Next week is the biggest organic trade show of the year – Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA – and I came to California early to visit a friend and to check out the newest organic restaurants in San Francicso. (Stay tuned to my blog over the next few days, as I have some great ones that I am going to be sharing with you!)

For food on my flight, one product that I brought with me was Muesli Fusion’s Athlete Fuel.

I first discovered Muesli Fusion’s Athlete Fuel at Natural Products Expo East 2012 in Baltimore several months ago when I stopped by the company’s booth.

Right away, I was impressed with the product because it was hearty and filling. The product satisfied my hunger cravings, left me feeling very satiated, and was packed with plenty of Omega-3s from the nuts and seeds. Read more »

With 48 states fighting the flu and 29 children having died from the virus, it has definitely been on my mind, especially since it is in the news every single day.

That being said, I have not gotten and would never get a flu shot. (My friend Vani Hari wrote about the garbage that they put in these shots, in case you are interested.)

My idea of staying healthy and avoiding being sick is to make sure that my immune system is strong as it can be.

So, I am:

– Getting as much rest as I can.

– Juicing a ton. Mostly green juice, ginger shots, and carrot juice. Separately. Read more »

When I review organic food products, I do my best to make sure that they are available either online or at retail locations throughout much of the country, so readers can go buy them.

Sometimes, however, my excitement about a product is so strong that I have to make an exception.

Over the Thanksgiving holidays, not only was I fortunate to have eaten at Dr. Andrew Weil’s restaurant True Food Kitchen for the very first time, but I was also lucky enough to have discovered Zuké kimchi by the Esoteric Food Company.

For the most part, sauerkraut, kimchi and other fermented foods is a very regional business.

So, wherever you go in the U.S., there tends to be a different local producer of these foods. Read more »

Nature’s Path has come out with what I believe is their finest product yet and epitomizes the future of food.

I am a huge fan of super-nutritious, simple ingredients, and I don’t like a product that is too sweet.

And that is exactly what Qi’A Superfood Cereal is all about.

The core components of the Qi’a Cereal are chia seeds, buckwheat groats, and hemp seeds. These are all protein-packed foods that I eat on a regular basis.

Included with these three are cranberries (with sunflower oil), almonds, and natural vanilla flavor.

So, what you end up with is a great tasting, extremely healthy cereal that has just the right amount of sweetness and no added sugar. Read more »

I must admit that I am really, really late to this whole Greek yogurt craze.

Even though New York City now has several yogurt bars throughout Manhattan, it was only last week did I dive in and learn first-hand what this excitement was all about.

Greek yogurt is thicker than traditional yogurt since the whey liquid is strained out, leaving a thicker and creamier yogurt. Furthermore, the protein levels are higher because the yogurt is denser.

In my research, I found several brands that I liked but the one that really stood out to me was the organic Greek lowfat yogurt from Wallaby. Read more »
