Open only two weeks, Dogpatch Caffe is a surprising discovery at San Francisco’s newest terminal.
On a recent trip,, I had the good fortune to fly into SFO’s new terminal. Spacious and well lit, at late evening, many of the retail stores and dining establishments were already closed. But like a bright beacon, I suddenly spied organic fresh food ahead.

In 2006, in an effort to modernize and broaden its appeal to a wider urban customer base, Walmart announced it was launching a push to sell more organic food. And although numerous consumer groups met the announcement with some skepticism, a number of manufacturers rushed to create organic versions of their products to meet the megaretailer’s demands.
Six years later, it’s interesting to look at how successful Walmart has been.

Antioxidant-rich superfoods may help you live longer, healthier lives
Finding good quality snacks can be a challenge.
Narrowing things down to foods with ingredients that are considered “superfoods” helps. Broadly defined, these are unprocessed foods that help you lead a healthy lifestyle – that may help maintain or reduce your weight, fight illness or disease and maybe even live longer.
There are those who swear by raw foods, a group I’m not necessarily one of. But after trying Navitas Naturals Blueberry Hemp Superfood Power Snack, I’m at least partially leaning that direction.

Almost every industry generates some kind of waste, the majority of which often ends up in landfills. The surfboard industry is no exception.
The powdery dust created by shaping a surfboard from a slab of polyurethane foam has now been transformed into a new, super useful product called SPILLINEX™, which can quickly absorb harmful chemical waste.

Green Polka Dot Box - for healthy food at more affordable prices
The importance of eating healthy is all over the news. And the benefits of eating organic continue to be touted. The problem for many is the elevated cost.
A new buyer’s club for organic and natural foods will officially launch in the next few weeks. Called Green Polka Dot Box. it will feature the same quality products you’d expect to find at any quality natural foods supermarket like Whole Foods, but for a lot less. To quote a colleague of mine, it’s like Costco online without the hassle of having to go there.
