What your fingernails say about your health, part 1 of 2

Did you know that the color of your fingernails, rippling or bumps or spots, reveal problems in your liver, lungs, or even heart? I’ve always been fascinated by fingernails. And I’ve noticed that the health of these cool little protective coverings for my fingers correspond to my overall health. They have dozens functions in any […]

Thoughts on changing habits

I built my house 9 years ago on the culdesac of a quiet street of just 12 homes. My house backs up to the canal that carries irrigation water for hundreds of miles along the base of the Rockies on the Wasatch Front. I have illegally run thousands of miles next to this canal, since […]

More…..about scars on the human body

Nikki wrote me about my last blog post. She said she was pondering the scar conversation we had, and about how scars point to some other things: She said, isn’t it amazing how the autonomic nervous system does things like breathing, creating white blood cells to fight infection, starting self-healing processes immediately upon being wounded. […]

And what to do about SCARS?

On the long drive home from Tijuana to Utah earlier this month, I stopped at a McD’s because they have the cleanest bathrooms. And, well, because I’d drunk the 32 oz green juice I swerved off the freeway to get, at the Henderson Whole Foods Market. Inside the stall, a pink Post-It Note was taped […]

What to do about WRINKLES?

After yoga, when I’m rolling up my mat, seems like often a GSG reader comes over to chat.

Recently, Cheryl, a 53-yo, very fit breast cancer survivor, […]

Automate one meal

Here’s a success secret of people who have lost 30 lbs., on average, and kept it off, according to  a study published in the medical journal Obesity: They find healthy foods they like and stick to them. They “automate” one meal daily so that it’s not a struggle. That’s what the green smoothie habit does for […]

Nick and Kristin are on the road with me!

Our beautiful reader and 12 Stepper Sheryl Babcock came to 6 of my free lectures with her friends and we think she is wonderful. But her record was smashed by the amazing Nick and Kristin Lassonde, who have now traveled to NINE cities to hear the GreenSmoothieGirl message. They showed up in St George, Las […]

Tomorrow GreenSmoothieGirl is ALL NEW!

Today at noon, GreenSmoothieGirl.com freezes. No blog comments approved after then. For 24 hours. We’ve been working, since March, on a complete, total overhaul. It was a nice starter site 5 years ago, but it was patched together with chewing gum and baling wire as we grew to have up to 100,000 visitors monthly. We […]

How long does a Happy Meal take to decompose?

They did a great job with King Tut and Vladimir Lenin, to preserve them against decomposition. But what did McDonald’s do to the Happy Meal, that it does not decompose at all, after six months? Check out the link in the article to another woman’s experiment, where she has a McDonald’s happy meal hamburger from […]
