As a result of living in NYC but having grown up in Boston, I am quite aware of the difference between the two cities, in terms of the organic food and pressed juice offerings.

NYC has a ton and Boston has very little.

But with the recent opening of Cocobeet, ironically located between a Subway and Dunkin’ Donuts, it is an understatement to say that Bostonians are thrilled to have them there.

“On our second day of business, we sold 270 bottles of juice and had to close our doors because there was nothing left to sell,” Co-Founder Onur Ozkoc told me. Read More »

The Organic Food and Pressed Juice Scene in Nantucket

Recently, I spent time in Nantucket, an island off of Cape Cod in Massachusetts, and was thrilled to have access to plenty of great organic food and juice.

Below is a recap of Nantucket’s offerings for organic restaurants, pressed organic juice, organic farms, and organic markets.

THE GREEN

As the only organic restaurant on Nantucket, I had lunch at The Green quite a bit. They sell great burritos, bowls, smoothies, juices, and breakfast items. Read More »

Recently, I stopped by the offices of Sakara Life, the fantastic organic meal delivery service based here in NYC.

Even though I have known co-founders Danielle DuBoise and Whitney Tingle for a few years, I hadn’t fully researched their company until now. And what a huge mistake that was because it is an incredibly impressive operation with delicious food.

Currently, Sakara Life is delivering fully-prepared, 100% organic, gluten-free, plant-based meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) to customers in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. The service will eventually be expanded to other parts of the country, with California on the company’s near-term radar screen.

Here were a few things that I tasted. Read More »

The Best Farmers Market in the U.S. is in Miami, Florida

Written by Max Goldberg on January 25, 2014. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

Most people would probably say that choosing the best farmers market in the country would be based on selection, prices, quantity, how much is organic, crowds, and overall experience.

For me, it is much more simple.

Which farmers market will dictate my entire travel schedule just so I can be there for it? Read More »

My Dinner at Choices Cafe in Miami, Florida

If you follow me on Facebook, you know that last week I took a short trip to Miami — I put up a bunch of pictures of the juice that I drank and the food that I ate down there.

What you didn’t see was food from a visit to Choices Cafe, an organic vegan restaurant in downtown Miami, right off of Brickell.

Given that several of my friends in the industry had told me about Choices Cafe and the restaurant has been listed in my Pressed Organic Juice Directory for quite some time, I was eager to go check it out. Read More »

Feel Food in NYC Gets an A+ for Innovation and Taste

Written by Max Goldberg on December 20, 2013. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

If you live in Greenwich Village in NYC, as I do, it is time to come clean. We are completely and utterly spoiled. Why?

Among other reasons, this neighborhood must have the greatest concentration of organic restaurants, supermarkets, and pressed juice bars of anywhere in the world. And with the recent opening of organic restaurant Feel Food, we may now have the most innovative restaurant of them all. Read More »

The Green Radish, a Vegan Organic Food Truck in NYC, is PHENOMENAL

Written by Max Goldberg on November 14, 2013. Follow Max on Twitter: @livingmaxwell.

I know that food trucks are the rage these days but to be perfectly honest, they’ve never really excited me too much.

Maybe that’s because so few of them are organic, and the majority of the ones that line the streets in New York City don’t look appetizing at all.

So, when I heard about a new vegan organic food truck here called The Green Radish, I was a little hesitant.

Yet, what spurred me to go check it out was that owner/operator James Rafferty has some serious credentials. Not only is he a Culinary Institute of America graduate, but he was formerly the sous chef at Bouley, one of the top restaurants in NYC, and has also logged time at other Michelin star restaurants.

Needless to say, I was blown away by the quality of the food at The Green Radish and here are a few dishes that I tried. Read More »
