Welcome to Green Health Bird!
Green Tips, Tricks, Recommendations, & More
I created this website as a place to share the incredible knowledge, tips, and tricks that I’ve been gathering since I began my green journey in 2009. In that time, I’ve learned that with the right habits and skills, it is easy being green.
If you look around, it’s not hard to see that there is an increasing consciousness about the food that we eat and how it affects our health and the world around us. Food – real food – is powerful. It has power to nourish and to heal. Best of all, food has the power to prevent.
I’m very interested in prevention. I want to treat my own body right so that I can live in the best health possible for a good long life, and more importantly, I want to keep my husband healthy after his batter with cancer and his successful healing.
My life has changed so much since I started incorporating green smoothies and green juice into my daily life. I could never have imagined how good I could feel by starting each morning by blasting my body with the powerful phytonutrients of green vegetables.
I hope that you find this site to be helpful, and please, if you have any questions, just ask.

Recently, I realized that the delicious Banana Nut Bread Tea from David’s Tea that I’d been enjoying includes artificial flavouring! What a drag!
