How I Beat My Sugar Addiction

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Please do an article on the dangers of artificial sweeteners. I am trying to stop eating sugar, but am SO weak!  I’ve been reading some recommended books, and trying to exercise willpower, and I still struggle.   I’m curious what your process was, that led to success, and how you’ve been able to stay off […]

If you get the chance, tell my kids what good nutrition means to you

I won a singles league tennis match at another club a while ago. After the match, I was tanking up on water and talking to my son Tennyson, who came to watch me play. I said, “Want to go to Good Earth and get some wheat grass juice?” My opponent was looking at me strangely, […]

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.

The Hunger Games, and “Being the Change”….part 1 of 3

Ben and I saw The Hunger Games recently. I’d resisted the national obsession with reading the books. Partly because, call me a snob, I didn’t want to read “kids’ books” with my precious, limited reading time. I’m a grownup, and I want grownup challenges from my cerebral functions. Partly because I feel terribly guilty if […]

Anti-Nutrients….are you letting them scare you off whole foods? part 1 of 3

One of the more infuriating aspects of nutrition education is the highly confusing anti-nutrients debate. For example, hot issues include but are not limited to…. Grains have PHYTATES. Spinach has OXALATES. Apple seeds have CYANIDE. Legumes have PURINES. Broccoli and cabbage have GOITROGENS. Dr. Mercola propagates a bunch of needless fear, attacking all grains and some vegetables […]

Profits of Big Pharma relative to the Fortune 500

I recently misquoted a statistic that stuck in my head a little differently than how I originally read it. Here’s the truth: In 2002, the combined profits of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies were more than the combined profits than the other 490 companies in the Fortune 500! (This analysis compliments of journalist Randall F. […]
