Peru, part 5

I did, of course, take a Total Blender along to Peru to teach the orphanage’s cook. The kids were enthralled with how high tech it is. Here’s Carlos drinking a green smoothie and a not-great photo of me making it. I went to this open-air market (that’s how you buy food in Peru) and chose […]

California trip: sometimes you just have to punt (part 1 of 2)

When I went to CA last week (Thurs. through Mon.) with my daughters, I was hard pressed to get all my work done before I left. I was up very late the night before we left for the airport and consequently didn’t have any time to think about how to get through five days eating […]

It’s a long and winding road to good nutrition!

In my first newsletters, I told you a little about the rocky path to health that my family and I traversed.  It’s not very often clear and linear, that path, is it?  You try a lot of dumb stuff, yucky recipes you throw away, before you end up at the truth—and that’s if you’re lucky.  […]

your Total Blender does not run itself

Y’all know I am madly in love with the BlendTec Total Blender.  It’s not just an appliance, not just a blender . . . it’s really my best friend.   Okay, I’m getting carried away, but I do spend more time with my Total Blender than I do my best friends, I think. Today I […]

easy kale or collard “chips” you can make in your dehydrator

GreenSmoothieGirl.com reader Tonya C. donated  a recipe for yummy “chips” (I call them “crisps” because they’re really light and airy) made in the dehydrator. I have significantly  altered the recipe. Brewer’s Yeast is a good way for vegans to obtain Vitamin B12. Cheesy Kale/Collard  Crisps 1/3 cup cashews, soaked 1-2 hours (optionally) 2 Tbsp. lemon […]
