More green smoothie mustaches

Marisa’s little girls are Ava (2) and Chloe (9 months) and they love green smoothies so much they actually have beards, not just mustaches! Marisa says she used to make her smoothies really sweet with lots of fruit to ensure her girls would drink them, but she has learned they actually prefer more spinach.

Let’s talk about food and sex

No, this isn’t that episode of Seinfeld where George Costanza tried to combine food and sex in a feverish fantasy . . . and if you can’t handle some frank talk about an important part of your life, WARNING: hurry and delete this email. Did you know that what you eat has EVERYTHING to do […]
