Steve and I both like greens, but unlike other foods, that we make sure we have on hand or at least replenish when finished, greens don’t fit into our lives in the same way. Sure we like salads and we eat a lot of them, especially Steve. But again, we haven’t made an effort to […]

Chlorophyll Is What The Green Is All About

I lifted my five-week deadline for the GREEN DIET, since it didn’t produce any weight loss in that amount of time.
