Dr. Mercola attacks the China Study: clash of the titans

When Joe Mercola contradicts the basics of nutrition taught on GreenSmoothieGirl.com and in my books, we get hundreds of emails. Mercola’s newsletter yesterday supposedly exposes the “DARK SIDE” of the China Study. I’m not going to link to it and therefore give it a higher page rank. It doesn’t deserve it. Before undertaking to explain […]

I just interviewed T. Colin Campbell

Normally I blog in the morning. Not this morning, because I got Mercola’s newsletter lambasting T. Colin Campbell, PhD, of Cornell University, and his massive study known as the Oxford/Cornell China Project. (The popular book was titled by the publisher The China Study, and I review it in my book reviews.) I threw everything on […]

more tips and thoughts about feeding kids

So I was just hanging out with my friend Karl, a single dad to a 6-year old adopted son. He said his son has a very strong personality and he can’t “make” him eat anything. So Karl carefully observes what raw fruits and vegetables his sons likes, and leaves them around for him. As if […]

Mid-life crisis? Forget that! Mid-Life Mojo, part 1 of 2

One thing that frustrates me is when people my age forget something, or can’t keep up with their kids physically or whatever, and they say versions of this: “Well, I’m old!” When did we come to accept that we are “old” in our 40′s? Please join me in rejecting this notion! There are accounts in […]

I’ve Got the Magic In Me!

Do you know this song? It’s called Magic, by B.o.B. If that doesn’t turn your bad mood around, listen to this OTHER song also called Magic, by Selena Gomez, too. Sometimes when I’m in here on my PC working, I play Magic and bust out all my dance moves. (The ones that embarrass my kids.) […]
