In Denver this summer, I met Lisa, who was, not long ago, completely debilitated by Lupus. Here’s her story, in 4 minutes, that I hope inspires you, if you have an auto-immune condition, to change your nutrition. (Sorry it was windy, which affected the sound. TURN IT UP!)

more thoughts about agave

As if we haven’t done this subject to death. From the consensus of many people commenting on my blog about Mercola coming out against agave, it looks to be about 50/50.

Is agave a superfood or a poison?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Dr. Mercola says agave is going to kill me! Is he right? Answer: I have been inundated with emails about this. In every class I teach, someone brings it up.

I just got off the phone with my mom and had some great news! Several weeks ago, I went to my step-sisters pool with my kids and mom. Of course, I toted along my big jars full of green smoothie. I got the usually, “What the heck is that?” comment. I told my step-sister all […]
