I am thrilled to announce that my first organic smoothie & juice bar, Glow Bio is officially open!
In the last few days since we’ve opened, it’s been a pretty surreal experience. I’ve gotten to meet and talk to lots of awesome people in the Beauty Detox community that are living the Beauty Detox lifestyle! It’s like seeing the contents of the book come to life and start walking around. Living on its own! It has been moving and amazing for me. I’ve met people that are changing their lives with this information- losing tons of weight, getting off medications that their body doesn’t need anymore to run properly, improving their digestion and skin, having more energy and in general enjoying their life more. It is wonderful and thrilling and humbling for me to hear, as a channel for this information to flow through. May we all continue to grow and support each other on the path.
And seeing my green smoothie recipes available in a public space has been a trip. Usually I only get to make them for my clients, and really only get to regularly talk to clients, people on a set, and to you guys only in cyberspace through the blog comments, FB and Twitter (BTW I know I’ve been slow to answer some as it has been nuts. But I will get around to it!). But now I get to talk to everyone about the inspiration behind the recipes and their benefits. And just meet everyone, which I love!
You know how “they” say life is a big adventure and you don’t know what you’ll get next? Well opening Glow Bio is a case in point! For the last many years, I backpacked around the world, took a pause, and then started traveling quite vigorously again, but the latter times as a nutritionist, traveling with clients around the country and world for film and press work.
So creating a brick & mortar store in the heart of Melrose, Los Angeles, is something that is very contrary to my free-flying lifestyle. It’s a different experience for me to feel that a physical space is quite permanent in my life (as much as possible in this life anyway). I’ve had my place in NY for a while, but I end up leaving from it for long periods. Here, Glow Bio really feels like a home base to me where I will be circling around for a long while, like a honing station, though I’ll also be traveling back and forth to NY and other places as well as I need to.
Every day Glow Bio grows and develops! We added these benches I found that are made from reclaimed wood from Jodhpur, India. You can see a thousand different paint colors on them; a fading memory of multiple elaborate Indian festivals the benches have lived through. I love their energy. The bee pollen at Glow is sourced fresh from my beekeeper. The recipes are all packaged into bundles according to the goal you would like to focus on- whether it is enhancing energy, increasing beauty, supporting a fitness regimen, weight loss, or creating overall balance. I highly recommend the Glowing Green Foundation, which includes the GGS, our LemonAid Probiotic shot, the GGJ and Power Green cold-pressed juice. The menu is designed so that I can truly be a nutritionist and friend to everyone that steps into Glow Bio.
It’s not to say that it’s been a dandy journey with no hitches. Like anything in life, there has been sunshine and thunderstorms. The builder built our cabinets to the wrong specs and they had to be redone. Our signage came in wrong due to a glitch in our proof, and now we have to get that redone also. Our phone just started working today! And no, the full website isn’t up yet (should be this week though). Our awning isn’t coming for a while, and neither is the middle counter of our open kitchen. But I’ve been working on embracing the process- and yes, it has been a process! It’s a yogic lesson in non-attachment. Watching Glow Bio unfold and come to life as a safe space for health and a happy community space has been really amazing. We are gearing up in the near future for deliveries in LA and soon after deliveries nationwide for all our products and cleanse packages. So don’t worry non-LA beauties, stay tuned for that.
Please come visit us if you are in LA, and please share it with friends and family in LA! We are at 7473 Melrose (cross Gardner). We have an outdoor patio too ☺ . See you here!
With much love and gratitude,
8am – 8pm Mon – Fri,
9am – 8pm Sat & Sun
Sounds so wonderful Kimberly! Congratulations on all your success! I have been following the BDS for over a year now, and my life has changed in so many wonderful ways, largely due to your ongoing support and informative blogs. I’m truly thankful to you 🙂
I was wondering if you have plans to ship to or open in Australia?
All the very best!
Love Julia xx
congratulations hopefully I will get to go there one day by the way you look absolutely gorgeous
Kimberly, I wish I was in LA! I would be a regular visitor at your place. I live in Lima, Peru, but got your Beauty Detox Diet book and am a follower of your great advises.
Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge and God bless you, Kimberly!
PLEASE BUILD ONE IN NYC SO I CAN WORK FOR YOU!!! Or at least email me and I will work for you in a minute I know everything about the book and lifestyle and am always spreading your word!!!
Excellent! I am SO happy for you, Kim! You have done some tremendous work and inspired so many people including me. Keep it up, gorgeous! Good luck with it all 🙂
Lots of love
I live in Nashville, TN but would love to try some of the juice/smoothie packages you have on your GLOW BIO website. Will you have an option for ordering/shipping outside of CA ?? Love everything about you and you are such an inspiration 🙂
Can’t wait to visit.
Can’t wait for one to open in NYC!
Please tell me you will franchise?
Please tell me you will franchise?
Congratulations Kimberly I am so happy for you and wish you the very best with GlowBio. Your book has certainly changed my life and I know that this will be a great way to change even more lives. I can’t wait until we see your products here in Minnesota!
