Last comments about WHY BUY BLENDTEC rather than VitaMix

By the way, a nice thing about having two machines (or three, like I have) is that as a GSG evangelist, you want to lend someone a machine. I *always* have my second VM lent out. For a while my cleaning lady had it while she saved for her own, and currently my teaching assistant, […]

what’s up with the Parisiens?

From our condo in  Paris, I ran my daily five miles down a busy street, in the morning as some of the commuters were out going to the shops or heading to the subway.   I noticed the most disconcerting thing.   Parisiens do not smile.   They make eye contact approximately 70% of the […]

what did we pack/eat in Europe . . . part 2 of 2

For lunch, we’d stop at a market and buy something like this every day: 1.           6 nectarines 2.           6 large carrots (I never saw baby carrots in Europe) 3.           A loaf of whole grain bread (a comedy of communication errors […]

GreenSmoothieGirl Law of Physics (how will I find the time?) . . . part 2 of 2

Back to how it can be true that if you spend energy, you get energy: First, are you a parent of at least two children, or are you close to someone who is?   Many first-time parents are so smitten by their firstborn that when they begin to consider bringing another baby into their family, […]

I’m back from Europe! The GreenSmoothieGirl Law of Physics. . . part 1 of 2

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: How will I find the time to follow your program? On this site, and in my book, I often preach to the unbelieving a certain principle.   It can be an uphill battle to get people to buy into my counterintuitive principle of physics until they give it a try.   And that […]

How do you know you’re dehydrated? More than just dry mouth! . . . part 4 of 6 on WATER

This is from Dr. B’s interview with Mike Adams, one of the last he gave before he died in his late 70’s.   We should realize more signs and symptoms of being low on water than just dry mouth.   “The human body manifests dehydration by a series of symptoms and signs, perceptive symptoms of […]

natural laxatives . . . part 4 of 9 on ELIMINATION

It’s important that we keep the colon and lower intestine clean and powerfully peristaltic.   The answer isn’t to gag down some chemically reduced Metamucil stirred into water, while eating the Atkins Diet, like my friend Michelle does.   When I occasionally go out on a limb and express concern about her long-term Atkins lifestyle, […]

GSG.com diet “problem”: ridiculous joy and energy!

Some really cute 12 Stepper wrote today on that blog about her “problem” of overwhelming happiness and so much energy she’s bouncing off the walls, as a result of a GreenSmoothieGirl plant-food diet and mostly raw food. I have to tell you, I have the same bizarre thing happen to me the more raw I […]

Being sensitive to bad food–a blessing in disguise?

My teenaged daughter Emma came home from camp today.   After giving me a hug and saying hello, the first thing she said was, “MOM! Did you make green smoothies yet?   I neeeeeeed one! I missed them so much!”   Just now, at dinner, she sat down to a big plate of veggies and […]

Eating right while traveling internationally . . . last part

We visited a coastal area of China where the average age is 79 years old!   People very routinely live to be over 100 and the area has become known as the “longevity region.”   I asked the tour guide what they eat, and he said, local vegetables and fruit, and seafood.   I saw […]
