Favorite Ways and Recipes to Use Coconut Oil!

An inexpensive, whole-food, highly nourishing moisturizer! Use a small, clean jar, and fill it with coconut oil. (I have these in my purse, my bathroom vanities, and even in my desk.) I put it on my lips, which feels amazing, although it doesn’t have a beeswax moisture barrier like lip balms do. And I slather […]

Is Coconut Oil Friend or Foe?

This is an excerpt of blogs I wrote in March, 2011. Thanks to a GSG reader for sending this New York Times article. A lot of the things I’ve been teaching for a long time are starting to go mainstream, about the power of coconut oil. I believed them only when I found a dozen […]

What’s the big deal about coconut oil?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: I thought coconut oil was a dirty word. Saturated fat! Shouldn’t we avoid it? Answer: That was a smear campaign by the new vegetable oil industry 30-35 years ago, that effectively removed tropical oils from the shelf. They lumped this whole-food nutrient in with partially hydrogenated oils that are truly harmful. The problem […]

If only adults knew what this 3rd grader does!

I love science experiments. I did one with my Cub Scout related to an email that has gone around for years, saying that microwaved water kills plants. We sprouted seeds in vinegar water, sugar water, microwaved water, filtered water, and tap water. The microwaved water did the BEST. (I’m not advocating for microwaves here—microwaving is […]

GSG is sick. Don’t tell anyone.

So I’ve been a little too braggy lately. I wrote this blog entry recently about “I haven’t had the flu in more than 10 years,” and “I’m healthy even though everyone around me is hacking up a lung,” and it just posted. Oh, how the mighty fall. I just went back and edited my previous […]

Is eating kale going to kill your thyroid?

I have a number of people asking about kale, since a New York Times columnist recently implied that her diagnosis of hyperthyroidism could be related to eating kale. And flax. Never mind all the devastating endocrine disruptors out there, like chlorine and fluoride in our water, BPA and phthalates in plastics we drink from. Those […]

Hot dogs are too dangerous for human consumption

If you’ve been a GSG reader for long, you know I’ve said a million times that “all things in moderation” does NOT mean we should eat poison—in any amount, moderate or otherwise. And I often point out that while my diet isn’t perfect, there are some things I never, ever eat, and absolutely stand up […]

A Healthy Gingerbread House?

So much of what happens at the holidays is beautiful, and creative and fun–and brings us down, after we eat it, susceptible to colds and flu, and lower energetically. I started the GSG Detox early, on Dec. 27, due to my upcoming travel schedule. The live event starts Jan. 5! I eat healthier than 99% […]

What you should know about what happens when you BBQ meat, or fry potatoes

USA Today wrote recently about the FDA’s new rules instructing the food industry how to reduce acrylamide. That’s a carcinogenic chemical produced in many processes involved in creating “foods” like French fries, cold cereal, and coffee. This article bizarrely focuses on the fact that even toast causes acrylamide (anytime you brown, or especially burn, anything). […]
