It is mostly ‘stuff’ I do at home — just me rambling about … product reviews, my obsession with green leafies; AND love of my Green JUICIE Green SMOOTHIESEating To Live – the most healthful diet on the planet; living GREEN; Eating high-raw; my beating heart smiley affairย  with sprouts(!!); and sewing, knitting, and my opinions on things related to those … Also a great place for me to store information. Comments are welcomed!

    Nice blog, Strix! A sort of online junk drawer, filled with stuff you have nowhere else to put. What a good idea! Good luck with your move.

        Btw, I am coming to LA on May 25th with my girlfriend then headed to San Diego on the 30th. Let me know if you have time to meetup.

        Would also love to meet any other nutritarians in the area as well!

    Hey Beautiful Woman –

    I finally discovered that you have a blog! What a fun, fun place to wander and I’m very happy to be here.

    How’s life in LA?

    I’m going to be coming through LA in August headed for New Zealand – I’ll probably spend a day or two between flights. Let me know if you’re interested in finally doing lunch on the beach or something.

    I hope life is grand!

      Ah! Kis ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad you’re still around. Sheesh! Haven’t heard from you in ages. I do miss you over at Dr. F.’s forum. Speaking of traveling, end of May I’ll be going on my first road trip! Ack! lol. I have some mini-trips planned for this summer, too. I do need to get out!
      Keep in touch and thanks for posting! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I used to love road trips but it’s been years – I hope you have a blast. You know like old Route 66 kind road trip blast ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve got a wild and woolly summer of travel ahead of me too. B.C., Louisiana, Canadian Rockies (biking – wahoo!), upstate New York, and NZ. None of those are roadtrips though.

    I miss you too. Life is full and I occasionally get to peruse the Forums but I don’t seem to have the time to really engage. I’m in finals – again – seems like they are always creeping up on me.

    Well, I wish you fun, fun, fun roadtrips. And if any of them come through Utah let me know. I know of a terrific guest suite with the best food in town (wink, wink….)

    Cyberhugs –

    Hey LL –

    I’ve got a question for you – and when it comes to greens there’s no opinion I value more!

    I need to start green juicing and in a perfect world do not want to spend $500. on a Greenstar. Do you know of any other juicers that effectively do the job?

    I’ve been watching the local Craigslist in hopes of nabbing one for less money but no Greenstars. There is a Champion though and I don’t know anything about them.

    Mucho gratitude for your valued thoughts on the subject.

      Hey, kis ๐Ÿ™‚

      Not sure how much you want to spend. Do you want a style like the green star and the champion? I know Dr. Fuhrman’s Breville Juice Fountain seems to be popular on the forum, but I have no idea. From what I’ve read, it’s not that great with greens, but sort of a general juicer.

      There are all kinds. Even the manual juicer, which I’m going to be getting for traveling is pretty good for greens. It only does greens, though. There is one, called the Z-Star which supposedly does fruit too; but I don’t know.

      Check out Discount Juicers which has a ton of info and does comparisons and tells about each juicer’s pros and cons and features – (there are two pages there)
      Also check out their manual juicers page.

      Going through that site is really informative.

    Was looking for information on making a sprout bag and landed on your blog. Thank you for giving me that push to make my own sprout bag. I have been sprouting for a number of years and only used a glass jar and fabric. Now I am going to try the bag using some cotton/hemp fabric someone gave me. I grew fava beans two years ago and loved them, after reading your post on chickpea I will grew a few. I am in the southeast and have a moderate winter for growing lots of stuff……..greens.

      Hi, Lemongrass! What a great name, I love lemongrass. Do you grow it? I heard it is easy to grow in a pot.

      Sprout bags are nice and they last long.
      Have fun growing your greens! :^)

    Thanks, Lemongrass is the best. I had lots of lemongrass growing up in the Caribbean and had to grow it. It is very easy to grow in pots or in the ground. Here in the southeast it can be mulched during the winter and would come back next winter. You should try growing it.Check out Yougrowgril.com, there is some information on growing it. I have read some where that it is helpful in riding the body of cancer causing cells.
    It makes a great tea, either winter or summer. I like my teas mild and Lemongrass tea just hits the spot. I sometimes make a strong tea and freeze it in ice trays to use out of season.
    Great information and thanks for being out there for those of us looking.
    Just finished my first sprout bag and will hit it with some day old lentils I have sprouting.

      Awesome! So how were those lentils?!

      • Lemongrass said,

        July 27, 2010 at 3:20 pm

        They were great. I added them to some grated carrots, red onions, cayanne pepper, parsley, lemon juice and olive oil.

        • poxacuatl said,

          Cool! I’ve actually *lightly* dried them and they are a nice addition to a trail-mix type of thingy ๐Ÿ™‚ They are crispy so fit right in.
          Also a nice way to sneak in some goodness to unsuspecting veggie haters — or worse, sprout haters!

    I stumbled onto your blog while I was searching for instructions on how to make your own hemp sprouting bags. I have been slowly changing my families diet and want to incorporate sprouts into our diet but dont want to have to spend $9 on one sprout bag. I absolutely have no idea about sewing so I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind sharing with me your instructions on how to make my own sprouting hemp bag. Thanks a bunch

      Hi! Well, I don’t do my hemp bags by a specific pattern; I make a drawstring bag, and simply embellish as I wish. For example, I make a plain drawstring base — similar to this very basic one — and, I’ll choose what type of seams I want, what type of casing, pockets, etc., and add what I want.
      It’s best for sprout bags to keep it simple, though; so that linked one is perfectly fine. Mine are similar in that most of my embellishments are just embroidery/decorating the outsides, such as in these bags I made.

      If you have a blog/site, I’d love to see how yours come out; or let me know either way ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. ๐Ÿ™‚
