Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

There's a book!

For those of you who aren't getting friendly with me on Facebook, I wanted to let you know that I'm holding in my hands a hot, steamy signed book contract with New Society Publishers, who publish such awesome books as Not Just a Pretty Face, by Stacy Malkan, Peak Everything by Richard Heinberg and Sharon Astyk's books. Needless to say, I'm very excited about the opportunity.

What's it all about, you say? Well, I'll go into greater detail as I get to writing it and will be explaining a lot of what I'm doing for the book on this here blog, but the gist of the book will be related to environmental toxins. I will be embarking on a six month project, exploring all the toxins in my life and, well, the hijinks that ensue. Think comic book hero versus toxic zombies. Okay, it's not that crazy, but it will involve me being a lab test animal.

Anyway, I'll fill you in on it all later, but I just wanted to let you guys know as soon as I sealed the deal!

I imagine it kinda like "Super Size Me." Except "Super Toxify Me."

Congratulations!! Sounds like a very interesting project... Maria Rodale actually just wrote a book called Organic Manifesto that covers some of what it sounds like you'll be studying. Might want to check it out! :)

Best of luck, please keep us updated with what you're working on, it's such an interesting subject.

Just as long as we don't have to bury you in a sustainable composting coffin soon, from insane overwork and pressure.

Dumbass.
