Any turmeric lover is a friend of ours. So, naturally, we were drawn to Jordan, founder of Kor Shots, and had to find out how he glows.
Jordan tried his first freshly-squeezed juice on a surfing trip to Kauai. Inspired by the vitality and health benefits, specifically of turmeric and ginger roots, he got back home to Malibu and founded Kor Shots.
We were lucky enough to visit the organic lemon farm in Malibu where Jordan sources citrus for his shots. We were surrounded by beautiful lemon groves with gorgeous views overlooking the mountains and water. Such a glowing site. The property also inhabits dozens of horses, who we had the pleasure of playing with. Jordan hand-picked some pomegranates for us to taste, which might make their way into some of his future drinks. We loved Jordan's laid back down to earth demeanor- a true surf Malibu beach boy. As we left him, he gave us a taste of some pastries he picked up from Chaumont Bakery. True to his French roots, Jordan has a croissant every morning. We love that he's not afraid to indulge in pastries, yet makes sure to boost up on antioxidants with his beloved Kor Shots throughout the day. This balanced lifestyle is what makes him glow.
HOW THEY GLOW QUESTIONNAIRE
WHERE DID YOU GROW UP: France
WHEN YOU ARE EATING HEALTHY, WHAT IS A TYPICAL…
BREAKFAST: A chocolate croissant (I’m French remember) and a fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. And of course, a KOR Wellness and Vitality shot!
LUNCH: A healthy salad and pasta. (I love pasta)
DINNER: Lean protein and lots of veggies
SNACK: A smoothie or cold-pressed juice and anything with chocolate
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SPOTS/RESTAURANTS TO EAT HEALTHY? I basically cook most of my meals at home, but when I do venture out, I tend to go to some of my favorite local spots in Malibu like Sage Room, Tra Di Noi, Sunlife Organics…or Nobu if I’m feeling fancy.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE INDULGENCE? Nutella crepes
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SPOTS/RESTAURANTS TO INDULGE? There is this great little crepe place in Beverly Hills that I love called “Harajuku Crepe”- the owner is very hard working and makes some of the best crepes I have had outside of France. Also, I have been known to find myself on occasion in the drive thru at In and Out or at Father’s Office…nothing hits the spot quite like a good juicy burger.
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR LAST MEAL ON EARTH? My Spanish grandmother's paella
WHAT IS THE BEST DISH YOU COOK/ YOUR FAVORITE RECIPE? I make a lot of homemade soups with ingredients that I buy at the farmer’s market. They always turn out tasting differently- but I think half of the fun is in the surprise.
WHERE DO YOU GROCERY SHOP IN LA? Malibu Farmer’s Market, Whole Foods
WHAT IS YOUR FITNESS REGIME? (HOW OFTEN & WHAT DO YOU GO) I train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu everyday during the week and spend my free time surfing/paddle boarding/kite surfing. I also enjoy mountain climbing.
WHAT IS YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE? (PRODUCTS, FACIALS, ETC.) I use a sunscreen that I buy in Australia called Bronzinc.
IF YOU WERE STRANDED ON A DESERT ISLAND, WHAT 3 PRODUCTS WOULD YOU TAKE WITH YOU?
1. My Kitesurf gear
2. Kor shots
3. A Genie in a bottle to get me off the island eventually
TOP 3 FAVORITE SONGS? Thumbs up if you're listening to these in 2014
1. "At Night" by Shakedown (Kid Crème Remix)
2. "Orozco" by Tosca
3. "In My Eyes" by Sinema (Kiko Remix)
MOST LIFE-CHANGING BOOK? I’m sadly not a big reader…my girlfriend says I should read Proust because I am French... “In Search of Lost Time” seems a bit lofty of an undertaking at this juncture, so I think I will just stick to my daily reading of Le Figaro, The Financial Times and the Wind/Surf forecast.
WHAT IS THE BEST GIFT YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED? Love.
DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY. Waking up- having a fresh delicious pastry with fruit…going in the ocean….having a healthy lunch...going back in the ocean where there is hopefully wind so I can kite surf…sitting and watching the sunset on the beach while drinking a cold beer with friends.
WHAT IS YOUR MOST VALUABLE BEAUTY TIP/SECRET? Lots of sex and sleep if you can manage.
WHAT MAKES YOU GLOW? I think I addressed this question in my former answer, but to add on, plenty of exercise, good friends, life passion, love, a healthy diet…of course, drinking lots of KOR Shots!!!
