A Good Food Friend of ours, Gage Mitchell, the very creative Co-Founder of MODERN SPECIES www.ModernSpecies.com, a very hip BRANDING Company, was assigned this challenging  task: Their Client ALTER ECO® asked MODERN SPECIES to make something COOL out of their ALTER ECO® Quinoa Pouch Made From Compostable Materials.

Pouch packages are hugely popular—but they’re not recyclable, meaning they go straight to the landfill. The patent-pending packaging is made from birch and eucalyptus wood pulp, non-GMO corn and non-toxic ink. That’s nice, but so what. HOW do you get the public interested in compostables?

Upon my return to Seattle, I was having Dinner with my Good Food Friends, Kristin & Eric, of CROFTER’S® ORGANIC Fruit Spreads  www.CroftersOrganic.com and I was telling Eric about these new ORGANIC PB&J Snack Sands without the crust  by LUV ME foods that I had discovered at ExpoWEST. Eric said his Wife, coincidently, had eaten some non-organic version of those PB&J’s, the only PB&J snack sans without the crust she could find when she didn’t want to make ‘em herself. Right at the table, Eric texted his Wife http://luvmefoods.co. Her IMMEDIATE text back: “OMG!!!! BEST NEWS OF MY LIFE! MY LIFE IS COMPLETE!!!”

You just can’t buy some land, build a barn, buy a couple of shovels, a rake, a John Deere and some Organic Seed and expect to get rich as an Organic Farmer. From time to time, you’ll NEED to make a call or two to The Organic Farming Research Foundation to HELP you get there!

We wouldn’t have the Organic Good Foods we have today and in such abundance without the ‘good works’ of The Organic Farming Research Foundation.

So, now comes YOUR time to invest in Organic Good Foods and the Organic Farmers that bring it to you. Here’s a pen. You know what to do next!

 Black Republican Shrub CocktailShrub is a colonial-day drink, using a concentrated syrup made of fruit, vinegar and sugar.

23

These shrub drinks featured the Black Republican Cherry, a Slow Food Ark of Taste product, which were grown Organically at Tamiyasu Orchards in Hood River, OR, and Peak Forest Fruit in Banks, OR. Chef Timothy Wastell, from Firehouse Restaurant in Portland, OR, preserved them as a shrub since being picked in July. It was served with Organic Whiskey from KOVAL Organic Distillery.

The Lewelling Brothers brought the first Black Republican Cherry Trees to the Oregon Territory in 1847. The fruit is small, deep purple in color with an intense Black Cherry flavor. It is also the parent of the Bing Cherry. Today, Black Republican Cherry Plantings are rare, with only about 200 acres remaining in older and smaller orchards in The Dalles and Hood River growing Districts of Oregon, and even fewer in Washington, California and Eastern States.

And YES, a few were SERVED and ENJOYED!!!!!

PERSONALLY GUIDED ORGANIC GOOD FOOD SHOPPING TOURS

Personally Guided Organic Good Food Shopping Tour  PCC 006

My Good Food Friends –

• PERSONALLY GUIDED ORGANIC GOOD FOOD SHOPPING TOURS •

We make it real easy for you to ENJOY Organic Good Foods all day, every day, even if you’re on the run, a single parent, a harried soccer Mom & Dad, a gourmet or an “I hate to cook” type.

Conducted by Dennis L. Weaver, Your Good Food Guide

The Personally  Guided Organic Good Food SHOPPING Tour introduces the concept of feeling good, by making Organic Good Food Choices, to people who are concerned about their health and lifestyle, but don’t know how or where to start.

We will recommend a Store in your neighborhood. We show you how to use the Store. We show you how to make very simple changes in your food choices that will help you look good and feel good.

With good-natured humor, solid information and real-life stories to inform, encourage, coach and inspire you, we open a whole new World of Organic Good Food Choices. You’ll learn how to choose foods that are life-giving, NOT life-diminishing … the ONLY foods that let you live with a zest and zeal for life. Feel the way you were designed to feel!

Because, what you don’t know about your food could hurt you!

The TOUR is designed to be FUNMEMORABLE … INFORMATIVEENCOURAGING. The TOUR is an Organic Good Food Choices SEMINAR on ‘two legs.’ It’s a walking, talking, tasting, having-a-good-time learning experience … POSITIVE, LIFE-CHANGING!

