defending that my diet’s not all raw

I read the raw foodists all the time (Patenaude, Wolfe, Boutenko, and lots more).   I think their diet is fantastic.   Sometimes I go all raw, for a few days, weeks, or even months.   I wouldn’t criticize anybody for a minute who wants to do it permanently, as some of my friends do–they […]

Body Worlds exhibit in Salt Lake

I just took my kids tonight to the traveling BodyWorlds exhibit currently in Salt Lake City, comprised of “plastinated” Asian cadavers posed in incredible ways (yoga, gymnastics, and many other stances).   The skin is mostly flayed off of the cadavers of former political prisoners (one part of the audio tour explains why they do […]

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 […]

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 […]

Kincade comes home from Scout camp, my best friend reminisces

I wrote last month about Emma coming home from girls’ camp.   Yesterday Kincade, who is one of my two children who is not always supportive of the “nutrition regime” around here, came home from camp.   Tonight at the dinner table this conversation ensued:   Emma:   “Mom, Cade thinks it’s stupid that we […]

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 . . . part 1

Hello friends–I am back from touring 8 countries in the Far East.   Getting trapped by the landslides that had downtown Hong Kong under water the day we left was pretty exhausting.   Fortunately, they held the flight (and 150 others) for a few hours due to the fact that lots of the crew and […]
