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 […]

Can green smoothies “DEVASTATE” your health?

Sarah the Healthy Home Economist online recently posted an article about how green smoothies can “DEVASTATE” your health.  The content was so unsubstantiated that at first I refused to respond to it. But Amanda said, “She has a big audience and people are freaking out about it.” Sarah cites the oxalates phenomenon, wherein a natural […]

Flouride: It’s a poison. Not a cavity preventer.

Because we have the annual IONIZER group buy going on, I have the utterly infuriating subject of WATER QUALITY on my mind. In particular, chlorine and fluoride. Can we just talk a little about fluoride? The Nazis fed concentration camp victims fluoride because it is well known to sterilize people and make them docile. Former […]

“After I eat chocolate cake, I want to die”

I got this email from my friend Matthew: He had just read this quote: “When I eat chocolate cake, 20 minutes later I’m under my desk wanting to die, When I eat broccoli, in 20 minutes I feel good. But given the choice I always eat the cake.” Matthew asks: “Why do people choose the […]

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, […]

Effects of alkaline water for a GSG reader

Jenni forwarded me this email from GSG reader Linda who participated in one of our ionizer group buys. Jenni is my customer support lead, a GSG reader I met at Costco 2 years ago. She is thinking about getting a machine in her home in the current group buy, so I think she asked Linda, […]

that ubiquitous blue, sugary sports drink

That blue drink. It’s everywhere. I’ve never tried it, but it’s in the photo with my son in the dugout from last week. One of my kids reported to me not long ago, “My soccer coach says I HAVE to drink Gatorade, because it’s good for us and she doesn’t want us passing out.” I […]

Raw green food and kidney stones

I have more requests to address oxalates.   I wrote about this in Ch. 1 of 12 Steps to Whole Foods, and also here on the blog: http://greensmoothiegirl.com/?p=288 It’s another one of those “they” things: first they tell us greens are good for us, and then they tell us oxalates will cause kidney stones and […]

Let’s talk weight loss, please

I am so confused.   I have been drinking green smoothies for about 7 weeks now, which have replaced two of my meals because they are so filling, so delicious and full of such great stuff.   But I’m really not losing weight, and I had so hoped eating this way would cause my weight […]
