I’m back from Europe! The GreenSmoothieGirl Law of Physics. . . part 1 of 2

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: How will I find the time to follow your program? On this site, and in my book, I often preach to the unbelieving a certain principle.   It can be an uphill battle to get people to buy into my counterintuitive principle of physics until they give it a try.   And that […]

I am just learning how to do this BLOG thing. It is cool. Comments are easy but when you have a question or topic that is not up yet it is different. My question got placed under another topic so I am doing it here to see if more of you will have some input […]

GSG.com diet “problem”: ridiculous joy and energy!

Some really cute 12 Stepper wrote today on that blog about her “problem” of overwhelming happiness and so much energy she’s bouncing off the walls, as a result of a GreenSmoothieGirl plant-food diet and mostly raw food. I have to tell you, I have the same bizarre thing happen to me the more raw I […]

“biological concentration”

I read a post by a 12 Stepper on the other blog on this site, expressing her frustration about the expense of non-organic food and even wondering if it’s worth it to eat a plant-based diet, with all the pesticides on vegetables and fruits. Dr. McDougall says in The McDougall Program for Women (1999) that […]

the nutritionally recalcitrant spouse . . . part four (summing up)

Lisle and Goldhamer, in The Pleasure Trap, write about how as a culture we’re like that frog in the boiling water.   You try to put a frog in boiling water, he’s going to leap out.  But put him in cold water and turn on the heat, he’s going to gradually boil to death without […]

the recalcitrant spouse . . . part three (of four)

the nutritionally recalcitrant spouse . . . part two (of four)

TWO, a major reason you’re enthusiastically moving ahead with health-related dietary changes and he’s resisting is this: you’ve been educated, and he hasn’t!   Obviously, or you wouldn’t be blogging on gsg.com with full confidence that he’ll never see it!   Ever go on long car trips?   I read China Study on a 10-hr.

the nutritionally recalcitrant spouse . . . part one (of four)

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl:  “I am excited about eating right and enjoying the changes I’m making, but my husband/wife is sabotaging my efforts and doesn’t think eating white flour, sugar, meat, and  Diet Coke is really gonna hurt anybody as long as we mix in a salad now and then.” You aren’t alone.   I give my […]

what should I put on my cereal?

***Note: I apologize to all those who have sent me unanswered email questions.   I am trying to get to them all.   FYI, I  prioritize what is blogged over what is emailed.       Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: What should I put on my cereal? Most people put fractionated (skim, 1%, or 2%) antibiotic- and […]
