The Sports Club / LA is one of the finest sports and fitness complexes in the world and every amenity they offer is “created to inspire you, challenge you, and surpass your every expectation.”

For our new venture, we teamed up with the talented nutrition and wellness coach, Lara S. Sutton of LSM Nutrition to design 4 custom mixes for the members of The Sports Club /LA.

cereally INVIGORATING: this mix sparks quick starts and sustained energy. your body efficiently converts the natural sugars in apple and banana into quick energy and the Lysine in amaranth helps produce collagen, the protein that fortifies bones and tendons.

let’s see how the 3 top seeds in tennis face up against the 3 top seeds in nature!

roger federer, men’s tennis world no. 1 player
– his wimbledon match against roddick holds the all time record for the most games in the 5th set and broke the record for total games every played in a grand slam.

vs.

chia seed, the high-energy endurance seed that raises hydration levels to the max. how else do you expect to survive a grueling 4 hours and 18 minutes of thrilling tennis?

rafael “rafa” nadal, men’s tennis world no. 2 player:
– the reigning king of clay became the first player to simultaneously hold grand slam titles on clay, grass, and hard court.

vs.

flax seed, the one that fights everything from heart disease and diabetes to even cancer is surely fit for the player who’s game hinges high on defensive pressure. now if only flax could fix one’s fashion sense. like those capri pants.. cerealsly, rafa?

serena williams, women’s tennis world no. 1 player
– after crushing her older sister venus in a mere 87 minutes, it seems that power beats endurance for this super sibling’s a-game.

vs.

– amaranth seed, the highest source of lysine, the essential amino acid that energizes our muscles and strengthens our bones for those power play points or sister show-downs.

well looks like these players just got served three-love. to find your super seed visit meandgoji.com. who knows, you could find a match made in heaven!

one of our cereally talented interns, Pranav, put together this video to introduce people to the new evolution of cereal.

here are some fascinating facts about cereal you never even knew you should know….

#1

cereal was invented by colonial housewives who started serving up popcorn with sugar and cream for breakfast. pocahontas puffs anyone?

#2

the average american eats 160 bowls of cereal each year. that is why [me]&goji capsules can hold over 21 ounces! way more than your standard cardboard box. so eat your heart out, cereal lover.

#3

the first ready-made breakfast cereal was invented by james c. jackson way back in 1863. his recipe was a whole grain flour dough base baked into dry leaves, broken into chunks to be baked again, then ground into even smaller chunks.

sound appetizing? honestly, let’s just be thankful for the cereal revolution. at [me] & goji, you can now enjoy and create unique cereal combinations for every palate.

#4

u.s. and israeli researchers recently found strong evidence that humans refined wheat and barley into cereal over 23,000 years ago! this groundbreaking discovery suggests humans were processing grains long before hunter-gather societies even developed agriculture.

wow, cereal was here way before you were ever born. before colonial housewives settled in the americas. before James C. Jackson decided dry leaves were food. looks like the cave men really knew the essentials, earth. wind. fire. cereal.
