6 tips to make any baking recipe healthier….part 2 of 2

Continued from yesterday. (Yes, I know people are HEALTHIER and recipes are more HEALTHFUL, and so does my editor, but we abandon that in my book titles because “Healthful Recipes” sounds so stiff and wrong.) 4.

Check out Lisa, and then Mike, in Orem and American Fork this week, who valiantly tried for 20 minutes to eat kale, collards, and spinach before giving up only halfway to the amount in your quart of green smoothie. (You really have to keep an eye on these people, I am telling you. I tell […]

Patti wrote and said, “I hope you’ll be willing to share with us a bit about your detox experiences as well as a few ideas on raw meals for those of us who can only be with you in spirit as our budgets right now are overloaded.” When you detox, the liver, kidneys, lymph system, […]

Last night’s class in Provo

After class last night at the Good Earth, a woman named Kim talked to me about her recent venture as part of the Biggest Loser contest sponsored by Utah Valley Magazine. She said the trainer they provided to work out with her four times a week set her up with a program requiring her to […]

green smoothies the best way to lose weight EVER

850 of you, my friends, are going strong on the detox, and I hope you’re enjoying the rewards of it and not suffering from too many “overloaded systems” issues!

Under the Big African Sky, last part

So many times, traveling in third-world countries, I find myself in bizarre situations, like being in the back of a tiny grocery store in rural Zambia and hearing David Cook and then Adam Lambert songs on the radio (American Idol contestants). We went on a late-night safari and as Shari and I were sitting and […]

Under the Big African Sky, part 5

Americans wring their hands fretting about getting enough protein. Here are some of my African friends who eat nothing but plants, mostly greens. Do they look like they lack for muscle mass? Meet the hippo, rhino, water buffalo, elephant, zebra, and giraffe. Do you know that the water buffalo is terribly dangerous to humans? Did […]
