(This is a sponsored post from my partners at Intellipure. I have been using the company’s air filtration machines for well over a decade — many years before I started Living Maxwell.)

After having eaten close to 100% organic since 2001, I have come to realize one thing — food is only one part of the equation.

While I maintain that it is still a very important piece of the puzzle, it is certainly not the only one when it comes to good health. I would put your emotional well-being, the quality of water that you drink, the EMFs that you are exposed to and the air that you breathe all in the same conversation when it comes to optimizing personal wellness.

Yet, arguably, clean air may be the most important thing to address when it comes to your health. Why? Read more »

Whenever I go to a market in NYC these days and check out the refrigerated section, I am constantly amazed by the inordinate amount of shelf space that REBBL occupies.

But it’s for very good reason.

Under the brilliant leadership of CEO Sheryl O’Loughlin, REBBL has become the hottest brand in the beverage world, and people have become obsessed with the company’s adaptogenic coconut milk drinks.

While the company is well on its way to becoming a household name, what is barely known is just how mission-driven REBBL is and that 2.5% of all sales go to Not for Sale, an organization which aims to end modern slavery and exploitation around the world.

Yet, what makes REBBL truly stand apart is that the business was created and imagined with the primary goal of having a positive social impact. Read more »

Whether you’re flying for business or pleasure, the truth is that traveling is not the healthiest activity.

Aside from the stress that traveling puts on your body and the unpredictability of healthy food available to you when on the road, getting on an airplane is a very toxic activity, largely because the cabin air is so contaminated.

This is why it is absolutely critical that you are prepared in advance.

Last April, I was in Denver attending the National Organic Standards Board meeting and went to dinner one night at True Food Kitchen.

Sitting at a community table, I struck up a conversation with a woman across from me and she proceeded to tell me that she had recently switched to a vegan diet.

“So, do you know Dr. Joel Kahn? The cardiologist from Detroit,” I asked.

Given that the plant-based world is a tight community and that Dr. Kahn is a social media star, I had a feeling that she might have known him.

“Do I know Dr. Kahn?” she responded with her face completely lit up. “He’s the reason I am a vegan today! Everything he talks about online and in his books convinced me to go plant-based!”

With the release of his excellent new book The Plant-Based Solution, Dr. Joel Kahn is looking to make a similar impact on many more people.

I recently caught up with my friend, and here is what he had to say.

Numerous cardiologists that I have come into contact with lately are vegans, yet many prominent functional medicine doctors that I know do not advocate for a plant-based diet. They think eating meat is important. In your opinion, what are these doctors not understanding?

The functional medicine world is often stuck in the concept that a plant-diet is nutritionally deficient even though the USDA, AND, and other organizations say otherwise. Read more »

For most of us in the organic food industry, our journey into the world of healthy living began sometime in our 20s, 30s or 40s.

But for a handful of very aware and socially responsible kids, their start came at a much younger age.

At 11 years old, Toronto’s Rachel Parent first learned about the risks of GMOs and soon launched the very influential Kids Right to Know. Her TV debate about GMO-Golden Rice with Shark Tank star Kevin O’Leary garnered more than 2 million views, and she was named to Canada’s Top 20 Under 20 Change Makers by the National Post, among many other things.

At the age of 9, years old, Tennessee’s Birke Baehr began studying sustainable and organic farming practices. Two years later, his TEDx talk called “What’s Wrong with Our Food System” garnered more than 2 million views and acclaim from across the globe.

While Texas-based Nina Warda has not achieved that level of success just yet, she is one to definitely keep an eye on, as this teenager has tremendous determination, drive and discipline. Read more »

The absolute first thing to look for is a certified organic snack bar — one that has the green and white USDA organic seal on it. Read more »
