Mali Hunter’s World Famous Dinner Introduces Toyota Green Initiative at Tree Sound Studios Monday 30 October, 2017

Seems like the world is going green am I right? I think its an awesome thing to go green with our living and especially our eating and I went to an event that highlighted this in Atlanta. It was different because it was located in an Atlanta studio and it blended the love of music and holistic green living into a great night with great vibes.

Chef Mali Hunter, Atlanta very own Chief Operating Officer/partner  of Tree Sound, hosted one of her world famous dinners calling it “Green” Eats & Dope Beats” — in collaboration with Toyota Green Initiative program. I have been going to Mali’s private dinner party for years, but this event was exclusively different from her others as we were introduced to food in a holistic way. I love holistic everything so I was excited to attend this special dinner!

A very unique place, but this collaboration was even more unique as Mali hosted this “Green” Eats & Dope Beats” with a new generation who is introducing health, wellness and food in the most holistic way.

Mali fed us, and all of the food was farm raised from her personal farm/garden that she goes to to harvest the food and serve her meals. All food items were prepared using locally grown and sustainable sourced ingredients. So not only is all of this food delicious, but it  farm-to-table organic meals! This is what make Mali’s world famous dinners so famous!

This dinner was delicious and also very informative. I am on my own holistic journey, and this is amazing that this dinner highlighted locally sourced and farm organic produced meals. I am definitely trying to eat better and be more conscious of living a better and greener lifestyle.

Thanks Mali for having me for another successful + delicious dinner. Me + close friend Kesh at Mali’s Green Eats & Dope Beats event

So in honor of “Green Eats & Dope Beats” event at Tree sound Studios, Toyota was a title sponsor for the very popular music fest Afro Punk. I was gifted with tickets as a plus one with my friend The Sistah Chick, to attend my 1st Afro Punk concert, as I drove to both days in the new Toyota Corolla iM! Stay tuned for next post on how I drove to Afro Punk in this Toyota and my stylish festive getup for that weekend! Toyota is doing a better job of  producing cars that are good for the environment and eco-friendly.
