In terms of organic food, there is a lot to be grateful for this Thanksgiving.

While every single participant in the organic food industry plays a critical role, I’d like to single out these three groups this year and express my sincere gratitude.

Organic Farmers Is there anyone more important to the industry than organic farmers?

These are the individuals who work brutally long hours, face the high costs and burdensome paperwork for USDA organic certification, and deal with unpredictable weather conditions, all to bring us the most nutritious food available. Read more »

Living with Intention

Living with Intention

A few months ago, I went to a fantastic David Wolfe lecture here in New York City at Organic Avenue. Aside from the wealth of food and herbal medicine-related information that he shared with us, I was particularly struck by something else that he touched on.

A few months ago, I went to a fantastic David Wolfe lecture here in New York City at Organic Avenue.

Aside from the wealth of food and herbal medicine-related information that he shared with us, I was particularly struck by something else that he touched on.

David Wolfe spoke about living with intention and always checking back in with your intentions. This was the most compelling part of the entire lecture and has had a huge impact on me to this very day.

This whole concept of intentions was not new by any means but hearing it again was a very powerful reminder.

Despite the fact that organic food is and will continue to be the focus of my blog, there are other essential elements to living well that I strongly believe need to be discussed.

One of these elements, and maybe the most important one, has to do with our thoughts.

You can eat a 100% organic diet but if your thoughts are polluted or negative, how healthy can you really be? I would say not healthy at all. Read more »

How I View Food

How I View Food

Yesterday, a journalist was interviewing me and wanted to know about my eating habits. When I proceeded to tell her all of the organic food that I keep in my fridge and that I put into my body each day, she then asked the question “What are your guilty pleasures?” Maybe I am an anomaly […]

Yesterday, a journalist was interviewing me and wanted to know about my eating habits.

When I proceeded to tell her all of the organic food that I keep in my fridge and that I put into my body each day, she then asked the question “What are your guilty pleasures?”

Maybe I am an anomaly but I don’t have any guilty pleasures. I simply do not view that way. Read more »


My Morning Meditation and Visualization

My Morning Meditation and Visualization

I learned how to meditate in college when I took a Transcendental Meditation class and have maintained a very serious practice over the past 11 years. For some reason, I don’t remember doing it that consistently in the 90s. Most likely, it was the hard-partying lifestyle that got in the way. Anyhow, my meditation practice […]

I learned how to meditate in college when I took a Transcendental Meditation class and have maintained a very serious practice over the past 11 years.

For some reason, I don’t remember doing it that consistently in the 90s. Most likely, it was the hard-partying lifestyle that got in the way.

Anyhow, my meditation practice is something that I cannot live without. It calms me down, centers me and gets me more focused. Nothing makes me more relaxed or present.

So, when I get up in the morning I sit and meditate for 20 minutes. The meditation is Transcendental Meditation, which uses a mantra as a way to keep the mind from wandering.

And after I finish meditating, I do something called Creating My Day. Read more »

If you don’t know who Dr. Alejandro Junger is, remember his name. His star is on the rise, and he is making his way to becoming a household name similar to Dr. Andrew Weil.

Dr. Alejandro Junger (above) is a NYC-based cardiologist whose New York Times  best-selling book and detox program are both called CLEAN. With endorsements from Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore, Donna Karan and many others, CLEAN is gaining some serious traction.

Aside from the fact that I hear so many success stories about CLEAN, I am convinced that this program will grow for another reason. Read more »
