an interesting green smoothie testimonial

I have lots more testimonials I haven’t posted yet.   I’ve blogged in the past about the personality changes and mood improvements that people experience when they toss the refined foods and start eating whole, mostly-raw plant food.   Here’s an interesting testimonial from a reader named Grace that came in this morning through the […]

Robyn – I have been doing your program for several months now and have made many changes.   I feel better, have more energy, but have actually gained weight!   I have cut back on the fruit/nuts that I put in my smoothie and am trying to go more than my now 70% raw.   […]
