Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead

I was selected by BzzAgent to review the Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead video.  This movie is about a man who goes on a 60 day juice cleanse in order to be healthier.

The movie articles his 60 days doing it on his own, and assisting others along the way.  The first 30 days he spent in New York City, while the second 30 days he spends driving across the United States meeting new people and telling them what he is doing.  He loses a lot of weight, and helps a truck driver- who has the same rare condition he has- do the same.

I LOVED this video.  After watching the video previously, I embarked on a juice cleanse of my own.  Three days was as far as I could make it, but I intend to make juicing a regular part of my diet.  If you want information on doing a cleanse of your own, and to speak with other people doing it, go to www.jointhereboot.com.  You can also watch the video at that site as well!  I highly recommend the juicer he uses in the video as well, the Breville Juicer Elite.  After watching the video, we purchased it and it works extremely well for all types of fruits and vegetables, and isn't as loud as past juicers I've used.

Happy 4th of July!

From your friends at Eat Crunchy, may you have a wonderful, safe, and freedom-filled Fourth of July!!

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
- Ronald Reagan

Natural Fruit Fly Trap

Recently, fruit flies invaded Lisa's house! Having left for a long weekend with ripe fruit all around, we returned home to a house with fruit flies. After doing some research and consulting our exterminator, I decided to try a natural approach to trapping fruit flies. At the suggestion of our bug guy, I grabbed a mason jar and poured in about 2 ounces of apple vinegar cider. As I couldn't find the lid to the mason jar, I cut a small hole in the corner of a sandwich bag and inverted it so the tip was about an inch above the apple cider and fastened with a rubber band. (If you have the top of the jar, you can secure saran wrap with a few holes on top instead.)

I cleaned the kitchen and placed two of these traps by where the flies seemed to be gathering, the trash and the drain. After a few days and lots of flies caught, I rinsed out the glass, refilled it, and set the trap again. Afraid it would not be successful, I also purchased traditional sticky fly traps but caught only a few with it. The apple cider vinegar approach was by far the most successful! So if you find yourself plagued by these annoying little bugs, try this trick! (As a side note, our bug guy said if flies are staying by the drain, pouring diluted bleach water down could keep them from populating in the drain.)
