Young Vegetarians, share this with your kids, part 2 of 2

I like this YouTube video about another vegetarian athlete, Jake Shields, whose parents never served animals but didn’t talk about why. Now Jake converts other athletes, who are amazed at how endurance increases when they eat only plants: Have your children look at all these world-class, famous athletes, including rocked-up bodybuilders, who don’t eat other […]

Introducing the Cornia Family: GreenSmoothieGirl Makeover [part 4 of 4]

Our third selection is the video that moved me to tears as I watched it. You know how I feel about young moms. You knew I’d pick a young mom. This was our most difficult choice–but BlendTec and I were unanimous with each of the three picks. Samantha Cornia is only 25 years old and […]

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 […]

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 […]

Why does a green smoothie come FIRST as I change what I eat?

I teach classes to people who are beginners in nutrition, eating the Standard American Diet.   I teach intermediate classes to those who are more savvy, and even advanced classes in sprouting and fermented foods. Regardless of where you are, nutritionally, I have found that in every group, people experience profound health benefits by incorporating […]

chia seed and flax seed

So you’ve been reading about chia seed.   (I know this because I get lots of questions about it.)   Yep, I’m talking about the little things that grow the chia pet, now getting lots of attention as a power food.   And it is.   A highly expensive one (I bought a pound of […]

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 […]

health benefits of flax

Today I start blogging, in several parts, on good fats.   Hopefully Myth #3 of my Nutrition Manifesto has convinced you to get plenty of good fats in your diet every day?   This week, I’ll post a new YouTube vid showing how to make Flax-Veggie crackers to address ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS, today’s and tomorrow’s […]

you have the face you deserve

Q: Dear GreenSmoothieGirl, is that photo on the homepage really you at 41, or is it an old photo like Ann Landers used to use?   Did you retouch the photo? A: I shouldn’t even run this question, because it’s so self-serving.   But it comes from a European reader, and it’s funny, no?   […]
