I didnt mention it but I was so happy earlier when they wrote on their website (posted in January) one of the best things of 2006 was the raw sandwiches at 720-Sprouts.
here it is their list of favorite things - which I will copy - even though its from months ago, cause it makes me so happy reading it again:

On that breeze, here are some of our favourite delights and discoveries of 2006:

  • Raw sprouted earth-bread sandwiches at Toronto Sprouts
  • Blueberry Kombucha Tea at Live CafĂ©
  • Finding Reishi mushrooms in our forest
  • The Ringing Cedars of Russia books – especially the chapter on The Seed as Physician (
  • Phytoplankton
  • Roof Top Gardens growing in the city (one hotel restaurant saves $30,000 per year by growing many herbs and produce on it’s roof).
  • This Walden quote: If you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams, and endeavor to live the life you have imagined, you will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. You will pass an invisible boundary, new universal and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves you and you will live with the license of a higher order of beings. If you built castles in the air, your work need not be lost, that is where they should be, now put the foundation under them.
  • Finding wolf tracks in the snow

  • Ron & Nadine are bringing are bringing Leif, their new baby boy tonight.

    But back to our sandwiches - if anyone reading comes to To, or is in Toronto & hast tried.. or just hasn't had them in awhile - get one or several, they are great! Our raw (dehydrated) bread is a phenomenon just waiting to take off.. its serious. I have a waiting list of people wanting to buy the bread.. we cant make it fast enough.. but we only have 1 dehydrater, its huge - but there is only one. I have listened to so many jokes about this - sorry, no I cant sell it.
    But this is the kind of place I work in.. and about the bread.. we are working on it.

    so many things on my mind! little time ok, picture postcards - here goes:
    Erikas raw workshop-lecture Monday eve - I helped in the kitchen, very fun - her 3rd workshop in a series of 8 , this one was on marinated and lacto-fermented foods. (I will post more later)

    Kops on Queen - great vinyl & cd store - new cd, spur of the moment trip, after a suggestion from another! dj friend of mine ( I am starting a collection ; )
    B-Music - Cross Continental Record Raid Road Trip
    Kaiya later "What are you listening to????!!!" (Having teenagers is great - I just humour them)

    more socks from Groovy!! ( some of the littlest & wackiest things make me happy!)

    oh, postcard image - on Queen W. - an Asian girl walking 2 small white fluffy dogs - one has a blue sweater and 4 little brown boots, the other has a red sweater and 4 little pink boots. crazy cute!

    Oh, rushing like crazy (speeding) to get to meditation class last night( thats just so wrong!!) & it made me laugh.. great talk with John, looking forward to next year!!! (that was just for him - he says he reads every day! yay! love you! - was so happy to see you again! )
    chanting meditation - that was great - different - its usually silent.

    Lauren Hill remix of Bob Marley - Real loud - driving home..
    Ah.. too much time looking for it on YouTube

    Osho reading at the cacao Loft - I got the best card - No-thingness (its all black), actually there were a few great cards - Dennis got The Master, Ruben - Sorrow, Mattieu - Existence and 1 card in the middle - amazing card - Flowering - so colorful and beautiful amidst all our cards - I watched a movie a couple nights ago about the artwork of Alex Grey - CoSM - a painting looked just like this card ..will find it later.. have to run now

    Flowering thought to leave you with- (its an open & run quote)

    "Zen wants you living, living in abundance, living in totality, living intensely - not at the minimum as Christianity wants you too, but at the maximum, overflowing. Your life should reach to others. Your blissfulness, your benediction, your exstacy should not be contained within you like a seed. It should open like a flower and spread its fragrance to all and sundry - not only to friends but to the strangers too.
    This is real compassion, this is real love: sharing your enlightenment, sharing your dance of the beyond"
