Baseball and green smoothies go so well together!

It’s turned beautiful here in Utah, just in time for baseball season.There’s nothing I love more than a double header, sitting in the sun, cheering for my boy and his buddies, booing bad ref calls, and trying to get Tennyson to drink his base-running green juice. The superleague Mojo has been winning tournaments (and losing, […]

Diet vs. Exercise

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: I know that a great diet coupled with lots of exercise is the healthiest approach for all of us. Having said this, I just listened to a guy on the radio say he is a gym rat and is in excellent physical shape for his age (approaching 50,) but he’s a junk food […]

Want to buy my beautiful new house?

It’s a totally self-indulgent blog today! But, I’ve got $3k for anyone who introduces us a buyer unrepresented by a realtor. (We’ll talk to realtors, too, though.) So I told you last year I was building a new house in the spectacular Daybreak planned community in South Jordan, Utah. Well, halfway through the building process, […]

Where the medical profession has gone wrong, pt. 2 of 2

After my Boise class, an M.D. anesthesiologist patiently waited in line to talk to me. I’ll call him Dr. R. But he was kind, humble, and clearly unimpressed by the “Doctor as God” philosophy of some M.D.’s. He didn’t want me to call him by his doctor title; he insisted I call him by his […]

My friend Ben sent me this t-shirt photo. “I take Metformin for diabetes, caused by the hydrochlorothiazide I take for high blood pressure, which I got from the Ambien I take for insomnia, caused by the Xanax I take for the anxiety, that I got from the Wellbutrin I take for chronic fatigue, which I […]

29 yo cowboy a detoxing 12 Stepper

  My friend Lyle is a 5th generation farmer. He has a marketing degree (partly thanks to yours truly, as I was once his professor). He lives and works in Boston and bears an uncanny resemblance to Jesus. But he grew up in a very small farming community in Utah, the youngest of a big […]

How I Talk to Baby Boy About Nutrition

One of the things I like best about the way I was raised is that my mom talked to us like adults. No down-talking. No dumbing down her rather formidable vocabulary. She figured if we didn’t know a word, we could ask what it meant, or look it up. Or just learn through exposure and […]

Dementia and aluminum: every North American should know this

My grampa died with severe dementia, as did my former husband’s lovely grandfather. Both remembered no one in their later years, which was heartbreaking for their families. I’ve always wondered if my grampa’s was related to his massive exposure to DDT pesticide. Many of my family members including my dad worked in the family cherry […]
