Help! I’m in Zucchini Hell!

I have this kind of random list of questions to ask God when I get on the other side. Some of them are The Big Questions. Why do 15-year old crackheads get pregnant so easily when my friend Jamie, who would be a world-class mother, can’t? Why are people supposed to make huge decisions like […]

Thanks Bay Area friends!

Dr. Lauren Clum and Dr. Mariza Snyder in Oakland put on a lovely event last Friday. Thanks for the lunch for everyone who came. (I didn’t get to eat it, but I heard good things about it!) Here’s a couple of photos, signing books after, and with one of the very first GSG readers, Peg, […]

Amorphous Blob of Diet Pepsi Jelly-Sausage

Just got back from the Bay Area–yummy raw food at Café Gratitude in Berkeley (photo below). Taught a really fun class in Oakland (will post photos as soon as someone sends me some–since I forgot my camera), so great to meet y’all who came! So Laura (my best friend for 30 years) and I were […]

My oldest friend in the world is Laura.

She’s not old. By that I mean is that we were best friends from the first day of 7th grade. I am in Piedmont, California right now visiting her (and teaching a class in Oakland Friday). I got this card from her a few weeks ago: “We are friends for life When we’re together the […]

If this doesn’t motivate you, I don’t know what will

So I taught my second class in a week at Dr. Christopher’s in Springville last night. Seems like someone always comes up after a class with a phenomenal story of what happens when you undertake the whole-foods habits I teach. Patricia and Steve Terry (with me below) were the last in line to ask questions […]

are eggs good food?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Do you think eggs are okay to eat? Answer: I get this question a lot. The answer is, not really. Especially not conventional eggs. If you’re going to buy ONE thing organic, let eggs be that one thing. The natural omega fatty acid balance is so disrupted in conventional eggs that it’s the […]

Birthday Season

Some people have a holiday season. I have that, plus Birthday Season. As I’ve mentioned, all four of my kids were born within a couple of weeks of each other. A primetime TV show made hay about me having a combined birthday party. (The producers cooked up something about an obsession I supposedly have with […]

Despicable Me

My baby just turned 10 years old. (I can’t believe it.) And I took him on a date last night to dinner (Jason’s Deli salad bar) and to see Despicable Me. I got him and his sister (turning 13) really nice bikes for their birthdays. All four of my kids were born (as made semi-infamous […]

Naaman: does the answer lie in simple things?

At church last week, the lesson was about Naaman in 2 Kings in the Bible. I have discussed this story in my book (the manual) 12 Steps to Whole Foods. Naaman didn’t like what he saw as excessively simplistic advice, from the prophet, to go and bathe in the River Jordan to be healed of […]

Don’t make people eat kale. They might hurt you.

So my class at Runner’s Corner in Orem last night was late at night, but awesome! This is me with Kris, my volunteer, who told me she was going to beat me up if I made her eat any more kale. Either that or she is showing off her Popeye-like muscles. Maybe she was showing […]
