another reason to eat plant foods

Last night I went to dinner at a friend’s house. She is getting married this week and had a house packed full of her large family and his. So I was “helping” by making gravy. We put the boiling roast drippings in the BlendTec, I added cornstarch, pressed the lid on, and pushed the button […]

tamper for the BlendTec

So you can’t decide whether to get a BlendTec or VitaMix? The BlendTec with the 96 oz. BPA-free jar is the ultimate, IMO. You can read about my opinion on the site under “Robyn Recommends.” But if you’re torn because you like that tamper that comes with the VitaMix (which, by the way, is more […]

co-op organizing is fun and rewarding

Here’s an email I got yesterday. Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: I am taking your advice on getting a small health food co-op going in my local area. I thought I might could round up 10 or 15 people that would show some interest. However, we are now up to 50!!! One thing I noticed on your website […]

BlendTec 96oz.

After reading your book, which I LOVE, I ordered the 96oz. jar. I was so excited to make 3 quarts at a time instead of 2 quarts. When I received it I was highly disappointed that it was only a 80oz. jar. I have emailed them and called them and nobody can give me a […]
