When Green Bar & Kitchen Owner Elena Pezzo's brother Anthony suffered a stroke and coma, doctors told the family to "pull the plug." Yet Pezzo, a nutritionist, refused to give in and fed her brother superfoods like Omega 3 fish oil intravenously. Slowly but surely, he began to improve, talking and even beginning to walk again. The experience transformed Pezzo, who moved to South Florida in 2010. She and her life partner Charles Grippo opened the Zenergy truck and began rolling around town serving up green shakes and plant-based snacks infused with superfoods. They quickly developed a following and in early 2013 opened Green Bar & Kitchen in Fort Lauderdale. Green Bar serves such fresh, filling food that even a meat-obsessed man could eat it and be satisfied.
