Last 5 days to sign up for GSG Detox!

One of the things we have heard a number of times about the 26-day GreenSmoothieGirl Detox is a variation of this comment, by a holistic-oriented nurse: “I thought I knew a lot about nutrition, and my body. But WOW, I learned so much about the connection between my health, and food. It’s like 100 light […]

After I eat greasy/sugary “junk food,” I feel………..

Food for thought! This really makes us think about how powerful addiction to junk food is. Since we feel AMAZING drinking greens, and we categorically feel like crap, eating junk. As the corollary to what I posted on, last time, Amy asked our readers to fill in the blank: “When I eat greasy/sugary “junk food” […]

My green smoothie makes me……

GSG rockstar employee Amy Jensen was new to green smoothies and whole foods when we hired her in the Spring. She’s also the new owner of a Blendtec. I think she gets up in the morning and hugs it. She’s a newlywed, and hoping to be a mama in the next year or two, so […]

Can you believe this man is 57 years old?

This is Frank Kendralla. I did my first-ever lecture in Pittsburgh, and he was the guy that, for most of the lecture, I could tell he already knew all this stuff. I reference many things in my lecture that are total eye-openers for 99% of Americans, and 90% of my audiences. (Lots of holistic health […]

Soul Patch Green Smoothie Baby!

At my lecture in Denver last month, a young mother of her first baby won the blender. I don’t think she was immersed in GSG culture–a total neophyte. I practically begged her to recognize the opportunity she has, to wean her baby onto perfect foods. Avoid the issues other kids in daycare centers, preschools, and […]

Natural Suntanning and Sunburn Prevention and Relief

Rodale News reported recently on foods that can (a) prevent sunburn, and (b) treat sunburn. I love to slather fresh aloe vera on it. (Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you must have an aloe plant in your house. They are succulents and hard to kill. I’ve had mine for 15 years. Every […]

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 […]

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 […]
