Are you ready to clean up your act, after the holidays?

When I’m on speaking tour meeting my GSG friends, I get this comment a lot: “I’ve been thinking about doing the GreenSmoothieGirl Detox, buuuuuut……” I get it! The first time I did a 3-week detox program, it was after years of thinking about it, wanting to, but avoiding it. All out of fear of the […]

Know what kind of life your dinner lived

When I was in Houston, I saw this poster, showing me that if I eat their meat products, apparently they are lovingly cuddled before they are killed for my dinner. It’s a new campaign I’ve seen at lots of WFM’s on my travels. The idea is, we treat animals better than the competition does. This […]

1,000 Cheap Plant-Based Meals You Can Make in 15 Minutes

I’m about to tell you exactly how I eat. Simply, inexpensively, and with endless variety. Except for salad dressings, I use few recipes. (And even those, I take liberties with!)

Who says you can’t eat right while traveling?

  I always feel less alone in the world, as I opt out of the “Standard American Diet” 95%+ of the time……when I hang out with people like Stasia, Jen, and Rachel. They are GSG readers and apprentice coaches. This is me, having lunch with them downtown, while they were here from the East Coast. […]

My friend Andrew writes Hershey about ingredients in their “high end” products

My friend Andrew wrote to Hershey to complain about the ingredients high-fructose corn syrup, and partially hydrogenated fats, in their high-end Brookside chocolate products. It’s astonishing that, in their response, they don’t address his actual concerns about the effects on the public health. They defend themselves by saying that corn syrup is easy and has […]
