I’m in love with Katie Thompson

Robyn and Matthew

I went to this concert with my BFFs Kristin and Matthew.  Katie Thompson is a Broadway singer / songwriter who was in town doing a concert and album launch party. We were on the front row. (Here’s a photo of Matthew and me.)

Kristin and I sat there with our jaws dropped from beginning to end. Enjoy a couple of Katie’s songs (or more on YouTube, and for sale on iTunes) here and here.

Matthew hosted an afterparty at his house and we were out way too late. I asked Katie to participate in my Lillith Fair of Health and Wellness that I’m organizing with a NY Times bestselling author and a fitness guru. She’s in! She said she’d write a GreenSmoothieGirl song. More info to follow…I can’t wait!

Write me a paragraph about why you are a green smoothie girl (or guy), or what rocks your world about 12 Steps to Whole Foods. And I’ll send the winner the two Katie Thompson albums I bought for you. Send it to

Whoever tells me the best stuff wins, and I’ll post the winning entry here. (Make sure to include your physical address so I can send you the CD’s!)

    Hi Robyn,

    I have always been into health and wellness. I have been a Vegetarian for many years. Unfortunately, about 4 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with stage 3B Cervical Cancer. My children were young at the time and I was scared because it was so advanced, that I went through daily radiation for 5 1/2 weeks and Chemo once a week for 5 weeks. During this time, I was eating regenerative whole foods. These are all Chinese herbs that are whole, organic live foods. The dietician of the hospital wanted me to stop everything that I was doing because she didn’t know much about it. I cut back, but didn’t stop. I consulted many alternative doctors who suggested I eat raw. I didn’t think I could do it, even though that was pretty much what I was eating anyway and didn’t know it. At my last chemo session, the Radiological Oncologist and the dietician came up and couldn’t believe how well I did with all my treatments. I stayed within 2 pounds and didn’t even look “sick” I told them it was because of what I ate. Since then, I continue to keep surprising my Gyn. Oncologist. My scar tissue is shrinking, tissues are healing, which never happens with radiation. She says that radiation is the “gift that keeps on giving”. Best of all, my cancer is gone. My mom had been drinking green smoothies for a while now and kept telling me to do the same. I couldn’t get over that green color. I wanted to help others lead healthier lives so I became a Holistic Health Coach. Since I have to advise my clients to eat more greens, I decided to try the green smoothies again. I love them now! I actually look forward to making them. My mom and I tell each other what kind of smoothie we make daily. Not only am I drinking them, I tell everyone about them; the benefits, recipes, etc… I will never be without my green smoothies. Hopefully one day, ALL my scar tissue will be healed! By the way, I getting certified as a raw food chef this month.

    Green smoothies rock because through them I’ve started on the road to health after 61 years of problems. Hair had gotten thin and it grew back in. 25 lbs of weight loss. Mind clearing. Skin clearing and some increased energy. As I’m not where I want to be (still have daily symptoms that affect my life) I’m still learning about whole foods and need to fine tune what I’m doing so I can get completely there. Would love to win this. Thanks SO MUCH. Carol

    I have just started down the road to eating healthier and more raw. I feel so much better, but I have a hard time sticking with it. I have a large family so sometimes I just go for fast, not healthy. I know raw can be fast, but I don’t have a lot of team players here. I have been so inspired by your videos and blog. I watch a lot of the videos with my kids, getting them somewhat on board has really helped. Now they beg for smoothies… but not with too much green in them. Still, it’s a journey and we have just started…and miles to go. I probably will buy your 12 steps program, because my green friends rave about it, but I don’t have it. Thanks for all the support I find here. It really helps.

    After gaining and loosing the same 5 lbs. FIVE TIMES on an organized weight loss plan, I changed from counting fats, calories, and fiber to just eating/drinking GREEN SMOOTHIES! I was looking for a reasonable fast to do for Lent that would keep my energy up, but focus me on this Holy time of year, and help me drop the weight. With 5 kids, I needed something simple, really healthy, and tasty! After watching several of your YouTube videos, I took the plunge. For 50 days I only ate green smoothies or healthy pureed soups. I ate as much as I wanted – sometimes 8 eight ounce green smoothies a day! In 50 days I lost 26 pounds! My energy is fantastic and I never feel hungry! My kids beg for some every time I make them, so we’re all increasing our fruit & veggie intake and making positive changes in our lifestyle! Thank you Green Smoothie Girl for helping me look like myself again!

    I am a green smoothie girl, because it keeps me healthy in trying to fight the toxic effects of working in a hospital operating room where all kinds of bacteria, germs and deadly diseases float around and try to attach themselves to you. One has attached itself to me , but I have cleared the disease by taking care of my body with the green smoothies, orgainic foods and supplements and exercising.
    By the way I’m one of the happiest and healthiest healthcare workers in my hospital.

  8. I’m a huge believer in eating as nutritious as possible. Green smoothies are the best way to really pack in the nutrition for staying healthy and healing problems from the life prior to becoming a “green smoothie girl”.

    My naturally slow colon keeps me on the straight and narrow as it operates best on high quality natural raw foods. My colonoscopy showed a black colon which is usually from over use of laxatives which was my case. That grossed me out. The doctor said he couldn’t even read it because it was so dark. I only have to use laxatives once in a blue moon now with my new diet. And when I return in 10 years for my next colonoscopy, I intend to have a pink colon!

