Last night, I was at Whole Foods Tribeca in NYC where renowned nutritionist Joel Fuhrman, M.D., author of the bestselling Eat to Live and host of the PBS show 3 Steps to Incredible Health, gave a lecture and also announced a new partnership with the Whole Foods Wellness Clubs.

Here’s a synopsis on both.

PARTNERSHIP WITH WHOLE FOODS

As I wrote about recently, Whole Foods launched a pilot program of five Wellness Clubs around the country.

This new partnership with Dr. Joel Fuhrman means that one his associates, Adam Fiterstein, M.D., will be onsite at the Whole Foods Tribeca Wellness Club on Mondays to give private consultations to members and to host lectures for both members and non-members alike.

The consultations include: Read more »

If you are a parent or someone who is very concerned about the food that you put into your body, this is a webinar that you absolutely don’t want to miss.

On Thursday at 2PM EST, I am hosting a FREE webinar with my friend Robyn O’Brien, one of the country’s leading food safety advocates and author of the acclaimed book THE UNHEALTHY TRUTH: ONE MOTHER’S SHOCKING INVESTIGATION INTO THE DANGERS OF AMERICA’S FOOD SUPPLY – AND WHAT EVERY FAMILY CAN DO TO PROTECT ITSELF.

If you haven’t read the book, absolutely do so. Why?

Because you will be absolutely shocked as to what is going on with our food supply and what our government is not doing to protect us. I was blown away by some of things that I learned in her book.

A former Wall Street research analyst, Robyn O’Brien says she was the most unlikely food crusader but when one of her children suffered a violent allergy attack, everything changed. Read more »

How Did I Celebrate Food Day? I Watched the Fantastic "What's on Your Plate?" Documentary in NYC

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 »

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. […]

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 »

For some people, Hurricane Irene has come and gone and we are back to living our normal lives.

Yet, for many organic farmers in the Northeast, the storm has been devastating.

The organic farmers hardest hit have been in Eastern New York, Southern Vermont, Western Massachusetts, Western Connecticut and Northern New Jersey.

THE DAMAGE

Along with losing their electricity, many farmers have had their properties completely flooded, which is a disaster for two reasons.

One, they have lost everything that is in the ground now. Read more »

Between ticket sales and donations, we raised just under $2,000 for The Center for Food Safety this past weekend at a screening of the movie Farmageddon in Nantucket.

For those who were not on the island, it was an absolutely gorgeous day and pulling people off of the beach to attend a 4PM showing was not the easiest thing to do.

Nevertheless, it was a great and very engaged crowd.

After the movie, Kristin Canty (above), the filmmaker, and I did a Q/A. Below is a recap of some of the major things that were discussed.

Q: What has happened since the movie was released a few months ago? Read more »
