Reflecting back on 2012, it was truly an amazing year and so much happened that I can hardly believe it.

More than anything, I am beyond grateful for the growing number of people who read what I have to say here. So, I thank each and every one of you for the time you spend on my site and on my social media pages.

In no particular order, here are my Top 5 Organic Food Moments of 2012.

COSTA RICA TRIP

The trip I took to Costa Rica in February was unforgettable. We went to EARTH University, learned how sustainable bananas are produced, saw the incredible work that the Whole Planet Foundation is doing down there, spent time on the coast at Puerto Viejo, and built a biodigester for a local family in need.

It may very well be the best moment since I started livingmaxwell a few years ago. Read more »

A brand new restaurant opened up in New York City called Hu Kitchen, and I am HUGE fan.

As Founder/CEO Jordan Brown explains in my interview above, Hu Kitchen represents “food for humans”, and the philosophy is about serving unprocessed, non-GMO food in a way that people have been eating for a long, long time.

Aside from the fact that it is just a short walk from where I live and work in NYC, there are several things that I love about Hu Kitchen.

1) The organic food is fresh and great tasting, and the diverse menu appeals to both vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

2) Hu Kitchen has something very unique and completely innovative called a Mashbar. Read more »

For those people who don’t know, there is an incredibly important ballot initiative taking place in California later this fall called Proposition 37.

As I wrote about the other day, Proposition 37 would require the mandatory labeling of genetically-modified food products (GMOs) in California, and the citizens of that state will be voting on it in just a few months.

Because these companies don’t want people to know that what they are eating has been genetically-modified. It is better for these businesses that consumers remain in the dark and not ask any questions about what GMOs could mean for their health. Read more »

I see a lot of products in the organic food world but there is a buzz about Harmless Harvest and its coconut water that I have never seen before.

This tends to happen when you are in a super-hot category and you are the best tasting, healthiest product in that category.

Harmless Harvest’s raw organic coconut water is made by using a technology called high pressure pasteurization (HPP), which I named one of my top 5 organic food trends for 2012. Read more »
