Alice in Glyphosate Land

I feel as if I’m in a bizarre Wonderland that is unfortunately called the political reality in America! The faster I run towards devouring new information about the negative health effects of glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup Ready (RR) herbicide) and GMOs, the more I’m frustrated by the continuing attacks on our body politic […]

On the shoulders of Ed Espie Brown What an exciting time of change, rife with potential. Make no mistake; the Food Revolution is happening all around us. Daily I receive emails from organizations that mobilize and rally against Monsanto’s powerful undertow ,from those that are working to reform our broken food system, and from places […]

Tough love for good food

The truth about how to live healthier NOW in America. What a month of food news and food articles. In the span of 4 weeks time we’ve read that: the famous olive oil laden Mediterranean diet will keep us heart healthier, though not pounds lighter; the American processed food industry has been scientifically formulating its […]

There is no Planet B

Call me Tevye. On the one hand… I can say that Organic Consumers Association was being opportunistic by broadcasting their message – COOK ORGANIC NOT THE PLANET – at the “Forward on Climate Rally” to stop the Keystone pipeline held this past Sunday in Washington, D.C. It was, after all, the largest non-nuclear pro-environment march […]

It’s 2013…what food resolutions SHOULD you have?

It’s a new year, and with that often comes…the food and lifestyle resolutions. Well, it’s fifteen days into 2013 and I’m wondering if you are haunted yet by the words “I should” …? Research tells us that creating a new habit takes 21 days to congeal, so perhaps this article comes while you’re still in […]

BEWARE – If you don’t see it…it’s (most likely) there!

In the first few days post election, following the defeat of California’s Proposition 37 (the ballot initiative that would have required mandatory labeling of Genetically Engineered Food), I too, felt defeated. While the grass roots effort to raise consumer GMO awareness was substantial (the vote was 5,456,051 in favor, 5,990,280 against*), we lost Round One […]

Anger from the heart, action from love

Much has occurred since I sent out my last newsletter. I sure hope that you have made it through super-storm Sandy and the winds of change, literally. We were LUCKY in my Verona neighborhood.   The widespread destruction throughout the Northeast has left with me with a realization and one hopeful thought, that is, that […]

Squashed!

When you hear the word squash, do you say: “Yuck!” “Yum!” or “What do I do with it?” As a seasonal cook, and lover of vegetables, I’d be remiss if I wasn’t honest about my enthusiasm regarding fall foods, and in particular, squashes. Of all the produce that is grown in autumn, nothing says the […]

The fox will say the Chicken Littles are crying, ‘The sky is falling!’ and it appears it is!

On Monday morning, 9/17, I went to New York City with sign in hand to stand with others in solidarity against the use of unsafe GMO technology and the horrific practices of its most powerful progenitor – Monsanto. My destination: Times Square, in front of Good Morning America’s studio. Flip Side: For months, either Occupy […]

Dog Days of Summer: Lost in the Food System Maze

Mid August…sigh. Today’s a rainy day with cooler weather and I’m home on a stay-cation this week. I’m feeling that summer’s wave has long crested and I’m on that inevitable slow coast back to the shore called September. Not exactly high energy, yet I do have a GoodFoodWorld article to write. And while I am […]
