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.

Recipes for the Mommies

November 23, 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. The first one we are featuring is Mama Cereal.

 

Here is what Jodi had to say about her creation:
“During pregnancy, expectant moms really need double the nutrition, not double the calories. Our MAMACEREAL creation, helps an expectant mom get so many different nutrients she needs, especially some of the most important ones like folate, calcium, iron, fiber, choline, omega-3 fats and protein.”

Try some today!

for the last two years, [me] & goji has partnered with American Forests on Earth Day for our 1- cereal 1-tree campaign. it has been a great success. we have received tremendous feedback from you so we thought we would give you a brief update on the specific project that the [me] & goji fam (that’s you!) has aided: American Forests’ Wildfire ReLeaf program. Thank you to everyone who supported the campaign this year!

From the American Forests website: AMERICAN FORESTS’ Wildfire ReLeaf program is a large-scale tree planting initiative started in 1999 to plant millions of trees in areas scorched by catastrophic wildfires. The dramatic wildfires in southern California in the fall of 2007 have created tremendous additional need for reforestation. With the increase in size and intensity of wildfires comes a more urgent need to rehabilitate damaged areas to prevent further degradation of forest ecosystems.

Drought conditions in many states, including California, and the effects of decades of fire suppression have given rise to hundreds of fires in the United States. AMERICAN FORESTS designated a fund specifically to restore California forests after receiving an outpouring of questions and requests from California residents and people across the United States.

AMERICAN FORESTS has set a goal of planting a million trees in the state.

[me] & goji presents…

VH1-Hip-Hop-Honors [me] & gojiwhen VH1 reached out to us about creating a special mix for the 2009 VH1 Hip Hop Honors show, we just couldn’t resist the creative possibilities. besides, this year the show is honoring Def Jam, the company that Adam worked for before [me] & goji. Finally, the event is held to raise money for the VH1 Save the Music foundation so everybody wins!

This is the label we designed for the event that went on top of the Cereal Capsules. It is in the style of the records Def Jam sends out to DJs when a new song comes out.

The VH1 Save The Music Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education in American public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child’s complete education.

2009 VH1 Hip Hop Honors airs Tuesday, Oct 13.

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.

whoa! PROTEIN: this mix satisfies your appetite & your muscles by packing 8 grams of straight-from-nature (not scientists) protein and 5g of fiber. with only 4g grams of sugar, you can be confident you are getting the most out of each calorie you put in.

a couple weeks ago, we posted about the event we sponsored for Farm Sanctuary.

the event was a blast!  we met lots of cool people like Chloe Jo from GirlieGirl Army, John from Boston Baked Bonz (vegan doggie treats!), Cory Feldman, Jennifer Coolidge, and Marcia from Blackwell’s Organic Gelato.

the event was a huge success and raised lots of money toward taking care of hundreds of animals that were rescued from natural disasters around the country.

for us, it was a great opportunity to talk up [me] & goji to lots of like-minded people (and enjoy some wintry cocktails).  we were pleasantly surprised to discover how many people had already heard of us and ordered before!
