This was posted on my blog this week by “mgm” but was deep in an old thread. I like this idea a lot, so I’m re-posting it here. If you are “mgm,” feel free to take credit: I’ve been doing something at work to make the green smoothies look amazing to people, and I think […]

ideas from readers, part 2 of 3

I often hear about people falling off the wagon, after a period of having tremendous results with their 15 servings of raw greens and fruit daily (what you get in the quart of green smoothie daily that I recommend). It happens. Shall we problem solve, so it happens less often? Thursday after tennis I ran […]

ideas from readers, part 1 of 3

GSG reader Brynna came up to me at the gym yesterday. She said a friend of hers doesn’t want to lose the benefits of green smoothies while they go camping, so she made LEATHER out of her GS in the dehydrator. It worked great! (Be sure to chase it with a big glass of water! […]

The verdict on Idaho

So here is our class in Idaho Falls. Turns out, people in Idaho DO care about good nutrition. Tennyson is my helper in the photo. My favorite thing from this class was when I was asked if it’s expensive to incorporate whole-foods habits. I discussed my top two money-saving ideas (one, grow a garden; two, […]

another reason to eat plant foods

Last night I went to dinner at a friend’s house. She is getting married this week and had a house packed full of her large family and his. So I was “helping” by making gravy. We put the boiling roast drippings in the BlendTec, I added cornstarch, pressed the lid on, and pushed the button […]

I Love Texas, Texans, and Whole Foods Market, part 2 of 3

A fun tip was contributed in one of the Dallas classes by my sister-in-law Kim: she says her kids get up in the morning with only 20 minutes before the car leaves for school. So she puts all the green smoothie ingredients in the blender jar the night before. Then she sticks the blender jar […]

anything to make food prep easier

Dear GreenSmoothieGirl: I was talking to someone today who said he puts whole, uncored apples in smoothies. Is that okay? Answer: Absolutely. I do it too. However, if your apples are not organic, quickly cut out the divots in the top and bottom of the apple. That’s where the pesticides collect, and it’s hard to […]

Grains and legumes made easy

I think sometimes we don’t make brown rice, split peas, lentils, or other wonderful whole-grain or legume dishes, only because we get home from work and don’t want to wait 45-60 minutes for those items to cook.   A reader wrote me with this tip, which I have used, too, for many years–I hope it […]
