Last week in Organic Insider, I broke the story about how CEO Sheryl O’Loughlin, who had been leading the company for the past four years, was stepping down from her position.

Sheryl and her team approached me to write this piece, and a day after the story was released, I was able to get Sheryl on The Living Maxwell Podcast to discuss this more.

In our wide-ranging conversation, we talked about why she left REBBL, how the company was started, REBBL’s Brazil nut project in Latin America, her long-time interest in human rights, and how she overcame some serious personal struggles. Read more »

The Living Maxwell Podcast, Episode #1 - Liana Werner-Gray, Best-Selling Author, on Persevering Through Advers

In the very first episode of The Living Maxwell Podcast, I interview Liana Werner-Gray, #1 best-selling author of three books (The Earth Diet, 10-Minute Recipes and Cancer-Free with Food) and a very in-demand nutrition coach.

As with many people who find their way into the wellness world, Liana was faced with a very, very serious health condition at a young age and made the incredibly courageous decision to deal with it in a natural and holistic way — against the wishes of conventional doctors.

But what I found to be even more inspirational about Liana is how she dealt with a tragic family event at age 17, which would have scarred most people for a lifetime. Instead, this tragedy helped shape Liana and gave her the strength to become the person she is today.

In this episode of the Living Maxwell podcast, Liana Werner-Gray shares this story for the very first time, and to this day, I am so inspired by (and in awe of) how she handled this situation. Read more »

David Bronner, the Cosmic Engagement Officer (CEO) of Dr. Bronner’s, saw this coming years ago.

With California having legalized cannabis in 2016, he knew that this plant was headed down the path of other agricultural crops — mass industrialization, genetic engineering, enormous energy consumption through fossil fuels, and the displacement of small-scale family farmers.

Where cannabis differs from other agricultural commodities, however, is that there can be no such thing as “organic cannabis” until the federal government stops classifying it as an illegal drug. Read more »

One of the unfortunate and uncomfortable realities of buying organic food is having to deal with its excessive packaging waste.

This is not a problem easily solved, but one company eager for a solution is Nature’s Path, the leading North American organic cereal brand. This organic pioneer has just become a founding partner in Loop, a new global shipping platform aimed at eliminating waste by disrupting the world’s reliance on single-use packaging. Read more »

(The Impossible Burger from Impossible Foods)

As Beyond Meat’s very successful IPO is bringing a lot of attention to the alt-protein category, it is important to take a look at what exactly are in these food products.

One popular name in this space is the Impossible Burger, a product we first wrote about in 2017 when Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents uncovered that the FDA disagreed with the company’s safety assessments of the burger’s main ingredient — soy leghemoglobin. However, the company continued selling it to the public anyhow without informing consumers about the FDA’s very serious concerns.

The issue this time around with the Impossible Burger is the amount of glyphosate that it contains. Read more »

Having recently returned from Natural Products Expo West, a very intense and long five days visiting hundreds of trade show booths and meeting with dozens and dozens of people, one thing is very clear — I felt incredibly fortunate to have stayed in a Pure Room.

Launched by a company called Pure Wellness, a Pure Room is an extremely unique hotel offering that is addressing the needs of wellness-minded travelers in a way that I have never seen before. For people who place a serious priority on health, such as myself and many Living Maxwell readers, it is reassuring to know that this lifestyle can be maintained when on the road.

And now that I have stayed in a Pure Room on three separate occasions — most recently at two different hotels in the Los Angeles area for Natural Products Expo West — these hotel rooms have completely changed the way that I think about travel and how I book my accommodations. Read more »
