and the oxalate controversy rages on……

We got lots of interesting email in response to my rebuttal to the wildly exaggerated and completely undocumented article posted by one “Sarah, the Healthy Home Economist” that tells people not to drink green smoothies and says they can “devastate” your health. Heidi, a “low oxalate” blogger / site owner wrote a response. I like […]

Victoria Boutenko’s Green Smoothie Song–and me, giving her props

When my book The Green Smoothies Diet came out, last year, I got an email saying, “Who do you think you are? Victoria Boutenko invented the green smoothie! You owe her some credit!” In fact, I give V. Boutenko, one of my heroes, credit every single time I speak. (Back me up here, if you’ve […]

Skiing with green smoothies . . . and Green Smoothie Testimonials, Part 4

So I celebrated handing my book off to the publisher last Monday by goofing off a lot, skiing a few days last week. Turns out that a quart of green smoothie is an AWESOME skiing lunch. My girlfriends (with their inferior lunch) were losing energy and wanting to go home while I was still ready […]

Review of the Alternative Health Gurus’ Newsletters [part 3 of 3]

Thanks for all the tips, everyone!   Some of the folks who have been mentioned do not have newsletters.   Those who do, I will be researching for later blog postings.   (I also forgot George Mateljan yesterday, whose newsletter I get and really like, with great nutrition information about specific foods, and recipes.)

Getting off meds on a GSG diet

Hal, can’t WAIT to see that written up in the questionnaire!   You have made my day!   (Everyone else, see the response to yesterday’s blog entry.) That’s the BEST kind of evangelizing there is, the EXAMPLE kind.   Just do what you do, and people will ask–no lectures or persuasion needed.   I was […]

defending that my diet’s not all raw

I read the raw foodists all the time (Patenaude, Wolfe, Boutenko, and lots more).   I think their diet is fantastic.   Sometimes I go all raw, for a few days, weeks, or even months.   I wouldn’t criticize anybody for a minute who wants to do it permanently, as some of my friends do–they […]

Reflecting on nutrition, food storage, and hard economic times

What a year this has been.   The much-predicted failure of  American investment banking  has come to pass,  our nation’s net worth has plummeted precipitously, and we’ve started into what promises to be a long recession.   I just came across this quote by a wise man named Joseph Smith, from 175 years ago: “Our […]

how life changed when we switched to whole foods . . . part 1 of 2

  Thinking about Katie’s fingernails prompted this post.   Ridged, bumpy, splitting every which way, I believe she wrote. Green smoothies started her down a great path.   Good things are happening internally, whether she notices the changes or not.   But sometimes we do–sorry to tell you–have to go further than just adding a […]
