Should I “eat right for my blood type?”

A recent grad from Institute for Integrative Nutrition applied for the GreenSmoothieGirl Health Coaches certification and said this: “I’ve studied over 100 nutritional plans, and the 12 Steps to Whole Foods program is the most comprehensive, practical, grounded approach I have found.” (That’s the goal. I think I’ve studied all those nutrition plans, too. Most […]

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 […]
