For nearly all of us who have migrated to an organic lifestyle, the idea of incorporating powdered donuts or blueberry muffins into our diets is something we don’t even ponder.

The artificial colors and flavors, the trans fats, the absurd amounts of sugar, the way this junk food makes us feel.

Eating these products is a memory of the past when we either didn’t care what we were consuming or were not aware of the harm that these foods were causing to our bodies. Read more »

Last week in Organic Insider, I broke the story about how CEO Sheryl O’Loughlin, who had been leading the company for the past four years, was stepping down from her position.

Sheryl and her team approached me to write this piece, and a day after the story was released, I was able to get Sheryl on The Living Maxwell Podcast to discuss this more.

In our wide-ranging conversation, we talked about why she left REBBL, how the company was started, REBBL’s Brazil nut project in Latin America, her long-time interest in human rights, and how she overcame some serious personal struggles. Read more »

In the very first episode of The Living Maxwell Podcast, I interview Liana Werner-Gray, #1 best-selling author of three books (The Earth Diet, 10-Minute Recipes and Cancer-Free with Food) and a very in-demand nutrition coach.

As with many people who find their way into the wellness world, Liana was faced with a very, very serious health condition at a young age and made the incredibly courageous decision to deal with it in a natural and holistic way — against the wishes of conventional doctors.

But what I found to be even more inspirational about Liana is how she dealt with a tragic family event at age 17, which would have scarred most people for a lifetime. Instead, this tragedy helped shape Liana and gave her the strength to become the person she is today.

In this episode of the Living Maxwell podcast, Liana Werner-Gray shares this story for the very first time, and to this day, I am so inspired by (and in awe of) how she handled this situation. Read more »

David Bronner, the Cosmic Engagement Officer (CEO) of Dr. Bronner’s, saw this coming years ago.

With California having legalized cannabis in 2016, he knew that this plant was headed down the path of other agricultural crops — mass industrialization, genetic engineering, enormous energy consumption through fossil fuels, and the displacement of small-scale family farmers.

Where cannabis differs from other agricultural commodities, however, is that there can be no such thing as “organic cannabis” until the federal government stops classifying it as an illegal drug. Read more »

(The Impossible Burger from Impossible Foods)

As Beyond Meat’s very successful IPO is bringing a lot of attention to the alt-protein category, it is important to take a look at what exactly are in these food products.

One popular name in this space is the Impossible Burger, a product we first wrote about in 2017 when Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) documents uncovered that the FDA disagreed with the company’s safety assessments of the burger’s main ingredient — soy leghemoglobin. However, the company continued selling it to the public anyhow without informing consumers about the FDA’s very serious concerns.

The issue this time around with the Impossible Burger is the amount of glyphosate that it contains. Read more »
