Could you fit in the seat at Fenway Park?

Yesterday, a good friend confided in me that he’s recently had a heart attack and is struggling with asthma, acid reflux, allergies, and blood pressure over 170. He said, “I drink my green smoothie but then junk out the rest of the time.” This has always been my fear—that 90 percent of folks who read […]

an update on my sports-mom dramas

If you read my silly blog last week about the mom who asked me to make Funeral Potatoes, here’s the update. The boys are still high on their last game, a shutout (10-0) against Springville. My son pitched the whole contest  and was the star of not only the game, but also this Daily Herald […]

Hunger Games….on “being the change”….part 2 of 3

Are we obsessed with rich food? With how everything tastes? I promise you, we are. The thing everyone wants to talk to me about, when I’m out running errands or at an event, is how green smoothies don’t taste that bad. (Well, sure, they taste GREAT if you put half a cup of agave in […]

I met Grant Lundberg, principal and third generation in the Lundberg Family Farms Company. I sought him out and asked for an interview because he’s a leader in organizing against, and speaking out about, genetic engineering in our food supply.

They might be enjoying their food more than I am

Today I was driving down State Street, trying to drink a pint of beet/carrot/celery juice that I’d brought with me. I had a kitchen towel wrapped around it because when I ran out to the car with it, it was leaking. I’d jumped back out of the car and used the towel to re-trace my […]

I need to gain some weight! Part 3 of 3

I have been studying a massive amount of information in the past few months about over 80,000 toxic chemicals and metals in our environment. Where they come from, what they do to us, how to avoid them, and how to get rid of them. Food (especially meat/dairy and processed foods), cosmetics, clothes, furniture and paint […]

Young Vegetarians, share this with your kids, part 2 of 2

I like this YouTube video about another vegetarian athlete, Jake Shields, whose parents never served animals but didn’t talk about why. Now Jake converts other athletes, who are amazed at how endurance increases when they eat only plants: Have your children look at all these world-class, famous athletes, including rocked-up bodybuilders, who don’t eat other […]

Young vegetarians! Share this with your kids….part 1 of 2

My 16-year old daughter Emma has been a vegetarian since age 11, and she loves to evangelize.  When there’s a debate in a school class (it always seems to revolve around “where do you get your protein?”), she comes to me and asks for verbal ammo. Right now she and I are both writing on […]

Parenting and Nutrition: I hate being the bad guy! Part 1 of 3

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: I get so sick of cajoling my kids to eat right. It’s exhausting! So a lot of the time, I just cave to the pressure and let them eat crap. What do I do? Answer: This is a big topic. I write on it a LOT, you know if you’ve been here for […]
