Reflecting back on 2012, it was truly an amazing year and so much happened that I can hardly believe it.

More than anything, I am beyond grateful for the growing number of people who read what I have to say here. So, I thank each and every one of you for the time you spend on my site and on my social media pages.

In no particular order, here are my Top 5 Organic Food Moments of 2012.

COSTA RICA TRIP

The trip I took to Costa Rica in February was unforgettable. We went to EARTH University, learned how sustainable bananas are produced, saw the incredible work that the Whole Planet Foundation is doing down there, spent time on the coast at Puerto Viejo, and built a biodigester for a local family in need.

It may very well be the best moment since I started livingmaxwell a few years ago. Read more »

On Monday night in New York City at about 8PM EST or so, I was literally ten minutes away from publishing a post about all of the organic food that I bought before Hurricane Sandy’s arrival.

Yet, the electricity went out and the post never went up.

Scroll down to the bottom to see these foods and read about them if you wish. However, this information seems really trivial and unimportant to me right now. Why?

The devastation that this storm has caused to NYC, New Jersey, Long Island and other parts of the East Coast is the only thing on my mind right now. Lives have been lost, homes have been ruined, communities and towns have been completely upended, and countless small businesses are sure to go bankrupt.

Since I was in downtown Manhattan during and after the storm, here is what I experienced. Read more »

Hu Kitchen in NYC is a Total Winner

A brand new restaurant opened up in New York City called Hu Kitchen, and I am HUGE fan.

A brand new restaurant opened up in New York City called Hu Kitchen, and I am HUGE fan.

As Founder/CEO Jordan Brown explains in my interview above, Hu Kitchen represents “food for humans”, and the philosophy is about serving unprocessed, non-GMO food in a way that people have been eating for a long, long time.

Aside from the fact that it is just a short walk from where I live and work in NYC, there are several things that I love about Hu Kitchen.

1) The organic food is fresh and great tasting, and the diverse menu appeals to both vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

2) Hu Kitchen has something very unique and completely innovative called a Mashbar. Read more »

On Monday night in New York City, we had our fundraiser for Proposition 37, California’s GMO-labeling initiative, and it was a phenomenal night.

Approximately 75 people packed GustOrganics and filled the room with THE BEST energy. Individuals came in from South Carolina, North Carolina, Michigan, Connecticut, New Jersey, and upstate New York. Why did they travel so far to attend this event?

Because they know how critical it is that GMO-labeling gets approved in California, and they wanted to show their support and be with other people who care so deeply about this issue. Read more »
