Forget about Monsanto and the et als.!

My Good Food Friends –

If the Organic Community spent half as much time as it does pissin’, moanin’, whinin’, cryin’ and complainin’ about what the GMO boys and girls are doin’, and instead, spent that time on TELLING  its OWN STORY  and SELLING  an up-with-life  feeling, Organics would probably be further down the road than its current, and rather paltry and diminishing 4+/-% Market Share!

If time, energy and resources were spent, and FOCUSED, on MAKING  Organic Good Food the just-got-to-have, the go-to, the FIRST CHOICE, THE FASHION, and hitting the holy grail of COOL, the GMO/non-organic stuff would just simply disappear from a lack of consumer interest.

The ‘Law of Attraction’ states you move towards  that which you want to become, a message more compelling than moving away  from that which to avoid.

My concern, is that after 25 years, Organic Good Food is ONLY 4+/-% POPULAR.  THAT’S worse than Congress’ popularity!

After 25 years, only a 4+/-% Market Share and 1% at the Farm Gate? WHY?

Does the Organic Community need a change in its public appearances?  YES!

'Fairy Dancer' - TILTH, Seattle

Consider this: In Europe, and in a lot of other Countries, GMOS are for the most part, banned, shunned, not-allowed or labeled, and Organics are STILL a niche player!

As I think about the future of Organic Good Food, the reason Organics only have a niche Market Share, is because the Organic Industry, as a whole, has been telling virtually the same old story  the entire time. The general public perceives the Organic Community, and its Spokespeople, to always seem to be against something, always angry, anti-this, anti-that, rigid ideologues, lecturing, holier-than-thou … never seem to just be HAPPY.

The Organic Community tends to have an arrogant, above-it-all, humorless, elitist, a stern dietician’s we-know-what’s-better-for-you stance.

Many in the Organic Industry have called or written me, saying a better narrative is needed. I couldn’t agree more.

Think about this. In 1996, there were more Organic Seeds than GMO seeds. NOW, the reverse is true. WHY?   Monsanto et al. simply told a more compelling  STORY to Farmers, to Regulatory Agencies, to Politicians, to Reporters, News Agencies, Retailers and Mainstream Consumers. They spent their time, energies and resources talking about THEMSELVES and SELLING!

The Organic Community is always fighting something, forcing its customers to be involved in a movement, to be issues oriented, to have to ‘take sides’, to consider their food purchase to be a political statement, when all the average consumer wants is to simply make a choice that reflects to them a positive, happy, trouble-free lifestyle in this World of trouble all ‘round. The general public feels overwhelmed and is tired of being lectured and warned of yet another imminent crisis.

Organics should just let shoppers be happy BUYERS.  No strings attached.  Don’t involve them in politics or the issue of the moment.  Just ask them to SPEND their money on Organic Good Food for their own GOOD HEALTH & HAPPINESS … and nothing else. Just let them ENJOY  their Organic Good Food Choices and the JOY  they bring to life!

m1

The Organic ‘Choir’ is so convinced and so enamored with the ‘purity’ of its own product, that SELLING  it seems to be almost beneath them. But SELLING  shouldn’t be, as our very lives depend upon a dramatic GROWTH and rapid EXPANSION of Market Share of wholesome, healthful, life-giving Organic Good FOOD.

Sometimes it seems that the only purpose for Organics is that it’s grown ‘organically’, that it protects the environment. The Organic Industry always tries to tell what Organics don’t do, rather than SELLING what they WILL DO … TO, and FOR, THE CONSUMER! The eater can’t see that the purchase of an Organic Celery cleans a river. But, upon one sip of BAINBRIDGE DISTILLER’S Organic Battle Point Whiskey, they’ll KNOW what GOOD Organics can DO FOR THEM! Oh, YEAH!

So, get off your tractors, shine your shoes, get dressed, comb your hair and become relevant.

The Organic Industry has to get over itself, get its hands out of the good soil and its head out of the clouds and take some lessons from those companies that KNOW HOW TO SELL LOTS OF STUFF: Budweiser®, Apple®, Coke®.  There is nothing inherently wrong with SELLING. There is no dishonor in SELLING Organic Good Food, after all, Organic Good FOOD is the only TRUE FOOD left for us to thrive on, FOOD that’s GOOD for PEOPLE & PLANET.  So SELLING MORE OF IT to every Man, Woman and Child is an HONORABLE endeavor.

