The absolute number one priority in your household should be organic milk for your kids.

Even if a family thinks that organic food is out of their budget, organic milk cannot be compromised under any condition.

Organic milk is about the health of the kids, and that comes before everything else.

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 »

While I promote organic food as much as I can and want to help the industry prosper, I also feel a need to educate and inform my readers.

Without question, organic food is the healthiest food that exists and is something that I believe can feed the planet. However, sometimes the packaging of organic food products is not always the best.

I have talked a lot in the past about my aversion to plastic bottles. Aside from the fact that they are horrible for the environment, they are also hormone (endocrine) disruptors.

When I spoke with David Wolfe, the most famous person in the raw food world, he shared a similar opinion regarding plastic. Read more »

Unhealthy Truth

If you are a parent or you know someone who is parent, 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 by Robyn O’Brien is a book that should be required reading.

As a Wall Street research analyst and mother of 4, Robyn O’Brien was a very unlikely candidate to become one of the country’s leading food safety advocates. But all of that changed when her youngest daughter had a severe violent reaction to the eggs that she had eaten.

From that day forward, Robyn O’Brien took it upon herself to learn about what was truly going on with our food. Needless to say, what she discovered was very, very unsettling. Read more »

Recently, I was in Boston for a meeting and the person I was there to see had this healthy snack in his office, 100% organic crunch-dried sweet corn by Sensible Foods.

Having never seen this product before, I was lucky that he offered me a bag so I could try it out. And what an incredibly pleasant surprise it was.

I know that it is not good to eat fast and that I need to slow down, but it took me less than a minute to devour this bag. As a huge fan of corn, popcorn especially, I couldn’t put it down.

I imagine this being a fantastic snack for kids because not only does it have the health benefits but it tastes so, so good.  It is crunchy, sweet, filling and delicious. Read more »
