Happy Meals: how happy ARE they?

From Email:   With school starting soon I am feeling lost on what I can buy for treats to take and share with my children’s school  classes.  Our state requires that all treats brought to school are store bought.   I just can’t seem to find anything I want my kids to eat that is […]

more edibles, and the book tour

Did you know the leaves of your squash, cucumber, and cabbage plants are edible?   (You probably already knew the leaves of grape, radish, beet, turnip, strawberry, and carrot are edible.)   Toss them in the blender with fruit.   I’m going to do a little video shortly (be a YouTube GreenSmoothieGirl subscriber) showing and […]

Birthday parties with whole foods!

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: What do you do for birthdays? So it’s my kids’ birthdays (yes, all of them–within three weeks of each other–go ahead and make your jokes about me and November).   And last night I had a family party.   Dinner was taco salad without the taco meat (though my mom brought BBQ chicken […]

The Green Smoothies Diet 1

Want a GreenSmoothieGirl class in your city?

One of my Brigham Young University students had serious digestive problems, and when I taught him green smoothies, he had such massive health improvements, he became an evangelist!   He ran a booth at a farmer’s market yesterday selling green smoothies and my new book–just arrived and probably not yet in your bookstore–The Green Smoothies […]

It’s a long and winding road to good nutrition!

In my first newsletters, I told you a little about the rocky path to health that my family and I traversed.  It’s not very often clear and linear, that path, is it?  You try a lot of dumb stuff, yucky recipes you throw away, before you end up at the truth—and that’s if you’re lucky.  […]
