So you’re trying to get kids to eat right!

You’re raising kids (or maybe helping with your grandkids)?  You and me both, my friend!  I’m raising four—two boys and two girls. They all have different personalities, interests, and temperaments. Your kids are “picky,” you say? I get that. I’ve got two kids like that. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I […]

It’s a long and winding road to good nutrition!

In my first newsletters, I told you a little about the rocky path to health that my family and I traversed.  It’s not very often clear and linear, that path, is it?  You try a lot of dumb stuff, yucky recipes you throw away, before you end up at the truth—and that’s if you’re lucky.  […]

Why does a green smoothie come FIRST as I change what I eat?

I teach classes to people who are beginners in nutrition, eating the Standard American Diet.   I teach intermediate classes to those who are more savvy, and even advanced classes in sprouting and fermented foods. Regardless of where you are, nutritionally, I have found that in every group, people experience profound health benefits by incorporating […]

How did I discover the “green smoothie” that I named this site after?

It’s a great story, really, how I happened upon the “green smoothie,” the attention-grabbing part of this site dedicated to helping you eat right. I was 27 years old, sitting on the front porch one warm summer day when my oldest child was a year old.  Knowing me at that time, I was probably letting […]

I have more energy at 42 than I did at 22!

Thanks again for signing up for my free newsletter.   See, I was just like you might be.   I found myself in a place I hated: sluggish, 15 pounds overweight, suffering with a variety of health problems . . . and I was only 25 years old! But that’s a story you already know […]

Review of the Alternative Health Gurus’ Newsletters [part 2 of 3]

Sorry I went MIA for a minute–my internet is down, and I’m on dial-up!   I have lots of great tips of other newsletters to track down and evaluate.   Some I was getting, some I want to, and others were new to me.   So I’ll do a Part II on this later. These […]

How GreenSmoothieGirl.com was born–it’s a crazy story!

Welcome to GreenSmoothieGirl.com! I put this site up in August, 2007 when I went on a reality show and ABC/Disney told me I’d better prepare for an onslaught of publicity and requests for information.

Are GreenSmoothieGirl nutrition standards too high?

The interesting controversy over my nutrition quiz prompts this post. I supported myself in high school and college teaching piano lessons, and I taught again for about 10 years when my kids were  small.   When I quit, I had 33 students and a two-year waiting list.   My big frustration, teaching piano, was that […]
