[With added hemp seeds, sprouts, radish, apple and chopped pecans] It’s been a crazy couple of weeks here in the DDD household, what with mega-marking for my classes at the college, a whirlwind trip to Montreal (more on that anon), the regular array of doctor’s appointments, a quick visit for a dental emergency (my molar […]

Green Day:* French Green Soup with Spinach, Lettuce and Peas

*No relation to the band of the same name, of course. [Holy shamrock! That soup really is rather green!] After being on the ACD for a full year now, I must admit to feeling a bit like a basket case (my, time sure does fly when you’re [not] having fungus).  Having cut out poprocks and coke–not to mention […]
