Reversing Crohn’s disease

I saw this post from Melanie yesterday, in response to an old blog of mine. I thought it warranted front-and-center attention. It’s especially on my mind after a convo after my Lehi, UT class last night with a mother of a young (20-ish) Crohn’s patient who eats no fiber. That’s the problem with Crohn’s patients, […]

Oasis of Hope, Tijuana (Contreras Clinic)

Oasis of Hope in Tijuana is inpatient, with all meals served to you. It is very much a hospital—not a medical spa like in Irvine, or a detox retreat like Creative Health Institute or Hippocrates Health Institute. It’s a small hospital, but they have an emergency room, a pharmacy, radiology, the works. The food is […]

What can I do about pesticides? If you missed the webinar…..

Did you miss our webinar about how to get all the pesticides and herbicides off all your greens, veggies, fruit, and even MEAT if you eat it? (We’ve got over 160 chemicals sprayed on our food these days, and water/veg soap or even bleach removes only about 60%.) This solution uses no chemicals. It’s inexpensive […]

Ayna posted this on my blog, and my response follows: Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: “I have been a vegetarian for so many years I can’t count them. But my family women have a breast cancer gene. You can’t beat that, it does not matter what you do, it’s in the blood. I have lived through 2 breast […]

are eggs good food?

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: Do you think eggs are okay to eat? Answer: I get this question a lot. The answer is, not really. Especially not conventional eggs. If you’re going to buy ONE thing organic, let eggs be that one thing. The natural omega fatty acid balance is so disrupted in conventional eggs that it’s the […]

Expo West and “health food”

So Tif and I got back this week from Expo West in Anaheim, one of the biggest trade shows in the U.S. After three days, we were still seeing booths we hadn’t been to before. Everything and anything you can find in a health food store. A lot of stuff you’d find in the “organic” […]

raw food made easy: new vids on the site

How do you make decisions about whether to buy organic or not? What do you choose in the greens section of the grocery stores where you shop? How much do you pay? What do I do with the rest of the plant when I buy root vegetables? What are some new things you can put […]

Happy Thanksgiving! And (yum yum yum!) do you like hot cocoa?

This morning I’m compiling my kids’ Christmas wish lists to brave Black Friday early in the morning with my girlfriend. (Gulp. I haven’t done that in 15 years.) I’m putting together the big vegetable plate (okay, I’m taking the plastic off the Costco one I bought) and making a giant fruit salad, as my contributions […]

What should I buy organic, and what isn’t such a big deal?

You’ve heard of the “dirty dozen,” the fruits and vegetables that test highest for pesticide sprays. Top of the list is PEACHES. My suggestion? Plant a peach tree! I have three. Here are the others in the top 12 to buy organic or grow yourself, wherever possible: Peaches Apples Bell Peppers Celery Nectarines Strawberries Cherries […]
