With today being #GMOfreefriday, I wanted to use a product whose company has demonstrated an amazing commitment in the fight for GMO-labeling.

And that company is Nutiva.

Not only is Nutiva a massive supporter of California’s Proposition 37 but they were one of the very first sponsors of our GMO-labeling fundraiser in NYC a few weeks ago, they sponsored last night’s Yes on 37 event in Berkeley, CA, and they also sponsored the showing of the MUST-WATCH movie Genetic Roulette, Jeffrey Smith’s documentary on GMOs, so that the general population could see it for free.

I spent a good amount of time with John Roulac, Nutiva’s founder and CEO, at Natural Products Expo East in Baltimore last month and he is a great, great guy. His unwavering resolve to protect organic is a true inspiration. Read more »

With the last few weeks being very hectic, between traveling to Expo East in Baltimore and then organizing the GMO-labeling fundraiser in NYC, certain things had gotten off track.

With the last few weeks being very hectic, between traveling to Expo East in Baltimore and then organizing the GMO-labeling fundraiser in NYC, certain things had gotten off track.

More specifically, my yoga practice was not as regular as I would have liked and my diet could have been better.

Even though I was still eating all organic, the quality and frequency of my meals were not where they should have been.

Yet, it is precisely in these busy times that we cannot compromise what we put into and how we treat our bodies. Read more »


My Organic Liquid Dinner Last Night

My Organic Liquid Dinner Last Night

To be honest, the amount of juicing I have been doing lately has been pretty inconsistent. The reason for this? I play this game of trying to convince myself that drinking a large quantity of wheatgrass on a daily basis means that I don’t have to juice nearly as much.

Recently, I have been playing around with smoothies using a variety of different superfoods.

Superfoods provide excellent health benefits and many of them are loaded with antioxidants.

This is particularly the case with two of the superfoods that I used this morning to make a Maca Berry Blast smoothie.

Maca comes in powder form and originates from Peru. Thousands of years old, Maca is believed to enhance your energy, stamina, and endurance. Some men claim that it also helps with the libido.

Maqui berry comes in powder form as well and is considered the highest antioxidant berry in the world. It has an ORAC score (which measures antioxidant activity) of 616. Its closest competitor, acai, has an ORAC score of 185, which is 3x less than maqui berry. Read more »


My Breakfast Today: Green Tea Cacao Smoothie

My Breakfast Today: Green Tea Cacao Smoothie

Several days a week, I make smoothies for breakfast. For the base of the smoothies, I often use Brazil nuts or black sesame seeds to make the milk. However, when I am in the mood for something a little lighter, I’ll substitute nuts/seeds with tea. Yes, tea. While I am completely sold on the medicinal […]

Several days a week, I make smoothies for breakfast.

For the base of the smoothies, I often use Brazil nuts or black sesame seeds to make the milk.

However, when I am in the mood for something a little lighter, I’ll substitute nuts/seeds with tea. Yes, tea.

While I am completely sold on the medicinal benefits of tea, I am just not a (hot) tea drinker. So, in order to get the huge amounts of antioxidant benefits of tea, I’ll use it in my smoothies. Read more »


My Organic Green Juice This Morning with Arugula Sprouts

My Organic Green Juice This Morning with Arugula Sprouts

This morning I put the juicer back to work after a few week hiatus. I still have been drinking organic green juice nearly every single day, but I had been buying it. So, wanting to have a large quantity of freshly made juice this morning, I picked up some lacinato kale, celery, and arugula sprouts […]

This morning I put the juicer back to work after a few week hiatus.

I still have been drinking organic green juice nearly every single day, but I had been buying it.

So, wanting to have a large quantity of freshly made juice this morning, I picked up some lacinato kale, celery, and arugula sprouts last night.

Juicing with sprouts is a no-brainer. Why?

The amount of proteins, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes in sprouts is greater than at any other point in a plant’s development.

Therefore, it makes sense to be juicing with foods that give us the biggest return.

For example, broccoli sprouts have 20-50x the amount of sulforaphane, a potent anti-cancer compound, than a mature head of broccoli. Read more »

For a long time, people have been emailing me wanting to know which organic protein powder they should buy.

It took a while but now I finally have an answer.

Boku’s Super Protein is the best certified organic protein powder that I have seen so far.

While I have no issue at all with consuming whey protein (dairy-based), Boku’s Super Protein is different in that it is both raw and vegan.

And when you start to look closely at the ingredient list in this protein powder, you can immediately tell that a great amount of care and thought went into the formulation.

Let’s talk about a few of the ingredients: Read more »
