Nutrition for pregnant moms, babies, toddlers…..part 5 of 5

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: My little boy is so picky! He won’t eat healthy food! What do I do? The first time a child is presented with a healthy food, he often will not like it. We have CREATED “pickiness” in our culture, because we introduce babies to refined sugar. Once you’ve had it, nothing else tastes […]

what I do every day, in my family

In a couple of interviews I’ve done for people lately, I’ve been asked, “What do you do in your family to ensure a healthy diet with lots of enzymes and nutrition?” I find myself thinking, “Really, you want that in a 30-second sound byte?” I mean, everything I do is about that. I’ve written whole […]

Despicable Me

My baby just turned 10 years old. (I can’t believe it.) And I took him on a date last night to dinner (Jason’s Deli salad bar) and to see Despicable Me. I got him and his sister (turning 13) really nice bikes for their birthdays. All four of my kids were born (as made semi-infamous […]

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

I don’t know if this draft of a letter helps anyone, but please feel free to use any of it for your own purposes. I think the point is to be both CLEAR and COMPASSIONATE. Not CONFRONTATIONAL, which will just cause defensiveness. Dear Mom, I love you and I know that you love my children. […]

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 […]

Independence Day, part 2 of 2

So I told you my dad is the most rad dude ever. He is unfailingly positive. In fact, if you’re grumpy, he just gets MORE peppy and smiley. He epitomizes the idea that work is a blessing, because he embraces hard work. Forgive me if I’ve told this story before. As a teenager, my dad […]

Independence Day, part 1 of 2

Here are photos after my family’s annual 5K run at Provo’s Freedom Festival. Runners in the photo are my dad, my son Cade, my brother Ben, my sister Betsy, and her husband Matt. (And my mom, who walked.) Also here’s a random photo of my bro-in-law Matt and me doing a fashion shoot using my […]

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 […]

new site “look and feel,” and, a difficult weekend

Check out the new and improved (with more changes coming) GreenSmoothieGirl.com! What do you think??   The site is just under two years old and needed a haircut.   Hope you like it (but want ALL your honest feedback). What would you like to see, content-wise, in the coming year? Thanks for all your support […]

a very personal blog entry

I promised recently that I’d tell you why I was stressed and my friends were dropping by with healthy treats. Like coconut-milk “ice cream” and whole-wheat pumpkin cookies and applesauce brownies. It’s hard to talk about.   I’ve had this written a while but am finally getting the courage to post it.    So here […]
