The average American eats 152 lbs. of sugar annually, compared to 20 lbs. a century ago. That’s 750 calories daily, from refined sugar–which is half an adult woman’s daily calorie requirements!

Can Easter be Sugar-Free?

As it turns out, you CAN do Easter without sugar. I love to make my kids baskets of gifts on Valentine’s Day and Easter. There are plastic eggs in these baskets, which I filled with treats, but no candy with refined sugar or corn syrup. I get them in bulk at the health food store: […]

  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 […]

I was sitting at a table at Supply Side West in Las Vegas last month, thumb-typing emails on my Blackberry. I’d gone there to learn about more sourcing options for our new GreenSmoothieGirl line of products. Everyone was eating lunch, and seats were limited, so I sat with strangers.

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 […]

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 […]

Can green smoothies “DEVASTATE” your health?

Sarah the Healthy Home Economist online recently posted an article about how green smoothies can “DEVASTATE” your health.  The content was so unsubstantiated that at first I refused to respond to it. But Amanda said, “She has a big audience and people are freaking out about it.” Sarah cites the oxalates phenomenon, wherein a natural […]
