How You Stay Healthy in a Life Crisis

A longtime GSG reader came to my 12 Steps to Whole Foods class recently. (Which I’m teaching again on June 6. In Orem, Utah.) She’s just been hit with a double whammy—literally the two biggest life stressors there are, all at once. An unfaithful spouse and consequent divorce…and loss of a full-term baby. She’s depressed, […]

Reflections on Life and Blogging….and my new lecture starting in September

Nikki at GSG has been going through 7.5 years of my blog, deleting old stuff and cleaning it up. She’ll text me something I said years ago that strikes her as funny, considering where I “live” now. She sends commentary about how she’s getting to know a previous version of me. Like Madonna, we reinvent […]

Rest in Peace Gordon V.

I think this happened before I ever put up GreenSmoothieGirl.com. My church women’s organization asked me to teach a nutrition class. I don’t think I’d ever taught a class before, before. 12 Steps to Whole Foods was in embryonic stages, at best. I didn’t know much about teaching. I decided to teach these ladies EVERYTHING […]

Sandra in Canada has a great story of health through plant-based eating!

Recently we got this story from Sandra P. in Canada I thought you would enjoy! My family started our plant-based journey less than a year ago. My husband saw Dr. Joel Fuhrman on the Dr. Oz show, and cut out all animal products, as well as all processed foods and oils from his diet! I […]

David’s guacamole bruschetta

I was at my friend David’s house the other day and he made me this yummy lunch he calls guacamole bruschetta. He is a vegan foodie, started a journey a few years ago after a lifetime of eating meat and processed food. He lost 25 lbs and is now lean and passionate about teaching people […]

Who says you can’t eat right while traveling?

  I always feel less alone in the world, as I opt out of the “Standard American Diet” 95%+ of the time……when I hang out with people like Stasia, Jen, and Rachel. They are GSG readers and apprentice coaches. This is me, having lunch with them downtown, while they were here from the East Coast. […]

Kathy Supports Her Co-Workers in the GSG Detox!

I recently blogged Kathy’s story. I met her in Baltimore, on speaking tour, and then again 6 months later when she looked like a different person! She lost 40 pounds doing the 26-day GreenSmoothieGirl Detox.  You can see the before and after photos she took with me, here. An amazing testimonial to the miracles that […]

Goodbye to Heinz. And the mannequin named Bob

I’ve been processing, since the death of my amazing friend, Heinz Valenta, on May 29, before I could really write anything cogent. I’ve rarely been so impacted by someone in a short year. My attraction to him was a rare soul connection. His story, and our story, is all tied up with my world-wide cancer […]

GSG Detox Graduate is Back in the Big Bed!

I love reading Detox questionnaires more than ANYTHING in my whole day. I cut and paste the “testimonials” into a big document, and also the “suggestions.” (That’s how I make it better and better—listening to feedback.) I have about 500% more awesome testimonials than would fit on our webpage HERE. My webmasters said, STOP SENDING […]

Child hugging mother

Use nutrition to stoke your sex drive! Why young moms aren’t “into it.”

You think I’m going to start talking about chocolate syrup and strawberries in the bedroom as props. I’m not. I have WAY better advice than that. Moms of young children are very often less interested in sex than their partners. Husbands are frustrated and wonder what happened to the energetic woman they married. (Have a […]
