Here’s a hint. Water is much healthier to quench your thirst than sugary and caffeinated drinks. For most people, especially children, water by itself is a little boring though. The solution is clear.

Candid Conversation with ‘Pure Food and Wine’ Owner Sarma Melngailis

purefoodwine 03 Candid Conversation with Pure Food and Wine Owner Sarma Melngailis

Jay Norris has a candid conversation with Gourmet Chef, Sarma Melngailis, from the New York Restaurant Pure Food and Wine when they first opened.

In this interview, Pure Food and Wine chef and proprietor, Sarma, talks openly about her own path to becoming a raw food chef and about opening the new restaurant in New York City.

Jay: You have been open how long?

Sarma: We opened June 17, 2004

Jay: This is my 3rd month coming to this splendid restaurant. I love it.

Sarma: I can’t wait for the Spring and kind of afraid. All of a sudden the restaurant becomes this animal that is so much harder to manage because we need a lot more staff. It’s hard to seat the garden. It’s hard because it’s drizzling or it’s beautiful all day long and so we take reservations and then it rains.

Jay: I can’t wait to see that. See, I missed it last time, I can’t wait. Matthew explained it to me.

Sarma: The garden is so pretty. We have these beautiful dark cherry red banquette cushions that go on the seats in the back and then we have these bright red cushions that go on the chairs. And so it’s really colorful out there. It’s like a dinning room, it’s not like your usual New York outdoor space where you are sitting on these hardwood chairs. It’s really pretty.

Organics | A Low Harvest for Wal-Mart

apples3 Organics | A Low Harvest for Wal Mart

This is an article I just found in Business Week. Looks like Wal-Mart was a bit too ambitious about jumping on the organic bandwagon that they didn’t realize their strategy to attract the lowest price point customers, might not be the best market motivated to purchase organic food, even at only 10% higher costs. They’re not giving up, but it looks like they are scaling back on what they had predicted their growth in that segment might be. I guess maybe it was never that great of an idea to condition consumers to the mistaken belief that price and quantity always triumphs quality and sustainability. Obviously that is not reality.

(via: BusinessWeek) Last fall, Peter Ricker got an order from Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) for organic apples that was the biggest he’d ever seen. “I’m talking trailer truckloads,” says the Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

The gossip rags in NY never seem to stop about Pure Food and Wine. Now, their waiter gave the inside scoop to New York Magazine’s Ask a Waiter on Grub Street.

“I put Gisele plus three down on the guest list; my friends are like, [dismissively] ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah.’”Photo: Melissa Hom

David Moltz just celebrated his first anniversary as a server at raw-food mecca (and popular anniversary spot!) Pure Food and Wine. He isn’t going anywhere — at least not until his band Salt and Samovar takes off — and why would he? He’s had the opportunity to serve everyone from raw foodists such as Woody Harrelson to fellow omnivores such as Bill Clinton (“I couldn’t believe it when he walked in,” says Moltz. “He rolls with a crazy entourage.”) We asked him to spill the beans Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

Boston wants to Ban Plastic Bags Too

460474136 c89c637e1a o Boston wants to Ban Plastic Bags Too

San Francisco recently banned the use of plastic bags by stores, and now other cities are wanting to clean up their cities of them as well. Phoenix, Santa Cruz and Portland are among the other cities currently looking into getting the bags banned in their cities. Hopefully this will soon become a nationwide trend with demand for more environmentally friendly bags.

(via: Boston.com) The Boston City Council wants to ban the use of plastic shopping bags at supermarkets, pharmacies, and convenience stores in the city, saying the ubiquitous bags are a hazard to the environment and a maddening blight of the landscape. Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

Cafe Gratitude in the New York Times. This looks so good! I can’t wait to go there next time I’m in San Fran, or when they open their cafes in LA. I can’t believe I missed it when I was there. I guess I can just settle for their new book right now that will be shipping in a few days, called I AM GRATEFUL. Yes, I AM Grateful! I am Luscious! I am Sensational! I am Loving! I am Inspired! I am too tired to think right now! Yes, I would have more to say but I must sleep….. I am sleeping! Enjoy the article! Hope you had a wonderful Earth Day Weekend!

NYC Earth Day | Michael Bloomberg Draws a Blueprint for a Greener City

23mayor 600 NYC Earth Day | Michael Bloomberg Draws a Blueprint for a Greener City

Michael Bloomberg is urging a driving fee for Manhattan to reduce congestion and auto emissions. Perhaps all cities should do this. Certainly is a deterrent to driving your own ride and would motivate people to bike, carpool or take public transport more. I don’t see how taxis should be exempt though as they don’t carry many people at a time and therefore don’t offer a reduction of emissions or traffic congestion. Hopefully if this gets approved the fees earned will go directly into more and better busses and other forms of public transportation. On Earth Day Bloomberg proposed a plan at the American Museum of Natural History aimed at greening the city. Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

Are cell phones wiping out our bees?

461588835 9c73deb8b1 b Are cell phones wiping out our bees?

G Living has been reporting about the ongoing mystery of the mass disappearance and collapse of the honeybees. Now scientists finally have a theory and small study to back it up as to why it is happening, and it is not a hopeful one at all. This is yet just another illustration of how we are the cause and the effect is mass collapse and destruction of nature and her delicate and finely balanced interdependent homeostasis. Einstein even said that if the bees disappeared, man would only have four years left of life before we disappeared as well.

Scientists claim radiation from handsets are to blame for mysterious ‘colony collapse’ of bees
By Geoffrey Lean and Harriet Shawcross Published: 15 April 2007

It seems like the plot of a particularly far-fetched horror film. But some scientists suggest that our love of the mobile phone could cause massive food shortages, as the world’s harvests fail. Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos
