I ran across an interesting article the other day and thought it was worth sharing.

It was in New Life Magazine, an alternative health magazine, and it was written by David Wolfe, who is arguably the most well-known figure in the raw food world.  While the title says it is for women’s health, I believe that the list is just as applicable to men.

Below, I have summarized his 10 remedies and give my feedback on each of them.

MEDICINAL MUSHROOMS

He mentions one of the most popular medicinal mushrooms, reishi. Very high in antioxidants, protects body from free radicals, and good for heart disease and blood pressure. Read more »


My Recent Dinner at Quintessence in NYC

My Recent Dinner at Quintessence in NYC

Recently I had dinner at Quintessence in NYC. Quintessence is an organic raw food restaurant in the East Village that I enjoy very much. For those unfamiliar with raw food restaurants, everything is vegan and nothing is cooked above 118 degrees. So, why do I like going to Quintessence?

CHIA SEEDS

With people on a constant search for protein-rich food, chia seeds will become the popular choice. Again.

Chia seeds were a central component of the Aztec and Mayan diets and supposedly were the main food that Aztec warriors carried with them when they went off to fight. It was considered a sacred food back then. Read more »

The are two big trade shows in the organic food world in the U.S.  One is Natural Products Expo West and one is Natural Products Expo East.  Expo East took place a few weeks ago and Expo West took place in March.

When I go to each show, I am looking for the best and newest organic products on the market.

However, I also come across a select number of fantastic products at these shows that are not organic food ones. And of these, most are not even food.

I thought that people would be curious as to some other cool products that I discovered at Expo East and here they are:

IT’S MORINGA

Moringa is supposedly this beyond-super superfood from Africa and is derived from the moringa oleifera tree, which the company says is the most nutrient-rich vegetable tree in the world.  It has:

– 25-30% protein (9x the protein of yogurt)

– 10x the Vitamin A of carrots

– 17x the calcium of milk

– 15x the potassium of bananas

– 25x the iron of spinach

– 4x the chlorophyll of wheatgrass Read more »

Last week, I went to the Natural Products Expo East Trade Show in Boston. I just absolutely love these shows. Not only do I get to meet some fantastic people but I have the opportunity to see the newest products on the market.

These are the best organic food products that I came across.

SIPP – GINGER BLOSSOM SODA

I can only describe Sipp’s ginger blossom soda in one word – WOW.

When I first took a sip, I experienced the ginger. Then literally within one second, the ginger vanished and vanilla poured in. It was like Houdini played a trick on me.

The aftertaste was where things calmed down and I could reflect on what was in my mouth. If I could compare it to anything, I’d say this drink tastes like a cream soda. The few ingredients include ginger, lime, vanilla and agave nectar.

I am not a huge organic soda drinker but this beverage was simply outstanding. It was very, very hard to put down. Read more »

One of the organic food trends that I predicted for this year was the continued growth of coconut water.

There is a product on the market by a company called Exotic Superfoods (great name, isn’t it?) that sells certified organic young Thai coconut water.

Why is this so novel?

Well, the white young Thai coconuts that you see in the market are not organic. They are shipped from Thailand in formaldehyde in order to prevent mold from growing on the outside. Yes, formaldehyde. The same stuff they use on a corpse.

Exotic Superfoods gets around this whole mold issue by bottling the water in Thailand and shipping them frozen to the US. When you buy them here, you usually buy them frozen and have to let them defrost before drinking.

Nevertheless, non-organic coconuts are widely used in the raw food world, which generally prides itself on organic food.  Read more »

For those not super-entrenched in the organic world, Maria Rodale may not be a household name.  However, Maria Rodale is part of the Rodale family, which is as close to royalty as it gets when it comes to organic food in the U.S.

In 1947, Maria Rodale’s grandfather, J.I. Rodale, came to understand the connection between soil quality and health, and founded the Soil and Health Foundation, forerunner to the Rodale Institute.

More famously, he also founded Organic Farming and Gardening (now known as Organic Gardening), which was the first organic magazine of its kind. This venture led to many other books, magazines and served as the foundation for the Rodale publishing empire.

Now led by Maria Rodale, the company is the leading multimedia company with a focus on health, wellness, and the environment, and the largest independent book publisher in the U.S.

Rodale reaches 70 million people through its various media properties.

Aside from her job as chairman and CEO of Rodale, Maria Rodale has her own blog called Maria’s Farm Country Kitchen.

In her blog, Maria Rodale asks me seven questions that cover various organic and non-organic issues. If you want to know why living organic is important to me, who my favorite musician is and what is the one kitchen appliance I can’t do without, please go check out the interview.
