The Ingredients and Details Make or Break It (You)

April 8, 2011

Katelyn came over yesterday, and we intended to go to the gym. But it didn’t happen. We ate and drank instead. The first thing we tried was totally disgusting. I’m not sure who would drink this—it tasted like the liquid out of a jar of fermented/cultured beets. The label says, “Like Kombucha? Try This!” Please, [...]

Personal Improvement Plan: Round 2, plus Sprouted Mung Bean Socca and Veggie Flour

March 27, 2011

I never did a wrap-up post for round one of my personal improvement plan (PIP), but it did go well. I felt better, looked better, and everything was going well. I wasn’t actually sure when I’d end it, but it happened rather unexpectedly (and I’m taking full responsibility for it!). One day, when a temptation [...]

March 19, 2011

Weekend Experiments

February 21, 2010

Yesterday, I made a smoothie that was similar to the Valentine’s Day smoothie, except I didn’t measure the ingredients, left out the hemp protein powder and cacao, and added about 2 cups of spinach.  I thought it would turn brown…but it didn’t.  It was awesome, didn’t taste the spinach at all, and it was a [...]

Ch-ch-ch-Chia

December 27, 2009

Did you ever have a Chia Pet? My bro-in-law (before he was my bro-in-law) gave one to me for Christmas one year. It was a weird concept—spread seed goo over a ceramic animal (not sure what kind of animal), and then let it sprout and grow. Result: pointless, weird-looking, primarily non-functional clutter–sort of a plant! [...]