Put some FUN in The Organic Good Food STORY! FUN is hard to ignore. Show some CHEERINESS and HAPPINESS, ‘cause that’s where everyone WANTS to be, NOT over there in a harsh, limited little world with LESS  CHEER, LESS  HAPPINESS & LESS  FUN.

Organic activists write Manifestos! So did the Communists.

Where’s the FUN, SEX and ROCK ‘N’  ROLL?

Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Good Food Girl, Maura

Everyone wants to be over there on the happy side, the Capt’n Morgan® side, the MILLER® Lite side, and not over there with the angry nutritionists, the food police gang and ‘protesters’! The Organic Industry’s rather dour Story has handicapped its Market Share.

Another example of EFFECTIVE MARKETING, and this one is as old as the hills, but ever so relevant: In every blind taste-test, Pepsi® ALWAYS beats Coke®, but Coke® outsells Pepsi® by miles! Why? It’s ALL in the MARKETING, the SELLING, the IMAGE! So now, think about THIS: Organic Good Food ALWAYS TASTES BETTER than its synthesized, chemicalized, laboratory concocted non-organic imitator. So, why only the 4+/-% Market Share? Wrong image!

Even now, in 2014, because of Organics’ dreary image, counter-culture and life-style of denial, I have to open the LIVE Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Shows with a take-away: “I don’t live in a commune, I don’t wear tie-dye, I can’t spell Birkenstock and I don’t eat granola!” I have to assure them, life’s to LIVE! And the audience goes, “Whew! We’re safe with this guy!’

Position Organic Good Foods as HIP, HEALTHY, TASTY, COOL and RELEVANT!  ALWAYS. PERIOD!

 After all, Organic Good Food is the LIFE  of the party!

m5The KEELY CLARK See and Be Seen It’s Your Beat! Tour.

Artist Ambassador KEELY CLARK, The Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Good Food Girls, Maaza, Maura & Lucy and ONE HAPPY BOY!

 I’m deluged with e-mail messages from food activists demanding that I “Tell Congress to …”, ”Stop Congress from …”, “Sign THIS Petition”, “‘Just LABEL It!’”, “We need your money to …“, “OPPOSE … “, “Join our struggle AGAINST … “, Tell The FDA …”, “Tell the USDA …”, “Call my Senator” and on and on and on, never-ending. But all I ever get from Kellogg’s®, McDonalds, Coke® and Budweiser® is “The Start of Possible”, “i’m lovin’ it®”, “open happiness™”, “Great Times are Waiting: GRAB SOME BUDS”, “Everything POPS with PRINGLES™” and “LIVE MÁS™”. They never ask me to do anything other than BUY their stuff … and with a smile!

Budweiser® doesn’t show you their hops.  They just take you to somewhere they know you just kinda want to be.  Organics INSIST on proving up the value of its hops via PowerPoint, but then never ends up taking anyone anywhere.

Apple® makes people line up around the block for something they don’t really  need and the Organic Industry can’t even get enough people to buy enough Organic Carrots to actually make a healthful difference in their lives!

Organic family feuds  distract from Market Growth. Boycotts, recriminations, rock throwing and name calling CONFUSES the consumer and limits growth. If The Organic Consumers Association, Cornucopia Institute, The Organic Trade Association, Food & Water Watch, The Center for Food Safety, Food Democracy Now, Institute for Responsible Technology and other KEY players were ever to all get together, decide upon a message and get on the same page, Organics would be propelled to its rightful place in the market – THE MAJORITY SHARE!

Create the FUSION of FOOD, FUN and FASHION. SHOW, TELL and SELL  what GOOD LIVIN’ looks like, sounds like, tastes and feels.

The FRESH FACES of ORGANIC! The Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Good Food Girls, Lucy, KEELY & Maura

 Grocery Stores have Cheese Specialists, Meat Specialists, Seafood Specialists and Wine Stewards. They even have ‘a produce guy’. WHERE’S the Organic Expert?

TELL & SELL  what simply makes the consumer FEEL GOOD when making the purchase, ‘cause I KNOW the eater is going to feel REAL GOOD  after ENJOYING  their Organic Good Food!

