healthy protein powder

You’ve probably read me saying that whole plant foods have more than enough protein to rival human breast milk, to satisfy the World Health Organization, and even the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowances! One uphill battle I face as a nutrition educator is those trying to put on muscle mass, especially weight lifters, competitive athletes, and […]

food obsession

I have worked out, almost every day, with a small group of women. I’m one of the oldest, and the youngest is 26. (You can see some of them in my facebook photos.) We’ve known each other for years because of our mutual addiction to endorphins. We run, stairstep, kickbox, lift weights, play tennis, and […]

swine flu prevention: should you worry?

I hope you aren’t worried about the swine flu.   Like you, I’ve been reading all about it.   I am simply not worried.   Not because I don’t understand the risk, but because by following a few simple practices, you minimize your risk, and the rest is in God’s hands anyway, where we would […]

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl:   How much fats do you take in a day? From what I gathered from your book, it looks something like: 1 tablespoon flax oil in green smoothie, 2 tablespoons coconut oil on lips and skin, a handful of nut and seeds for snacks in the afternoon.   Am I right?   I […]

tribute to my “grama”

I am in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and Spokane, Washington for the Thanksgiving weekend.   The three of us here are 40, 60, and 80 year old women–me running my five miles each morning, my aunt walking, and my grama lying on the couch recovering from knee replacement.   It’s her third joint replacement, with a […]

Wall-E

I just took the kids to the dollar movie tonight, Wall-E, for the last night of the “Staycation” we’ve been having for their fall school break.   If you haven’t seen it, it’s about a robot that is the only remaining life form on Earth, since humans destroyed it with  profligate consumption and garbage pileup […]

what changed, when we switched to whole foods . . . part 2 of 2

My publisher for The Green Smoothie Diet, to be released next spring, wants me to tell my “story” in the beginning of the book.   I’ve been compiling a list of what happened as my family transitioned to a diet of whole foods.   It was certainly a sea change, to go into my pantry […]

jaw exerciser? or torture?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl:  In one of Victoria Boutenko’s books, she recommends using a dental appliance that gives  a person  extra chewing time, since the green smoothies  often are used in place of 1 or 2 meals.   What is your opinion of this?   Answer: I think it’s an interesting idea, totally untested both in theory […]
