I fantasize about being stranded on a desert island with……

I was sitting at a table at Supply Side West in Las Vegas last month, thumb-typing emails on my Blackberry. I’d gone there to learn about more sourcing options for our new GreenSmoothieGirl line of products. Everyone was eating lunch, and seats were limited, so I sat with strangers.

Plants can’t be franchised! Canada part 2 of 2

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 […]
