We went to our friend’s organic farm last Monday and picked 19 pounds of strawberries. Nineteen pounds.
Woo hoo! We’ve been eating strawberries three times a day, my hands are stained red with strawberry juices, I’m telling you, it is All Strawberries All The Time.
Let’s see, we’ve had strawberry shortcake…
I don’t exactly feel this qualifies as truth-in-advertising, because honestly everything, including, like, dirt, tastes fucking fantastic after a fast…BUT, the kim chee I made last week turned out to be AMAZING. Dialing my enthusiasm down a notch to account for the post-fasting food mania and we’ll say, “Hey, the kim chee turned out [...]
Yeah, I totally made me some kim chee yesterday.
*struts around feeling all powerful and domestic*
It looks SO DELICIOUS. I can’t wait to eat it! But wait I must because 1) kim chee is a fermented food, and to ferment takes a bit of time, and 2) Paul and I [...]
And….yeah, so, somehow I, the chocoholic, planned a JUICE FAST with Paul for the week-end of chocolate bunnies. I am stupid. It was because Paul had some time off from work and it seemed like that would be a good time to do it and I totally forgot about the [...]
I know, I know, not that long ago I was going on and on about my moka pot and the delicious syrupy goodness of a well made cafe cubano. Well, I, too, thought I was content with the status quo. Seriously, I was not in the market for a new coffee maker. But then [...]
I’ve never had a particularly strong constitution, but ever since I had children I’m prone to feeling very, very tired. One could easily say, yes, parenthood takes a lot out of you. But then I did that juice fast last year and wow, did it make a difference in my energy level. And since I’ve [...]
Ten days, no solid food, just water and fresh made juice from fruits and veggies. [insert Rocky theme music here!] That’s right, Paul and I did it, and we didn’t tear each other’s heads off, nor did we slather kids in butter and sugar and eat them. Although we were tempted. Several times.
Here’s how [...]
Short version: diet makes a huge difference in health, and in an asana practice. Huge.
After watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead last winter (my post here with a link to the movie) we were pretty fired up to try a juice fast. If you’ve seen the movie (and you haven’t, don’t wait another second, you totally should), you’ll completely understand that statement. It is a very inspiring movie. [...]
[ETA: six month review update link below.]
Breakfast this morning:
I admit, it doesn’t look that appealing unless you realize I JUICED IT ALL in my handy dandy new BIRTHDAY JUICER. Mwa ha ha ha! My super health will know no bounds!
Why look, here is the Birthday Juicer now, doesn’t [...]

- "Dusi's Wings" April, 2003. . . . "One thing fantasy can do for us is to give shape to the mysterious in the world; another is to make emotional yearning concrete. The early sections of "Dusi's Wings" do just that...there was a strong grasping towards the spiritual in fantasy here that was very promising, and I look forward to reading more by Lassiter." --review, Tangent Online.
