When Grandma Comes to Spoil the Kids, part 2 of 3

Momof3, I feel your pain. Been there. I could give you my usual responses, but I sense you’ve read the Intro to 12 Steps to Whole Foods, and my further comments on this topic, on this blog. You seem to know my ideas on this subject really well. What I hear is deep concern, anxiety […]

Green smoothies for birthdays?

So my 12-y.o. was sitting here with me, excitedly planning her birthday party next month. Making a list of girls to invite, foods she wants provided.

My class at PowerTri in Lehi was attended by over 100 on Friday night (all but 4 were there from this blog). Thanks Jamie and Ryan for hosting it! I loved how well “date night” turned out, like it did the first time we did it a couple months ago at Beyond Sports in Lindon. […]

I love Texas, Texans, and Whole Foods Market, part 3 of 3

Pamalee of Dallas wrote up her notes from my class and sent them to her family. Here’s what her niece wrote back to her. I agree entirely, including about the fact that while children may stray from what you taught them nutritionally, out in the junk-food world, they’re SO much more likely to come back […]

I love Texas, Texans, and Whole Foods Market, part 1 of 3

So I am just back from my spring-break trip with my kids to Cancun and then Dallas. I got to see my really cool brother Russ and his family. (I am the oldest of 8, and he is the third.) And I also taught two classes that were packed with truth seeking, self-improving, completely awesome […]
