Vegetable News From Around the Interwebs

January 12th, 2012 | Posted by Alison Spath in Short or Sweet

The most exciting thing to report on around here would be the fact that I’ve been eating breakfast cookies all week. After Linda left a comment on an old post, I was reminded how much I use to love this odd yet fabulous oatmeal concoction.

Breakfast Cookie

It’s been a long time! Good thinking, Linda.

I went to my favorite active yoga class for the first time in nearly five months on Monday night, and I don’t think the instructor recognized me.  I wanted to go up to her and say “hi, remember me?” but then I thought she might take one look at my swollen stomach and remind me of the importance of not doing yoga right after you’ve apparently been stuffing yourself for hours on end at an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet.

I had salad for dinner!  Honest!

In short, there are definitely more interesting things going on around the world (wide web) than there are around here.

For instance, I can’t believe I’ve been juicing romaine like some kind of goodie two shoes.

Marijuana juice, anyone?

Duuude <cough cough>, you’ve GOT to drink this.

I can already hear the pot grower who’s being hauled away by FBI agents after they busted the huge crop of pot plants in their basement:

“I was going to juice it!  Honest!”

Sure, buddy. Cuff’em.


Seven Foods You Should Never Eat

Nothing new under the sun for any health conscious foodie who’s been around the block, but I enjoyed skimming the list anyway. Never hurts to be reminded of all the reasons to mostly avoid the foods they mention.  A good read for anyone who’s starting to pay more attention to what put they in their mouth.

And if you didn’t click any of those links, at least click this one and just look at the picture!

Wedding ring found on carrot after 16 years.

If it was the husband who’d found his ring, this never would have made the news. The wife totally would have busted him on secretly buying a second ring 16 years ago and trying to pretend he’d never lost it in the first place. He’d be in the dog house for months and she’d be buying herself a diamond anniversary band and making him take her out to dinner after she’d half-forgiven him.

What a way to ruin a perfectly incredible story about a carrot growing through a long lost ring, eh? You’re welcome. And to think I was thrilled when I found a lost part to my juicer in our compost pile.

    Oh, I love your breakfast cookie. Every time I buy chocolate Silk, I think about making it. I have some in the fridge right now, why haven’t I made it?

    Juiced romaine, yeah, I can’t do that. I juiced for my boss this past summer and her mighty green juice tasted ok, but I could never drink an entire glass of it.