And way back in 1944, songwriter Johnny Mercer got it RIGHT in the song

AC-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive:

“You’ve got to accentuate the positive

Eliminate the negative

Latch on to the affirmative

Don’t mess with Mister In Between

 

You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum

Bring gloom down to the minimum

Have faith or pandemonium

Liable to walk upon the scene

 

Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark

What did they do

Just when everything looked so dark

 

Man, they said we better

Accentuate the positive

Eliminate the negative

Latch on to the affirmative

Don’t mess with Mister In-Between

No, do not mess with Mister In-Between

Do you hear me, hmm?

 

Oh, listen to me and-a you will hear

About the elininatin’ of the negative

And the accent on the positive

And gather ’round me if you’re willin’

And sit tight while I start reviewin’

The attitude of doin’ right

 

You’ve got to accentuate the positive

Eliminate the negative

Latch on to the affirmative

Don’t mess with Mister In Between”

And you can take my analysis TO THE BANK, as here’s PROOF that I AM your POT o’ GOLD at the end of the Rainbow! Here it is, right over my Office!

“I now know  where you and Pastor Wyatt get ALL YOUR ENERGY and I WANT some too … and now  I KNOW HOW to get it! Thank you!” – Student

Francis Solomon, PhD, was in the Audience for the Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show we presented to the Children’s Environmental Health Working Group in June last year at the Washington Park Arboretum.

Dr. Solomon is a Professor at THE EVERGREEN STATE COLLEGE Tacoma Campus. She was so taken by my and Pastor Gary L. Wyatt’s “extraordinary performance”, that she soooo chatted up our Show to the Tacoma Campus Director, Tyrus Smith, PhD, that Change Your Food – Change Your Life! was invited to do TWO Shows, like Vegas, one at 10AM and one at 6PM, so that ALL the Students, Faculty and Staff could take it in!

Well, Change Your Food – Change Your Life! and Organic Good Foods WON THE DAY & NIGHT!

We inspired the Audience with our STORIES, SONGS and TESTIMONIALS of the JOY and VIBRANT GOOD HEALTH Organic Good Foods can bring into their lives!

“EAT GOOD=FEEL GOOD. That’s the equation for livin’ the good life! And I’ll tell you what… I’ve never felt better in my life. I feel the way I was designed to feel, the way I was meant to feel. Very few people ever feel the way they were designed to feel… the way they should feel … every day. And I’ll tell you, once you know how you were designed to feel, how you should feel, how good you can feel, you’ll do anything and everything to preserve, defend and protect that genuine sense of well-being. It is absolutely wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!

There ain’t nothin’ like it! It’s to CELEBRATE! You’ll want to SHOUT … I feeeeel good like I knew that I could … I feel nice, like sugar and spice! I’ve got more energy, more spirit than any 5 year old that you’ve seen jumpin’ straight up and down with unbridled excitement!

You DO feel THAT GOOD! It’s LIFE  worth LIVING!”

And we LOVED the Audience: FULL of energy, enthusiasm, comments and questions.

The ENERGY  in the room was on high! Pastor Gary L. Wyatt singin’ GO-O to ’em from his keyboard … just picture the Audience in his hand!

My long-time Good Food Friend, Trudy Bialic, Spokesperson, PCC Natural Markets, and past Editor of PCC’s widely circulated Newspaper SOUND CONSUMER, describes The Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show: “Might as well plan on diving into the crowd afterward!   They will want to carry you around on their hands. You have bested Ringling in the art of public engagement – serious info presented as fun!”

We were quite moved by the from-the heart standing ovations given us after the 10AM and 6PM Shows.

11

Pastor Wyatt and I were movin’ so fast sharin’ The Organic Good Food News with such high-energy as our Good Food Friend, Morganic Coffinger, describes it, “A high-vibe Show!”, that we shook the camera. So, try as our picture-taker might, there are very few pics of either one of us in focus except when we were standing STILL!

Because as we say, “The real benefit of making Organic Good Food Choices is your energy level. I get up in the morning and take a breath and my energy level comes right up to the top and stays that way all day long. There are no peaks and valleys, dips and doodles… and it’s not a nervous energy, not an anxious energy … at the snap of a finger I can daydream. My energy level is reliable, dependable and constant. And, in fact, at the end of the day, my dear Sue has to say… ‘Dennis, Dennis it’s time to go to sleep now.’ I have to consciously end my day. How many of you have an energy level like that… day in, day out, every day!

Well … change your food, change your life and get up there with us. We’ll tell you how and we’ll even get you started today! Just look right in your swag bag!”

And as one Student commented after The Show, “Thank you for this evening. You had a great message, but it is your ENERGY that sold it!”

