Blue Zones Project- New Year, New You!

BALEENkitchen Becomes the Latest Blue Zones Designated ‘Healthy Options’ Restaurant!

In 2004, Dan Buettner teamed up with National Geographic and hired the world’s best longevity researchers to identify pockets around the world where people lived measurably better. They found five Blue Zones, places where people reach age 100 at rates up to 10 times greater than in the United States. With this research, Blue Zones Inc. partnered with Healthways and expanded the community initiative to California. The Blue Zones Project™ was created by Healthways Inc., in partnership with Beach Cities Health District. Out of 55 competing cities in California, only three were chosen: Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach.

Blue Zones is a community-wide approach to creating healthier, happier and more productive individuals. Blue Zones focuses on making the healthy choice the easy choice. Its mission is to lead and ignite community-by-community well-being transformation, where people live and work together in Blue Zones Communities™ for a better life.
