This looks different for everyone, depending on who you are, what you like, and where you live. For some, the tradition might be making soup […]

It’s been a rough couple months. We wrapped up The Get Healthy Summit in June, and as soon as I wasn’t talking about raw foods and natural health 5 times a week, I could feel myself slipping into old ways of thinking. I was still eating green and raw, but a hectic work schedule and […]

Want to know the truth about organic foods? I’ve been reading  a book called Pandora’s Lunchbox and it’s absolutely frightening what goes into most of our store-bought food… Powders, chemicals, emulsifiers, and other poisons… All to either prevent mold and increase shelf life, or to cut down costs for the food manufacturers. Consider these disgusting […]

Sorry I haven’t been around blogging much lately. I ran out of gas. I had a flat tire… I didn’t have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake… A terrible flood. Locusts! […]

In 2010 I was diagnosed as a diabetic. It was inevitable: I had eaten like an idiot for over 20 years, and all I did was work on the computer. Still, while not surprising, it was a heavy blow. I have two little kids, and I want to be around to watch them grow! So […]

We’ve been eating vegetarian (for the most part) for about 8 weeks now, and I’ve discovered one thing: It’s easy to be a vegetarian that eats like SHIT. Doritos, for example, are vegetarian. So are Boca burgers, on big awesome sandwich rolls with cheese and catsup and a side of chips. And a soda. Cheese […]

A couple days ago, I did a 24 hour juice fast… And I have to tell you, it went better than I expected! We’ve been juicing in the mornings for over a year now, so I was pretty used to the process. I like the taste, and I knew it would fill me up just […]

At the grocery yesterday, I made the mistake of walking past the deli… I gazed upon the rows of glistening rotisserie chickens… The giant, salami-filled […]
