Which is worse, regular or diet soda?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Which is worse, diet soda or regular soda? Answer: You’ve heard it. The joke goes, “I’m a health nut—I’m having a DIET soda with this burger and fries.” This is a very hard question to answer. Because to say that one is worse than the other is to imply that the less-bad option […]

Dream Big. Live Big. Fail Big. Recover Big.

My best friend, Kristin, and I, live on parallel tracks. Everything that happens to her, something eerily similar happens to me. It has been like this for YEARS. Raising teen/young adult children, divorce, career, real estate…..we seem to live parallel lives and we constantly make note of it. Everything is better when Kristin’s here. Whatever […]

I am the Thanksgiving turkey. And, the GSG crowd goes to Switzerland.

  I was the Thanksgiving turkey this year. Kind of literally. On the American holiday, I was in the Southern Swiss Alps at one of my newly favorite places anywhere in the world……Clinica Paracelsus al Ronc. With lots of GSG readers, pictured here. We were doing a 2-week liver detox. We’re doing it again, in […]

Good Vibrations

It’s a song by The Beach Boys that you’ve never about thought much. Feel free to listen to it HERE while you read this blog. I’ve been obsessed with studying vibrational energy in the past year, and my 2014 lecture is all about this. How to stop obsessing about calories and macronutrients and other fairly […]

15 Ways I Optimize Health and Energy Every Day—Besides Good Food! (part 4 of 4)

11. CULTIVATE GRATITUDE. Feeling resentful and picked-on is easy. It takes just a bit of effort, discipline, and purpose to spend a few minutes daily shifting into a pose of gratitude. But choosing gratitude quickly transforms a bleak mood. Every day I try to marvel at the cool things in my life. Usually it happens […]

15 Ways I Optimize Health and Energy Every Day—Besides Good Food! (part 3 of 4)

6. GET REGULAR PHYSICAL TOUCH. Sex is an important part of a healthy life, and people with good, monogamous sexual relationships are more likely to have good emotional and physical health. But part of the reason why is due to the fact that their need for physical touch is being met. Everyone has read about […]

15 Ways I Optimize Health and Energy Every Day—Besides Good Food! (part 2 of 4)

1. YOGA! It changed my life. I’m more flexible at 46 than I was at 16. But yoga has done more for me than that. It has helped me quiet my mind and tune in to the most elemental things: breathing, and just “being.” I have also seen improvements in spinal, joint, ligament flexibility and […]

My Gratitude Blog, part 2 of 2

My best friend, Kristin, and I had a year, going through divorce and various single-working-mom struggles, where we decided to look at the world differently. Instead of griping about how this-or-that didn’t go our way, we’d find the ways that  any series of events was actually PERFECT, just the way it was. Even though we […]

My Gratitude Blog, Part 1 of 2

Have you ever been in a trance? If you’re a parent, you’ve seen your child in one. He can’t hear or see anything–so lost is he, in thinking about something very intensely. I had one of these a few days ago. I’m going to try to describe it. I was actually blending a Hot Pink […]

Do you work at a desk? Read this!

Me, too. I work at a computer most of the time, sometimes for 12 hours a day. This is on my mind, because I spent all of August at home. I scheduled a 7-week hiatus from my usual travel schedule, in fact. I almost went crazy. I actually love to write, don’t get me wrong. […]
