Zen Breakfast Blend™ by Mindbody Foods Launches Industry-First, Breakfast Smoothie Pouches

LOS ANGELES – There’s a better way to start your day thanks to the introduction of Zen Breakfast Blend by Mindbody Foods.  Zen is a first-of-a kind vegan nut & seed protein smoothie pouch that’s packed with protein, healthy fats, fiber and GanedenBC30® to help people experience a more balanced and productive day. 

Consumers simply add a pouch with their favorite milk in a blender, which grinds up the fresh seeds and nut in 30 to 60 seconds, for a quick and delicious meal-sized chocolate breakfast smoothie.  Whereas most traditional breakfast offerings are high in carbs and sugar, a prepared Zen Breakfast Blend is mostly protein, fats and fiber with added probiotics to support digestive health, immune health and protein utilization.  It’s vegan, gluten-free and is an excellent source of ALA omega-3 fatty acids and fiber, which few people get enough of in their diet.

Zen Breakfast Blend was developed by William Bond and his wife, Dr. Jennifer Wicher, a Naturopathic Doctor.  “Our decade of running a preventive medicine clinic taught us that eating better is the first step to improving health and preventing health problems.  But it has to be easy, or people won’t do it.” said Mr. Bond, CEO of Mindbody Foods.  “We’ve created a highly functional food that’s perfect for busy people who want easy access to many of the big trends in healthy eating – plant based proteins, healthy fats, fiber and a probiotic, all in one.”


Healthcare spending on diet-preventable diseases is reaching crisis proportions, and there’s a growing consensus that consumers need to cut back on sugar and refined carbohydrates, include more sources of good fats and fiber in their diets, and eat a larger, healthier breakfast.  Mindbody Foods believes that nut and seed breakfast smoothies are an evolutionary part of the solution.

Zen Breakfast Blend is available in two flavors (cherry-almond and blueberry-walnut) and sells online as 5-packs for $24 at ZenBreakfastBlend.com and on Amazon.  “Online has given us time to get amazing customer feedback and to prepare to move into retail.” said William. “We just launched into our first natural foods retailer last week and we think that Zen Breakfast Blend has tremendous potential in the breakfast aisle, and as a prepared smoothie at coffee shops and juice bars – really anywhere there’s a blender.”
