Comfort Food on Beyond Organic Radio

For many people, the phrase “comfort food” conjures up images of hearty portions of meat and potatoes or the smells of rich cakes and cookies just coming out of the oven.

Vegetarian chef Eric Tucker is no stranger to this philosophy, creating healthy veggie cuisine that leaves patrons of San Francisco's award-winning Millennium restaurant well satisfied.

Join host Jerry Kay, as we discuss the emotional, nutritional and even biological connections that we have with comfort cuisine, learn about healthy alternatives and see how Slow Food USA is mapping America’s traditional regional foods.

I think comfort food is something we learn over time to associate. For instance, I have always craved sweets - particularly chocolate! Once I started eating more whole foods and fresh fruits and vegetables, those cravings began to disappear. My body was the getting the nutrients it needed and learned to crave the good stuff! :)

Pizza Fusion is ‘Saving the Earth, One Pizza at a Time’

Natural and organic pizza franchise giving back to the environment with eco-friendly operations

Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Monday, February 12, 2007 – Pizza Fusion (, a new natural and organic pizza franchise, is taking environmental protection into their own hands with an Earth friendly approach to all of their operations. From the creation of their organic food menu to its delivery to the consumer in company owned hybrid vehicles, every aspect of Pizza Fusion was designed to preserve and improve the environment.

“Today, there are too many companies taking from the Earth without giving back. We want to change that,” Michael Gordon, co-proprietor of Pizza Fusion, explains. “Pizza Fusion was founded in the best interest of the environment and the individual. By serving healthy, organic food with a commitment to the preservation of our fragile ecosystem, we hope to set an example for others to follow.”

Pizza Fusion’s environmental efforts include using only eco-friendly cleaners to sanitize their stores, providing eco-apparel, such as organic cotton uniforms, to their employees, using recycled products whenever possible and recycling their wastes. Even the company’s website is hosted by a ‘Green Web Hosting’ service provider that uses renewable energy wind power to offset the energy usage of their servers.

Pizza Fusion offers a variety of sandwiches, wraps, salads, desserts, beer and wine all made with the freshest, all natural and organic ingredients. However, their specialty is organic, gourmet pizza available with a variety of unique toppings, such as Wild Caught Key West Shrimp, New York Strip Steak, Proscuitto, Portobello Mushrooms, Artichokes and Arugula (to name a few). Pizza Fusion also serves a Multigrain Crust as a carb-conscious alternative.

Founders Michael Gordon and Vaughan Lazar took their appreciation for the pie one step further to allow individuals afflicted with food allergies or following selective diets to enjoy their organic pizza menu. By offering gluten-free crust, sufferers of Celiac’s Disease can indulge at Pizza Fusion. For their lactose intolerant friends they offer ‘Follow Your Heart’ Soy Mozzarella (containing no casein) which is also a favorite of the Vegan community and is a key ingredient in Pizza Fusion’s ‘Very Vegan Pizza’.
