RX Newsletter | Alice Waters, a couple takedowns, and hempeh 🍂

People are Talking About

I’m Investigating

  • Carmelite Water, an herbal beverage recipe from the 1600s that I’m modifying to make alcohol-free.
  • Ritual: These vitamins are wonderfully well-branded, always in my Instagram feed, and so not worth the money that when offered a free month of them, I declined. For example, I recently started taking B12 (commonly deficient in vegans though something I’m testing for clients, not taking because I believe I’m low). My daily dose is 3,000mcg. Ritual advertises that their vitamin contains the brain-, nerve- and energy-supportive vitamin. At, though ... only 8mcg/dose. (Here’s the brand I’m using.)
  • More Michael Pollan because ...

“The sheer novelty and glamor of the Western diet, with its seventeen thousand new food products every year and the marketing power - thirty-two billion dollars a year - used to sell us those products, has overwhelmed the force of tradition and left us where we now find ourselves: relying on science and journalism and government and marketing to help us decide what to eat."
