    Episode 0043 - PlateRate

    Episode 0043 - PlateRate

    Where to eat? That's the question. It's a question that's even more complicated when you're trying to satisfy the tastes of a group. Review sites like Yelp or Google are no help. They're weighted down by competing interests, evil business models and a need to appeal to the lowest common denominator. 

    That's where PlateRate comes in. PlateRate is a review platform dedicated to food. In this episode of The Foodcast, we learn about how PlateRate works and why you should be using it.

    Episode 0042 - The Episode 0042 Episode

    In an ongoing series that proves that food is medicine, we meet John Baumann. At the height of his career as a corporate attorney, John learned that he had Parkinson's Disease and needed to prepare for the neurological decline that comes with that disorder. John and his wife Bernadette chose to fight back, literally and figuratively with lifestyle changes that would benefit any of us. And with Bernadette's help, they cracked the code for affordable healthful eating. 

    I welcome you to meet Bernadette and John Baumann on this episode of The Foodcast.

    Episode 0041 - This Episode is Brought to You by the Letter "O"

    This episode of The Foodcast is brought to you by the letter "O." Have you heard the latest? Coconut Oil is not healthy and never was? What do we do now? Also, we take another deep dive into the world of herbs and spices. This time our victim is Oregano. Finally, in the next installment of "What in the Actual Fudge is..." we examine COQ10 a mysterious supplement that's gaining in popularity but nobody knows why. And of course, there's the usual references to bad television, movies and music.

    Episode 0040 - Not A Throwaway

    Episode 0040 - Not A Throwaway

    Stop eating beef, pork and chicken and our environmental problems will be solved. At least that's what films like Cowspiracy want you to believe. Make no mistake about it, farm animals have a huge environmental footprint. But, in fact, when you consider everything we eat and the way we eat it, meat and other animal products barely scratch the surface.

    In this episode of The Foodcast, we look at the big picture and explore how the entire farm-to-table lifecycle effects our planet. Maybe the farm isn't the best place to start. Then, I speak to three entrepreneurs who are focusing on a different and very sensible place and they're doing so in an innovative way. All this and the usual shenanigans right here on The Foodcast.

    Episode 0039 - GRAS, Weed, Herb and Grass

    What does an obscure but insidious FDA rule, marijuana, mint, wheat and the wisdom of Carl Spackler have in common? Probably nothing. But they are all interesting and entertainingly related to health and wellness. In this episode of The Karma Sense Foodcast, we explore a loophole in FDA regulations that allows food manufacturers to slip anything they want into our food system, the health benefits of marijuana, the value of incorporating mint into your diet and what in the actual fudge is wheat grass.

    Episode 0020 - Fight Hunger

    Impossible tasks are often metaphorically described as "fighting world hunger." But is fighting world hunger really impossible? Maybe. But what if we think globally but act locally? In this episode of The Foodcast we look at the local challenges to fighting hunger, we interview Rana Abu Ghazaleh, Project Manager with the City of Alexandria, VA. Rana worked with the city government, farmer's and citizens to create a system that optimizes access to fresh food for low-income families. Then, Davey H does a first person exploration of the work Rana and her team has done.
