I need to gain some weight! Part 3 of 3

I have been studying a massive amount of information in the past few months about over 80,000 toxic chemicals and metals in our environment. Where they come from, what they do to us, how to avoid them, and how to get rid of them. Food (especially meat/dairy and processed foods), cosmetics, clothes, furniture and paint […]

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 […]

She’s a former E.R. nurse who now does lymphatic drainage therapy fulltime. Dr. Lodi raves about the benefits he sees from this. Check out Brandi’s story about […]

Texas, part 6 of 7: Kaye in Houston, Kaye in San Antonio

Here’s a photo of me with Kaye Barnard, whom we also met in Houston. She eats almost 100% raw vegan, which she calls “God’s way,” and credits that lifestyle with her current health, despite not one, but multiple, STAGE IV cancer diagnoses in the past! Dr. Lodi and I spoke last Saturday morning in Mesa, […]

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 […]

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 […]
