As I am getting older, I find myself spending less and less time with my close friends. We are all very busy with work and family obligations, and many of us live in different cities.

Last night, it was fantastic to catch up with one of my best friends, David Lee, who was visiting NYC from San Francisco. He and I only get to see each other about once or twice a year since we live on opposite sides of the country.

We became great friends in high school (where he played like Tony Peña behind home plate), and he has gone on to become a major player in the technology world.

David Lee runs SV Angel, which is the premier angel investment fund in the country. He sees absolutely every single hot deal there is Silicon Valley and every tech entrepreneur is begging him for money. Read more »

I don’t know why it has been so difficult lately but it has taken me several days to find an organic coconut oil that I wanted to buy.

Yesterday, I stumbled across Artisana’s Organic Coconut Oil and immediately picked it up.

The Requirements

There are three main things that I have to see when buying coconut oil.

1) It has to be organic This goes without saying.

2) It has to be in a glass jar As I have written about before, I carry glass water bottles to work and want to use glass, instead of plastic, as much as I can.

I often see several different brands of coconut oil in plastic containers. Regardless of how badly I want or need the coconut oil, I don’t buy it and prefer to wait in order to get something that I am happy with. Read more »

One advantage of spending time in different parts of the country is that I get to discover smaller organic brands that are sold regionally and are not available just yet in New York City.

Having spent the last few days in Denver with my family, I have made multiple trips to the local Whole Foods and one product in particular has made a big impression on me — the Nutty Nori Chips by a company called Food on Purpose.

I have eaten a similar type of nori chip in the past but these are absolutely fantastic. Read more »

As I have written about many times before, I am a big fan of palm sugar. This alternative sweetener is sustainable, low on the Glycemic Index and tastes great.

Palm sugar was also named one of my Top 5 Organic Food Trends for 2011.

When I was in the supermarket the other day and scouring the shelves looking for something new, I stumbled across PalmSweet by Organic Nectars.

I immediately said to myself “Wow, this is really interesting.”

At closer glance, I realized that PalmSweet is nothing more than palm sugar but in powder form.

While it may seem like a simple and obvious idea, the company claims that PalmSweet is the very first powdered coconut palm sugar and I believe them. I have yet to run across this product before. Read more »
