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 […]
