If you saw what I see….part 2 of 2

If you make it even to 60 eating the Standard American Diet, without chronic health issues, you have dodged a bullet and you’re an exception to the rule. Your parents and grandparents degenerated the DNA you inherited, with their lousy diet. (They didn’t know better. You have more data and options, in 2011, so you…

Picky kids, followup post

A while back I wrote a sorta silly post about picky kids. http://greensmoothiegirl.com/2010/06/18/what-do-you-do-with-picky-kids/ Actually, I’ve written quite a few of them in the past 3 years, some more serious. http://greensmoothiegirl.com/2008/05/01/the-nutritionally-recalcitrant-spouse-part-one-of-four/ Reader Alice Osborn posted this response, which I think warrants front-page attention. A “reprint” of sorts: “Love all of this. My parents used to tell…

Some of you will outgrow me, and I HOPE YOU ALL DO!

In the recent Mercola/Campbell debate I called “Clash of the Titans,” a comment was made by a reader that you may not have noticed–but it really made me think. “John” said that the more he stays close to sun and soil, and the more he learns and empowers himself, the less attention he pays to…

More pages for The Adventures of Junk Food Dude

Here’s the latest installment of illustrated pages (by Lori Sume) for The Adventures of Junk Food Dude. Thanks for the emails through the site, from those who are reading each installment to your kids. I loved it when Holly brought her 10-year old son over at my daughter’s soccer game–she’d read the pages to him.…

Why you will always be nurtured here on GreenSmoothieGirl.com

On the internet, if you’ve been around a while, you know that many of the comments people make in public forums are angry, negative, and nonproductive. On the rare occasion I read these forums, my stomach ends up tied in knots after a few minutes. I hate conflict. I grew up in a home with…

Does it help to visualize? Hit The Cycle!

GSG reader Alisa sent me her meditation CD for evaluation, and I was listening to it this morning. Over the sound of ocean waves, it says in a million ways, “I am choosing habits to lead me to my slender, healthy body NOW.” Do you think it makes a difference to imagine positive outcomes in…

Change is good . . . or at least inevitable (part 2 of 2)

I once gave up another new sport I’d fallen in love with, kickboxing, when I peeled a tendon off my shoulder bone hitting the bag too hard. For 9 months, I couldn’t do the things I loved. Just like now. A friend of mine just invited me to do a 10-hour hike this Saturday and…
