Nutrition is usually a gradual process of changes and improvement!

I think it’s important you know how gradual my health changes were. Because I don’t want you to be discouraged if you like how you feel eating whole foods, but your problems didn’t disappear overnight. I’ve written about 21 health problems I had in my 20′s that have all gone the way of the Dodo. […]

Young Vegetarians, share this with your kids, part 2 of 2

I like this YouTube video about another vegetarian athlete, Jake Shields, whose parents never served animals but didn’t talk about why. Now Jake converts other athletes, who are amazed at how endurance increases when they eat only plants: Have your children look at all these world-class, famous athletes, including rocked-up bodybuilders, who don’t eat other […]

Young vegetarians! Share this with your kids….part 1 of 2

My 16-year old daughter Emma has been a vegetarian since age 11, and she loves to evangelize.  When there’s a debate in a school class (it always seems to revolve around “where do you get your protein?”), she comes to me and asks for verbal ammo. Right now she and I are both writing on […]

Why do I get constipated or not lose weight on green smoothies? Part 2 of 2

So, “cleansing reactions” can happen two months or six months or even six years later. They can even happen—on a much milder scale—when your engine is very clean because you’ve completely transitioned to a high-raw diet and eat 5% or less processed food and animal proteins. Personal example. I drank 4 oz. of wheat grass […]

hot dogs as bad for you as cigarettes?

Thanks to alert reader Lowana, for sending me this article about hot dogs. I think the very first nutrition study I read in my 20′s was about childhood cancer. The study found only one commonality in the children who had developed cancer, versus the control group: they consumed 11+ hot dogs per month. (Yes, I […]

some people hated my Huntsman Cancer Institute blog

I recently wrote my fury at our local world-renowned cancer facility pocketing dollars earned by getting people to peddle around on their bikes, eating up to 18 grease-fried blobs of white flour and sugar. I’m usually a fan of understatement or at least restraint. I wasn’t mincing any words with that one, though. Not everybody […]

Dear GreensmoothieGirl for Arizona, part 2 of 4

[By the way, that video I blogged on Sunday? Alternatives for milk? We had the wrong video up, but now it's right!] Amy: What’s the right balance of macronutrients? GSG: Americans have been duped into thinking we need 20% protein. Dr. Robert Atkins spread that far-and-wide, popularizing the way fast-food-enamored America wanted to eat anyway. […]

I love Idaho Falls, Real Men Eat Plants….part 2 of 3

I’m not sure what part of the male psyche allows them to believe that they’re totally good to eat a burger and six-pack of donuts all because they had a green smoothie earlier in the day. I had a meeting with Hawk Harper at Runner’s Corner Monday about organizing a GreenSmoothieGirl Humanitarian 5K (“Running In […]

A tribute to the late, great Paul Leatham

If you’ve heard me speak, you’ve likely heard me refer to Paul Leatham, one of the greatest influences of my life. Shortly before I spoke in San Diego last month, I got an email that he had passed away. He was 63 and died of lingering complications from a motorcycle accident. When my first child […]
