I went in search of the meaning of art Saturday and found it in a Santa Monica gallery. Art is a mound of rotting cantaloupes on the floor. Art is a machine you blow into that lights up and belches. Art is a collage of blobs painted with chocolate. I know I once said that art was a hundred used tires piled in the entryway of L.A.'s Convention Center by a famous Japanese artist. But that was yesterday's definition. This season, art is related to food and, like food, is transitory in nature.

You may have eaten wheat grass sprouts with health-minded friends or even swallowed a murky green glass of nutritious wheat grass juice. Wheat grass is sprouted wheat berries; it looks like long, healthy lawn grass in need of a good mowing. The juicing process requires a special machine, and the resulting juice has a very short shelf life, but the grass itself makes a natural-looking Easter basket or springtime centerpiece. It's easy to grow in plastic-lined baskets.

In his movie "Annie Hall," Woody Allen pokes fun at what his character considers typical California fare: alfalfa sprouts and mashed yeast sandwiches. But, to Rick Sokol and Jerry Weiss, two of North County's largest sprout growers, sprouts are no laughing matter. Alfalfa sprouts, as well as dozens of other varieties such as wheat grass and buckwheat, are big business not only in North County but across the United States.

Although halitosis was long thought to be an incurable affliction, in recent years researchers have learned that bad breath can be treated, not simply camouflaged. The breakthrough came in recent years as scientists began to prove that, contrary to popular belief, bad breath rarely, if ever, stems from the digestive tract, but is due instead to excessive buildup of bacteria on the tongue, teeth and gums.
