For someone who doesn’t eat a ton of bread, I am certainly pretty curious about it.

Why is this?

Well, there is something very intoxicating and nourishing about bread. There are not that many foods that are so satisfying to have in your mouth and chew on.

Also, there are so many ways to innovate with bread — ways to make it, ingredients to put in, things to exclude.

For that reason, I find myself rummaging through the freezer section of my local organic market quite often — all in search of the latest, most intriguing bread. Read more »

Are you looking to add an incredibly healthy and nutritious food to your breakfast? You may want to consider organic sprouted chia seed powder.

For those unfamiliar with chia seeds, it is a true superfood that has been around for thousands of years. It is rumored that the Aztecs carried them when they went off to battle because chia seeds provided tremendous amounts of energy and strength.

Interestingly enough, a book that I am now reading now called Born to Run is about an indigenous Mexican people called the Tarahumara.

The Tarahumara are legendary for their ability to run ultra long distances, and their preferred source of energy is Iskiate — the main ingredient of which is chia seeds. Read more »

Last night in my local organic market, I stumbled upon a bag of Matt’s Munchies banana fruit snack.

There are a bunch of these organic fruit snack products on the market but I had never run across this brand before and was immediately intrigued.

So, I flipped over the bag and took a look at the ingredients – organic banana puree. That’s it, nothing else.

It didn’t take long for me to rip it open and take a bite. And I was very pleasantly surprised at what I found.

Well, what I found was me standing there, chewing, and eating the entire bag until it was gone. And I had to restrain myself from going to buy another one.

The taste was fantastic (very banana-esque, of course) and the texture reminded me of caramel candy I used to devour eons ago. Read more »

When I scour the supermarket shelves, I often come across fantastic products that use all organic ingredients but are not certified organic. Many times, I will then follow-up with those companies to see if and when certification is coming. This is exactly what happened with Flackers by Doctor in the Kitchen. I first discovered their […]

When I scour the supermarket shelves, I often come across fantastic products that use all organic ingredients but are not certified organic. Many times, I will then follow-up with those companies to see if and when certification is coming.

This is exactly what happened with Flackers by Doctor in the Kitchen. I first discovered their organic flax crackers several months ago, contacted the company and kind of forgot about them.

Then, out of nowhere, Flackers was back on the shelf at my local organic market and is now certified organic by MCIA.

AN INTERESTING PRODUCT

There are two main reasons why Flackers stands out to me.

1) Very unique flavor I am a huge rosemary fan and have never seen organic rosemary in flax crackers before. Aside from rosemary, Flackers also has organic sage. Read more »

Luna and Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss is one of the most beloved brands in the organic world. Consumers absolutely rave about their ice cream.

And for good reason.

Aside from the fact that people love ice cream in general, Luna and Larry’s delivers amazing tasting products, all of which use coconut milk as the base.

Needless to say, I have been eagerly anticipating Luna and Larry’s newest flavors but distribution problems caused delays in getting the products to the East Coast.

Finally, they arrived and I have been devouring Lunaberry Swirl ever since. 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 »

Recently, I have been eating quite a bit at Souen, a fantastic macrobiotic and organic restaurant in NYC, and one of my favorite things to order is the Macro Plate.

The Macro Plate is rice, beans, steamed vegetables and sea vegetables with carrot-ginger dressing, but I like to substitute the rice with soba noodles. Seeing as how I have become such a fan of soba noodles as of late, I thought that I would start making them at home.

Easier Said Than Done

In my search for soba noodles at my local organic market, it was very difficult to find organic soba noodles that did not contain wheat. Most contained whole wheat and buckwheat. I wanted buckwheat soba noodles with nothing else added. Read more »
