Raw green food and kidney stones

I have more requests to address oxalates.   I wrote about this in Ch. 1 of 12 Steps to Whole Foods, and also here on the blog: http://greensmoothiegirl.com/?p=288 It’s another one of those “they” things: first they tell us greens are good for us, and then they tell us oxalates will cause kidney stones and […]

thoughts on service

I don’t know about you-all, but I have a lot of sick people in my life right now. A couple of my tennis-club girlfriends are having serious issues affecting their ability to play–these being women in their 30′s and 40′s–like ovarian cancer and blurry vision suspected to be a brain tumor. Another of my good […]

green smoothies, free apples, strep throat, antibiotics

Locals, if you’re near Lindon / North Orem, there are boxes of free apples in the “Share the Bounty” hut near my house: just south of Center St. on 400 E. (just on the Orem side).

My mangled face: a postscript about coconut oil

So I told you about my close encounter with concrete on a run last week.   I told you that day, at a GS class I did, one of the event organizers dabbed lavender oil on my battered face that made the swelling go way down, quickly.   Then I went home and smeared coconut […]

Always use an antibiotic for strep and ear infections, right?

With winter coming up, I know many of you have kids who get strep or ear infections or any number of other illnesses we have come to think of as “normal.” When my family quit eating processed foods many years ago, we eliminated any need for asthma drugs and antibiotics. In Europe, antibiotics are used […]

Spreading the word!

I just got off the phone with my mom and had some great news! Several weeks ago, I went to my step-sisters pool with my kids and mom. Of course, I toted along my big jars full of green smoothie. I got the usually, “What the heck is that?” comment. I told my step-sister all […]

Need ways to alleviate morning sickness

I am in the throes of morning sickness with my fourth and I’m looking for advice.   I have 24 hour nausea, but I find a little short-term relief when I’m able to eat something.   I’d love some suggestions on things to add to my smoothies that won’t be too strong tasting but will […]

Help for Migraines

I need some feedback from those of you who have migraines and how green smoothies have helped you.   I have a 21-year old daughter who has migraines every month (definitely hormone related).   I have talked to her about green smoothies but she is not interested.   I don’t have much specific information on […]

Two Questions

Hi Robyn and others, I have two questions . . . well I have a whole lot of questions but I will narrow it down to two for now! 1.   What are your recommendations for antiperspirant or deodorant?   I am a nursing mother so I want to be extra careful of what I […]
