They discuss all aspects of the food world, from seeds and beans to fries and foie gras. “If you can eat it, we want to talk about it”.

The Bite Goes On – Lydia Kindheart

Lydia’s Food We had such a wonderful conversation with Lydia and loved hearing about her upbringing, her food and her philosophy. We caught up with her in Petaluma between trips to Hawaii where she is spending much of her time pruning trees and managing her Petaluma company via the internet and phone. Sounds ideal! Through her brands of food, festival and private catering, restaurants, and community work, Lydia became a forerunner in the Organic, Vegan, and Raw food industries. In continuing to fulfill her vision of creating community gathering space to share food, knowledge and creativity. Lydia opened the Sunflower Center, a restaurant and community center in Petaluma, California in December 2011. Included in her organic food products include her sprouted bars, cereals, crackers, herbs and spices and more. She ships her pantry items across the country and she definitely has some hard to find ingredients. Lydia is successfully living her dreams of offering conscious food as a powerful and personal medium for reconnecting people and the planet. [EP99]
