how life changed when we switched to whole foods . . . part 1 of 2

  Thinking about Katie’s fingernails prompted this post.   Ridged, bumpy, splitting every which way, I believe she wrote. Green smoothies started her down a great path.   Good things are happening internally, whether she notices the changes or not.   But sometimes we do–sorry to tell you–have to go further than just adding a […]

What did you make, when did you eat it, and where?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl, what do you eat in a day?   Not only what did you eat, but WHERE were you when you ate it (soccer field, etc.), and when did you make it, etc.?   Answer:   I logged three weekdays  in a row, just for you.   (I think this question was a nice […]

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 […]

Aug. 15 is International Green Smoothie Day!

Hello my friends, I’m off to Europe with my family tomorrow for 18 days: Italy, Spain, and France, and hopefully a one-day adventure in Serbia/Croatia.   I’ll miss y’all, but you won’t miss me, because my assistant Steff will be posting blog entries I wrote, the whole time!   And maybe I’ll miss you so […]

More Experts on Colon Cleansing . . . part 9 of 9

Sir Arbuthnut Lane was a surgeon for the King of England and specialized in bowel issues. He removed parts of the colon and sewed the rest back together, and in the course of his practice, he noticed that many times, patients after surgery would have goiters or arthritis disappear, etc. Often, seemingly unrelated maladies improved […]

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 […]

pathetic garden overgrowth . . . but, it’s free food!

I’m a little ashamed to admit that parts of my garden have been sadly neglected this year, due to my being gone a lot and not being able to use it as quickly as it has grown.     I try not to  post many no-makeup photos so that people don’t write  GSG off as […]

fun with community supported agriculture

  I just got home from picking up at our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) co-op.   We each paid $400 for a half share: weekly pickups of whatever they have, for a 4.5-month growing season.   Four friends and I take turns picking up.   It has been so much fun!   This week, we […]

teens drinking greens!

Anyone think teenagers won’t drink green smoothie?  This is my son (on the left) who was shorter than me at the beginning of this year and, I noticed tonight,  is now taller than me when I’m in heels.   (Who says kids fed a plant-based diet are scrawny?)   He brought his two friends over […]
