Dear GreenSmoothieGirl,

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl, My thank you is long past-due.  I came to your class at the Herb Shop in Orem back in May of 2010.  I was hoping to find a way to help my two-year-old son eat vegetables, smoothy-style, but, I didn’t at all bargain for how I would change.  At first, I was wary.  What […]

We love the SOUTH! Part 3 of 3

Sometimes we meet readers who are just pure inspiration to us all. We got a letter from Annette before we left for Atlanta, telling us about her parents in advance of them coming to our class in South Carolina. Mel and Julie Lacock are 78 and 73, spry and healthy, and they’ve been eating a […]

Libby and the Garden

  I have this photo of me and my younger daughter, Libby, working in my garden about five years ago, when I first put the site up. The photo is in Chapter 5 of 12 Steps to Whole Foods. She looks so little. And now she’s turning 15. Some time ago, Libby discovered that if […]

Idaho Falls, traveling and eating right, part 2

I love my five-mile run on the Snake River in Idaho Falls. It’s quirky. Thousands of geese of all ages, everywhere, and apparently it’s illegal to scare or chase them, Tennyson was informed. A shrine to a 16-year old girl who died three years ago. Man-made waterfalls. Saturday flea markets with people selling really weird […]

Sugar-Free Baseball, Part I

Tennyson has a nickname on his team. In the dugout, when he’s up to bat, they chant, “Sugar-free! Sugar-free! Sugar-free!” When he gets on base, they yell, “Sweeeeeet!” I love the nickname, of course, and Tennyson embraces it. I like to yell dumb stuff like, “That was a sugar-free hit, kid!” It’s pretty easy to […]

Ben’s son goes psycho when he eats sugar

Recently my friend Ben was telling me a story about his younger son who has a completely insane reaction to sugar. Ben and his ex-wife are normally vigilant about keeping Alex and sugar faaaaarrr apart. Ben said, “But it was spring break, and I was with my buddy, and I just thought, what the heck. […]

Autumn, Alex, and Austin are today’s heroes!

GSG reader Lisa B. recently read my challenge that, to help kids adopt a really healthy habit, I’d put their photo and story on my blog if they drank green smoothies every day for a month and wrote me. (The challenge is still open for YOUR kids.) Lisa was already a green smoothie girl and […]

The Power of One: the influence of a nine-year old

Check out this news article about what happened when a nine-year old girl began documenting online the appalling nutrition served in her school. Do you have a child who, like my Emma, loves good nutrition and wants to change the world? The internet makes that possible. Would your child like starting a blog, taking photos, […]

Read Sarah’s inspiring story about a year of green smoothies!

Today I share a letter we got recently. As reply to this blog entry, tell me—what happened to you when you (a) started drinking green drinks daily, and/or (b) started following my program to shift to whole foods? (There’s more! Don’t stop with just green smoothies!) I think it’s important that people hear YOUR story, […]

Could you fit in the seat at Fenway Park?

Yesterday, a good friend confided in me that he’s recently had a heart attack and is struggling with asthma, acid reflux, allergies, and blood pressure over 170. He said, “I drink my green smoothie but then junk out the rest of the time.” This has always been my fear—that 90 percent of folks who read […]
