Know what kind of life your dinner lived

When I was in Houston, I saw this poster, showing me that if I eat their meat products, apparently they are lovingly cuddled before they are killed for my dinner. It’s a new campaign I’ve seen at lots of WFM’s on my travels. The idea is, we treat animals better than the competition does. This […]

athletes and experts quoted about eating plants

I don’t preach about the -isms. I don’t talk about or embrace words like raw foodist, vegetarian, or vegan, even though I do teach to eat a high-raw, mostly-plants diet. I leave it to you to figure out whether you want organic, clean eggs, cheese, milk, or meat as a small (5% or less) part […]

Will my teeth go bad on a raw diet?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Will my teeth go bad on a raw diet? I am troubled by the Weston A. Price Foundation’s claim. –Megan From Robyn: I have noticed observationally that those on a long-term 100% vegan diet sometimes have dental problems. I do not think that this diet is necessary. (I wonder if there are good […]

think about a cute wiggly piglet before you eat that sausage!

What if anytime you ate pork, you had to see a cute little piggy? Do you think people would be less interested in gobbling it up? Check out what happens when people are offered a fried blob of pork in the grocery store, and then they are shown just how fresh that meat might really […]

Libby Goes Vegan

You know I don’t   promote any “isms”–vegetarianism, veganism, raw foodism.  I’m secretly a fan of all those movements. But I don’t adopt them as extremist positions because I think they send most people running for the hills. And I believe that sticking to the idea of eating MORE PLANT FOODS wins more converts. But […]

KRISTIN ACCIDENTALLY TURNS VEGETARIAN

Kristin is my closest friend and just came on working for GSG full-time on June 1. She was here all the time anyway, putting in nearly FT hours, especially with all the traveling we’ve been doing. She has made my classes SO much more efficient and effective. I love her–she’s the best thing that has […]

door-to-door meat salesmen

I just answered my front door and thought you would like this: Salesman: “Do you like chicken or beef?” Me: “Neither! We like to eat plants. We serve a more or less vegetarian diet here.” Salesman: “What if it’s only $2/lb.?” Me, big smile: “Even if it were free!” Salesman, face falling: “Oh. Sometimes people […]

But also, […]

the rest of the Word of Wisdom

Here’s the rest of the body of scripture known as the Word of Wisdom.   Tomorrow I’ll comment on my theory about why  the scripture  doesn’t talk about soft drinks, sugar, refined foods, etc. (beyond the obvious fact that the scripture predates the invention of those  “foods”).   And I’ll comment on some of the […]

more on the Word of Wisdom

I have this secret little hobby at church.   I love to hear the lessons on this scripture, the Word of Wisdom, and  mentally collect all the ways that, almost invariably, the teacher or people in the class find ways to rationalize their way out of having to actually adhere to those last two verses.
