a recipe from Dr. Michelle Jorgenson

I love working with Michelle Jorgenson and her enthusiastic employees as they shift to whole-foods habits on GreenSmoothieGirl Makeover.

Avocado-Almond Sandwiches

When I was in Portland last month, GSG reader Debbie made all this fabulous food for the road. Which was a good thing, since we did 3 lectures in 24 hours, sometimes with a 2-hour drive, so we had no downtime. (Now she’s setting me up with some speaking engagements in Hawaii for September.

If you can’t beat the chocolate addiction, make it tons more nutritious! This cake is rich and yummy and it comes to you with love from…

6 tips to make any baking recipe healthier….part 2 of 2

(Yes, I know people are HEALTHIER and recipes are more HEALTHFUL, and so does my editor, but we abandon that in my book titles because “Healthful Recipes” sounds so stiff and wrong.) 4. Oil Please don’t use “vegetable oil” for baking. It’s highly refined, heated to high temperatures, and already rancid when…
