Nutrition for pregnant moms, babies, toddlers…..part 2 of 5

Breastfeeding versus formula is our topic today. First of all let’s talk about how long to nurse your baby. We’ve over-sexualized breasts in our culture. We’re squeamish about the use of breasts for feeding babies. Cover it up, don’t let anyone know you do it, get your boobs back as fast as you can for […]

Now you can get KEFIR GRAINS from GreenSmoothieGirl.com

I have been working for a long time on a way to get you quality kefir grains. It’s hard because they are live organisms, and so we cannot mass-produce them. I’m happy to announce that Melinda (GSG staff) and I have been growing them, both WATER grains and MILK grains, and we have them up […]

TEXAS, part 4 of 7, Amy’s Story

Amy was our key volunteer organizing our Austin, Texas event. I felt terrible that somehow I did not get to talk with her, as I arrived only 10 mins. before the event. (My GPS said the flagship Whole Foods Market, that I really wanted to see in the few hours we were in town, was […]

Does your heredity dictate whether you get cancer?

I saw my friend Glenn at the gym yesterday, hadn’t seen him in a long time. He’s a former BYU Marriott School of Management colleague (he’s still there–I’M former). His daughter has been Tennyson’s girlfriend since first grade even though they broke up for a few months in fourth grade when he decided she was […]

My Cousin Quinn’s Russian Cream Breakfast Parfait

My beautiful cousin Quinn is the middle child of my uncle I speak of often, in my books and lectures. (My 32-year old Uncle Gerald chose the medical route when diagnosed with cancer, at the same time my grandmother chose a 100% raw diet.) Just three years ago, Quinn’s husband was diagnosed with cancer at […]

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 […]

one of my favorite weekend breakfasts, pumpkin waffles

So my Breakfast class at the Zermatt Resort last week was great fun. Just one strange thing, I discovered after class when I went to sample the food: the chef apparently made my Pumpkin Waffles . . . without pumpkin! Weird. But my newsletter with these recipes went out, and one reader immediately went out […]

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 […]

Surgery

I am having surgery in a week and a half to repair a labral tear in my hip. Is there anything I can take to prepare my body and also to help it recover? I never take any medications, so this will be new to be taking “drugs.” Thank you! Meghan

green smoothies, free apples, strep throat, antibiotics

Locals, if you’re near Lindon / North Orem, there are boxes of free apples in the “Share the Bounty” hut near my house: just south of Center St. on 400 E. (just on the Orem side). They’re not pretty (so they’re probably unsprayed) so the owner clearly could not sell these apples, but they taste […]
