When Grandma Comes to Spoil the Kids, part 2 of 3

Momof3, I feel your pain. Been there. I could give you my usual responses, but I sense you’ve read the Intro to 12 Steps to Whole Foods, and my further comments on this topic, on this blog. You seem to know my ideas on this subject really well. What I hear is deep concern, anxiety […]

When Grandma Comes to Spoil the Kids, part 1 of 3

This is edited for length, from “Momof3.” It was a response to one of my recent blog postings and I re-post it here. I often get long emails like this from readers, asking what to do about the older generation’s visits to our children, filled with junk-food “spoiling.” Parents feel that their hard work to […]

Green smoothies for birthdays?

So my 12-y.o. was sitting here with me, excitedly planning her birthday party next month. Making a list of girls to invite, foods she wants provided.

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 […]

When Green Smoothie Girl Meets Red Meat Boy

One of my favorite subjects (I might write a whole book) is how to get the kids or spouse on board, eating whole foods. I get notified via Google Alerts daily about what people are saying about GSG on the web. I don’t usually go into most of them, but here’s one today I think […]

Let’s Start an Office Green Smoothie Revolution

So here’s what you do. You send your office mates to GreenSmoothieGirl.com, or have them watch my 3-minute YouTube vid. Together you chip in on a BlendTec or VitaMix for the office.

home teachers with heart disease

In the LDS (Mormon) church, we have this program called home teaching. The church doesn’t like anyone to be without a support system. So two assigned “home teachers” come once a month, with a message, support, and sometimes treats that usually their wives made. (A similar program, visiting teaching, assigns you two women who also […]

raw food made easy: new vids on the site

How do you make decisions about whether to buy organic or not? What do you choose in the greens section of the grocery stores where you shop? How much do you pay? What do I do with the rest of the plant when I buy root vegetables? What are some new things you can put […]
