Do you ever stop and think about the ways karma just flows and flows? When I was over six months into my year-long Sugar Bet, last February, I confessed that I’d screwed up, when I was in Hawaii. I came clean immediately when I got home. Not just here on the blog, but I went […]

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 […]

I have a testimonial from a guy for you, in a minute. But first…. I play on at least two tennis teams, all four seasons a year. Last Tuesday morning, I did yoga for an hour, then did my 20-mile bike ride in the canyon in 100-degree heat. That night, I had our last tennis […]

Too Much of a Good Thing? Ken and Kaye’s testimonial

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, […]

Could you fit in the seat at Fenway Park?

Yesterday, a good friend confided in me that he’s recently had a heart attack and is struggling with asthma, acid reflux, allergies, and blood pressure over 170. He said, “I drink my green smoothie but then junk out the rest of the time.” This has always been my fear—that 90 percent of folks who read […]

Intention is Everything

This is a photo of my son picking a sophomore named Tate off the ground to celebrate what happened last night at Utah’s legendary Gates Field where state high school playoffs are held. Tate told Cade, “Last night I dreamed you hit a grand slam!” He reminded Cade over and over that day, telling him, […]

Seven reasons not to drink soda…..part 1 of 2

I watch the addiction of a few people close to me, to soda. One of my closest friends drinks it every day and calls it her “binky.” She kicks the habit but always goes back—because when she quits diet soda, she finds herself taking up sugar. Another tells me he is not addicted but seems […]
