We’re back from the Pacific Northwest! Part 2 of 2

Nona Springer send me this photo from my Portland lecture, with some of the many friends she brought with her, and she wrote this: I went to Robyn’s last lecture in Portland and loved it.  I talked about 20 friends into coming to this one and they all loved it too.  Not everyone made it […]

At church Sunday, someone was making an announcement about a care center that wants us to bring them snacks for the mentally handicapped residents: “The care center staff said they want HEALTHY treats, like fruit snacks and Gushers.” I don’t know what Gushers are, but the fact that they have a brand name is a […]

Jennifer asked, in response to my recent blogs on immunization, about her son going on a church mission. The LDS Church requires a service or proselyting missionary to be current on shots–even seniors. This blog entry applies only to LDS people concerned about vaccines who want to go on a mission or send a child […]

Mormon and vegetarian

LDS (Mormon) friends, check out this article by GSG reader Brett Wilcox about his “coming out of the closet” at church about being a vegetarian. Most interesting to me is the health benefits he and others received shifting to a plant-based diet: http://www.vegsource.com/news/2010/03/mormon-word-of-wisdom-and-vegetarianism.html

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 […]

Weston Price Foundation versus The China Study

A yahoo group I belong to, “Natural LDS Women,” is having a debate about the “science” of the Weston Price Foundation, versus The China Study.” A recent poster said that with scientific “facts” so conflicting, you really just have to pray about it and go with your gut. “LDS” means Mormon (my religion), and in […]

Thoughts after BYU’s Education Week, and hope for young moms

Part 2 of 5 In a very huge curriculum across all topics, I found next to nothing on nutrition. I should really teach at Education Week. Somebody make that happen and I’m there.   On Friday, though, I went to a class called Stocking A Healthy and Convenient Pantry.  Please make careful note of the […]

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. […]
