It’s a long and winding road to good nutrition!
In my first newsletters, I told you a little about the rocky path to health that my family and I traversed. It’s not very often clear and linear, that path, is it? You try a lot of dumb stuff, yucky recipes you throw away, before you end up at the truth—and that’s if you’re lucky. (A lot of people spend an entire lifetime following false prophets and believing false information. Like the folks who put all their faith in the barbaric practices of oncology, or the crazy dietetics of the Atkins Diet, for instance.)
The good news? That the failure of all the dumb stuff you tried before (drugs, Atkins Diet, etc.) were useful in one sense: they help you recognize the truth when you see it.
The longer and more twisty that path, the more likely you are to recognize the beauty and efficacy of pure, simple truths. Like the one GreenSmoothieGirl.com is dedicated to: that eating an unadulterated diet of whole plant foods is a savior in a thousand different ways.
There’s the thing you’re preoccupied with now. It might be cancer, or psoriasis, or leaky gut syndrome, or Epstein Barr. An affliction that’s kinda wrecking your life right now, or someone close to you.
But the crazy thing is this. Not only are your chances of addressing all degenerative disease and energy issues HIGHEST with a diet approach (and everything else I’m teaching on GreenSmoothieGirl.com), but you’re going to have so many unexpected health and wellness benefits, you’ll barely be able to count them at the end of a year.
Once I took RESPONSIBILITY for my own health and my little son’s, I undertook my own private health course. (I found that health and nutrition education in traditional institutions were heavily influenced by industries like meat, dairy, processed foods, and pharmaceuticals.)
Although my program 12 Steps to Whole Foods is a crystallized version of the education I underwent for 15 years, if you’re a reader, you can immerse yourself in the very best books. I’ll give you a leg up, because I read a lot of dubious stuff. Here’s a link to the very best, my favorite books by authors you can trust:
To Your Health,
p.s. The first thing you should do as you’ve decided to get healthy is invest in the most important tool in my kitchen: the BlendTec Total Blender. It’s so much more than the best tool ever for making mixed drinks at your next party. You’ll be a green smoothie chef in no time at all!
