Eat Less Water in the NEWS

Three is a charm.

This week three interviews featured Eat Less Water. Just in case you missed any, here are the links:


CBS Morning News 8 Reporter Heather Myers, expertly interviewed me on San Diego’s highest rated news show. Here is the link to the program titled, How Much Water Does It Take to make Your Favorite Foods.


CBS featured a few of my favorite water-wise foods. Most available at your area grocery store or online.


Lotus Foods rice, (Organic/System of Rice Intensification), Taza Chocolate (Organic Direct-trade), Tequila Alquimia (Organic/Dry-Farmed almost Biodynamic), Organic Pastures butter (Organic Holistic-Managed)



Producer from the much loved NPR show, GOOD FOOD came across Eat Less Water on the shelf of a Santa Monica bookstore. She loved the cover (as much as we try not to, we judge a book by its cover) and purchased the book. Shortly after she invited me on the air to discuss the water footprints of food for the Water Show. Here is the link.

*Green is the color designation by water researchers for rain and moisture, versus blue water, water from the aquifers, reservoirs, and rivers. Purchasing food utilizing more green water is more water-sustainable because it doesn’t drain water from finite groundwater supplies or from stressed reservoirs. ORGANIC Agriculture methods that use more green water are the following:

  • Rain-fed
  • Dry-farmed
  • Holistic-managed (aka mob grazed, rotationally-grazed)
  • Biodynamic
  • System of Rice Intensification (SRI)
  • No-Till

These are all farming methods discussed in Eat Less Water. For an autographed copy, purchase Eat Less Water from independent bookstore, Book Catapult. Be sure to ask for an autographed copy (limited copies).


What do I and His Holiness, the Dalai Lama have in common? We both had the good fortune of being interviewed by Maureen Cavanaugh, host of KPBS Midday Edition. At one point in the interview, Maureen told me, “no more eggs” (that part was edited out of the interview), my favored example during the interview to explain every concept.

Sorry Maureen, I had eggs on the brain as I prepared for my Follow That Chef cooking class featuring my Green Eggs Quiche Recipe.

Below are the eggs I featured in the chapter Eggs and Water.
