Stacy tells us what happens to inflammation and fibromyalgia when you EAT GREEN.

This sweet little 28-year old mom of 4 kids waited a long time to chat with me in Mesa, Arizona and got so emotional telling me her story. Why? Because this is our LIVES we’re talking about–the consequences of the fuel we choose color every aspect of our existence. It was hard for her to […]

Panic! Are cruciferous vegs killing my thyroid? I’m taking a stand on this issue.

A reader, Shawna, wrote us an email with tons of capitalized sentences and exclamation points, saying, “Hey! I’ve been doing green smoothies for a few years now! And I’m hypothyroid! Help–am I killing my thyroid?” My customer support wrote me that people constantly write us “freaking out” about a widely circulated article on the internet […]

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl for Arizona, part 4 of 4

Chris: What’s the best way to combat diarrhea? GSG: If it’s chronic, it’s likely evidence of a degenerative colon issue. Start getting a probiotic-rich FOOD in your diet every day. (Not just a pill, which is inferior.) For example, kefir, yogurt, kombucha, homemade sauerkraut or other fermented vegetables. Eat whole foods, which have a lot […]

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl for Arizona, part 3 of 4

Jenny B: I feel sick if I eat ANY cooked food. (She catalogues her diet and laments how difficult it is to stay almost all raw.) Will I always have to be this careful? Do you ever see people as food-sensitive as me? Will my health problems ever turn around? GSG: I have seen documentation […]

Dear GreensmoothieGirl for Arizona, part 2 of 4

[By the way, that video I blogged on Sunday? Alternatives for milk? We had the wrong video up, but now it's right!] Amy: What’s the right balance of macronutrients? GSG: Americans have been duped into thinking we need 20% protein. Dr. Robert Atkins spread that far-and-wide, popularizing the way fast-food-enamored America wanted to eat anyway. […]

“Dear GreenSmoothieGirl” for Arizona, part 1 of 4

One of my favorite things about traveling to a new city on my speaking tour is meeting names I’ve been seeing since GSG was a brand new site. And meeting volunteers who come help us at the classes. Jenny and Tosh Black. Tawnya and Chad Hood. Jeannie Kirkpatrick. Shanna Anderson. Thank you all for coming, […]

Home from AZ

Kristin and I are back from our trip to Arizona, and soon, I’ll share with you a video or two of interviews with a couple of readers. The drive is long and boring. We stopped and toured the spectacular Glen Canyon Dam. We prowled around Orderville, UT, gawking at polygamists and whispering about our little […]

What can I use to replace MILK?

Newbies ask me this question all the time when they learn that milk, contrary to the $50 million advertising budget of the Dairy Council, isn’t a good food for humans. It’s not even a particularly useable form of calcium (unless you’re a baby cow). Plus it’s mucous forming, and when your body is battling mucous […]

KRISTIN ACCIDENTALLY TURNS VEGETARIAN

Kristin is my closest friend and just came on working for GSG full-time on June 1. She was here all the time anyway, putting in nearly FT hours, especially with all the traveling we’ve been doing. She has made my classes SO much more efficient and effective. I love her–she’s the best thing that has […]

Get your raffle tickets here for MESA, TUCSON, or […]
