If you know my writing, you know I’m always encouraging my readers to share with others what they’re learning that has changed their lives.

Email from a reader:   I just got off the phone with my mom and had some great news! Several weeks ago, I went to my step-sisters pool with my kids and mom. Of course, I toted along my big jars full of green smoothie. I got the usually, “What the heck is that?” comment. […]

How GreenSmoothieGirl.com was born–it’s a crazy story!

Welcome to GreenSmoothieGirl.com!

Getting off meds on a GSG diet

The BEST kind of evangelizing there is, is the EXAMPLE kind.   Just do what you do, and people will ask–no lectures or persuasion needed.   I was just writing in my book about how Victoria Boutenko used to run people down in the Safeway and tell them they needed to eat a raw-food diet. […]

Kincade comes home from Scout camp, my best friend reminisces

I wrote last month about Emma coming home from girls’ camp.   Yesterday Kincade, who is one of my two children who is not always supportive of the “nutrition regime” around here, came home from camp.   Tonight at the dinner table this conversation ensued:   Emma:   “Mom, Cade thinks it’s stupid that we […]

Many GSG.com readers are leaders.   You may not think of yourself that way, but are you always organizing things?   Are people starting to come to you for advice, answers to questions?   If so, then you should start a co-op.   First off, you’ll want to start keeping a list of people who […]

teens drinking greens!

Anyone think teenagers won’t drink green smoothie?  This is my son (on the left) who was shorter than me at the beginning of this year and, I noticed tonight,  is now taller than me when I’m in heels.   (Who says kids fed a plant-based diet are scrawny?)   He brought his two friends over […]
