Do all of GSG’s friends drink green smoothies?

The answer to that question is NO. Only about 95% of them. A longtime holdout is Kristin, very possibly my best friend, who is a newly single mom and stays with me 9 nights out of the month when her ex moves in with the kids. She also works for GreenSmoothieGirl.com, and she’s been my […]

Why soft drinks stink, and what happens when you drink green smoothies.

Here’s part 2 of the interview I did with Leslie Smoot. It’s a little about my program, why the first step of my 12 Steps is to quit drinking soda and start drinking greens. And what happens when you do, according to my study of 175 people who did that!

Portland, part 2 of 3

I met Nita, whose blood sugar dropped 100 points a week after starting her 3-pint-a-day green smoothie habit in September. Her A1C test dropped 3 points, which is HUGE. She’d had bypass surgery, and thanks to 12 Steps habits, she got her energy back. She said the week she bought 12 Steps, she was looking […]

What I DON’T do, every day, in my family

So I admit (on a regular basis, actually) that I’m not perfect. Anyone who knows me and sees the inside of my fridge, and what I do on vacation, knows that I “walk the talk.” I really do the stuff I teach, and I do it consistently. But I am also human. If I indulge, […]

Amorphous Blob of Diet Pepsi Jelly-Sausage

Just got back from the Bay Area–yummy raw food at Café Gratitude in Berkeley (photo below). Taught a really fun class in Oakland (will post photos as soon as someone sends me some–since I forgot my camera), so great to meet y’all who came! So Laura (my best friend for 30 years) and I were […]

processed meat: it’s on my “never” list

If you’ve read my books, you know there are two foods I never eat and I don’t let my kids eat either. We are virtually 100% about good nutrition at home, but at a party or in a restaurant, we make good choices but aren’t perfect. The two “over my dead body” foods, though: One, […]

raw food in India? an interesting email from a reader

We get some really interesting email, and I’ve pasted one below that we got this week that I think you’ll enjoy. It corroborates what I have noticed being in 16 countries in the past 18 months. That is, the influence of American culture on the rest of the world has not been wholly positive, and […]

the rest of the Word of Wisdom

Here’s the rest of the body of scripture known as the Word of Wisdom.   Tomorrow I’ll comment on my theory about why  the scripture  doesn’t talk about soft drinks, sugar, refined foods, etc. (beyond the obvious fact that the scripture predates the invention of those  ”foods”).   And I’ll comment on some of the […]

Energy drinks: attention, parents of teens!

Visiting my best friend in San Francisco recently, I sat outside her high-end convenience/grocery store in the very affluent suburb of Piedmont grading papers.   The high school kids arrived en masse, at lunch and after school.   An amazing amount of candy and energy drinks walk out of that place–thousands of dollars’ worth daily.

Are Europeans healthier than we are?

So as you can see, Europeans have fast food.   McD’s is found in 10 locations in the very hip and cosmopolitan city of Barcelona, for instance.   They don’t have nearly as many chains or locations as we do, though.   I have a weird little game I played in airports and train stations […]
