Did you know some of your favorite natural and organic food brands are being consolidated by larger companies? Learn more about why this is good… and bad.
What do you store your leftovers in? I’m sure, like most people you place them into a plastic tupperware container, however you may be surprised to learn that some food storage options add their own special “flavor” to your leftovers. That flavor may be bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalates, antimony, or any number of other chemicals that, […]
Thousands of miles are traveled each day by hundreds upon hundreds of semi-trucks filled with food and items going from west coast to east and back again. How our system works allows for this amount of action to fill a need that could be filled much more easily and without so much fossil fuel usage. […]

Quite recently, due to a Stanford University study, organic food has been on the tip of everyone’s lips. From those who believe so strongly in organic that they fill their fridges with nothing else to those who think that the organic trend is, just that, a trend. The organic argument has many branches, from pesticides to GMO’s; and while they are all a part of a larger equation, today I want to address GMO’S or genetically modified organisms.
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 […]
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.
