On the final night of the Seed Food & Wine Festival in Miami, I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend the While Lotus Dinner Experience with Matthew Kenney.

Renowned chef Matthew Kenney, who co-founded Pure Food & Wine in New York City and now has sprawling plant-based empire throughout the world, flew into town and prepared a delicious four-course meal. This served as a preview for his Miami-based raw food restaurant White Lotus, which is expected to open in 2015. Read more »

After Natural Products Expo West, Natural Products Expo East, and Fancy Food Show, I always name my Top 5 Organic Food Products for each trade show.

Having just gotten back from the phenomenal Seed Food & Wine Festival in Miami, the country’s first plant-based food and wine festival, I was considering doing the same but in some ways it felt a little strange to do so.

The Seed Food & Wine Festival was not a trade show but was an event open to the general public. Furthermore, this festival felt more like a celebration rather than a critical showcase to impress buyers from retail chains across the country. Read more »

Cocobeet is a MUST-VISIT Organic Juice Bar in Boston

As a result of living in NYC but having grown up in Boston, I am quite aware of the difference between the two cities, in terms of the organic food and pressed juice offerings. NYC has a ton and Boston has very little. But with the recent opening of Cocobeet, ironically located between a Subway and Dunkin’ […]

As a result of living in NYC but having grown up in Boston, I am quite aware of the difference between the two cities, in terms of the organic food and pressed juice offerings.

NYC has a ton and Boston has very little.

But with the recent opening of Cocobeet, ironically located between a Subway and Dunkin’ Donuts, it is an understatement to say that Bostonians are thrilled to have them there.

“On our second day of business, we sold 270 bottles of juice and had to close our doors because there was nothing left to sell,” Co-Founder Onur Ozkoc told me. Read more »

Two of My Favorite Emerging Beverage Brands – Rawpothecary and LuliTonix

Two of My Favorite Emerging Beverage Brands - Rawpothecary and LuliTonix

Unless you live in the New York area and are immersed in the health and wellness world, there is a decent chance that you’ve never heard of Rawpothecary or LuliTonix. But that won’t be the case for long, as I expect both of these brands to become very recognizable, national players within a matter of time. Having closely […]

Unless you live in the New York area and are immersed in the health and wellness world, there is a decent chance that you’ve never heard of Rawpothecary or LuliTonix.

But that won’t be the case for long, as I expect both of these brands to become very recognizable, national players within a matter of time.

Having closely watched Rawpothecary and LuliTonix over the past year, I not only love what they’re putting on the shelves, but the women behind each of these NYC-based companies are two of the hardest-working entrepreneurs I’ve come across.

RAWPOTHECARY

A few years ago, founder Stephanie Walczak had a close friend that was poisoned so badly from pesticides that he was literally on his death bed.  With conventional medicine completely failing him and few alternatives left, Stephanie, a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and The Natural Gourmet Institute, got into the kitchen and worked her magic with the Vitamix, making sure he got fed super-nutritious blended drinks.

For me, there is no better way to start the day than to flood my body with tons of nutrients, enzymes, and minerals from a freshly-made organic green juice. And this juice here is my most powerful one, in terms of anti-cancer properties.

As I have explained in the past, even though I do buy pressed organic juice and run a Pressed Organic Juice Directory, there is nothing quite like making juice with your own hands, energy, and love.

Using the fantastic Omega J8006, this morning I made a juice with celery, kale, radishes, and broccoli sprouts.

Here is why I used each ingredient: Read more »
