Food Inc.The Movie

SEE THIS FILM! The Netflix envelope that arrived  yesterday carried more than a plastic DVD, it carried a renewed sense of hope and a spark that reignited my passion.  I can’t say I learned anything from Food Inc. because it is sort of a Reader’s Digest version of the best books on food production the […]

We are having a blast filming recipes from the Delicious Revolution. Thankfully we have been able to merge making meals for the family and filming. The only real difference for me is the make up and lighting. Well, that and talking through what I am doing while I cook. The is starting to seem like […]

David Wolfe comments on The Delicious Revolution

WOW-am I having the best day ever!  I recently reconnected (thanks to FaceBook) with a friend from junior high school.  I remember him as a fun loving cohort in silly antics that made french class and science labs exponentially more fun.  He is still making life a lot more fun (and healthy) for people, but […]

Baby’s First Foods

Healthy eating and the benefits it brings to me and my family are a top priority for me. Now that it’s time to introduce my son to foods I find myself less than excited about the recommendations I get from our pediatrician.  The fact that doctors are given almost no nutritional training becomes glaringly obvious […]

Creamsicle Cravings

One of the sweets I wanted to emulate with healthier sweets was the good old fashioned orange creamsicle. Now when I was a kid this was actually made with regular sugar, fruit juice and ice cream, but take a look at the ingredients list on a box of those things nowadays and you’ll need a […]

Partial to Parsley

I can’t say I’m really big on parsley. It’s great in tabouli after it’s been marinated in the lemon and olive oil and spices that give the dish such flavor. I manage to squeeze some parsley into our diet via my raw versions of falafel and “neat”balls. But for how detoxifying and full of chlorophyl […]