In a FUN Audience participation segment, I ask, “Who’s a good out-loud reader?” I go over to a raised hand and give them this to read:

Ingredients: Water, sugar, enriched bleached flour (wheat flour, niacin, ferrous sulfate, thiamin, riboflavin, folic acid), vegetable oil (palm, soy-bean, mono&diglycerides, polysorbate 60), eggs, vegetable shortening (palm &/or soybean oil, propylene glycol, mono&diesters of fatty acids, mono & diglycerides, soy lecithin, BHT), corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, nonfat milk solids, egg whites, wheat starch, modified food starch (corn, tapioca), sodium bicarbonate, salt, dextrose, acidic sodium aluminum phosphate, natural & artificial flavor, sodium acid pyrophosphate, emulsifier (monoglycerides, propylene glycol, monoesters, sodium stearoyl lactylate, calcium silicate), dextrin, carnauba wax, confectioner’s glaze, gum arabic, rice flour, cornstarch, guar gum, xanthan gum, phosphoric acid, preservatives (potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate), monocalcium phosphate, artificial colors (red 3&40, yellow 5&6, blue 1) lakes (red 40, yellow 6, Blue 2).

And as their tongue gets tangled on some of those ‘ingredients’, a good laugh is had by all!

If you know what this non-organic concoction is, write me. I PROMISE I WON’T SEND IT  to the winner!

“Who wants to make a poor food confession? Who of you has wandered into a Chevron FOOD Mart lookin’ for food? Find any? Well, take this $15.00 Gift Card and wander on down the street to STADIUM THRIFTWAY get yourself some Organic GOOD FOOD!” www.stadiumthriftway.com

“My Good Food Friend and Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Artist Ambassador, Pastor Gary L. Wyatt, is the Pastor of the baddest Church in Tacoma, SureHouse!  Where you ALWAYS  FEEL BETTER WHEN YOU LEAVE THAN WHEN YOU ARRIVED! And that’s how it’s supposed to work, isn’t it! Well, he may be a Nationally recognized Gospel Artist, having written a few over 1000 songs and Produced and Starred in a couple dozen CDs, DVDs and Vidoes, been on TV and the Seattle Symphony, Pastored all ‘round the World, but when I first met Pastor Wyatt, what he knew about Organics is that it started with an ‘O’!”

“Several years back, Dennis brought me some Organic Good Food and told me some Stories. He brought me some more Organic Good Food and told me some more Stories. ALWAYS the STORIES! I KNEW my change was comin’! So I wrote a song for Change Your Food – Change Your Life! called ‘Til My Change Comes. It tells of HOPE, HEALTH and A GOOD LIFE AHEAD. ‘Til My Change Comes turns out to be a brand new genre, GOOD HEALTH GOSPEL. In fact, we filmed LIVE ‘Til My Change Comes for the final track on my “Impeccable Worship” DVD … Dennis and I have done a couple of Radio Shows and TV Shows introducing GOOD HEALTH GOSPEL to a wide Audience. We even filmed LIVE ‘Our BIG LIVE Radio Show!

23

So, I want to Prophesize to someone this mornin’ that there is a change comin’ … I want you to turn to your neighbor and tell them, there is a change coming!”

The music track comes up and then LIVE, ‘Til My Change Comes

And at the right artistic mark during the song, Pastor Wyatt goes over and speaks directly to an Audience Member and says, “Make your change … here’s a $15 Gift Card from STADIUM THRIFTWAY!”

“To get you started on your Journey of Discovery and Good Health, your Swag Bags were FILLED

And that EINKORN Ancient Grain by jovial® is interesting. When Ötzi the Icemanwas discovered 5,000 years later in the Italian Alps, his last meal had been preserved and contained EINKORN Wheat. jovial® Foods has propagated enough EINKORN Ancient Grain to bring it to market and to your plate. EINKORN is Wheat as Wheat WAS at the very beginning of agriculture, the FIRST domesticated from wild by humans at the very beginning of agriculture! www.jovialfoods.com

25

bionaturæ® and jovial® FOODS are sister Italian Companies and are REAL PASTA MAKERS! MOST pastas are formed using stainless steel or Teflon® lined extruding equipment, producing a smooth and slippery pasta surface. bionaturæ® and jovial® use age-old bronze which roughens the surface just a bit and holds that olive oil and pasta sauce right where it should be!

