I’m an epic FAIL at Meditation!

It’s time to address this issue: for years, I’ve shamefully felt I’m a failure at meditation. It seems like a great thing to be “good” at. Especially for someone who does what I do for a living—Practicing a holistic lifestyle. Recently, I’ve turned a corner in my meditation. I want to share this with you […]

I’m back from Switzerland, and I hope you come, next time

If you’ve been following GreenSmoothieGirl for a while, you might know that every 6 to 12 months, I go to my “home away from home,” the lovely Paracelsus al Ronc in the southern Swiss Alps. I discovered them on a research tour I did, for 3 ½ years, looking for where to send people who […]

How You Stay Healthy in a Life Crisis

A longtime GSG reader came to my 12 Steps to Whole Foods class recently. (Which I’m teaching again on June 6. In Orem, Utah.) She’s just been hit with a double whammy—literally the two biggest life stressors there are, all at once. An unfaithful spouse and consequent divorce…and loss of a full-term baby. She’s depressed, […]

Reflections on Life and Blogging….and my new lecture starting in September

Nikki at GSG has been going through 7.5 years of my blog, deleting old stuff and cleaning it up. She’ll text me something I said years ago that strikes her as funny, considering where I “live” now. She sends commentary about how she’s getting to know a previous version of me. Like Madonna, we reinvent […]

Sandra in Canada has a great story of health through plant-based eating!

Recently we got this story from Sandra P. in Canada I thought you would enjoy! My family started our plant-based journey less than a year ago. My husband saw Dr. Joel Fuhrman on the Dr. Oz show, and cut out all animal products, as well as all processed foods and oils from his diet! I […]

Six Reasons I Hate Calorie Counting and Don’t Do It

When I changed my diet to eating whole, plant-based foods, I said goodbye to calorie counting forever. By eating 60-80% raw, 95% whole, plant-based foods, I don’t need to count calories. I don’t think it’s a complete waste, my years of obsession with calories when I was young. Because it’s helpful to know what the […]

The new Pepsi commercial

I’ve been hearing this ad on the radio lately. For Pepsi, or maybe it’s Coke. It reminds me of how the media has people so twisted up, with messaging, that the vast majority of us have NO IDEA what’s good for us, and how our diet affects our health, in hundreds of critically important ways. […]

Are you a “stress eater?” Here’s what I do about it!

Have you noticed that most people line up in two camps, when they’re under heavy stress: the people who don’t eat enough, and the people who overeat? Nikki, our operations manager, asked me recently to write on stress eating. She’s in the hot-seat in a major new venture we’re working on, and both she and […]

Just home from Switzerland! Come next May! Check out my live blood analysis.

I’m just back from the most magical place ever, my favorite place on the planet besides home—Paracelsus al Ronc in the Swiss Alps. Five GSG coaches, my mentor Laura Jacobs, assorted children and spouses (including my own daughter Emma, 18) enjoyed a 10-day liver detox. Plus some fabulous sightseeing, sunbathing, hikes, and socializing. Come with […]

From 7 Years Ago, Starting This Blog……to Now

Seven years ago, as I started this blog, I ruminated a lot on my family’s menus, the “in the trenches” work I was doing daily, raising kids from 6 to 13 years old. Time has flown. Now I find myself still parenting, but in a far more limited way. One teen lives with me, the […]
