Which is worse, regular or diet soda?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Which is worse, diet soda or regular soda? Answer: You’ve heard it. The joke goes, “I’m a health nut—I’m having a DIET soda with this burger and fries.” This is a very hard question to answer. Because to say that one is worse than the other is to imply that the less-bad option […]

The truth about fish oil and essential fatty acids.

One of my favorite, very simple solutions, for covering hard-to-find nutrition bases, is our SPROUTED FLAX. Why? Because people desperately need essential fatty acids (EFA’s), EVERY DAY, from their food. To avoid heart disease, neurological problems, and anxiety and depression. And Americans aren’t getting adequate levels of EFA’s. 80 percent of us are deficient in […]

49% of Brits don’t know diet affects cancer risk!

Is it possible that half of England doesn’t understand how their fried foods and sugar and alcohol contribute to cancer? We have seen a meteoric rise in cancer over the past 40 years since Richard Nixon declared war on it. This corresponds to the meteoric rise in the processed-food diet. Now 1 in 2 men, […]

Second Chance group buy! And, Why I Love Coconut Oil!

We’re doing a SECOND CHANCE group buy—with not only UNPASTEURIZED almonds, but also the best coconut oil I’ve ever tried, organic and cold pressed, silky and delicious—and for nearly $7/gallon less than our wholesale GROUP BUY price was.

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 […]

I am the Thanksgiving turkey. And, the GSG crowd goes to Switzerland.

  I was the Thanksgiving turkey this year. Kind of literally. On the American holiday, I was in the Southern Swiss Alps at one of my newly favorite places anywhere in the world……Clinica Paracelsus al Ronc. With lots of GSG readers, pictured here. We were doing a 2-week liver detox. We’re doing it again, in […]

We’re going to Paracelsus al Ronc Again! May 25, 2014

I had the most fabulous time, recently returned, from our 2-week Liver Detox retreat in the Swiss Alp town of Castaneda, at Clinica Paracelsus al Ronc. Our retreat was waitlisted by the time we went, as the clinic is small with only about 20 private rooms. My GSG reader friends and I each had 40 […]

Good Vibrations

It’s a song by The Beach Boys that you’ve never about thought much. Feel free to listen to it HERE while you read this blog. I’ve been obsessed with studying vibrational energy in the past year, and my 2014 lecture is all about this. How to stop obsessing about calories and macronutrients and other fairly […]

15 Ways I Optimize Health and Energy Every Day—Besides Good Food! (part 4 of 4)

11. CULTIVATE GRATITUDE. Feeling resentful and picked-on is easy. It takes just a bit of effort, discipline, and purpose to spend a few minutes daily shifting into a pose of gratitude. But choosing gratitude quickly transforms a bleak mood. Every day I try to marvel at the cool things in my life. Usually it happens […]
