For those who don’t know, yesterday was Food Day.

Yes, Earth Day but for food — Food Day.

As I wrote about the other day, Food Day hasn’t been around for three decades but this year made a huge comeback. Given the renewed interest in the importance of our food supply, my guess is that Food Day will become an annual event and is here to stay.

Food Day had over 1,800 events scheduled around the country, and last night I went to go see a screening of the documentary What’s on Your Plate? in Manhattan’s East Village. Read more »


Food Day is Tomorrow – October 24th

Food Day is Tomorrow - October 24th

Ever heard of Food Day?

Neither had I.

Well, it’ll be celebrated around the country tomorrow, October 24th, yet it will not be America’s first Food Day.

That took place nearly 36 years ago but went on a hiatus for over three decades because of a lack of money and energy to keep it going.

Michael Jacobson and The Center for Science in the Public Interest are reviving this event to raise awareness of increasing food prices and world hunger.

But the ultimate goal of Food Day is nothing less than to transform the American diet. Read more »

My Recent Organic Dinner at Josie's in NYC

Last week, I was on the Upper West Side of Manhattan (which doesn’t happen too much since I spend a majority of my time downtown) and went to eat at Josie’s, a great organic restaurant. I like Josie’s a lot since the food is fresh, the service is excellent, and the menu is extensive. Here […]

At my two local organic markets here in NYC, Integral Yoga Natural Foods and Lifethyme Market, in-store demos take place at least a few times per week.

Naturally curious and wanting to learn about new organic products, I always stop by to see what they are selling.

Yet, never have I left the demo tables overly impressed. That is, until the other day.

It only took a few minutes for me to understand why Sei Mee Tea Edible Green is so interesting and so different than the other organic green tea products I have been drinking. Read more »
