Robyn defends green smoothies (we’ve got a few detractors)

A few prominent nutrition experts have made negative statements about green smoothies. Brian Clement, Caldwell Esselstyn, Colin Campbell, and a lesser name or two. They may not realize that it’s a practice busy people are embracing en masse, and that it’s helping many people. I tackled that subject in writing recently, HERE. But because we […]

All I think about is cancer…if there were a cure, my doc would tell me…part 5 of 7

That old “if there were a cure for cancer, wouldn’t all the doctors be using it?” an M.D. employs in his rant I just read against all non-toxic treatments is a farce. Medical doctors like everyone else are eating pizza and soda on their lunch break, doctors have among the highest mortality rates of any […]

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, […]

My quirky weight-loss strategies, part 2 of 3

I yo-yo like everybody else. (Women can gain and lose 4 lbs. in a week, simply from hormone changes within a cycle and accompanying water retention.) But I yo-yo within a 5-lb. variation. A year ago I dropped 7 lbs., and quickly, because of some stresses in my life. That is highly unusual, though. I […]

My quirky weight loss strategies, part 1 of 3

So, I’ve never written about this because….. First, weight loss is my least-favorite topic ever.   I think it’s boring and pointless because, to me, it happens permanently ONLY as a byproduct of focusing on eating the right foods for your health. There aren’t one set of foods for heart health, a different set of […]

A tribute to the late, great Paul Leatham

If you’ve heard me speak, you’ve likely heard me refer to Paul Leatham, one of the greatest influences of my life. Shortly before I spoke in San Diego last month, I got an email that he had passed away. He was 63 and died of lingering complications from a motorcycle accident. When my first child […]

Taking stock of progress…part 2 of 2

Once upon a time, my whole diet was Ben & Jerry’s, pizza, French bread, Diet Coke, and a fruit or salad mixed in to make myself feel better about it all. I started to change one thing at a time. Sometimes I’d have periods of big progress, and other periods of slight backsliding. It was […]

Today is Health-Nut Appreciation Day!

My friend Matthew made me realize that bucking popular culture to eat a different, healthier, plant-based diet, is so much easier when your support system is…..well, supportive. Matthew: thank you for always ooh-ing and aah-ing when you come over to my house for a green smoothie, or when I bring you one. For loving whatever […]

five major topics in whole foods–this week!

Candace friended me today on facebook and sent me this: “My daughter dragged me to one of your classes, but I left a convert. I have been drinking Green Smoothies every morning for the past eight weeks.   I’m eating more green vegetables now (via green smoothies) than I probably have all my life. I […]

If you saw what I see….part 2 of 2

If you make it even to 60 eating the Standard American Diet, without chronic health issues, you have dodged a bullet and you’re an exception to the rule. Your parents and grandparents degenerated the DNA you inherited, with their lousy diet. (They didn’t know better. You have more data and options, in 2011, so you […]
