If you’re anything like me, you absolutely LOVE trying new and interesting organic products.

Yet, there are a few challenges with this.

One, how do you find them.

Two, there is a risk associated with spending money on all of these products, especially if you take one bite of a $7 granola and don’t like it.

Wedderspoon Makes Fantastic and Innovative Honey Products, FREE Giveaway

Wedderspoon Makes Fantastic and Innovative Honey Products, FREE Giveaway

While it may be easy to name the top brands of pressed organic juice, coconut water, or breakfast cereal, the same cannot be said for honey. Honey is just not as visible, and many vendors of honey are small and local. That doesn’t mean, however, that excellent national brands don’t exist. They do. And without […]

Honey is just not as visible, and many vendors of honey are small and local.

That doesn’t mean, however, that excellent national brands don’t exist. They do.

And without question, one of the best is Wedderspoon.

I first discovered Wedderspoon in 2010 at Natural Products Expo East and gave the company my Best of Show Award for its Manuka honey.  Since that time, I have been keeping a close watch on the company as it has slowly launched a number of other very impressive honey-based products.

Yet, it is Wedderspoon’s Organic Beechwood Honey that has really caught my eye.

Aside from its light, distinct, and flavorful taste, this honey has some unusual characteristics. Read more »

Organic Avenue recipe

With pressed organic juice now experiencing tremendous popularity, it seems that everyone wants a piece of the action and entrepreneurs from all over the country are quickly jumping into the juice game.

Yet, one of the pioneers of this massive trend, Denise Mari, founder of NYC’s Organic Avenue, was inspired by something other than money.

Having lost her younger sister to cancer at an early age, Denise quickly realized that she needed to live a life of real purpose and wanted to serve as an inspiration to other people.

Guided by the concept of ahimsa, which means “to do no harm”, her vegan and raw food lifestyle eventually manifested itself as Organic Avenue, and it was her goal to share her knowledge with as many individuals as possible.

Now, the publication of her just-released Organic Avenue: Recipes for Life, Made with Love* (LOVE = Live, Organic, Vegan, Experience) will allow her to do just that and reach people well beyond the confines of New York City. Read more »

Recently, I stopped by the offices of Sakara Life, the fantastic organic meal delivery service based here in NYC.

Even though I have known co-founders Danielle DuBoise and Whitney Tingle for a few years, I hadn’t fully researched their company until now. And what a huge mistake that was because it is an incredibly impressive operation with delicious food.

Currently, Sakara Life is delivering fully-prepared, 100% organic, gluten-free, plant-based meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) to customers in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. The service will eventually be expanded to other parts of the country, with California on the company’s near-term radar screen.

Here were a few things that I tasted. Read more »

The Best Farmers Market in the U.S. is in Miami, Florida

Most people would probably say that choosing the best farmers market in the country would be based on selection, prices, quantity, how much is organic, crowds, and overall experience. For me, it is much more simple. Which farmers market will dictate my entire travel schedule just so I can be there for it?

If you follow me on Facebook, you know that last week I took a short trip to Miami — I put up a bunch of pictures of the juice that I drank and the food that I ate down there.

What you didn’t see was food from a visit to Choices Cafe, an organic vegan restaurant in downtown Miami, right off of Brickell.

Given that several of my friends in the industry had told me about Choices Cafe and the restaurant has been listed in my Pressed Organic Juice Directory for quite some time, I was eager to go check it out. Read more »
