it was exhausting writing all those books

I got a call last night from my fulfillment company, saying we are getting low on 12 Steps: Complete Course, and I needed to autograph 200 books (The Green Smoothies Diet) and get them there by the next morning. I was leaving for Cade’s baseball game and then Tennyson’s and wouldn’t be home till 11…

California trip: Costco product review (part 2 of 2)

Today I’m talking about a product review / comparison of Trio Bars and Bora Bora bars at Costco, both of which I love. I wish they hadn’t discontinued Lara Bars, but such it is. (I met Lara about 6 years ago, and she’s a raw foodist who “walks the walk.”) Bora Bora bars are 180…

I have more energy at 42 than I did at 22!

Thanks again for signing up for my free newsletter.   See, I was just like you might be.   I found myself in a place I hated: sluggish, 15 pounds overweight, suffering with a variety of health problems . . . and I was only 25 years old! But that’s a story you already know…

Green Smoothie Testimonials, Part I

I have been enjoying the testimonials that have come in with the green smoothie questionnaires. Most of them will be included in The Green Smoothie Diet coming out June 2009. If you haven’t yet reported your own experience with GS after 30 days of drinking them, here’s the link–I am collating data to use it…
