two readers tell me how they feel, eating better

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Nov 18, 2010

Just want to share two emails I got on the same day. Not just to show how fun my job is–hearing about how people are getting healthy and overcoming challenges–but also so that YOU, reading this, can feel the enthusiasm of Nina and Elise as they have begun to truly feel better by ramping up whole foods in their diet:

Thank you for these emails [she is referring to the GSG newsletter]- In spite of my shopping traffic on your site the past month, I’m not much of a spender. HOWEVER…. Getting back to basics with a great blender and wheat grinder as well as new ingredients has been really neat. Although weight loss wasn’t really my objective, I am losing weight and feeling better AND I’m accidentally converting others to “green smoothies” this has been a life-altering discovery for me and I just wanted to send a quick thank you!


Hello Robyn!

I just had to write and tell you thank you for writing your books, creating your web site and videos. My husband and I were introduced to green smoothies by a Naturopath who we have been working with. She has been working on a protocol for us but we do not have the money to pay her right now so having your book has given us the information we have been wondering about in the meantime.

We have been making the GS for about two months and have seen the weight fall off and we feel great! We are trying hard to learn how to move to a raw diet. With a three and one year old it is a perfect time to learn together!

We have been publicly drinking the GS and have shared the recipe and your web site with MANY people! We are in a church of about 60 families many with young children and we have converted about 1/4 so far. It has been shared on our Facebook page and trickled to some out of state friends. My husband is in the Navy and is getting some of the sailors that he works with to drink this goodness too!

I am passionate about learning about better nutrition and how it affects our body. I have been sharing with my friends about our changes and how they have helped so far. I have a few friends whose children are affected with allergies and other sicknesses that the doctors are just guessing at. I wish that I could transfer my brain to them so they could grasp what we have learned and just try eating that which God provided from the earth for us.

Thank you again for sharing your information! We would love to have you come visit us in Maine -I will do a bit of digging to see if there is a spot big enough to host you.

    Amen! We’re Just getting into green smoothies and health whole food eating also. Robin, I love the videos and all the information you make available to us. Bless you for helping us all get healthier.

    P.S. We tried making the nut/coconut milk from your recent post, excellent, I think we’ll be buying the coconut from your group buy. Any thoughts on how to convert this freshly made coconut ‘milk’ from shredded coconut into coconut ‘water’ for use in your pink smoothies? I’m guessing just dilute it or maybe use it as is, I don’t know, but young Thai coconuts are hard to find and I’m worried about pesticides used during shipment from Thailand to the USA. Seems like organic shredded coconut is a great option for making your own coconut water. Thoughts??

      RJ, I would use that coconut milk, but diluted by half, for Hot Pink Smoothie. Good idea!
