Green Smoothies taking Utah Legislature by storm?
On March 5, by invitation, I spoke to the spouses of the Utah State Legislature. Some of them are longtime GSG readers. Stan Lockhart, whose wife Becky is the Speaker of the House, is the biggest ham we’ve ever had, racing me to eat a plate of greens before I can make a blenderful of green smoothie for everyone. He’s a delightful person and I’m very excited if green smoothies are now being served in the home of our Speaker of the House. Check out the video Kristin made—Stan bares green teeth and all! (Then read the VIP’s who attended, at the bottom of today’s blog.)
We had lots of fun and I was frankly a little starstruck meeting women who have great influence for good. Thank you for inviting me! I hope together we use it to put some solid habits in place to improve the health of my home state!
These are some of the spouses I met:
Stan Lockhart, former State Republican Party Chairman, husband to Speaker of the House Becky Lockhart (one of my heroes)
