Jamba Juice is about to live up to its name. The Bay Area company is best known for smoothies such as Mango-a-Go-Go and Razzmatazz. But starting Thursday, it's throwing the blender at fresh-squeezed juices and expanding its current lineup of orange, carrot and wheat grass juice to include eight options made with apples, lemons, ginger, pineapples, beets and kale. That includes chilled choices such as a mix of orange, apple, pineapple and ginger, all pressed on the spot. There are also hot juices inspired by Jamba fans in South Korea.

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.

THE California Design Biennial opens Saturday evening in Pasadena, celebrating innovative furniture, graphics, fashion and other consumer products designed in this state during the last two years. Among the highlights: The Los Angeles studio NONdesigns' Topo table, which sports a Corian tabletop fitted with molded plastic elements that can be concave or convex, creating a miniature landscape of hills and valleys.

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.
