the healthiest shopping cart in Costco

I was in Costco a few days ago and the lady behind me in line said, “That is the healthiest shopping cart I have ever seen!” I told her I write books teaching people how to eat whole foods and I have a site called GreenSmoothieGirl.com. I told her about GSG because she looked like […]

Costco products to avoid

I was at Costco today and saw another product that is an egregious example of how savvy marketers are preying on those who have a small amount of nutrition information but don’t understand the big picture. More and more companies are truly motivated to provide us with excellent nutrition. It’s exciting. We live in a […]

green smoothies, free apples, strep throat, antibiotics

Locals, if you’re near Lindon / North Orem, there are boxes of free apples in the “Share the Bounty” hut near my house: just south of Center St. on 400 E. (just on the Orem side).

Skiing with green smoothies . . . and Green Smoothie Testimonials, Part 4

So I celebrated handing my book off to the publisher last Monday by goofing off a lot, skiing a few days last week. Turns out that a quart of green smoothie is an AWESOME skiing lunch. My girlfriends (with their inferior lunch) were losing energy and wanting to go home while I was still ready […]

Should GreenSmoothieGirls Like You Buy A Costco Membership?

My brother Spencer emailed our whole extended family about his scientific cost comparisons at Costco. Since I shop there and often recommend Costco membership to my readers, I thought I’d share with you what he learned, and my own thoughts on whether Costco membership is worth the price. Spencer and Heidi compared prices on 20 […]

cancer, Costco, and GreenSmoothieGirl.com

I think I’ve told you before that I rarely go to Costco or Good Earth locally that someone doesn’t come up to me and say, “Aren’t you GreenSmoothieGirl?!”   It’s fun.   We are currently getting 9,000 unique visitors to the site each month.   People introduce themselves and tell me their stories, and I […]
