Drinking and driving: ideas on traveling

We flew into Columbus, Ohio. We then drove through the beautiful foliage in Michigan, Canada, New York, Massachussetts, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia. In each of 10 cities, we grabbed whatever was left of the gallons of green smoothie we served our audiences. After the lecture, we’d put them in the fridge in our hotel rooms. […]

Firestarters in the journey

I teach in 50 cities annually. After my lecture, I talk to people one-on-one for 90 minutes, to sign books and answer questions. This is the first thing they say to me, almost always: “I’m here because my [brother, hairdresser, college roommate, next-door neighbor] introduced me to you.” Isn’t it interesting that after standing in […]

Patty’s Raw Italian Feast……we say goodbye to Mary Poppins

As you might now, for a couple of months we’ve had the pleasure of Patty Maher living with us and working for us. She just got offered a $100k/year job here locally, and I can’t compete, so the kids are saying goodbye to our very own Mary Poppins. You don’t have to say goodbye to […]

Nutrition for pregnant moms, babies, toddlers…..part 4 of 5

Today’s topic: NUTRITION DURING PREGNANCY. Remember, what you’re eating when you’re pregnant is also contributing to healthy blood, bones, tissues, and organs—or not. It’s so painful for me to remember back to eating 7-11 nachos, Diet Coke, a Special Burger and fries (extra fry sauce!) at lunch, and Ben & Jerry’s after dinner, throughout my […]

Nutrition for pregnant moms, babies, toddlers….part 3 of 5

Today’s topic: WHAT DO I WEAN MY BABY ONTO? So, you can’t feed your baby nothing but breast milk, and then goat milk (or yogurt/kefir) forever. Now you know why I highly encourage you to breastfeed as exclusively as you can, for 18 months. But when you do begin to wean your baby, avoid all […]

Nutrition for pregnant moms, babies, toddlers…..part 2 of 5

Breastfeeding versus formula is our topic today. First of all let’s talk about how long to nurse your baby. We’ve over-sexualized breasts in our culture. We’re squeamish about the use of breasts for feeding babies. Cover it up, don’t let anyone know you do it, get your boobs back as fast as you can for […]

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: My baby is breastfeeding, and doing great. But I know I have to make the transition. Besides blending cooked vegetables, what else should I do? Answer: Please share this blog series with anyone with a baby, or anyone thinking about starting a family. What I’m about to tell you is worth more than […]

World’s Largest Cucumber Comes Out of My Garden

  This is Patty with a cucumber that somehow escaped notice in my garden until it became The Vegetable That Ate Chicago. It wouldn’t work in a salad. But I refused to throw it in the compost. It made three pints of juice! It wasn’t really yummy, not gonna lie. Kinda bitter. But, we made […]

Tender mercies rescue me from parenting burnout

I’m giddy right now. Breathless. Sometimes I don’t feel like “fighting the good fight.” Not that I’d ever swerve into a drive-thru and just cave into the social pressure already. I have a giant GSG logo on the back of my car, after all, and people around here know me. Seriously, that’s not why I […]

athletes and experts quoted about eating plants

I don’t preach about the -isms. I don’t talk about or embrace words like raw foodist, vegetarian, or vegan, even though I do teach to eat a high-raw, mostly-plants diet. I leave it to you to figure out whether you want organic, clean eggs, cheese, milk, or meat as a small (5% or less) part […]
