“I could never eat like you do!”

Nic, my son Tennyson’s buddy, was watching me load up my Nike duffel bag with snacks for my 24 hours of flights to Milan, Italy, to stay at Paracelsus al Ronc. He shook his head as he watched, and we had this conversation. Nic:  Robyn, I could never eat like you do. I don’t like […]

Was it the BAT? Or the GREEN SMOOTHIE?

Tennyson’s walk-off home run put the Mojo, with four wins, into the Memorial Day playoffs. (He was up to bat in the bottom of the 7th. Two outs. Two strikes on him. The score was tied. And he put it over the fence.) As you can see, he credited his expensive bat, in his right […]

Baby Lillian’s First Green Smoothie

Baby Lillian and her mother came to my Vancouver, Washington class recently. Here she is, after drinking her FIRST EVER green smoothie. Clearly she loved it. And asked for more. The younger the child, when they are introduced to whole foods, the more likely they are to enjoy them, for life. We “set” our tastes […]

Sugar as dangerous as alcohol and cigarettes

A study out of University of California at SF says that sugar should be regulated like alcohol and cigarettes, because it’s every bit as dangerous and deleterious. Click here to view the News Video on Sugar Study It changes your metabolism, raises your blood pressure, and destroys your liver, they say. They state that it contributes […]

Vegetarians’ favorite question

My daughter Emma, 17, and I had a convo the other day about how every vegetarian gets sick of the question, “How do you get your protein?” (I bet we hear from some of them here!) I often point those asking that question to my report HERE called “Protein: Are We Deficient? Or Overdosing?” A […]

Green smoothies and hospice

I got this email recently from a reader telling us that her grandparent duties would keep her from attending my upcoming Bountiful, Utah class, but she wanted me to know what whole-foods habits had done for her: Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Our family has had a daily green smoothie habit in the past and I can truly […]

Age 70, running 36 miles/wk: HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!

Happy birthday to my dad, whose character can be defined by consistency, work ethic, and commitment to principle. He’s been nicknamed Bob-Dad for 25 years now (my ex-husband nicknames everyone—this one was inspired by Bob-Dog on Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood). He’s had plenty of stress and bad things happen to him in his life, like pretty […]

The Extraordinary Science of Junk Food

This is a very long article by Michael Moss of The New York Times, called The Extraordinary Science of Addictive Junk Food. My blog entry today is my abstract and analysis of Moss’ work. (Matthew always tells me, “You’re my shortcut to the library.”) If you don’t have time to read the whole article, just […]

This is what Kristin brings to work

Coach Amanda and I were standing in my kitchen chatting about jet lag, Monday morning after we came home from Switzerland late the night before. Kristin walked in for work, carrying the three things you see here in this photo. It cracked me up. I lined up the Green Smoothie, the Hot Pink Breakfast Smoothie, […]
