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 […]

Recipes from CHI! Part 1 of 2

“Going off sugar” has always been hard for me, because the way I eat really healthy even in the face of temptation, is to tell myself, “I could have that if I wanted to. I choose not to.” (I list reasons in my head, if I’m tempted.) Or, occasionally, I say yes rather than no, […]

If so, me too! Finding a new squash recipe we really like is so fun. I wonder what the recipe below would be like with ZUCCHINI. If you try it before I do, let me know. I found this recipe on Hallelujah Acres yesterday, because one of their employees wrote me to say hi. They’d […]

More garden recipes, and a bedside update….

I am hoping […]

this post is so NOT timely (hot cocoa in JUNE?!)

Nobody really wants to read a healthy hot cocoa recipe in June, huh. I’ll have more appropriate spring garden recipes for you Sunday. But I went for a bike ride at 7:45 p.m. up the canyon. My friend Jennie kept griping about the next steep hill: “I thought you said this was the last one!” […]

I love Idaho Falls . . . part 3 of 3

I’ve been emailed by 12 Steps to Whole Foods support groups all over the U.S., who meet monthly and make the recipes and share ideas and love and encouragement. But in Idaho Falls, I went to have lunch with one such group, led by the indomitable Michele, who is amazing and so honest and genuine….and […]
