Teaching about green in beautiful green Spanish Fork

Hey, thanks to everyone who came to Spanish Fork for my very recent class, photos below. I met a retired fashion photographer from Paris who was diagnosed with a fatal cardiovascular disease and is correcting it with diet, traveling through the U.S. and looking for answers. My editor came–she’s spend hundreds of hours editing my books and recipe collections but finally got her first green smoothie. My friends Denley and Jan, founders of SunWarrior, who I’m traveling with to New York this weekend. A college student trying to address bipolar disorder without drugs. A Roxberry smoothie shop franchisee that wants to be a GreenSmoothieGirl franchisee too. A single mom of 11 kids. And of course the lovely and gracious Aven, owner of Beehive Health Essentials.

I love meeting interesting new friends at my classes. Thanks for honoring me with your time. I hope you get something of value in the time we spend together.

baseball, apple pie, and . . . green smoothies?

I was asked recently for photographic evidence of my son Tennyson’s snacks in the dugout that radically differ from traditional standards. It wasn’t easy to capture boys sitting together eating (since they are usually PLAYING), and this isn’t the greatest photo, but here ya go.

I love baseball, but I don’t love blue PowerAde and Red Vines and salted sunflower seeds that you see my son’s teammates eating.

I do love apple pie–the LaraBar kind! (It’s a raw-food snack widely available now, even at Costco.) And green smoothies. Here you see Tennyson, who Coach tells me leads the team in all categories, with both.

No, my high-school junior doesn’t take Mom’s healthy stuff in the dugout any more. That’s okay–I give it to him at home before the game.
