Yep, this is why we went to Bakersfield last week...to watch the Green Smoothie Girl in action. I had been following her blog for a few years and when I read she would be in California, only 2 hours away, I couldn't resist.
Plus Kim and Kris attended her presentation in Utah a few months back and they loved it.
Robyn Openshaw aka The Green Smoothie Girl, claims that drinking a large glass of raw vegetables and fruit can have MASSIVE affects on your health. She drinks one quart a day and gives a pint to each of her 4 children. Since the years doing this, they have had no strep throat, no infections, needed no antibiotics.
Her story that lead her to this way of life is very interesting, and well worth reading.
What I like about her too, is she does not talk about changing all your eating habits. She just focuses on the Green Smoothie, claiming if that is all you do, you will be getting 12-15 servings of fruits and vegetable a day "going into every cell in your body."
I also learned that Mitt Romney is her cousin. Not that it matters, just interesting. Also that she was a professor at BYU for 7 years.
Here's a little demo of HOW to make a Green Smoothie, if you are interested.
But don't forget to read her story!
Can I just add here that Dennis likes these now.
He has watched me drink a version of these for months,
but since the GSGirl lecture, he's on board with me, giving them a daily try. We'll see.
Here's the text between Dennis and Kim while we were waiting for the GSGirl to start:
We are getting ready for the Green Smoothie Girl's presentation in Bakersfield. Boy are we excited!
Kim's text back:
Seriously? You will love love love her presentation!! I wonder if she'd remember meeting us I have her course - 12 steps to whole foods and love it I think Jill is going to love that - how cool for both of you In what city and what would she know you by? Kris and I went to her presentation at the zermatt in Heber. We met her and she loved that we were twins so we took a picture together - we got talking about our businesses too which she was intrigued by
(I wanted to quote Kim...so you wouldn't think this is just something old people are interested in.)
