Last night, I stayed in to watch LSU-Alabama (I’m a huge college football fan, by the way) and prepared this organic meal to eat while the top two teams in the country went at it. I cooked quinoa, cut up an avocado and a cucumber, and added in some cherry tomatoes. On the right, that […]

Last night, I stayed in to watch LSU-Alabama (I’m a huge college football fan, by the way) and prepared this organic meal to eat while the top two teams in the country went at it.

I cooked quinoa, cut up an avocado and a cucumber, and added in some cherry tomatoes.

On the right, that black looking stuff is kelp. I have been trying to incorporate more sea vegetables into my diet, kelp in particular.

A source of many trace minerals and nutrients, kelp is especially praised for its iodine content, plays an important role in maintaining a healthy thyroid, and helps absorb toxins from the bowel. Read more »

If you’ve been reading the news lately, you know that the Obama administration lost $535 million dollars on a loan to a failed solar panel company, Solyndra. While it is totally inexcusable that we can be wasting money like this, at least the cause – solar energy – was noble. The same cannot be said […]

If you’ve been reading the news lately, you know that the Obama administration lost $535 million dollars on a loan to a failed solar panel company, Solyndra.

While it is totally inexcusable that we can be wasting money like this, at least the cause – solar energy – was noble. The same cannot be said for what the USDA just spent its money on.

The USDA recently announced a $500,000 grant to fund research for the development of genetically-engineered, sterile salmon. Read more »

It is hard enough to get kids, or adults, to eat their greens. Well, multiply those difficulties by 100 and that is how hard it is to get people to eat their sea vegetables. I am guilty of that as well and don’t eat them nearly as much as I should. Sea vegetables, such as […]

It is hard enough to get kids, or adults, to eat their greens.

Well, multiply those difficulties by 100 and that is how hard it is to get people to eat their sea vegetables. I am guilty of that as well and don’t eat them nearly as much as I should.

Sea vegetables, such as kelp, nori, wakame and dulse, are incredibly important for our diet because they are a tremendous sources of minerals, vitamins and nutrients.

Much of the world’s supply of sea vegetables comes from the waters off of Japan and with the recent earthquake there, many people are concerned that they have been tainted with radiation.

As I have written about before, all of the sea vegetables that are currently available in stores or restaurants were harvested last year. Read more »

If you’ve been following my blog over the past few months, you know that the Right2Know March is taking place right now.

I was there for the kick-off, which started on October 1st in NYC and ends this Sunday in Washington, and I’ll be there for the finale as well.

The objective of the Right2Know March is to demand that our government label genetically-modified food.

More than 30 countries around the world label their genetically-modified food because they know that it is inherently different from non-genetically-modified and poses real health risks.

As Americans, we have the right to know what is in our food. Read more »

This past weekend, I was in Syracuse, New York giving a speech at the Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities’ Northeast Regional Conference. My talk, which was filmed and will be on my blog this week, was about my experience with antidepressants and how students have options when it comes to dealing with depression.

As I have come to learn, what we put into our body (organic food, of course, being one of them) has a major, major impact on how we feel.

While in Syracuse, I scouted out the local organic fare and had a fantastic lunch and dinner at The Green Planet Grocery. This organic market had a small raw vegan café that served phenomenal food.

Here is what I had. Read more »
