The other day I went to the farmer’s market in Santa Monica and spent some time talking to Jack Bezian of Bezian’s Bakery, the home of Los Angeles Sourdough. I say “spent some time” which makes it sound like twenty minutes or so, but the truth is I must have talked to him for a […]

I am pretty proud of my garden so far this year. Kate and I planted a bunch of stuff back in January: lettuce, thyme, mint, dandelion, shallots, garlic, onion, peas, dill, and fennel. I had a number of things still growing from last year: potatoes, rosemary, oregano, sage, lemon balm, strawberries, Meyer lemons, limes, blood oranges, and sorrel.
Ayala’s Herbal Water is hands down the best tasting water I’ve ever had. ‘ve never tasted anything remotely like this water. It’s like drinking tea or wine: very flavorful and multifaceted.

One of my best discoveries at the Expo West conference this year was Full of Life Flatbread Pizza. I was extremely impressed with the flavor and the crust. This pizza makes me proud to be a Californian. And thrilled to have another option for a healthy fast food.
For those who know me, I’m a snob about pizza crust. If it’s not fired in a wood-burning oven, it ain’t real pizza. This, my friends, is real pizza made in a wood burning oven.
I took home some samples of Bare Fruit Snacks from Expo West and I have to say, they are really delicious. What’s in them? Just organic fruit, dried in an oven. Nothing else.
The problem with a lot of dried fruit out there is it’s not organic and/or it’s got added sugar, oils, and other additives. Much of the dried fruit you’ll find in stores also has added sulfites.
Here are my Top 15 Healthy Eating Tips — based on traditional ways of eating. And yes, it involves eating more butter. (Hooray!) Nutrition is so confusing these days. Everyone’s telling you to eat low fat, eat soy, eat more fruits and vegetables, go vegan. And yet these days we are sicker than ever. Just […]