26

Those jovial® Cookies are made with EINKORN Ancient Grains, too: Crispy Cocoa, Checkerboard and Ginger Spice! Dip one of those in an ice-cold glass of Organic Milk!

27

Who of you got those UliMana™ Dark Chocolate Peppermint Truffles? Hold your hands up. Pastor, SEE who they are?

They break it off the mine face in these gorgeous pearlescent clusters, crush it and put in right in the shakers. Not even rinsed. Brings up all the Earth’s trace minerals. REDMOND RealSalt® is salt as FOOD! www.RealSalt.com

“Why is it SO IMPORTANT to know  HOW to LIVE The Organic Good Food Life?

… it’s so that you can walk RIGHT PAST ALL the ads and ALL the magazines in EVERY store … an EVER GREATER NUMBER of magazines whose covers are EMBLAZONED with diet gimmicks … so that TELEVISION ADS enticing you with a magical, mystical quick fix won’t tempt you … and so that RADIO COME-ONS won’t excite you with their product, pill and potion talk!

Change your food, change your life … begin LIVING The Organic Good Food Life and the rest of your life just may be the BEST of your life! You’ll have no anxiety. You’ll feel better than when you began … you’ll probably look better, have more energy and be a few pounds lighter! Well then …why not … ” I turn to Pastor Wyatt and Pastor Wyatt immediately finishes it with “CHANGE YOUR FOOD … CHANGE YOUR LIFE … FOREVER!!!!!!” and then goes right into … LIVE from his keyboard … and takes ‘em on home with GO-O!

After all the SONGS, STORIES, TESTIMONIALS, GIFT CARDS, RANTS, RIFFS and non-organic poor food throwaways, “Ya can’t trust the Quaker!,” “Six Sinister Sulfites – The Story of Two Apricots,” “When a bean is not a BEAN!,” and “If you buy non-organic MISSION® Flour Tortillas, always buy two packs, one for your kitchen and one for your bathroom!”, we end with this:

“We would hope you all took today’s comments seriously because they affect the quality of your life … its livability! Change Your Food – Change Your Life! … it’s fun, it’s easy, it’s simple and it is DELISH!  It’s not a diet, you’re not denied, you’re not deprived and you certainly don’t lack for a variety of tastes and textures … there are 1000’s of healthful, wholesome Organic Good Foods you’ll find on you’re Journey of Discovery and Good Health.

The Evergreen State College Tacoma Campus has a wonderful, and quite moving, Tradition called Give-Back. After the Guest Lecturer, Presenter, or in our case, a SHOW, you’re asked to sit in a chair in front of the Audience as they are then asked by their Campus Director, Dr. Tryus Smith, to comment directly on what they heard, how they might incorporate what they heard into their life, how they may incorporate what they heard in their chosen profession.

“You were an inspiration.”

“You have changed my life. THANK YOU!”

“You raised our level of consciousness … now we have to make a decision, have to make our minds up to do something about it!

“I’ve seen Organics in stores and used to walk right by them, won’t do that anymore!”

“God works in mysterious ways. Driving up to Campus this evening, I was talking about my weight and about how I need to change my diet, but didn’t know how or where to start. And THEN I heard The Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show. NOW I know!”

“Your message was the most important and best presentation of the year.” – Evergreen State College Tacoma Campus Professor.

“I never knew all the stuff that was in non- organic products.”

“I’ll take the 30 day challenge, I started with organic eggs and now I want to move on because of you.”

“Your message needs to be told … over and over again … to EVERYONE!”

“Changed my whole perspective on ‘food’. THANK YOU!”

“I want to change while I still can!”

“Thank you for bringing this message to our community. It is much needed.”

A FUN one: Everyone got a Swag Bag full of Organic Good Food Gifts of Good Health upon arriving for the Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Show.

43

So a Student stands up, holding high a box of jovial® FOODS EINKORN Ancient Grain Checkerboard Cookies and says, “Thanks for the picnic!”, causing a BIG, ROUSING ROUND OF APPLAUSE for ALL the Organic Good Foods!

IMG_5582

We had been invited to stay at Pastor Wyatt’s beautiful Guest House after the Shows rather than having to drive back to Seattle that evening.

Pastor Wyatt had a surprise all set up when he greeted us the next morning, saying we’re going to do something FUN: An on-the-spot reality video around their kitchen table! His Wife, Cheryl, turned on the Video camera and … it was LIVE as it HAPPENED!    No edits or do-overs!  ENJOY!
