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, […]

Bruce says, “GreenSmoothieGirl Isn’t Just for Girls!”

I have a testimonial from a guy for you, in a minute. But first…. I play on at least two tennis teams, all four seasons a year. Last Tuesday morning, I did yoga for an hour, then did my 20-mile bike ride in the canyon in 100-degree heat. That night, I had our last tennis […]

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 […]

Sugar-Free Baseball, Part I

Tennyson has a nickname on his team. In the dugout, when he’s up to bat, they chant, “Sugar-free! Sugar-free! Sugar-free!” When he gets on base, they yell, “Sweeeeeet!” I love the nickname, of course, and Tennyson embraces it. I like to yell dumb stuff like, “That was a sugar-free hit, kid!” It’s pretty easy to […]

an update on my sports-mom dramas

If you read my silly blog last week about the mom who asked me to make Funeral Potatoes, here’s the update. The boys are still high on their last game, a shutout (10-0) against Springville. My son pitched the whole contest  and was the star of not only the game, but also this Daily Herald […]

How much is your health worth?

Yesterday, I rode my bike on my usual path. It’s a 20-mile ride up and down Provo Canyon, turning away from Sundance, to the top of South Fork. The road dead ends there, in front of the Girl Scouts’ Trefoil Ranch. On the way up, a bull moose in my path took my breath away. […]

Marathon Birthday Party

Jennie said to me on the ski lift during yesterday’s Marathon Birthday Celebration, as she called it (she’s my friend that recently converted from a pure-junk diet to an 80% raw diet): “You know what I like best about eating this way? It’s that after a workout I feel good. Instead of exhausted, like I […]

Total Care Dental wants to tell you about their whole-foods experience!

Dr. Jorgenson has been trying to figure out how to blog here. (I don’t know how. Sometimes readers do.) She says that her whole office is having so many fascinating reactions and benefits and comments about their whole-foods journey (on GreenSmoothieGirl Makeover) that they really need to be writing it down and sharing! So, I’m […]

tennis and brain tumors and green smoothies

If I’d had my camera with me, I’d have taken a photo of one of my fiercest tennis opponents, whose name is Kristy. I haven’t played her in a long time; she plays for a club in North Salt Lake that we sometimes lose to (whereas we beat everyone else). She’s my age with 4 […]

Triple Doubles and Green Smoothies

Here’s a photo of Tennyson and his green smoothie today. Could eating 20+ servings of vegetables and fruits daily be a factor in his Triple Double last week? (No, that’s not McDonald’s latest offering. In basketball, it’s the rare feat of earning double digits in three different categories. Saturday Ten had 11 assists and steals, […]
