A Quickie: Food Labels

What takes nine minutes and can completely change the way your body feels? No – not that! How about a fast tutorial on reading a food label? I know, not so sexy, but kind of interesting to learn how challenging it really is to figure out what’s going into our bodies. Dietician/Nutritionist Jeff Novick shows us why 76 percent of grocery items outside the produce section have no nutritional value; why  we get less than a serving a day of whole grains, and... Read More

And as of today, Green Pomegranate does have something in common with your favorite fruits: it’s making its debut at Whole Foods. Now moms can efficiently shop for their tiniest fashionistas (while scoring dinner)... Read More

Go Green for St. Pat’s and Save the Earth

What does drinking green beer have to do with a saint? Hmm, not sure…  Here’s another thing to contemplate: What does eating green have to do with protecting the environment? Ask the guy on the barstool next to you. Maybe he’ll know that animal agriculture (producing meat for our food supply) is responsible for more greenhouse gasses than all the world’s automobiles and other transportation combined.  At least, that was the case five years ago when... Read More

Show Me the Money!

In the final course toward eCornell’s certificate in plant-based nutrition, I’m asked to defend my diet — again. Of course, I’ve done this before and posted my “ESAD” philosophy, but if you don’t want to be offended, don’t click the link. Meanwhile, here’s a refresher on the question, “Why don’t you eat a normal diet?” Eating the normal American diet is a form of slow poisoning. I don’t do it because... Read More

Nosh like Natalie

 Oscar winner and vegan, Natalie Portman explained to The Huffington Post why the book Eating Animals changed her world. Jonathan Safran Foer’s book Eating Animals changed me from a twenty-year vegetarian to a vegan activist. I’ve always been shy about being critical of others’ choices because I hate when people do that to me. I’m often interrogated about being vegetarian (e.g., “What if you find out that carrots feel pain, too? Then what’ll... Read More

Believe Nothing

 “Believe nothing.
No matter 
where you read it, or who said it, even if I have said it, unless it agrees with you own reason and your own common sense."

               - Buddha

“The same molecules
that make up the food
we consume become
the molecules of our
minds and bodies.
So, unless you grow
your own food, you
should choose a
farmer as carefully as
 you choose your 
doctor or pastor.”

  _ Tim Willey, Farmer
             Madera CA
 “If man made it… don’t eat





        - Jack LaLanne

  “If we are
 always arriving and
 departing, it is also
 true that we are 
 eternally anchored. 
 One's destination is 
 never a place but 
 rather a new way of 
 looking at things."

           - Henry Miller
  “The rest of the
 world lives to eat…
 I eat to live.”
- Socrates
“Teachers open the door, 

you must enter by 


         - Chinese proverb
