Dear GreenSmoothieGirl,

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl, My thank you is long past-due.  I came to your class at the Herb Shop in Orem back in May of 2010.  I was hoping to find a way to help my two-year-old son eat vegetables, smoothy-style, but, I didn’t at all bargain for how I would change.  At first, I was wary.  What […]

Natural Ways to Deal with Stress

My friends, the past month has been one of the most stressful periods  in memory. Not “too-much-work” stress (the kind you can dig your way out of) but just “life-circumstances” stress (the kind you can’t usually solve–you just have to slog through it).

food obsession

I have worked out, almost every day, with a small group of women. I’m one of the oldest, and the youngest is 26. (You can see some of them in my facebook photos.) We’ve known each other for years because of our mutual addiction to endorphins. We run, stairstep, kickbox, lift weights, play tennis, and […]
