Recipes for Mommies

December 2, 2010

me & goji partnered up with NYC mama nutritionist & registered dietitian, Jodi Greebal to bring you a new line of cereals in our recipes section. Our second creation, Mommy Munchies, is for nursing moms.

Here is what Jodi had to say about this mix:
“Many nursing moms are extremely hungry and crave something sweet. Our cereal creation provides complex carbs, fiber and protein to fill up the new mom. It also helps kick that sweet tooth while providing the nutrients she (and her baby) needs most.”

If you’re a mom in the NYC area, check out Jodi’s great company, Dindins.

According to Consumer Reports, “Many popular dietary supplements contain ingredients that may cause cancer, heart problems, liver or kidney damage, but U.S. stores sell them anyway and Americans spend millions on them.” (source: MSNBC)

Custom Cereal Me & Goji

The article goes on to say that less than a third of the 54,000 “Natural Supplements” out there have any level of safety and “effectiveness that is supported by scientific evidence” …!!!

Apparently, the FDA has little power in regulating these supplements. This adds fuel to the long-standing debate about whether taking vitamins and suplements is useful at all. Certain studies show some vitamins actually increase the risk of cancer and disease.

What should you do?

Ideally, you should be getting your vitamin and nutrient intake from whole foods, straight from nature, not scientists. More and more research is pointing toward the benefits of eating a high-nutrient whole food diet. Bright colored fruits and vegetables tend to be the most nutrient-dense foods out there so keep it simple. The good news is, these foods are also some of the tastiest on earth!

whole almonds

April 18, 2010

because sometimes sliced just won’t do!  introducing almonds, in their entire glory.  containing big-time protein, fiber and essential monounsaturated fats, almonds are great for active people.

cocoa almonds

March 28, 2010

it starts simply enough with an almond. but then the magic happens through a chocolate coating and a cocoa dust finishing.

words cannot do these little guys justice, they are irresistible. so much in fact that we had to request two samples because alexander ate the first package during a NCAA commercial break (he has since been put on sampling time out).

add some of these soul-satisfying, senses-scintillating, taste bud-teasing orgiastic feast for the mouth, include in your favorite cereal and prepare for breakfast bliss (and a little chocolate milk). start mixing!

acai powder

February 21, 2010

açaí, pronounced “ah-sigh-EE”, is the latest South American superfood that comes from a species of palm trees native to the region. before its booming popularity in the states, it was mostly consumed as a protein-packed food by natives in the rain forests. due to the delicate nature of the fruit, it is mostly found in the U.S. as a dried powder or juice.

while there is a lack of reliable research on this newly popular food, we have been bombarded with customer requests to offer this mythical powder (we succumb easily to peer pressure). while [me] & goji supports no claims of [superhuman] health benefits beyond those that all fruits possess, popular claims include: rich in antioxidants, improved digestion, high in fiber and polyphenols.

add some açaí today and let us know what you think!
