But wait, there’s more…

If last night was any indication, then we should be attending every event associated with the launch of the movie Fresh.

My husband Joe and I went to raw vegan restaurant Pure (http://bit.ly/arDdbN) and tried the Farm to Table dinner tasting menu (created specifically to benefit Fresh). It was amazing. A salad of shaved fennel, an italian almond tart stuffed with fennel and cherry tomatoes, celeriac risotto with black truffle and lemon cheesecake with dried cherries and lemon thyme.  In short, delish. My hat goes off to the chef at Pure. And Karen. And Becky. And everyone else at Pure.

So, why do I bring this up? Well, I am always telling my clients that the healthiest most sustainable way to eat is to go with the F.L.O.W.  Eat fresh, local organic and whole foods. It really takes the guesswork out of everything. Of course, sometimes trying to go with the flow can be as challenging for some of my budding chefs as matching a belt and shoes can be for my husband.

Pure is a great example of what can happen when you commit to eating as healthy as possible, and Fresh is a great example of why you should be vigilant about what you eat. So they’re a natural pair.

Up next, Fresh has two exciting kick-off events on April 1st. The first is Ana Lappe’s Diet for a Hot Planet book launch from 6:30-7:30 at The New School’s Wollman Auditorium, 65 West 11th street, 5th floor, NYC.  The event is free but reservations are required. Get yours by emailing dhplaunch@gmail.com.

Then it’s off to Brooklyn for a wine and cheese reception in front of a sixty foot ant sculpture at hot new gallery, The Invisible Dog. Ana Sofia Joanes (the director of Fresh) will be there at 6:30. The wines will be carbon neutral and, while there will be wine glasses available for $2, feel free to bring your own. Tickets are $25 and everyone who attends will receive a voucher to see Fresh at the Quad Cinema April 9-15.

Hit them both if you can, or pick one and know that you’re doing your part to make the world a better place. And tell your friends. Shouldn’t they be doing their part as well?

See you there.
