Eat Pastry cookie dough: yum in a tub

 
The video literally speaks for itself, but the bottom line is that I love Eat Pastry cookie dough. It's one of the rare instances when you can judge a book by it's cover, because you can tell from the packaging that it's going to be delicious. Meeting Jessie, the co-owner and chef, sealed the deal, and I fell in love with the company.


Favorite flavor: Chocoholic (tastes like a brownie and a cookie got married!)
Organic: partially
Fair Trade: sugar is
Healthy: healthier, no preservatives, no GMOs
Eco-friendly: besides being vegan, not really. It's made from plastic #5, which is hard to recycle, but you can definitely reuse it.
 
Check out the website to find out where you can buy it, and to view cute descriptions of each flavor.

A Chemical Reaction: movie

A Chemical Reaction is screening across the country, and will be in Los Angeles this Sunday afternoon. I'm going to try to make it.

A documentary movie that tells the story of one of the most powerful and effective community initiatives in the history of North America. It started with one lone voice in 1984. Dr. June Irwin, a dermatologist, noticed a connection between her patients’ health conditions and their exposure to chemical pesticides and herbicides. With relentless persistence she brought her concerns to town meetings to warn her fellow citizens that the chemicals they were putting on their lawns posed severe health risks and had unknown side effects on the environment.

Tukey and Rhys and numerous other members of the California environmental and health community will be on hand for the screening and a panel discussion. To reserve a seat at the screening, contact Brett Plymale at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 
TICKETS: By donation only ($10 suggested).
February 28th at 1 p.m. at the New Beverly Cinema

Tonight I had the exciting opportunity to attend the NRDC fundraiser featuring James Cameron and his movie Avatar. Although I knew that there were environmental messages in the movie, they didn't really sink in until I heard him speak. He showed 40 minutes of clips from Avatar at Fox Studios (in 3D!) and I had an entirely different emotional reaction then when I saw it in the theater. (It certainly helped that Cameron was sitting just a few rows in front of me!) The first time I saw the movie I was focused on the incredible special effects and the story, and was very impressed by them. This time, after hearing Cameron give a summary of the environmental message prior to the clips, it all became clear and I got chills. In fact, some scenes were very uncomfortable to watch the second time around (spoiler alert: when the magnificent tree falls down).

These tasted great, but they were really oily and gave me and my sister upset stomachs. Maybe we added too much Earth Balance or peanut butter? You can buy The Kind Diet here

I had an incredible time at the Y.O.G.A. for Youth: Gala Fundraiser, which "I AM THE DREAM" campaign benefitted at-risk children throughout the United States. It was my first time visiting the Marrakesh House, and it was wonderful. The event had a great turnout and was attended by some amazing people; there was such a strong, loving energy there. The night was topped off with some delicious food, samples from various vendors, and several inspiring performances.

A few weeks ago, Veggie Grill in El Segundo started testing some new menu items with Daiya cheese. The combination of Veggie Grill and Daiya was too good to ignore, so I headed over last night and tried all 3 dishes: Uptown Nachos, V-Cheeseburger, and Mac-n-Cheese.
