Join me in the Food Revolution Summit

I’m inviting you to join me in the Food Revolution.

I participated in this event last year, and I learned soooo much, as well as got incredibly inspired by all the amazing people and the information.

(In fact I was so inspired, that I decided to use a similar slogan for my website: “Heal the body, heal the planet…beginning with food”).

Bestselling author, John Robbins is sharing personal interviews of 23 people who are leaders in movements for healthy, sustainable, humane and delicious food. And you can join in — for free!

(If you don’t know who John Robbins (the host) is, you’ll be so inspired by his story. John Robbins could have inherited the Baskin-Robbins empire. But he walked away from the money and the power. Why? He simply didn’t want to devote his life to selling ice cream after realizing it makes people unhealthy. So he decided to make a change. Over the last 25 years, his books about healthy eating and healthy living (including bestsellers Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution) have sold millions of copies and been translated into more than 30 languages.)

Here is how it works. Every week, the Food Revolution Network hosts three interviews, and sends out a letter with a wealth of up-to-the-minute tools and resources. These tools can help you and your family to thrive and to make a difference in the world.

5 Arguments For Plant-Based Diet

This is an issue I’ve been struggling for many years now time now. I’ve been trying to switch to 100% plant-based diet, but I have to admit it’s been difficult.

It was a great event, with great speakers and informative presentations, including Jeffrey Smith who is the leading spokesperson on the dangers of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Right now the GMO battle is heating up, big time. It’s time to educate yourself and start taking action. Now…

Say NO To GMOs! Now Is The Time To Demand GMO Labelling!

Genetically modified foods are everywhere, causing health and environmental problems without us even knowing it, as formal safety testing or food labeling is not required for these organisms. In Europe Monsanto’s practices have been banned. I have read about people with severe allergic reactions who go to Europe, where they do not indulge GMO food, and they have no problems. I’ve also heard about Europeans who do well eating in their country, who come here and suffer with terrible gastric disturbances eating our food, until they return home.

If you think you are safe, think again.…

If you had a trillion dollars, what would YOU spend it on?

GreenSmoothiesPower.com is not just about greening your diet.

It’s about greening your entire life and the planet.

The number and enormity of problems facing us today seems insurmountable: sharp health decline of the entire population, lack of money for healthy school lunch programs, broken health system, environmental destruction, social injustice, upcoming energy crisis, and high unemployment.

These issues are pressing, and yet it seems that there is never enough money to fix any of them.

So, if you had a trillion dollars, what would YOU spend it on?…

Why Buy Organic: Organic Food Contains More Nurtients (Part 2)

In the first part of Why Buy Organic? I talked about the pesticides, herbicides, and other toxic substances that are used to grow conventional produce.

However, toxins in conventional produce is only part of the story. The other important piece, is the amount of nutrients in conventional vs organic produce. While certainly eating conventional produce is better than not eating plant foods at all, organically produced fruits and vegetables contain much higher amounts of nutrients, and therefore are more nutrition-rich and health promoting, than their conventional counterparts.

If we care about the nutrition that we receive from our food, we absolutely must not ignore the quality of nutrients plants receive from the soil because the quality of the soil in which the plants grow has a huge influence on our health and on the health of the animals that eat those plants.…

Why Buy Organic Foods: Pesticides on Popular Produce (Part 1)

The fruits and greens that I use in my green smoothies are fabulous foods, full of vital nutrients that are supposed help keep our bodies strong and immune to disease, right? Well, sort of. The average conventionally grown apple has 20 to 30 artificial chemicals on its skin, even after rinsing.If you’re eating non-organic celery today, you may be ingesting 67 pesticides with it……

How Eating Bananas Impacts Our Environment, Plus A Delicious Banana-Less Recipe

I’ve been reading a lot about green living and sustainability lately. I thought I’ve been doing OK with eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, and eliminating most of junk foods and fast foods from my family’s diet and – although it’s still far from perfection – I’ve been pretty happy with the relatively low impact on the environment that such a diet has.…
