After a recent blog post by Tiffany at Don't Waste the Crumbs, I got all hot and bothered. And not in a sexy way.

Her compelling article, 14 Facts the Organic Industry Doesn’t Want You to Know, was in fact compelling enough to warrant a very heated discussion in the comment section on her blog, multiple link backs from other bloggers, a massive Facebook uproar, this blog post and even a direct response from the Organic Trade Organization itself. Much of the response hasn’t been admirable.

This is my two cents on She Eats​: The Organic Food Myth

You know, even though I'm self employed I still get hit with a case of the Mondays. And when that happens, I drink fennel.

Bottoms up (get the recipe) -->

 Or at least I drink fennel in vodka. Infused and shit. Because that's how I roll. How about you? Do you drink your vegetables? Ever try making an infusion?

My new blog post - The Fenhound - is a fresh spin on the classic Salty Dog Cocktail (aka a greyhound) and contains fennel infused vodka, fresh grapefruit juice & delicious cane sugar rim. Who's thirsty?

This recipe for black bean burgers that will knock your socks off!

Get it  -->

Okay, it probably won’t do that. I don’t know any food that will literally knock your socks clean off. Getting hit by a moving vehicle? Perhaps. Food? No. But it WILL be delicious and leave you feeling full, satisfied and a whole lot of good. And I’m not even a vegetarian. Plus they’re tasty to boot.
