I'm a Big Fan of Lunaberry Swirl, One of the Newest Flavors by Luna and Larry's Organic Coconut Bliss

Luna and Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss is one of the most beloved brands in the organic world. Consumers absolutely rave about their ice cream. And for good reason.

Luna and Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss is one of the most beloved brands in the organic world. Consumers absolutely rave about their ice cream.

And for good reason.

Aside from the fact that people love ice cream in general, Luna and Larry’s delivers amazing tasting products, all of which use coconut milk as the base.

Needless to say, I have been eagerly anticipating Luna and Larry’s newest flavors but distribution problems caused delays in getting the products to the East Coast.

Finally, they arrived and I have been devouring Lunaberry Swirl ever since. Read more »


Farmageddon: A Food Documentary That Should Serve as a Wake-Up Call to All Americans

Farmageddon: A Food Documentary That Should Serve as a Wake-Up Call to All Americans

Last night, I went to go see the documentary Farmageddon, a movie that I had been hearing about for the last few months. Farmageddon highlights the USDA’s brutal crackdown on farmers selling raw milk and how the agency’s heavy-handed, corrupt and politically-motivated ways have destroyed the lives of small, organic farmers trying to do the […]

Last night, I went to go see the documentary Farmageddon, a movie that I had been hearing about for the last few months.

Farmageddon highlights the USDA’s brutal crackdown on farmers selling raw milk and how the agency’s heavy-handed, corrupt and politically-motivated ways have destroyed the lives of small, organic farmers trying to do the right thing.

The objective of the movie is not to promote raw milk, however. The objective of the movie is to get people to wake up and to start demanding change. Read more »

U.S. House of Representatives Passes Amendment to Prohibit Approval of Genetically-Engineered Salmon

Very quietly last week, we got some positive news on the genetically-engineered (GE) salmon front. The U.S. House of Representatives passed an amendment that prohibits the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from using any of its FY2012 funding to approve GE-salmon. The amendment, which was put forth by Reps. Don Young (R-AK) and Lynn Woolsey […]

Very quietly last week, we got some positive news on the genetically-engineered (GE) salmon front.

The U.S. House of Representatives passed an amendment that prohibits the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from using any of its FY2012 funding to approve GE-salmon.

The amendment, which was put forth by Reps. Don Young (R-AK) and Lynn Woolsey (D-CA), is part of the appropriations bill entitled The Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (H.R. 2112). It passed by a 217-203 vote.

As it stands now, the FDA, instead of the USDA, has the legal power to approve all genetically-engineered animals through its new animal drug law. Yet, industry experts have a real problem with the way that the FDA handles the approval process. Read more »

Recently, I have been eating quite a bit at Souen, a fantastic macrobiotic and organic restaurant in NYC, and one of my favorite things to order is the Macro Plate.

Recently, I have been eating quite a bit at Souen, a fantastic macrobiotic and organic restaurant in NYC, and one of my favorite things to order is the Macro Plate.

The Macro Plate is rice, beans, steamed vegetables and sea vegetables with carrot-ginger dressing, but I like to substitute the rice with soba noodles. Seeing as how I have become such a fan of soba noodles as of late, I thought that I would start making them at home.

Easier Said Than Done

In my search for soba noodles at my local organic market, it was very difficult to find organic soba noodles that did not contain wheat. Most contained whole wheat and buckwheat. I wanted buckwheat soba noodles with nothing else added. Read more »

Brooklyn Flea, which hosts some of the most popular flea markets in the city, recently expanded its offerings. The latest offshoot is called Smorgasburg, billed as a food market that “brings together New York State Greenmarket farmers and top New York City purveyors and chefs on the spectacular Williamsburg waterfront every Saturday.”

Many of these vendors were local food artisans but what interested me, of course, were the organic booths. Needless to say, the skyline of Manhattan and the gorgeous weather made for a spectacular afternoon at Smorgasburg.

These were the organic food vendors that I saw. Read more »
