I Broke My Neck. Now What?

Bike Racing is Dangerous -How to Eat to Aid Healing: a nutritional recovery strategy Sunday June 9th I drove 3 hours up to Sutton, MA to do the Purgatory Road Race (aptly named) in the Pro, 1, 2 category.  I had done this race the past 2 years and it's always very hard. I have no chance of winning it but it really pushes my fitness to the next level once I recover a few days. The course is difficult but this...

How to Use Zenberry for Quick Workout Recovery

How to Use Zenberry for Recovery The most important time to consume calories after your hard workout or race is the 30 minute window immediately after you finish.  The body is primed to take up glycogen (the stored energy in your muscles) at this time so don't miss it or you won't recovery quite as well.  What else is important? Studies show that some simple sugars (one of the few times pure sugar is good), a little bit of protein...

Zenberry Vegan Protein Pancake Recipe

"...but where do you get your protein?" A vegetarian since 2003/2004, I've heard this question more times than anything else.  Especially since I've been a competitive endurance athlete that entire time.  I can tell you that my athletic performance only improved once I became a vegetarian and I think that was due to the lower inflammation and the fact that it was much easier to maintain my optimal weight for racing.

How to Transition to Spring

I hope this note finds you well. As the nutritionist on deck for Zenberry, I wanted to check in with you and see how you're doing and if you've started adjusting your food and lifestyle to meet the season. You know that living a life as close to nature, circadian rhythms and seasonal variation as possible is the healthier way to live. Yet, how do we make it work when we live in big cities, congested and polluted with an...

Zenberry at WeWork

WeWork Last week, Emma and I were invited to share samples of Zenberry to all of the members at WeWork on Lexington Ave in Manhattan.   We had a lot of fun meeting all of the diverse, driven and creative entrepreneurs and professionals that share this beautiful space. Goji Fitness/Zenberry rents space at the location on Fulton Street further south so we are familiar with how great this new type of shared business space is in today's world. What is WeWork? WeWork is...

Chai-licious Smoothie Recipe

This warm, comforting drink is just what we need during the colder months of autumn and winter. The calming chai spices help warm the body from the inside and taste delicious this time of year.  Zenberry Vanilla Chai uses a custom organic, fair-trade spice blend not a cheap chai flavoring like most other drink mixes on the market. Ginger, cinnamon, real vanilla, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, cloves and a little black pepper (learn more about benefits of chai spices here)....

Vanilla Chai Frozen Yogurt Smoothie

Vanilla chai frozen yogurt smoothie is delicious. Yogurt, whether made from dairy or non-dairy milk, is delicious and filled with probiotics which can help your guy flora balance. We prefer to use vegan yogurts but the choice is yours.  There are some really delicious coconut yogurts on the market and Anita's is one of our favorites.  Ok, maybe we are biased because they started in Brooklyn just like Zenberry but I'm sure you will agree once you have a...

Zenberry Energy Smoothie Recipe

Would you eat more vegetables if they tasted like chocolate?  We would! This energy smoothie uses Zenberry Greens which is packed with  leafy greens like kale and spinach but it doesn't taste like lawn clippings or medicine. We hate that.  In addition to the leafy greens it has grasses like wheat and barley grass, sea vegetables (one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet), algae like spirulina and chlorella, probiotics and enzymes for your gut health, and a...
