Today is Health-Nut Appreciation Day!

My friend Matthew made me realize that bucking popular culture to eat a different, healthier, plant-based diet, is so much easier when your support system is…..well, supportive. Matthew: thank you for always ooh-ing and aah-ing when you come over to my house for a green smoothie, or when I bring you one. For loving whatever […]

San Diego, thank you! Part 2 of 2

Stacy emailed me a few days later that Sasha said to her, “Mommy, ya know me and the Green Smoothie Girl, how BOTH of us were wearing high heels? Yeahhhhh, I mean… she had boots on, but STILL– we both were wearing high heels!” Stacy wrote: “Sasha is all about the shoes. You got her […]

San Diego, thank you! Part 1 of 2

I really enjoyed meeting many amazing friends in San Diego last Weds. night, before the wedding festivities of one of my BFF’s. Thursday we did Sea World and had a party that night. Friday morning before the wedding, we–the four best friends, and the bride–went for a five-mile run along the water. Just like we […]

Marathon Birthday Party

Jennie said to me on the ski lift during yesterday’s Marathon Birthday Celebration, as she called it (she’s my friend that recently converted from a pure-junk diet to an 80% raw diet): “You know what I like best about eating this way? It’s that after a workout I feel good. Instead of exhausted, like I […]

On turning 30: what a difference 6 months makes!

No, I’m not turning 30. (That was LAST year.) My friend Jennie is. To celebrate, today we decided to do our favorite activities all day long just to prove that we’re still young. We’re snowboarding at Brighton all day (after Jennie promised I don’t have the ski the trees). And then playing tennis for hours […]

the virtues of coconut water

Stacy S., organizer of my San Diego event last week (I will blog about it this week, just waiting for photos), that I should write more about coconut oil. How about the liquid, or water, of the coconut? Thanks for the help on this, Jenny Cook: It’s an amazing alternative to water – low in […]

The Rest of the Story with Rich the Pharmacist. Part 2 of 2.

I don’t buy that baloney. (In more ways than one.) If you eat hot dogs and soda on a regular basis, you’re almost certainly spending lots of money on doctor bills. Or you’re about to, as springs start to break loose in your internal box spring. Your health insurance company is going broke, too. I […]

The rest of the story with Rich the Pharmacist. Part 1 of 2.

So here’s the rest of the story with Rich, my first high-school boyfriend. I told you how I ran into him on the plane on his way to pharmacists’ immunization training, and he helped us out in Seattle. I told him, as we reminisced, that before I straightened out my lifestyle, I was 26 and […]

Longevity Conference, Newport Beach Party House

I am so DONE with the HyperThrive Tour Party house! At the end of Hot Yoga in L.A. (not so hardcore as in Seattle, only 118 degrees instead of 120), all 200 lbs. and 6’4″ of Brent Hauver toppled and hit the ground in Tree Pose. It’s hateful to have balance problems when you’re that […]

Jennie: “I want to go back to that raw restaurant”

My friend Jennie was a total junk food addict. Although she’s smart, well read, and has an advanced degree, she was also shockingly ignorant about nutrition (once I wrote about how she thought Jell-O was a food group). At 29, she had horrific endocrine problems, including unbearable menstruation pain and endometriosis and infertility. I begged […]
