How I Spent My Summer Vacation

Last week Tennyson had a close encounter with a curb he tried to jump on his bike. I had his broken tooth repaired later that day. Everything scabbed over and his giant fat lip was subsiding, when he got stung by two wasps at a baseball game. Here’s a photo of him 18 hours later. […]

My comments about preventive antibiotics, part 1 of 3

Disclaimer: I’m really conservative and avoid antibiotics, but I don’t tell people not to do what their doc says.

My daughter asks, “Why do we get sick?”

Dear Mom: “Why do we get colds? Why did I get this cold and you didn’t?” Answer: (This question came from my 13 y.o. daughter, my most resistant healthy eater. I explained it to her and thought you might like the answer as well, highly simplified.) “First of all, a mild cold with clear mucous […]

How often do you get sick? Should I buy hand sanitizer?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: I was wondering, while eating the great raw food diet that you eat, when is the last time you “caught a cold.” Can you give us an idea about whether you and your kids have been sick or the magnitude of it? Do you or the kids get a cold and you are […]

Research on green smoothies: do you get sick less?

In my research I report on in detail, in The Green Smoothies Diet, I asked 175 regular green smoothie drinkers what health benefits they achieved.   Because to participate, you had to be in the habit for only 30 days or less, I had one issue I wanted to explore that I wasn’t able to. […]
