Green Smoothies taking Utah Legislature by storm?

On March 5, by invitation, I spoke to the spouses of the Utah State Legislature. Some of them are longtime GSG readers.  Stan Lockhart, whose wife Becky is the Speaker of the House, is the biggest ham we’ve ever had, racing me to eat a plate of greens before I can make a blenderful of green smoothie for everyone. He’s a delightful person and I’m very excited if green smoothies are now being served in the home of our Speaker of the House. Check out the video Kristin made—Stan bares green teeth and all! (Then read the VIP’s who attended, at the bottom of today’s blog.)

We had lots of fun and I was frankly a little starstruck meeting women who have great influence for good. Thank you for inviting me! I hope together we use it to put some solid habits in place to improve the health of my home state!

These are some of the spouses I met:

Stan Lockhart, former State Republican Party Chairman, husband to Speaker of the House Becky Lockhart (one of my heroes)

Susie Bramble, wife to former majority leader Senator Curt Bramble

Sue Stephensen, wife to Senator Jerry Stephenson

Karen Valentine, wife to past Senate President John Valentine

Lisa Sumsion, wife to Rep Kenneth Sumsion, running for governor

Anna Kaye Waddoups, wife to Michael Waddoups, Senate President

Alice Hillyard, wife to Senator Hillyard, Chairman of Appropriations Cte

Janice Van Tassel, wife to Senator Kevin Van Tassel

Cindy Okerlund, wife to Senator Ralph Okerlund

Julie Kiser, wife to Rep Todd Kiser

Gloria Froere, wife to Rep Gage Froere

Kim Powell, wife to Rep Craig Powell

  1. Hi Robyn, I’ve long been convinced now that green smoothies can really turn people’s lives around with it’s being so easy to make and it’s palatability but at the same time, it seems contradicting when I read things such as that greens and even too much plant protein isn’t good for people with failing kidneys and the power of healing foods is very limited when it comes to kidneys. It was an article by Dr. McDougall on his website. I was wondering what your general thoughts were off the top of your head about his perspective?
