WOW, have you seen ‘The Story of STUFF’ yet? This was another inbox treat recently and I’ve been LOVING it ever since – it’s a little 20 minute exposé of the inner workings of modern consumer-driven society. The presenter, Annie Leonard, leads us on a highly informative, entertaining, action-packed adventure through the processes of Extraction, Production, Distribution, Consumption and Disposal. You can watch it here: and remember to pass it on – this is powerful ‘stuff’ ;)

on December the 11th I had:

1 quart water
3 cups watermelon/orange juice
big chunk of watermelon
3 cups watermelon/honeydew juice
3 cups green smoothie with chia seeds stirred in: banana/mango/apricot/romaine/kale/mizuna/all-kinds-of-greens
2 cups water
1.5 cups cucumber/celery/carrot/apple/all-kinds-of-greens juice
bowl of green smoothie/chia leftovers with little portion of ‘apple flax’ – blended apples mixed with ground flax, coconut flour and cinnamon powder
