I Never Knew My Green-Smoothie Habit Was Making a Difference!

Sometimes I re-post comments my readers make, because….I think they’re important enough not to get buried. Because someone said something pithy or cool or weird. Or because it’s my blog and I just feel like it. In response to my post “Classroom Rewards That Aren’t Food”: Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: I’m new! Just bought your book, which […]

How much is your health worth?

Yesterday, I rode my bike on my usual path. It’s a 20-mile ride up and down Provo Canyon, turning away from Sundance, to the top of South Fork. The road dead ends there, in front of the Girl Scouts’ Trefoil Ranch. On the way up, a bull moose in my path took my breath away. […]

Great people and great stories from last week!

In my Utah classes last week, we had 200 in Layton, 300 in Sandy, and 400 in my hometown of Orem. A few people stood up to tell us the radical health changes they’re experiencing, as they begin eating whole foods. (Lauralee in Layton came for the 5th time with new friends, and Elisa in […]

“After I eat chocolate cake, I want to die”

I got this email from my friend Matthew: He had just read this quote: “When I eat chocolate cake, 20 minutes later I’m under my desk wanting to die, When I eat broccoli, in 20 minutes I feel good. But given the choice I always eat the cake.” Matthew asks: “Why do people choose the […]

Nutrition and single parents….part 3 of 3

Thank you, single parents who commented on my two-part blog series a couple of weeks ago. I’m quoting Amanda from that blog series because what she said merits front-and-center attention: “Robyn, I know what you’re going through, and thanks so much for writing on this critical topic! There’s very little information online about how to […]

Nutrition and single moms, part 1 of 2

Today I’m going to tell some personal things about my divorce and raising children with a divorced co-parent who has radically different nutrition opinions than a GSG does. This topic is something I normally don’t talk about. If it has the potential to offend you, please don’t read it. I write about it today because […]

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 […]

Home from AZ

Kristin and I are back from our trip to Arizona, and soon, I’ll share with you a video or two of interviews with a couple of readers. The drive is long and boring. We stopped and toured the spectacular Glen Canyon Dam. We prowled around Orderville, UT, gawking at polygamists and whispering about our little […]

KRISTIN ACCIDENTALLY TURNS VEGETARIAN

Kristin is my closest friend and just came on working for GSG full-time on June 1. She was here all the time anyway, putting in nearly FT hours, especially with all the traveling we’ve been doing. She has made my classes SO much more efficient and effective. I love her–she’s the best thing that has […]

They might laugh, but then they change their tune….part 2 of 2

Second day of his tournament that Ten’s team won yesterday, we had this convo on the way home: Ten: “That wrap is soooooo good. All the guys on the team ask me if they can have some.” Me: “Yeah. You know how you always think if you have healthy food people will make fun of […]
