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?

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

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 […]
