Just the other day, Michael Pollan, arguably the most well-known food writer in the country, debuted his new film In Defense of Food.

And when I asked a handful of other people if they had seen it, the immediate response I got was “I’ve read the book”, implying that there was no need to watch this movie.

While it is true that many, many of us have read the book, this film is definitely worth seeing. Here is why. Read more »

Green Bar & Kitchen in Fort Lauderdale, Florida is a Winner

  For a few years now, I had been hearing non-stop about Green Bar & Kitchen, an organic plant-based restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Some of my friends in Miami insisted that Green Bar & Kitchen made the best veggie burger that they had ever eaten. Others were simply shocked that I hadn’t been there yet. Even […]

For a few years now, I had been hearing non-stop about Green Bar & Kitchen, an organic plant-based restaurant in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Some of my friends in Miami insisted that Green Bar & Kitchen made the best veggie burger that they had ever eaten. Others were simply shocked that I hadn’t been there yet.

Even though I have been in Miami a good number of times over the past few years, for some reason I just had never made the 30 minute drive north to check this place out.

Until recently, that is. Read more »


A Fantastic Evening at Exhibit C in NYC with Mind Travel

A Fantastic Evening at Exhibit C in NYC with Mind Travel

Last week, I attended my first event at the newly-opened Exhibit C, the brainchild of acclaimed vegan chef Daphne Cheng. Located in New York City’s Lower East Side, Exhibit C is not a restaurant nor is it your standard event space. To be honest, I had trouble wrapping my arms around exactly what this place was until […]

Last week, I attended my first event at the newly-opened Exhibit C, the brainchild of acclaimed vegan chef Daphne Cheng.

Located in New York City’s Lower East Side, Exhibit C is not a restaurant nor is it your standard event space. To be honest, I had trouble wrapping my arms around exactly what this place was until I experienced it first-hand.

On her website, Daphne Cheng describes it as: a food-as-art gallery, a kitchen classroom, a recipe laboratory, a culinary incubator, a never-ending celebration of food. Read more »

LuliTonix has Been Rolling Out Some Fantastic Drinks Lately

Last year, I said that LuliTonix, a NYC-based blended juice and elixir company, was one of two emerging organic beverage brands to watch. And given what I have witnessed since then, I definitely believe that this was the right call. LuliTonix is putting out some very innovative products, embracing powerful ingredients that are rarely used in beverages, such as […]

Last year, I said that LuliTonix, a NYC-based blended juice and elixir company, was one of two emerging organic beverage brands to watch.

And given what I have witnessed since then, I definitely believe that this was the right call.

LuliTonix is putting out some very innovative products, embracing powerful ingredients that are rarely used in beverages, such as amla, broccoli microgreens, and moringa.

Even though the company does ship nationwide, LuliTonix is not widely known — just yet — outside of the NYC area and Manhattan wellness community. So, I thought I’d give you a look at some of its newer flavors.

(SEE BELOW FOR MY INTERVIEW WITH THE FILMMAKERS.) With the DARK Act heating up and the disastrous TPP close to approval, we are not far from the point where the government will allow uncontrolled contamination of organic farms from GMOs and mass exposure to super-toxic pesticides, not to mention GMO-labeling being declared illegal.

(SEE BELOW FOR MY INTERVIEW WITH THE FILMMAKERS.)

With the DARK Act heating up and the disastrous TPP close to approval, we are not far from the point where the government will allow uncontrolled contamination of organic farms from GMOs and mass exposure to super-toxic pesticides, not to mention GMO-labeling being declared illegal.

This means that our only remaining option to fight back and protect ourselves is for individual citizens to come together en masse to reject the propaganda of Monsanto, Dow, and the Grocery Manufacturers Association, and embrace organic.

But how do we accomplish this? Read more »
