Mid-life crisis? Forget that! Mid-Life Mojo, part 1 of 2

One thing that frustrates me is when people my age forget something, or can’t keep up with their kids physically or whatever, and they say versions of this: “Well, I’m old!” When did we come to accept that we are “old” in our 40’s? Please join me in rejecting this notion! There are accounts in […]

Righting 30-year old wrongs

I just got a facebook message from a childhood friend, Cathy K, that said, “I’m looking for a Robyn Openshaw who grew up in Bellevue, Nebraska in the 70’s–you look too young to be her though, right?” Nope, I’m her! In case I was feeling elated for being told I am too young to be […]

If this doesn’t motivate you, I don’t know what will

So I taught my second class in a week at Dr. Christopher’s in Springville last night. Seems like someone always comes up after a class with a phenomenal story of what happens when you undertake the whole-foods habits I teach. Patricia and Steve Terry (with me below) were the last in line to ask questions […]

I love Texas, Texans, and Whole Foods Market, part 3 of 3

Pamalee of Dallas wrote up her notes from my class and sent them to her family. Here’s what her niece wrote back to her. I agree entirely, including about the fact that while children may stray from what you taught them nutritionally, out in the junk-food world, they’re SO much more likely to come back […]

ObamaCare . . . part 3 of 3

Congress has been wringing its hands over the tragedy of millions of uninsured Americans, for years. The question has been, “How can we pay for all the drugs and surgeries and doctor visits of the Baby Boomers?” How indeed. (And we aren’t even thinking, yet, of the soda generation of obese kids–we’ll worry about that […]

Breast Cancer and ObamaCare . . . part 1 of 3

The headline in my paper, Mar. 26, is “Up to a Third of Breast Cancer Cases Could be Avoided.” Western countries could avoid 25 to 30 percent of breast cancer cases if they ate less and exercised more. (That’s lowest-common-denominator stuff. What if they not only got thinner and exercised, but they ate POWERFULLY HEALING […]

Green Smoothie Testimonials, Part 16

“I have spent all my adulthood overweight and miserable. My weight went from 135 to 280 during that time. Most of the time I had skewed ideas that I was either too fat (when I weighed 135) and not that fat (when I weighed 280). My perception was always off. But I did know that […]
