Plants can’t be franchised! Canada part 2 of 2

A question I’m asked a lot is, “My green smoothies are always different and sometimes I don’t like them. How can I make sure they always ‘turn out?’” Well, that’s the thing. We’ve standardized our tastes. Ray Kroc did it famously, with the first McDonald’s. The idea was to develop a burger and fries that […]

World’s Largest Cucumber Comes Out of My Garden

  This is Patty with a cucumber that somehow escaped notice in my garden until it became The Vegetable That Ate Chicago. It wouldn’t work in a salad. But I refused to throw it in the compost. It made three pints of juice! It wasn’t really yummy, not gonna lie. Kinda bitter. But, we made […]

Of course, every cancer patient hopes for the words “remission” or even better, “cure.” Those things are possible and do happen regularly, especially with early-stage cancers. But, one thing that has been a surprise to me in my studies thus far is that practitioners almost universally talk about how cancer does not have to be […]

Parenting and Nutrition: I hate being the bad guy, part 3 of 3

Oprah always says, “When you know better, you do better.” I believe that. There’s a lag that frustrates many of us, between our behavior versus our knowledge. (You’ve educated yourself about the effects of dairy and sugar. And still you eat it. You’re mad at yourself. You sometimes feel you’re the only one. You’re not!) […]

An open letter to practitioners of Oncology

Dear Oncology Practitioner: Let’s lay down the weapons, and take up a flashlight instead. Let’s shine the light on whether cutting, burning, and poisoning really work. Let’s care about the human body’s sanctity, and the need we have for our immune system for the rest of our lives, more than we care about debate, defensiveness, […]

Dr. Mercola attacks the China Study: clash of the titans

When Joe Mercola contradicts the basics of nutrition taught on GreenSmoothieGirl.com and in my books, we get hundreds of emails. Mercola’s newsletter yesterday supposedly exposes the “DARK SIDE” of the China Study. I’m not going to link to it and therefore give it a higher page rank. It doesn’t deserve it. Before undertaking to explain […]

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 […]
