EDITOR’S LETTER

 

Welcome to bonberi, a curated guide devoted to food, fitness and well-being. We have tirelessly scoured the globe for the best juice bars, healthy restaurants, fitness experts and more to provide a comprehensive look into the world of wellness. Looking for the freshest green juice? We’ve found it. Have you been intrigued by the word “colonic” but are too afraid to ask? We’ve broken down all the fear factors with a cleansing guru.Whether you are a card-carrying member of the raw food movement or you are simply interested in feeling more fit, bonberi has something for you. On the site, we have included seven sections covering all the facets of what “living healthy” truly means. In Life, we interview friends and tastemakers who “live the life” towards alkalinity and rejuvenation; in Wander we trawl various neighborhoods for the best juice bars, spas and more. In our Nourish section, we include notable chefs who have your health in mind as well as features debunking mainstream nutrition myths. In our Move column we uncover the hottest workouts. In Zen, we help you link the mind body connection and have you outfitted for it all in Style.

As we continue to grow, we look forward to having you embark on this journey with us to a happier, healthier lifestyle.

With Love,
Vanessa Packer and Nicole Berrie
Founders, bonberi
