Angie starts the Salad Club at work!

Here’s a letter I just got from Angela in California. She’s a renegade and a leader, and I love what she did at her office! I think you will, too. Dear GreenSmoothieGirl, I wanted to write you and tell you how you have really changed my life and in turn the lives of many others. I […]

The manliest men on the planet

Ben texted me that surfer Laird Hamilton is 48 and looks 26, eats a lot of raw and organic, and is one of the “manliest men on the planet,” and I should blog about him. Then I said, “Then how come I haven’t seen him on vegetarian athlete lists?” He said, “Because he’s not pure […]

Should I “eat right for my blood type?”

A recent grad from Institute for Integrative Nutrition applied for the GreenSmoothieGirl Health Coaches certification and said this: “I’ve studied over 100 nutritional plans, and the 12 Steps to Whole Foods program is the most comprehensive, practical, grounded approach I have found.” (That’s the goal.

A cup of joe…..friend or foe?

I’ve mentioned that I grew up not drinking milk and still never do. So why has my bone density “off the chart” for a 20-year old even though I’m mid-forties?

an update on my sports-mom dramas

If you read my silly blog last week about the mom who asked me to make Funeral Potatoes, here’s the update. The boys are still high on their last game, a shutout (10-0) against Springville. My son pitched the whole contest  and was the star of not only the game, but also this Daily Herald […]

Giveaway, Chia Pudding Recipe—and why you need Omega 3′s

At our VIP class a few weeks ago, I taught 6 nutrition habits, each of which can have a dramatic effect on your health. One is using chia seed (I gave my favorite ways to use it) for Omega fatty acids. One thing I feel passionate about is getting people to understand how critical a […]
