What to do with my extra greens??

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: I bought some spinach at Costco and when I got home, I saw it was about to go bad. So I blended it up and froze it in 4 Tupperware containers. Is that okay, or does it ruin the nutrition? Answer: Sure, that’s okay. Even slightly oxidized, two-days-refrigerated, or frozen-then-thawed greens, are better […]

Nutrition and single parents….part 3 of 3

Thank you, single parents who commented on my two-part blog series a couple of weeks ago. I’m quoting Amanda from that blog series because what she said merits front-and-center attention: “Robyn, I know what you’re going through, and thanks so much for writing on this critical topic! There’s very little information online about how to […]

Nutrition and single moms, part 2 of 2

Even though I am doing the very best I can for my kids’ health, even though I run a health-oriented web site and write books and speak all over the U.S., full time……even though there is no junk food in my house….I cannot control everything my children eat. “Controlling” what the kids eat is a […]

My quirky weight-loss strategies, part 3 of 3

Another of my strategies is that I’m not afraid to skip a meal. I never, ever miss breakfast. And at lunch, because I always work out in the morning, I’m ravenously hungry. I don’t skip that either. But I often skip dinner, probably once a week on average. If I’ve had a big, late lunch, […]

My quirky weight-loss strategies, part 2 of 3

I yo-yo like everybody else. (Women can gain and lose 4 lbs. in a week, simply from hormone changes within a cycle and accompanying water retention.) But I yo-yo within a 5-lb. variation. A year ago I dropped 7 lbs., and quickly, because of some stresses in my life. That is highly unusual, though. I […]

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 […]

6 tips to make any baking recipe healthier, part 1 of 2

At the Zermatt in December, I taught these six tips for making a baking treat healthier. You don’t have to know anything about recipe development. These are no-brainers. Three tips today, three tomorrow. (All of this information is in Ch. 11 of 12 Steps to Whole Foods.) 1.           Substitute finely […]

A tip from Jacque in Alpine, Utah

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: I recently read in a comment that you are looking into gluten free recipes, etc. I wanted to let you know about this 9 grain bread being sold at Alpine Food Storage. Maybe you’ve already heard about it, but I am really impressed since most of the gluten free alternatives consist of merely […]

Come early tonight! And, a time-saving tip.

Thanks for your patience if  you came to my Riverdale show last night. Especially those 65 of you who sat in the aisles on milk crates or stood along all the walls when all the seats were full.  And thanks for being patient with fussy babies—you know I WANT THOSE YOUNG MOMS THERE, and you […]
