Back in the day, I ate peppermint patties every day

It took me the longest time to figure out, in my 20’s, that the reason I was sick and fat was because I ate toxic food every day. I try to remind myself of this, when I meet someone who is barely starting to think about the connection between their disease states, and their sugary, […]

Energy drinks, to “get through the day?”

I have been researching energy drinks—a fairly new phenomenon, but exploding in popularity, especially among young people. The Millennials and Gen Y (actually, all young people in all generations) are generally ill-educated about health and nutrition and also unmotivated by risks. 30 years from now, they’ll be saying what we are: “Ah, I wish I […]

From 7 Years Ago, Starting This Blog……to Now

Seven years ago, as I started this blog, I ruminated a lot on my family’s menus, the “in the trenches” work I was doing daily, raising kids from 6 to 13 years old. Time has flown. Now I find myself still parenting, but in a far more limited way. One teen lives with me, the […]

Is it a myth that wheat (gluten) is bad?

What’s the difference between GMO and hybridized grains? One of the most important ways I educate, in blogging, authoring books, and public speaking, is to point out how billion-dollar industries have falsely educated us, to make a profit. About nutrition, medicine, and health. If you want the quick abstract of this article, scroll to the […]

Are nutritionists and dieticians sleeping with the enemy?

I often talk about how our health care system, and our food system (Big Pharma and Big Food), are Enemies #1 and #2 we have to ward against, if we want to protect our health. Once I wrote about attending a women’s retreat where a nutritionist taught a class and told mothers that their #1 […]

What do you give a GSG for her birthday?

My 20-year old son is moving back in. He signed a year-long contract with his friends, and now, after 6 months, has that contract up for sale. He said, “I’m not sorry I did it. I needed to know I could live on my own. Now I know I can. Can I come back now?” […]

Hot dogs are too dangerous for human consumption

If you’ve been a GSG reader for long, you know I’ve said a million times that “all things in moderation” does NOT mean we should eat poison—in any amount, moderate or otherwise. And I often point out that while my diet isn’t perfect, there are some things I never, ever eat, and absolutely stand up […]

Would you gain weight if you ate an entire car full of spinach?

My oldest son, Cade, 20 years old, came over to chat for a while and tell me about his luck with the ladies, a few days ago. We were shooting the breeze and had this completely pointless conversation, related to whether or not he has gained weight, since moving out into his first apartment away […]

K’Lynne still going strong!

You may remember K’Lynne, from tiny Phoenix, Oregon. She did the 12 Steps to Whole Foods course and lost 100 pounds. I saw her in Minneapolis in June, where she brought her mother to my lecture. She’s shy and quiet, but she’ll answer questions in front of a big audience. I said, regarding how she […]
