I’ve been fortunate to do many amazing things and meet a ton of inspirational people in 2014.

Yet, if I had to pick my highlight of the year, it is probably the article that I just wrote in Mantra: Yoga+Health magazine.

When the magazine first hit the stands, I vividly remember being hunched over in the aisle at Whole Foods Market in NYC’s Union Square, absorbing every single word. What I felt after reading these few pages touched me in a way that nothing else had in a long, long time.

To be honest, my reaction really took me by surprise and I never imagined that I would be so overcome with emotion. Why was I so moved by this article?

I write blog posts all of the time that get shared throughout the world on the Internet. Additionally, I also have been lucky enough to have been profiled in The New York Times, CNN, Fox News, Bloomberg and many others major media outlets.

So, what was so special about this one? Read More »

On the final night of the Seed Food & Wine Festival in Miami, I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend the While Lotus Dinner Experience with Matthew Kenney.

Renowned chef Matthew Kenney, who co-founded Pure Food & Wine in New York City and now has sprawling plant-based empire throughout the world, flew into town and prepared a delicious four-course meal. This served as a preview for his Miami-based raw food restaurant White Lotus, which is expected to open in 2015. Read More »

My Top 10 Organic Food Products from the Seed Food & Wine Festival in Miami

Written by Max Goldberg on October 22, 2014. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

After Natural Products Expo West, Natural Products Expo East, and Fancy Food Show, I always name my Top 5 Organic Food Products for each trade show.

Having just gotten back from the phenomenal Seed Food & Wine Festival in Miami, the country’s first plant-based food and wine festival, I was considering doing the same but in some ways it felt a little strange to do so.

The Seed Food & Wine Festival was not a trade show but was an event open to the general public. Furthermore, this festival felt more like a celebration rather than a critical showcase to impress buyers from retail chains across the country. Read More »

The Interesting Things That I Discovered at Green Festival NYC 2014

This past weekend I was at Green Festival NYC and had a fantastic time.

While these shows are not nearly as big as a Natural Products Expo West or Natural Products Expo East, they have definitely been gaining traction over the last few years.

More and more nationally-known organic brands are purchasing booths, and the overall number of booths is expanding as well.

What I particularly like about these shows is that they are geared toward the consumer and showcase a wide variety of eco-friendly products. Furthermore, they have fantastic seminars with some very interesting speakers. Read More »
