flu vaccine danger

My (ridiculously gorgeous) boyfriend Craig got the H1N1 vaccine on Weds. He took his kids to a free clinic–he said it was pandemonium, with people wearing masks and all kinds of crazy stuff. I could send you to Mike Adams’ (Health Ranger) or Joe Mercola’s sites to read a lot of fear mongering (or good […]

So you’re trying to get kids to eat right!

You’re raising kids (or maybe helping with your grandkids)?  You and me both, my friend!  I’m raising four—two boys and two girls. They all have different personalities, interests, and temperaments. Your kids are “picky,” you say? I get that. I’ve got two kids like that. I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but I […]

GreenSmoothieGirl.com reader Tonya C. donated  a recipe for yummy “chips” (I call them “crisps” because they’re really light and airy) made in the dehydrator. I have significantly  altered the recipe. Brewer’s Yeast is a good way for vegans to obtain Vitamin B12. Cheesy Kale/Collard  Crisps 1/3 cup cashews, soaked 1-2 hours (optionally) 2 Tbsp. lemon […]

a bunch of random things

Locals in Utah County, at Sunflower Market right now, whole pitted dates in the bins are $2.79/lb., good price.   I love their produce, too, by the way (the candy section and the fact that they sell pork is really inexplicable, but . . . whatever).   Organic apples continue to be $0.99 at Good […]
