College students going green and getting healthy!

I ran a 10K last Saturday with my daughter, Emma, and her friend Aaron, both former high school track stars. It was the Rex Lee race for a cure for cancer, a cold but sunny day here in Utah. Cancer drug companies seem to have focused in on sponsoring these runs, to raise money for […]

An unexpected benefit of the green smoothie habit!

I met Blaine on the airplane home from Expo West in early 2013. We are both Delta frequent fliers so we got first class upgrades back to Salt Lake. He’s the CEO of a health products company, and it turned out we live a mile apart. Now we are friends and we hang out now […]

I was recently in a conversation where a 23-year old adult said,  regarding this topic, “If I don’t drink bottled water, where will I get it?”   She was totally serious.   Back in the olden days (before water bottles but after the wheel was invented), we used to fill a reusable water bottle or […]

Wall-E

I just took the kids to the dollar movie tonight, Wall-E, for the last night of the “Staycation” we’ve been having for their fall school break.   If you haven’t seen it, it’s about a robot that is the only remaining life form on Earth, since humans destroyed it with  profligate consumption and garbage pileup […]

Need motivation to eat less meat and more plants? . . . part 12 of 12