From non-organic

From non-organic Tully’s coffee to BRAGG® Liquid Aminos in one step! Now, THAT’S Tour POWER!

 Learn to spot label lies!

Linda, after being caught up in the DELISH FUN of The Tour, said, “This is going to be my  personal treat: A slice of MANNA© Organics Sprouted Whole Grain ‘Fruit & Nut’ Manna Bread® with ORGANIC VALLEY® Family of Farms Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese and topped with Italian bionaturæ® Organic Apricot Fruit Spread!”

And if we would have found a bottle of BADGER MOUNTAIN Organic Port, we would have continued the Tour over at Linda’s house!

Well this year, it’s From Booze to BANANAS!

Here’s the layout:

Thousands of Exhibitors and nearly 75,000 in attendance! You can see how hard I had to work to bring you this Story. And YEAH, my eyes are blurry, too!

A never-ending maze of FOOD!

If you were concerned that I was all right and being taken care of while doing this HARD WORK for you, not to worry. Here were my digs in the exclusive  PRESS Room:

CONGRATULATIONS to UNCLE MATT’S® Organic!

for being on the GOOD JUICE  for 15 Years!

There was cake …

and his MOM was there, too!

20

The Juice that made him FAMOUS!

21

And what a CELEBRATION it was!!!! 15 SUCCESSFUL Years, their NEW Orange-Mango Juice Blend and BAINBRIDGE Organic Legacy Vodka!

22

I brought the bottle of BAINBRIDGE Organic Legacy Vodka because there should be nothing but THE BEST  forTHE BEST, which ORGANIC ALWAYS  IS! BAINBRIDGE Distiller’s Organic Legacy Vodka was recently named ‘The WORLD’S BEST VODKA’ by the World Vodka Awards. Over 1000 brands from 25 countries were entered in the competition, which held its awards presentation, February 20th, at the luxurious Palm Court, in London’s Waldorf Hilton. www.BainbridgeDistillers.com

And how about an UNCLE MATT’S Organic Grapefruit Pale Ale, too!

YEAH, it was a PAAARTAAY!  I think there was an Exhibitor next door trying to chat-up some kind of granola with a few ‘fact sheets’, but they got lost in the aisle-dancin’! Matt called it doin’ the BAINBRIDGE Mango-Tango!

37

WOW!

Know WHY they’re called Fruit Spreads and can’t be called  jams, jellies or preserves?  ‘Cause CROFTER’S® ORGANIC Fruit Spreads have TOO MUCH FRUIT and not enough sugar!

On Sunday, I was wearing my Change Your Food – Change Your Life! GOOD FOOD TOUR i AM what i EAT! T-shirt, and this guy was reading the back of it: “I changed my life at … Health Care in Communities of Color, Keys to Healthy Living. MIND, BODY & SOUL. Change Your Food – Change Your Life! Presents: a little singin’ … a little cookin’” He said stop and tell me more. Good he read the T, asked me to stop and that I stopped, because Mark turned out to be an Author and a VERY CREATIVE packager. An inspiring book, “Charlie’s THINKING CHEESE™”, packaged with inspirational note cards and envelopes, inspirations for everyday, stickers and ‘Pure & Simple Recipes, Filled with Fast & Tasty Treats!’ Makes for a really nice gift.

Upon my return to Seattle, I introduced his unique work to my FAVE children’s book Author, Katherine Pryor of “Sylvia’s Spinach”.

I KNOW the two of them will get along quite well.  www.facebook.com/SylviasSpinach, twitter.com/ReadYourGreens

Now, I like chips as much as the next guy, but after having 221 varieties of chips shoved my way … besides, the best deal on the fair grounds is ALWAYS  QUE PASA® Organic Tortilla Chips … I started to look for something DIFFERENT! And I FOUND IT!

45

NOT those dried banana chips, but banana snacks, soft, moist and chewy!

46

47

And the Chocolate Covered … well …

48

Even their case packaging is FUN!

GALACTIC from New Orleans was one of the hardest drivin’ funk-jazz-blues Bands I’ve heard in quite a while!

And then another day starts all over again!