    “12 steps to whole foods” is a great guide to getting started. Especially if this information is new to you and if you need to train your family. Gradual changes are more permanent than fast changes.

    In March 2010 I began clean eating as well as drinking a daily green Smoothie. I received a vitamix as a birthday gift in July and that certainly upped the anti! I have always grown a garden and have added kale and beets to my crops! I immediately lost 25 pounds and have never felt so good! And now, the most exciting part!!!!! After 10 years of trying-I’m pregnant and I credit clean eating and green smoothies! Thank you so much!

    Once I was fat and now I am not
    It wasn’t a miracle a plan or a plot
    I’ve tried them all, those diets just failed
    And my waist got bigger and my skin looked pale

    Then one day I searched the ‘net for a clue
    Drink my way skinny “now that I can do”
    So I plotted and planned and beets and spinach I did buy
    My husband thought I was crazy I will not lie.

    My blender and I are now the best friends ever
    Hiding beets and kale in my smoothie it is quite clever
    Now my weight is dropping and my skin is clear
    Thanks to Green Smoothie Girl now it’s just compliments I hear.

    We are so fortunate to have found the Green Smoothie Girl website. My husband kept talking about this lady Robyn and insisting we purchase a $400 Vitamix blender and the next thing I know he is building garden boxes to plant kale, spinach, argula, beets and chard. Everyday now we make

    I am the Green Smoothie Girl at work. I work for a dialysis center and a lot of our patients have Type 2 diabetes or high Blood Pressure that has caused their kidneys to fail. I have often thought that if these patients had done something 20 years ago with their diet that maybe they could have reversed the diagnois and prevent the future diagnois of kidney failure. My heart goes out to each and everyone of them because they have to sit in a chair for 4 hours, 3 days a week with needles in their arm in order to live.

    I was diagnoised with hereditary Breast Cancer July ’09. I caught it extremely early. I chosed to have my breasts removed and there were no signs that the cancer had spread so chemo and radiation were not recommended. I felt that the Lord literally gave me my job so that I could literally learn from my patients. I was going to learn all that I could about diet and nutrition. There is a saying that when the student is ready the teacher will appear. I saw a car with and when I got home I went to Robyn’s website and ordered The Green Smoothie Diet.

    Everyone that knows me knows about green smoothies and the 12 Steps to Whole Foods. My whole family is on board with me and it is wonderful. I had the opportunity to teach a class on Green Smoothies to a group of Breast Cancer survivors July ’10 and demostrate how easy it is to comsume all those wonderfuls greens and fruit. A few months later my friend Judy called me the Green Smoothie girl and thanked me for such a life changing knowlege and I was so grateful that I was able to influence someone’s for the better. It truly felt great to be in your shoes for just a moment.

    Their are so many wonderful benefits I personally have noticed since I have been drinking my smoothies, more energy, better sleep, better digestion, and my favorite is that I am happier. I wish that when a person goes to a doctor for depression that the doctor would suggest drinking green smoothies for 30 days and come back for a follow up appointment, before prescribing an antidepressant drug. I have taken back my personal well being and I will think twice before ever consuming another prescription drug again.

    Thank You,

Everyday now we make our green smoothies. Robyn’s knowledge has changed our lives. We will continue to work towards a healthy diet and lifestyle. We have purchased the x-Zubi radiation protection stickers and are now giving them as gifts. Next we are purchasing the water filteration system…. and the list will go on and on. I refer to Robyn as our new health guru.

    I’m a GSG because of the little things: the 10 year old who comes home
    from school asking for a snack of salad; the 8 year old who’s eyes
    light up at his turn to make the smoothies; the 6 year old who revs
    everyone in the family for a healthy dessert; and the 3 year old who
    no longer has yeast infections, and eats her greens first at dinner
    before anything else.
    Most especially…I love feeling good, and I have things to look
    forward to: like being confident in how I look as the pounds come off.

    I am a green smoothie girl because I choose to be. Two years ago I suffered a major health challenge – being pregnant! Everything that could go wrong did. Gestational diabetes, gallbladder disease, etc. I was a mess! In desperation to help me heal my body and to help me cope with the remainder of my pregnancy, my mother bought a Vita-Mix for me.

    Although I didn’t go all the way into 12 steps or green smoothies all the time back in 2009, I can proudly say that I am getting there now. I LOVE my green smoothies and my whole foods. I have come to realize that my body really doesn’t like meat but it loves whole foods and green smoothies. I start nearly every day with Robyn’s granola and I miss it when I don’t eat it at least once during the day. I still have challenges but am making progress. I believe the biggest impact has been on my family. My husband drinks green smoothies every day and he hates vegetables and greens. He actually tried the hot pink breakfast smoothie and liked it! I almost fainted when that happened.

    My son who thinks that chicken nuggets are the only food group now drinks a small glass every day and I am encouraged with this beginning for him. My daughter who enjoyed momma’s healthier lifestyle from the beginning through breast milk and good homemade baby food, loves her green smoothies and screams for her bananas (GS). Personally the biggest change that has happened for me is that my thyroid was completely defunct and now I am at my lowest levels of hormone in probably 15 years. I am striving to get off the medication and believe that with the lifestyle choices I am making that is possible.
