Why we developed the Menu Planner

I spent all of 2008 developing 12 Steps to Whole Foods, in response to many readers discovering GreenSmoothieGirl.com and asking for a step-by-step plan to learn the lifestyle I was advocating for. In the 1990’s, my little boy had nearly died of severe asthma and allergies. In eliminating sugar and dairy, and converting to a […]

The frustration of making changes

This week my undefeated team goes to Districts. I play singles this weekend even though I’m primarily a doubles player. I’ve won my last 9 matches in a row, and have been logging hours on the court with my ball machine, correcting weaknesses, evaluating my play. Last year at this time, I went to Dictricts […]

dramatic testimonial from “the happiest grama on the planet”

We get a lot of wonderful testimonials, both in person when I teach, and via email on the site. Few are as dramatic as this one we got from Mary Kay: Since hearing about your website six months ago, I have been drinking a quart of green smoothies every day. People I meet now ask […]

A healer in every home…..PART 2 of 3

The medical profession doesn’t have a single drug that the blood-brain barrier doesn’t put up a mounted defense against! (It’s a good thing, since drugs are never assimilated, digested, and eliminated by the body as natural plant foods and medicinal extracts are. And they always have side effects. Some side effects we FEEL, some we […]

K’Lynne comes to my house…with K-Mart pants

Last year in Portland, I barely got to spend any time with someone I think is pretty special. In fact, she and her “before and after” photos, and her story, are in the latest 12 Steps to Whole Foods manual. She lives in a tiny, one-stoplight town. No health food store. But she took 12 Steps to heart, changed […]

You know I love creative ideas that help us eat right, even in social settings and on vacation. Gotta share this, sent by Patty in Puyallup, WA! Once two women came up to me at the carwash and told me that one of them had more money, and the other had more time. So the […]

Angie starts the Salad Club at work!

Here’s a letter I just got from Angela in California. She’s a renegade and a leader, and I love what she did at her office! I think you will, too. Dear GreenSmoothieGirl, I wanted to write you and tell you how you have really changed my life and in turn the lives of many others. I […]

Should I “eat right for my blood type?”

A recent grad from Institute for Integrative Nutrition applied for the GreenSmoothieGirl Health Coaches certification and said this: “I’ve studied over 100 nutritional plans, and the 12 Steps to Whole Foods program is the most comprehensive, practical, grounded approach I have found.” (That’s the goal. I think I’ve studied all those nutrition plans, too. Most […]

Can green smoothies “DEVASTATE” your health?

Sarah the Healthy Home Economist online recently posted an article about how green smoothies can “DEVASTATE” your health.  The content was so unsubstantiated that at first I refused to respond to it. But Amanda said, “She has a big audience and people are freaking out about it.” Sarah cites the oxalates phenomenon, wherein a natural […]

Read Sarah’s inspiring story about a year of green smoothies!

Today I share a letter we got recently. As reply to this blog entry, tell me—what happened to you when you (a) started drinking green drinks daily, and/or (b) started following my program to shift to whole foods? (There’s more! Don’t stop with just green smoothies!) I think it’s important that people hear YOUR story, […]
