from Brenda, on facebook

Thanks to Brenda DeSmit in Canada, on facebook, for posting this (I’ve edited it for length): I must post my experience with Green Smoothie Girl & her 12 Steps to Whole Foods program. Last summer I was forced to quit my high-stress, fast-paced career due to my health. A successful Finance & Insurance Manager is […]

Is Jimmer Fredette a GreenSmoothieGuy?

What an amazing weekend I’ve had. Sarah McLachlan concert on Valentine’s Day. Skiing three days in a row. A birthday party with my kids and then my 10 BFF’s. See my annual Valentine’s letters to my kids using candy convo hearts below. Met my new nephew Flynn, see photo (and took his mom a basket […]

I need a vacation from my vacation!

My kids and I are home from 12 hotels, 13 states, in 14 days. What a wonderful historical experience–but I am now doing a much-needed “Nothing But Green Smoothies” detox this week! My goodness, we did what we could, but we had little control over when and what and where we ate. I will tell […]

Robyn McDonalds employee

Coming out of the (McDonald’s) closet, part 2

Well, it’s a fact, I was a McDonald’s employee, and here’s a photo to prove it, circa 1984, Springfield, Virginia–orangey polyester and all. Don’t I look enthusiastic? Thanks, Chuck, for reviving one of my ugliest (in more ways than one) secrets. I can honestly say that I have not eaten a meal at McDonald’s since […]

coming out of the closet

Haha, that got your attention, didn’t it? So I was facebook “friended” by an old high school friend yesterday, Chuck. (He thinks we dated but I don’t remember that. We grew up in Northern Virginia but now, funny enough, live a few blocks from each other in Utah.) Anyway, he said this highly threatening thing […]

raw food diet versus alkaline diet

I was having this conversation on Facebook today with a reader, and since I’m sure not all of you are my facebook friends or check in there regularly, I thought I’d share here part of the discussion: Dear GreenSmoothieGirl (condensed question): I was feeding my kids almond milk but read that overconsumption of nuts leads […]

being a CONSCIOUS plant eater

Yesterday, wow, I sort of mindlessly posted on my Facebook page (find me as Robyn Openshaw-Pay or GreenSmoothieGirl) a group called “No More Blood On My Plate.” Wow.   The response that followed could only be described as a war.   I didn’t even participate in the discussion. (The whole conversation was just NOT. MY. […]

find me on Facebook, and other news

Are you on Facebook?   If so, make me your “friend” by searching for Robyn Openshaw-Pay.   (It’s also a great way to keep tabs on what your teenagers are up to!)   See you there. In other news/reminders, I just did a group buy on ionizers, and Life Ionizer is letting me add a […]
