Does everything that goes in your mouth have to TASTE good?

It finally snowed here in Utah! In fact, it dumped a foot in the valley, in 24 hours. I shoveled my walks 3 times in one day. One day after Christmas, my kids Emma and Tennyson and I went skiing at Brighton with friends of mine, a pediatric dentist and a plastic surgeon. These friends […]

Are you ready to clean up your act, after the holidays?

When I’m on speaking tour meeting my GSG friends, I get this comment a lot: “I’ve been thinking about doing the GreenSmoothieGirl Detox, buuuuuut……” I get it! The first time I did a 3-week detox program, it was after years of thinking about it, wanting to, but avoiding it. All out of fear of the […]

Who says you can’t eat right while traveling?

  I always feel less alone in the world, as I opt out of the “Standard American Diet” 95%+ of the time……when I hang out with people like Stasia, Jen, and Rachel. They are GSG readers and apprentice coaches. This is me, having lunch with them downtown, while they were here from the East Coast. […]

My friend Andrew writes Hershey about ingredients in their “high end” products

My friend Andrew wrote to Hershey to complain about the ingredients high-fructose corn syrup, and partially hydrogenated fats, in their high-end Brookside chocolate products. It’s astonishing that, in their response, they don’t address his actual concerns about the effects on the public health. They defend themselves by saying that corn syrup is easy and has […]

What happens when you boil Coke?

Once I wrote about the gluey globs from the tubes of my friend’s soda machines (she owns a convenience store). Now check out what happens when you boil off the water from a can of Coke, leaving just the sugar and chemicals. It looks similar to what my soda-fountain-owning friend described. It looks like tar!

The new Pepsi commercial

I’ve been hearing this ad on the radio lately. For Pepsi, or maybe it’s Coke. It reminds me of how the media has people so twisted up, with messaging, that the vast majority of us have NO IDEA what’s good for us, and how our diet affects our health, in hundreds of critically important ways. […]

Are you a “stress eater?” Here’s what I do about it!

Have you noticed that most people line up in two camps, when they’re under heavy stress: the people who don’t eat enough, and the people who overeat? Nikki, our operations manager, asked me recently to write on stress eating. She’s in the hot-seat in a major new venture we’re working on, and both she and […]
