  1. 3 servings of each before I lift. Plenty of Iron & Protein
  2. Wasn't gonna bitch about this but now that I have a moment - I just gotta get this off my chest. We are only in the 2nd week of school & a family on our school bus route has already missed the but once & asked us to watch their kids (kindergartener & 4th grade) this morning because of a a flat tire!?!?!? The mother doesn't work & the f'ing flat tire can wait 5 min untill after the kids are picked up. Here's the deal: If you don't want to take care of your kids then don't f'ing have 4 in the first place. To make matters worse, my kids can't stand their kids....... Oh god, I think it's gonna be a L_O_N_G school year.
  3. Aww yes, the bike crash... my arm is still kinda wonky but it's ok Thanks for asking. We've really enjoyed canning - it's been a lot of fun + we know exactly whats inside.
  4. I think you've got to prioritize your goals. * When I was trying to lose weight - I upped the cardio (jogging 5ks around the neighborhood) and commuting on my bike. * Focused on food intake: Bought a food scale & crunched the calories. Lost approx 80lbs After that: I bought several dumbbells, Kbells & MedBall that can all be stashed under/behind the sofa. ---I have gym phobia (I can't stand them) but occasionally go to the one at my office when I don't have time to work out at home. Now Mantaining: I've taught myself a great deal about nutrition. I'm constantly revamping my outlook on what food is, it's effect the human body & the planet Zuzana is by far my fav to work out with in the privacy of my home Picked up a copy of "Healthy Foods fact vs Fiction" at the library. It's got some great info http://books.google.com/books/about/Healthy_Foods.html?id=KQcYxohCQfUC Good luck
  5. Nice Pictures! How much do they weigh? Here's the baby purples. They are sweet, crunchy & taste great roasted w/EVOO
  6. Had great successes & major losses. Excellent *Artichokes were amazing *Cherry Tomatoes still rocking out the fruit *Heirloom Purple/Orange Carrots producing higher yeilds then expected * Swiss Chard Middle to Fail *Potato crop is lower then expected but better then average. *Sweet purple onions = near failure Failed * My heirloom canning tomatoes (only canned 12 pints) Killed by late Blight - that came early * Spinach * Baby French carrots were eaten by evil bunny
  7. To funny, I view him as fluid, bright, comprehensive, funny & passionate. Most teachers appear stiff but if students going to learn then they have to sit down, open their books & STFU. That being said he is the one responsible for debunking Pluto. --- Pluto will always be the 9th planet to me http://www.theverge.com/2012/3/26/2903224/dr-neil-degrasse-tyson-killing-pluto-on-the-verge
  8. I know about this story but I can't bring myself to read the link. Life is so fragil - I can only hope that the girl will be ok.
  9. Prop 37 is backed by the people of CA. If they want to know then they have the right to know.
  10. The owner left the dog for dead. He gave his up his rights to her when he walked out on her.
  11. Opponents of Proposition 37 claim it would create a costly bureaucracy and lead to frivolous lawsuits. Total contributions to defeat the measure amount to $25 million.

  13. I planted trees in season so that I no longer have to purchase fruit. Plumbs in spring, figs in summer & apples/pears late summer/early fall - then can, dry or freeze If you stop buying fruit from the Grocery store & only eat in season you wont have as many problems. Go seasonal & stop consuming fruit that is shipped tens of thousands of miles.
  14. While hubby & kids were attending a B'day Party - I canned 2012's 1st Maker's Mark Fig Jam I know, fruit is not a veggie but it's SOOOO GOOOD!
