  • Where does that Earl Grey tea come from?

    Tea is one of those commodities that should be subject to Fair Trade standards and in my humble opinion should be organic and non-GMO as well — for the enjoyment and health of the tea drinker as well as those who work on the farms, which are often in faraway places where the potential for unsafe and unfair practices has been common.

  • Millet Recipe: Accidental Millet Pilaf

    It is probably time for me to go get a wee bit of an upgrade on my eye glasses prescription . . . I had this fantastic idea the other night to whip up a quick batch of quinoa pilaf and have it with a hearty spinach salad to make a nice healthy winter meal. More

  • The Mother of All Grains for a Gluten-Free Rice Alternative

    I don’t know about you, but all this news about arsenic in rice is a bummer for this gluten-free green diva! I LOVE rice, and it is the basis of most of the grain alternatives I’ve turned to to avoid gluten – ugh. Now, I realize that not ALL rice is laden with arsenic, but this is all a good lesson in not relying heavily on any one type of grain or food too heavily – moderation and variety are probably always key to balancing out some of the harmful effects of any one food.

  • In Season Now: APPLES!

    When did apple picking become such a competitive sport? We went out with a couple of the kids and our grand kids this past weekend, and when we pulled up to the farm driveway and saw lots of official looking men with flags to direct traffic and that cars were already overflowing into a new parking field at 10am, we kind of knew we might be in for a serious adventure.

  • Green Divas & Dudes Prefer Organic Food

    This green diva has to weigh in on all the buzz and banter about the latest study from Stanford about the lack of nutritional benefit from eating organic food.

  • Farmer’s Market Fare: Late Summer Mix (recipes)

    I finally live in a town that has a farmer’s market – not that I lived so far from it before we moved a whole mile and a half to the new place, but there is something about being able to walk out the door with a couple of bags and walk down to the farmer’s market on a Saturday morning that is particularly awesome.

  • Vegan Cinco de Mayo Brunch Featuring Easy Mole

    I love all the vegan foodie porn out there on Pinterest and FoodGawker and of course, the recipes on sites like this one! Found this one that claimed a quick and easy mole (the traditional Mexican spicy chocolate sauce that is kinda like brown crack) . . . have you ever tried to make mole? More

  • Confessions of a Cheese Addicted Vegan Wannabe

    Over the years, I’ve wandered in and out of various states of vegan and vegetarian and even had a few years as an omnivore (but only ate very carefully chosen responsibly raised meats). My downfall has always been cheese. Do they have a 12-step program for cheese – just cheese? I need it. More

  • Fran Drescher on Cancer Schmancer and Organic Food

    We talked to the amazing Fran Drescher actress and activist and founder of Cancer Schmancer for this segment and asked her what she is most passionate about when it comes to sustainable and healthy living and why should we care . . .
