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 […]

When Ratatouille speaks…I listen

Wisdom garnered from the tradition of slow cooking.     There is wisdom in this traditional method. It isn’t rocket science to understand, but like all truths, it is profound once you “get it”. This slow method of making Ratatouille is intimate and deeply loving. Why? Because it requires time, presence, and patience. Via this […]

The Healthier “Happy Meal” (sans GMOs)

Ina with spoon soup-300x168

Three weeks ago I began a class out of my kitchen, called “Meatless Mondays in Ina’s Kitchen.”  Meatless Mondays is a concept I wrote about last June, in Oasis in Aisle 6 – the Life-saving Legumes.

let’s talk turkey – NOT! Issue 4 November 17, 2011 By normal circumstances, a week before Thanksgiving I have food on the brain. This year however, I’ve also been writing for GoodFoodWorld.com (since last February), and food – in one form or another- has felt like a constant companion. Recently I’ve been even more inspired […]

Flip the Switch ON!

How to Grow Your Relationship to Real Food In my last article, Nature vs. Nutritionism’s False Hope, I said that not only does nutritionism not work as a food guidance system, following it as the savior to our dietary problems actually leads us away from the one and only thing that can put us on the […]

Nature vs. Nutritionism’s False Hope

How many times have you heard this question, “With all the scientific information we now know about nutrition, how come Americans are heavier and unhealthier now than ever before?” The answer is the same as it ever was: because we overeat, we eat a ton of crap food, and don’t sufficiently exercise. We know it […]

The Disconnect

Organically grown, local, whole, affordable, planetary stewardship, food justice, sustainably farmed, humanely raised and slaughtered, slow cooked and seasonally eaten, nutritionism, vegan, healthy lifestyle; these are just some of the words that come to mind around the elite conversation of How, What, When and Where we eat these days.

Liquid Liers

Water, water everywhere, but not a drop we drink – unless it: is flavored, colored, sweetened, pumped with “nutrient enhancement through vitamins,” antioxidants, electrolytes; promises replenishment from my hard sweaty workout, energy, hydration, power, performance or immune protection; and comes in a sexy or techno-looking bottle. I am still in the middle of a typical supermarket. […]
