American processed-food outreach knows no bounds

I seem to be rather clumsy. First of all, I’ve been initiated as a cyclist: After three months and about 1,000 miles, I finally wrecked my bike. Thanks to a kid changing lanes as I hauled down the canyon at 15+ mph. (Kid was fine.) See the photo of us on the balcony (on our […]

I need a vacation from my vacation!

My kids and I are home from 12 hotels, 13 states, in 14 days. What a wonderful historical experience–but I am now doing a much-needed “Nothing But Green Smoothies” detox this week! My goodness, we did what we could, but we had little control over when and what and where we ate. I will tell […]

airport story

Just a warning: today’s blog has nothing to do with nutrition. It’s just a funny story about something that happened in the Long Beach airport on the way home from Anaheim yesterday. So Tiffani and I got there almost 3 hours before our flight was to leave. We’d been at a raw restaurant with lots […]

California trip: sometimes you just have to punt (part 1 of 2)

When I went to CA last week (Thurs. through Mon.) with my daughters, I was hard pressed to get all my work done before I left. I was up very late the night before we left for the airport and consequently didn’t have any time to think about how to get through five days eating […]

Check out the new page on GSG, including a photo of the orphanage we’re going to work at in December and […]

back from Costa Rica: can you eat well there?

I am back from Costa Rica.   It was supposed to be a 7-day trip, using Delta buddy passes given to me (very inexpensively) by a friend.   Unfortunately at the end of our trip, we spent THREE DAYS in the airport trying unsuccessfully to get out of Costa Rica until I finally bought both […]

what’s up with the Parisiens?

From our condo in  Paris, I ran my daily five miles down a busy street, in the morning as some of the commuters were out going to the shops or heading to the subway.   I noticed the most disconcerting thing.   Parisiens do not smile.   They make eye contact approximately 70% of the […]

Aug. 15 is International Green Smoothie Day!

Hello my friends, I’m off to Europe with my family tomorrow for 18 days: Italy, Spain, and France, and hopefully a one-day adventure in Serbia/Croatia.   I’ll miss y’all, but you won’t miss me, because my assistant Steff will be posting blog entries I wrote, the whole time!   And maybe I’ll miss you so […]

Eating right while traveling internationally . . . part 2

You can enjoy eating on a cruise without gaining 10 lbs.   Don’t think I’m on my high horse here, because if I told you I didn’t indulge on the cruise, I’d be lying.   If I said I didn’t eat gelato for dessert occasionally (it was an Italian cruise line), you’d write me off […]
