This has been on my mind lately, thanks for doing a post on it! Who doesn't love chocolate??
I used to wonder why anyone would pay for organic or free trade chocolate, and then I got wise to why and I can't ever look at M&Ms or kisses or anything else the same way anymore (which is a good thing, of course). Thanks for helping spread the message!
Is the Alter Eco free of soy lecithin? I can't find the ingredients list on their website, but I'll look for that bar next time I shop at my local green grocer.
Also, previously you have recommended the Green & Black white chocolate bar, but it contains soy lecithin. This post on food renegade has me thinking that's not an okay ingredient, even in organic chocolate: http://www.foodrenegade.com/decoding-labels-green-blacks-organic-hot-chocolate/
I've tried a few fruit/veggie combos. I didn't add lemon. That might help. My husband was already to try a juice fast (no fast for me) but he was immediately discouraged by the taste. I'll give the lemon a try. Thanks!
Hi Robyn - I've always loved juice, I guess I'm lucky like that! What combinations are you trying? Are you adding lemon? Lemon really cuts the taste of the greens and is a crucial component. Good Luck... hopefully your taste buds will adjust soon!
I recently was inspired to try juicing and bought a $65 juicer from Walmart. It works just fine. I'm glad I went cheap because so far I hate every juice I've tried to make, and so has my husband.
Vani, I was wondering, was icky to you at first, too? I really have to choke it down, and then I just dread the next batch. Did you have to develop a taste for it or am I just destined to be a miserable juicer? I have put more fruits than vegetables so far to try to make it more appealing to me, but it's still not good.
Hi Mama on the Run! I'd recommend the Breville for those starting out - super easy to use and clean. It's under 300, especially if you use a coupon from Bed Bath and Beyond :) - check out my site for more details here - http://foodbabe.com/2011/10/23/day-2-all-a…
Can we maybe hear about these kinds of events in advance, with a date and time, so we might have a chance of actually going?
What type of juicer do you use? And what juicer would you recommend to a newbie juicer that needs an affordable option before jumping into a $500+ investment?
Kelly, thanks for a wonderful review of our Saturday munching tour. Tom Hanchett was a terrific guide, and we will definitely return to Jamile's, which was a new find for me. Your photos of the dishes are mouth-watering. Mary Newsom, director of PlanCharlotte.org.
Growler's veganator is a joke. I hate to disparage any place offering vegan options but it's the sausage in a bun with some lightly sauteed peppers and onions. Zero percent creativity and it's dry as hell.
So many other options abound, it's really not that difficult being a vegan and eating out here in Charlotte.
Zizi's is not mentioned at all? Shame!
I love the Central Ave area. We used to live off Central Ave near Sharon Amity, and we were so close to so much amazing food. I'm so pleased to see these tours being offered. The area is a real gem!
Hey there ~ the farms we use are too long to list, but here are a few of the major ones: Lindly Mills for our organic grains, Bianco diNapoli for our organic low sodium sauce (not local b.c we can't get organic tomatoes year round), Burnett Dairy for cheese (also not local b.c NC mozzarella is too cost prohibitive),Windcrest Farms - lettuce, herbs, strawberries, cucumbers, Rivendell - produce, Bosky Acres - feta/goat cheese, The Mushroom Guy, Wild Turkey Farms - pepperoni/chorizo, Dan the Pig Man - pork, chicken, smoked salmon, Barbee Farms - radishes, spinich, Vang Farm - basil, Puzzle Piece - produce, Rooster Hill - eggs, Homeland Creamery - half/half, The Meat & Fish Co - meat & fish.
That names a few! we have too many to list, but hopefully this gives you a good idea who we are supporting! Hope you come by ; >
This event is sold out :(
You forgot to mention how ridiculously expensive Amelie's is.
Touche, Anonymous. 'Tis been changed.
Saturday May 10th? 2012? Might not exist.
Can we get a copyeditor up in here?! How about participants of The Big Brew Ha not only supported the preservation of St. Peter's Church but WERE treated to an array of...
"Pure Pizza's claim to fame is that it's Charlotte's only farm-to-fork pizzeria, boasting locally grown and organic ingredients." Very cool, can you ask them to share the list of local farms that supply the flour, tomato, cheese, veggies and proteins they us to make the pizza.