As some of us are gluten free, I decided to make your pecan pie for Thanksgiving. It was very easy to assemble and actually tasted good. I must say, though, that I am madly in love with the traditional pecan pie but will modify it to change from Caro to either Silan, which is an Israeli date syrup or make my own thick simple syrup.
So for my news………………..I actually liked the crust of the pecan pie better. This was, if any of you don’t remember, 3 ingredients. Coconut flakes, walnuts and dates mixed well in the food processor. Then you press this mixture into a pie pan to make the crust. Put it into the freezer to set and wow, a fabulous pie crust. What I did was cut the crust into squares before I froze it and drizzled dark chocolate all over the top. Then I froze it and it is better than any store bought protein bar or candy. All my friends are tasting and it’s unanimous! Love love love !
Awesome! Congratulations on the new business. 🙂
Congrats!!! I would LOVE to be able to relocate to LA; just to be able to go everyday to you’re Glow Bio! I will for sure do lots of shopping via-online. Lots of xoxo, Linda, San Antonio,TX

Good Morning Kimberly,
I am so pleased for this wonderful accomplishment and addition to the community. Thanks for continuing to spread such positive information about our body in connection to diet. You’re an inspiration.
I live in Nashville, TN but would love to try some of your smoothies/juices you sell at GLOW BIO!!! Will you have an option on your website to order smoothies or juices to be shipped outside of CA? I would love to enjoy your healthy concoctions even if I can’t come to your brick and mortar location! You are such an inspiration and am thankful to have found you!! xo
Congratulations! Since I’m not in LA, I can’t wait until you start the nationwide deliveries.
I’m so excited to visit your Smoothie/Juice bar so that I can take my husband and son and get them to try them…on another note will you please consider having your book printed in “Spanish”. I would love to purchase as gifts to my family members, however they only speak spanish. Something to think about…
Your Loyal Fan,
Congratulations!!!!! It looks like everyone was having a good time. Wishing you much success, AND hopefully open one in Denver.
Your Glow Bio looks like a really great, needed community service. Now, if you could only open a shop in Lake Oswego, Oregon!!!!! Best wishes for your endeavors!
When can we get a location started in Texas? specifically the DFW area? I would love to work for you!
I have just started the blossoming beauty phase and I am loving it so far. I find that the afternoons I crave something sweet most days. Is it ok to have a cup of warm almond milk with stevia and cinnamon at those times? I know we are supposed to limit nuts in this phase.
Thanks so much!
Thank you so much, Kimberly! Thank you for your book and knowledge, which came at the time in my life when I am really ready to receive the information about great health. I do hope you can open stores in other states; I’m in New Mexico. I would love to grow food for your fabulous smoothies! I plan to meet you one day. Thank you!
what a awesome thing. iI would like to open one here where iI live. Is
there any franchise to this? I love everything that you create. please if you have give me some information on a franchise. Aloha, DeeDee
Congrats on the launch Kimberly! I’m a very new reader/follower of yours and have been loving your recent posts. The store opening looks to be a great success, any plans for something in Sydney, Australia?! 🙂
Kimberly best wishes. And I can’t wait to visit Glow bio the next time I come to La!,,You look beautiful by the way in that green dress at the opening! I an going to Kauai in 2 weeks and your book will be my bible there! Thank you for all of your wonderful emails to all of us Your the best, Margo
Wow, it is so wonderful to see all the amazing things happening to you since we met back in 2010! I look forward to hearing more about the JuiceBar. I have already purchased your book for many friends and family as gifts, would love to do the same with the juice.
Everyone is asking for you to open a franchise in their area – and so am I. Please consider Los Gatos, Ca (NorCal!) for a host of people who would support your bar. I would even help market (-:
Oh my goodness Kimberly!! SO excited to hear you opened a juice/smoothie bar!! I obviously now have to make a trip out to LA. Hopefully you will expand to Houston in the future!
Congrats Kimberly!!!! I really can’t wait for you to open a store in Manhattan! Wishing you all the best and of course an abundance of health, happiness and continued success in 2013! 🙂
Best of Luck with your new shop! I live outside Philadelphia & have a small business myself & would love to sell your products once you start delivering outside LA. everyone in the world needs to use your products! Just got your book & can;t wait to read & live by your program.

IF YOUR INTERESTED MY PHONE NUMBER IS 678 859 6448 OR EMAIL ME!:) IN KINDEST REGARDS, ANDREA SHIRK
My neighbors son is severely autistic and I was wondering if you had a special diet which he could follow. Also, does your holistic doctor know of one in Southern California that she could bring her son to? She lives around Los Angeles (Torrance, CA).
Thanks for your time and help
I’ve been thinking of doing a raw diet because I’m having a lot of digestive issues. I ran across Kimberly’s website and I’m thinking about starting on a raw diet. I was wondering what kind of foods do you eat and what holistic doctor do you use? Any info would be great.
Would LOVE to open your shop here in North Carolina, we really need this shop out here. Nothing like it. I believe your shop is really something and I hope you consider opening up shops around the country. Sounds like many of us are very interested and would even love to be trained as to spread this way of living. Please let me know if you decide to franchise!!! Great way to spread your knowledge around the country!
