I just got back from the Seed Festival in Miami, the country’s first conscious, plant-based food and wine festival, and had an amazing few days.

This was the second year of the event, and I was so impressed by the number of attendees and quality of vendors. In my view, it is only a matter of time before the Seed Festival becomes a must-attend event for all plant-based companies in the organic industry, and Whole Foods Market again served as the main sponsor.

A Fantastic Evening at Exhibit C in NYC with Mind Travel

Last week, I attended my first event at the newly-opened Exhibit C, the brainchild of acclaimed vegan chef Daphne Cheng. Located in New York City’s Lower East Side, Exhibit C is not a restaurant nor is it your standard event space. To be honest, I had trouble wrapping my arms around exactly what this place was until […]

Last week, I attended my first event at the newly-opened Exhibit C, the brainchild of acclaimed vegan chef Daphne Cheng.

Located in New York City’s Lower East Side, Exhibit C is not a restaurant nor is it your standard event space. To be honest, I had trouble wrapping my arms around exactly what this place was until I experienced it first-hand.

On her website, Daphne Cheng describes it as: a food-as-art gallery, a kitchen classroom, a recipe laboratory, a culinary incubator, a never-ending celebration of food. Read more »


Seasoned Vegan in Harlem is a Gem in the NYC Organic Restaurant Scene

Seasoned Vegan in Harlem is a Gem in the NYC Organic Restaurant Scene

My belief that I had a pretty good pulse on the organic restaurant scene in NYC was called into serious question when I recently got an email from a reader, Joyce from Connecticut. She told me about this place in Harlem called Seasoned Vegan, and apparently, it has been open for close to a year already. […]

On the third Friday of every month, I have a column called Eco-Friendly Fridays. I started this column because I run across so many amazing organic, non-food items that I believe people ought to know about. While organic food is certainly a major component of living an organic lifestyle, it is not the only part.

When it comes to organic clothing, Marci Zaroff, the founder and president of Under the Canopy, is truly a pioneer. And I don’t say this lightly. Read more »

MASHING UP MIAMI

jugofresh-side

A few months ago, JugoFresh, a pressed organic juice company with several retail locations in South Florida, opened up a “store within a store” at the new Whole Foods Market in downtown Miami.

This is quite unusual because JugoFresh is one of the very, very few external vendors to have such an arrangement, out of the hundreds of Whole Foods Market stores worldwide. (All items are paid for at the JugoFresh counter, instead of the regular Whole Foods Market checkout line.) Read more »

I’ve been fortunate to do many amazing things and meet a ton of inspirational people in 2014.

Yet, if I had to pick my highlight of the year, it is probably the article that I just wrote in Mantra: Yoga+Health magazine.

When the magazine first hit the stands, I vividly remember being hunched over in the aisle at Whole Foods Market in NYC’s Union Square, absorbing every single word. What I felt after reading these few pages touched me in a way that nothing else had in a long, long time.

To be honest, my reaction really took me by surprise and I never imagined that I would be so overcome with emotion. Why was I so moved by this article?

I write blog posts all of the time that get shared throughout the world on the Internet. Additionally, I also have been lucky enough to have been profiled in The New York Times, CNN, Fox News, Bloomberg and many others major media outlets.

So, what was so special about this one? Read more »
