Whole food green drink

I just pushed a 475-bottle order of a whole food green drink group buy up  my long driveway and tried my first glass—a local group buy I’m doing.   It tastes great!   I’m so excited about using this and putting it in my food storage, because the ingredient list is unbelievable! Not only does […]

The coconut oil diet

I  have found the  best organic, cold-pressed  coconut oil  for the best price anywhere on the internet.   Check it out on  greensmoothiegirl.com.    The coconut oil diet eaten by  Pacific Islanders is the reason that despite eating up to 60% fat from a diet rich in coconut, they have ideal body weight/mass ratios, as […]
