Superseedz: Why You Need Gourmet Pumpkin Seeds

Someone told me the other day that I’m “so lucky” because I can eat whatever I want and not gain weight. Um, no.

Amoretti’s Unique Agaves

Sugar is a big buzz word thanks to the Katie Couric-produced documentary Fed Up and books like Michael Moss’ Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us — both of which I think are must sees/reads.

Maple Water: The New Coconut Water

Way back when I had no concept of what a calorie was I used to DRINK Vermont Maple Syrup…like straight out of the bottle. Tina was a little more sophisticated than I was…she would mix maple syrup with snow, which is kind of, sort of what the new trend to hit retail shelves in the U.S. is – maple water.
