My oldest friend in the world is Laura.

She’s not old. By that I mean is that we were best friends from the first day of 7th grade. I am in Piedmont, California right now visiting her (and teaching a class in Oakland Friday). I got this card from her a few weeks ago: “We are friends for life When we’re together the […]

If this doesn’t motivate you, I don’t know what will

So I taught my second class in a week at Dr. Christopher’s in Springville last night. Seems like someone always comes up after a class with a phenomenal story of what happens when you undertake the whole-foods habits I teach. Patricia and Steve Terry (with me below) were the last in line to ask questions […]

When Green Smoothie Girl Meets Red Meat Boy

One of my favorite subjects (I might write a whole book) is how to get the kids or spouse on board, eating whole foods. I get notified via Google Alerts daily about what people are saying about GSG on the web. I don’t usually go into most of them, but here’s one today I think […]

Green Smoothie Testimonials, Part 16

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 […]

How do I convert resistant family members to eating right?

If you know my writing, you know I’m always encouraging my readers to share with others what they’re learning that has changed their lives. One of my most common conversations with whole-foods enthusiasts and 12 Steps to Whole Foods converts is around this issue.   Here’s an email I got: “Dear GreenSmoothieGirl, I am excited […]

Oprah, raw food, and parenting (part 2 of 2)

My friend is a regionally renowned musician whose family is going through some seriously tough times. He is amazingly well read, brilliant, educated with an advanced degree, a church leader, fantastic dad, and one […]

Oprah, raw food, and parenting (part 1 of 2)

When my girls and I were on our way to California for me to teach classes in San Diego and Fullerton recently (see photo below of the Fullerton class at BellySprout), one of my daughters brought Oprah up. “Mom,” she said, “Oprah is really amazing and accomplishes so much. But she keeps gaining weight. She […]

New Yorkers are nice, and GSG.com just tells the truth

My daughter and I just had a big laugh this morning. She fulfills book orders for me of The Green Smoothies Diet. If you get the book, you’ll see her 14-y.o. handwriting on your package (but the autograph is mine, LOL!). She just walked into my office and said, “That lady who asked for two […]
