I am Aranzasu, pronounced [AH-RHAN-SA-SUE] 🙂 voice of Santa Monica Soul, passionate about diabetes and obesity prevention. I am a wellness and nature lover, latte drinker, and dancer.  I love learning about different cultures and talking all things self-care, movement, food, and well-being. 

I share nourishing plant-based recipes, stories of self-care and self-discovery, and resources to help you explore an informed and compassionate relationship with food and movement.

Santa Monica and my family are one of my biggest inspirations, hence the name Santa Monica Soul!  My passion for healthy living, my heritage, access to education, the arts and nature in Los Angeles brings me so much joy. I dedicate this community to this beautiful city, my grandmother, my parents, and siblings. 

Thanks for visiting!
