Firestarters in the journey

I teach in 50 cities annually. After my lecture, I talk to people one-on-one for 90 minutes, to sign books and answer questions. This is the first thing they say to me, almost always: “I’m here because my [brother, hairdresser, college roommate, next-door neighbor] introduced me to you.” Isn’t it interesting that after standing in […]

Nutrition for pregnant moms, babies, toddlers…..part 4 of 5

Today’s topic: NUTRITION DURING PREGNANCY. Remember, what you’re eating when you’re pregnant is also contributing to healthy blood, bones, tissues, and organs—or not. It’s so painful for me to remember back to eating 7-11 nachos, Diet Coke, a Special Burger and fries (extra fry sauce!) at lunch, and Ben & Jerry’s after dinner, throughout my […]

We’re back from the Pacific Northwest! Part 2 of 2

Nona Springer send me this photo from my Portland lecture, with some of the many friends she brought with her, and she wrote this: I went to Robyn’s last lecture in Portland and loved it.  I talked about 20 friends into coming to this one and they all loved it too.  Not everyone made it […]

update on the Sugar Bet

Do you ever stop and think about the ways karma just flows and flows? When I was over six months into my year-long Sugar Bet, last February, I confessed that I’d screwed up, when I was in Hawaii. I came clean immediately when I got home. Not just here on the blog, but I went […]

If you get the chance, tell my kids what good nutrition means to you

I won a singles league tennis match at another club a while ago. After the match, I was tanking up on water and talking to my son Tennyson, who came to watch me play. I said, “Want to go to Good Earth and get some wheat grass juice?” My opponent was looking at me strangely, […]

K’Lynne comes to my house…with K-Mart pants

Last year in Portland, I barely got to spend any time with someone I think is pretty special. In fact, she and her “before and after” photos, and her story, are in the latest 12 Steps to Whole Foods manual. She lives in a tiny, one-stoplight town. No health food store. But she took 12 Steps to heart, changed […]

We love the SOUTH! Part 3 of 3

Sometimes we meet readers who are just pure inspiration to us all. We got a letter from Annette before we left for Atlanta, telling us about her parents in advance of them coming to our class in South Carolina. Mel and Julie Lacock are 78 and 73, spry and healthy, and they’ve been eating a […]

We love the SOUTH! Part 2 of 3

One GSG reader said this to me, the very first thing when she sat down to chat with me after our Raleigh class: “I want you to know that I was there, right behind you, in your divorce in 2008. I was praying for you.” My eyes are welling up, right now, thinking about this. […]

Patty from Puyallup gets Creative on a Cruise!

You know I love creative ideas that help us eat right, even in social settings and on vacation. Gotta share this, sent by Patty in Puyallup, WA! Once two women came up to me at the carwash and told me that one of them had more money, and the other had more time. So the […]
