed the Anywhere Anywhere Passport to Los Angeles, here’s the third of the five itineraries included in the guide:
DETOX

Too many tacos? Reset your system with a day of healthy living, L.A. style

9am

Start as you mean to go on with a cell defending, bone strengthening bottle of ‘California Sun’ from Moon Juice in Silverlake, where the cold pressed juices, nut milks and raw food snacks are 100% organic.

11am

Head to Urth Yoga for the daily $5 donation class, or walk down Sunset Boulevard for a fun, ballet-inspired workout at Pop Physique instead.

1pm

Stop for lunch at Sage; a light-filled café in Echo Park that serves vibrant organic fare to a stylish hipster crowd.

3pm

Head towards Koreatown for an afternoon lost in one in of the area’s many traditional spas. For less than hundred bucks you can enjoy a thorough scrub or massage, plus all day access to saunas, steam rooms, and even complimentary food and drinks. Wi Spa is vast, clean, and (best of all) open 24 hours.

8pm

Make the short journey back to Echo Park for a virtuous dinner at Elf, where the gourmet vegetarian menu and twinkly ambience will satisfy even the most committed carnivore.

10pm

Treat yourself to an all-natural scoop of sorbetto from Pazzo Gelato. Sorbet might not seem like a logical conclusion to a day of healthy living, but the offerings here are organic, seasonal, and completely gluten free.
