Don’t eat GMO’s, part 3 of 3

  Check out this Natural News cartoon. Don’t count on our grocery-store foods having labels like “heart-disease spread” and “diabetes drink” or “colon cancer dogs” anytime soon. Coach Jeanette’s a more fiery person than me. (She’s our GSG-certified health coach in So Cal and Florida.) After a day of listening to Expo West sales staff […]

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

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: My little boy is so picky! He won’t eat healthy food! What do I do? The first time a child is presented with a healthy food, he often will not like it. We have CREATED “pickiness” in our culture, because we introduce babies to refined sugar. Once you’ve had it, nothing else tastes […]

Why we developed the Menu Planner

I spent all of 2008 developing 12 Steps to Whole Foods, in response to many readers discovering GreenSmoothieGirl.com and asking for a step-by-step plan to learn the lifestyle I was advocating for. In the 1990’s, my little boy had nearly died of severe asthma and allergies. In eliminating sugar and dairy, and converting to a […]

Idaho Falls, traveling and eating right, part 2

I love my five-mile run on the Snake River in Idaho Falls. It’s quirky. Thousands of geese of all ages, everywhere, and apparently it’s illegal to scare or chase them, Tennyson was informed. A shrine to a 16-year old girl who died three years ago. Man-made waterfalls. Saturday flea markets with people selling really weird […]

FROZEN DESSERTS

These days, there’s no excuse to not eat healthy! You can get virtually ANYTHING you like in the junk-food world, in a vastly more nutritious version. You just have to know where to look! I’m not a big ice cream eater, but I was in my 20′s. I wish I’d known this stuff before I […]

the healthiest shopping cart in Costco

I was in Costco a few days ago and the lady behind me in line said, “That is the healthiest shopping cart I have ever seen!” I told her I write books teaching people how to eat whole foods and I have a site called GreenSmoothieGirl.com. I told her about GSG because she looked like […]

how much does a green smoothie cost?

Jumping the gun . . . drum roll please . . . I just might be opening the first-ever Green Smoothie Bar! Yep, I have an interested party who already owns the perfect facility to try the concept out here in Utah County (then roll it out in other places if it finds traction). I’ve […]

Power foods? Really?

I saw a People Magazine article last week about 10 “power foods.” They listed agave, along with the aggressively marketed, uber-expensive acai and goji berries. Now I’m not going to diss  acai and goji, which are certainly high in antioxidants. But if you’re trying to adhere to a budget, do you really want to pay […]

raw food made easy: new vids on the site

How do you make decisions about whether to buy organic or not? What do you choose in the greens section of the grocery stores where you shop? How much do you pay? What do I do with the rest of the plant when I buy root vegetables? What are some new things you can put […]
