At this year’s US Open tennis tournament in New York City, Stonyfield had its Stonyfield Cafe outside center court where they served organic and natural food. This was the first time that I can ever remember organic food being served at a major sporting event, and I hope this becomes a regular occurrence.

At the tournament, I caught up with Stonyfield’s President and CE-Yo, Gary Hirshberg, where we talked about the the success of the Stonyfield Cafe and its future plans.

A side note: When I started livingmaxwell about ten months ago, one of my goals was to interview Gary Hirshberg. So, making this happen was a big thrill.

Not only was Gary was featured in the movie Food, Inc. but he is one of the most influential figures in the organic food movement in our country. Aside from his tremendous commitment to organic and the environment, Gary believes that business is the most powerful tool to change the world — something that I agree with 100%.

Also, many thanks to Gary’s wife, Meg Hirshberg (a fellow Brown University alum), who did a great job shooting this segment.

In this video, I review The GoodOnYa Bar’s Breakfast Bar.

A few main reasons why I like this bar.

– It is real food and tastes like real food.  It doesn’t taste like a highly processed bar.

– Contains Brazil nuts, my favorite kind of nuts.

– Sweetened with maple syrup – this is pretty rare.

– About 64% raw.

I interviewed the founder of The GoodOnYa Bar, Kris Fillat, earlier this year and she gave me a great explanation about the safety of eating peanuts. The bar was also included in my Best of Show from the 2010 Expo West Trade Show.

The Breakfast Bars are primarily sold in Southern California but can be purchased online HERE.

Here is my very first video restaurant review.  On this trip, I crossed the bridge (actually I took the subway, which goes underneath the water) over to Brooklyn to check out Rockin’ Raw.

As the name explains, Rockin’ Raw is a raw food restaurant with a very distinct twist to it. The cuisine is a combination of New Orleans/Peruvian/Creole all wrapped into one.

A lot of times you go to raw food restaurants and you see many of the same dishes.  Not here. There were items on the menu that I had never seen before and probably won’t again.

Key highlights:

– Unique, interesting dishes.  Many items were brand new to me and I’ve eaten at my fair share of raw food restaurants all over the country.

– Very spicy. If you like hot, this is your place.

– Excellent service. The waiter even played cameraman for me in the opening shot on the street. Read more »

In this video product review, I highlight Raw Revolution – Cashew & Agave Nectar.

I’ve been eating Raw Revolution bars for a few years and continue to do so. They are simply one of the best bars on the market.

There are several reasons why I keep buying them.

– The taste and quality of Raw Revolution bars are excellent. You can tell that they are made with excellent ingredients.

– Raw Revolution bars are very filling. I always feel satiated after eating one, and it can definitely hold me over until the next meal.

– Lastly, Raw Revolution bars are raw. This means no ingredient was heated above 118 degrees – vitamins, minerals and nutrients remain intact.

If you’re looking for a great tasting and filling bar, try Raw Revolution Cashew & Agave Nectar. It is one of my favorites and can be purchased HERE.

In this video, I review Luna and Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss. It is a vegan ice cream that I discovered at the 2009 Natural Products Expo East and have been eating it ever since.

At the end of the clip, I show a clip from an interview I did last year with one of the founders of the company, Luna Marcus.

While the company has several different flavors, Dark Chocolate is my favorite. It requires a lot of will power for me not to devour the whole container in just one sitting.

All I can say is that Luna and Larry put out a fantastic, fantastic product. What’s your favorite flavor?

I get asked all of the time by people “how do I know that the food that I am eating is organic?”

Well, when we buy food in the supermarket, there is an organic certification process managed by the USDA. Those organic food products have the organic seal.

Yet, what do we do when we go to restaurants?

While there are a very few restaurants that have actually been certified organic (there is one here in NYC called Gustorganics), most of them are not.

In this video, I share with you the one question that I always ask when I go to a new organic restaurant. The answer gives me a good idea about how serious they are about organic.
