Birthday season is over, but the CAKE was divine

Aug. 22 ended birthday season around here, when Emma turned 17. ABC’s Wife Swap, filmed in 2007, when you agree to do the show, waltzes in and figures out what they can string you up for. (I knew they would. I considered it a game.) For me, it was the green smoothies, and the fact […]

We’re back from the Pacific Northwest! part 1 of 2

In fact, she and her “before and after” photos, and her story, are in the latest 12 Steps to Whole Foods manual. She lives in a tiny, one-stoplight town. No health food store. But she took 12 Steps to heart, changed […]

Bruce says, “GreenSmoothieGirl Isn’t Just for Girls!”

Amazing news from Dr. Michelle Jorgenson!

Dr. Jorgenson (featured on my upcoming TV show) wrote me this ecstatic email last week: “We had great news today.   We’ve been thinking my husband had the Jorgensen curse.   We counted and 23 of my father-in-law’s first cousins have had heart attacks.   Both my mother- and father-in-law have high blood pressure and […]

My quirky weight-loss strategies, part 3 of 3

Another of my strategies is that I’m not afraid to skip a meal. I never, ever miss breakfast. And at lunch, because I always work out in the morning, I’m ravenously hungry. I don’t skip that either. But I often skip dinner, probably once a week on average. If I’ve had a big, late lunch, […]
