L.A. IS BLOWING UP with new healthy eateries and we can hardly stuff our faces fast enough to keep up! This week, Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop opens up on Abbot Kinney adding even more local, green goodness to the Venice scene. The space feels light and luxe, the food is to-die (we’re obsessed with their pizzas,) and Chef Jon Rollo is the real deal.

Chef and owner, Jon Rollo and husband Joey Gonzalez of Barry’s Bootcamp, are at the epicenter of the wellness scene here in So Cal. They’re involved with this exciting new foodie project too.

Meet Jon below and find out how this healthspirational chef starts his day – and why your should soon include Greenleaf’s goat cheese breakfast pizza…
