Shailene Woodley crafts her lipstick from beet juice: ‘It’s totally awesome’


These are photos of Shailene Woodley on the set of Oliver Stone’s Snowden. She plays the exotic dancer girlfriend of Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s awkward Edward Snowden. They kissed in these photos, just FYI. Shailene’s wearing a wig that looks so much like her old long hair. Shailene looks cute with short hair, but her long hair was glorious. Some old hair photos are in the gallery.

Shailene has a new interview with Bon Appetit, which seems right up her alley. They usually do charming interviews about actors’ food habits. With Shailene, the charm has worn thin. She loves to talk about food in a smug way, sort of like the Goop of homespun remedies that everyone knew about already. (But Goop would never eat ants and june bugs — unless someone put a $4000 price tag on them, then she’d be game.) Here’s some wisdom from the McDonald’s-dissing lover of coconut oil. Her latest target seems to be craft services, which is the root of all food evil:

Fermentation is rad: “My favorite fermented foods are kraut and kimchi and kombucha, but the great thing about fermentation is that you can ferment just about anything. I sort of love that semi-rotten flavor, too. I make sauerkraut, kimchi and kombucha if I’m in a stable environment long enough to do it.”

Does she eat crafts services food? “It’s pretty much an absolute no. I bring my own food in the morning and at night. I go to work, then I come home and learn my lines, and then I’ll make dinner and use whatever I make for dinner as leftovers the next day. It usually has potatoes or sweet potatoes, a protein, and a vegetable. It’s an easy, quick thing to do every day, and then you can switch up the sauces depending on what you’re feeling like.”

This is gross: “I’ll definitely try almost everything. I was in Spain recently and there’s a Catalan dish that’s cooked with pigs’ feet. I ended up really loving it. It was so gelatinous and that felt so healthy for my stomach. It was good to have so much gelatin in there.”

Shailene knows coffee: “It’s my morning ritual. I put a little bit of coconut oil in there, too. It’s coffee, coconut oil, and butter. I’ll put some cinnamon or cayenne in there sometimes. I put it all in a blender because I want it to be latte-y. You’ve got to try it. People love it for a reason.”

Her latest home remedy: “I recently learned a lot about thyme. It’s really good for your respiratory system. In the morning, if you wake up and your respiratory system feels a bit off, thyme is a great cure for that. And, it’s an easy remedy, considering most of us have thyme in our kitchens. You make a tea out of it.”

She uses beets for lipstick: “It’s true and it’s totally awesome. Beets are amazing. If you roast them you’ll get a better lipstick. They’re not as potent and they don’t stain the same way if they’re raw. So I roast them first and then just dab a little of the juice on my lips with my finger.”

[From Bon Appetit]

Shailene also raves about bone broth again if you need to hear more on that topic. Man, why does she dislike craft services? They provide some increasingly healthy options on film sets. Bon Appetit even even did a cool feature about craft services last year. Shailene likes to know how her food is prepared, so I guess it’s a big deal to bring her own meals. She talks about GMOs in this interview too. She’s very concerned about putting anything into her body if she doesn’t know where it came from. She sounds exhausting.

The idea of beet juice as lipstick shouldn’t surprise me. Beets are awful. I feel the same way about beets as Shailene does about craft services.



Here’s Shailene’s 2013 hair. I forgot how addicted to highlights she was back then. She probably used lemon juice while she was sunning her vadge.

    If my eyes were rolling any harder they’d be bowling balls.

    • Maum says:


      I can’t with pretentious people.

    • Snazzy says:

      I swear, mine are rolling so hard I have a migraine…

    • klein says:

      I don’t think I’ve every loathed someone quite so much based entirely on their interviews and without seeing them in a single film. Incredible

      • Christo says:

        In agreement with everything above.

        I. JUST. CAN’T.

        Nice thing: the long hair works.

      • Tanguerita says:

        so true. I can’t wait for her to go away or to find a new publicist who will make her shut up.

    • Helo says:

      Yes, before reading ANY article/interview about Woodley, I’ve found it necessary to install ball bearings in the back of my eyeballs so that they may roll freely.

    • Shaz says:

      Not me – I can’t WAIT to make totally ah-some beet juice lipstick. It’s sounds so rad.

    • yep says:

      That has to be the best comment ever.

  2. Lilacflowers says:

    Coffee? My primary care doctor has declared war on coffee. She and Shaleine wouldn’t last long in the same room.

    • Crumpet says:

      That’s strange. All the research shows it is packed full with antioxidants and coffee drinkers live longer than non.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        Yeah. My doctor does say to not have more 4 cups a day because the caffeine is troublesome.

    • MtnRunner says:

      She’s describing bulletproof coffee… it’s a new fad among distance runners looking to fuel primarily on fat. It’s ok, but I prefer straight up cream.

  3. Kali says:

    Of course she does…

  4. Silvia says:

    yeah, I’m glad she loved her gelatinous pig’s feet and beetroof lips and butter coffee while snorting some thyme…
    Is she for real? Who on earth thought anyone, and I mean anyone would be interested in her goopesque food advice? She sounds pretentious but thinks she’s such a great advice giver…yawn. Excuse me while I’m gonna ferment me a cabbage because I am now in a stable enough environment to do it.

  5. lana86 says:

    lol, she s entertaining

    • applapoom says:

      Me too!! I love reading posts about her. She cracks cynical ol’ me up.

    • Reece says:

      Me three. She cracks me up.
      Idk maybe because I grew up in LA so I’ve known people like her my entire life. Yes they are exhausting but I still can’t hate ’em.

    • md1979 says:

      I love her youthful earnestness about this stuff. She makes me laugh, and the beet juice thing is actually pretty awesome.

      I’d much rather read her interviews about boiled pig hooves than ANYTHING a Kardashian or a real housewife have to say.

      • sionainne says:

        Yeah, she doesn’t offend me, either. I would advise her to stop talking about her lifestyle so much because it does seem to annoy people, but she’s an adult so whatever. I actually relate to most of what she does (runs and hides) except the pig’s feet. I won’t eat genetically modified food, know about clay and bone broth (which is not the same as regular broth or stock like people keep posting) ,make a lot of my own stuff etc. but I don’t keep on talking about it because I think it rubs people the wrong way and I don’t want to sound preachy. It’s just my thing. Anyway, I think she is just being herself and don’t get how people think she sounds pretentious…she is not hawking $1,000 beauty products like GOOP, she would make them herself. That’s not pretentious.

    • CL says:

      I get so excited every time I come across an interview with her, because I know she is going to say something completely whackadoodle and I am going to laugh SO MUCH.

  6. Snazzy says:

    She is really one of those actresses whom I refuse to go pay and see on the big screen because she’s so GD annoying. And while I want to see this Edward Snowden movie, the more she keeps yapping, the more the trend will continue …

  7. MEGAN says:

    She’s cute with long hair, not so much with short hair.

  8. The Other Pinky says:

    Hehe. This may be the first time that the actor playing a real life person is far less hotter than the subject. Edward Snowden > Joseph Golden Rabbit.

    Shaylene looks like the lady friend atleast.

  9. Kiddo says:

    I like beets in salads. Also, beets and red cabbage can make natural lovely Easter egg dyes.

    • Abbott says:

      Beets are delicious. I have no clue what Bedhead is talking about.

      *rips up Grateful Bedhead fan club pillowcase*

      • longhairdontcare says:

        Roasted beets goat cheese and walnut salad with raspberry vinagrette! Heavenly

      • Isa says:

        I’ve just added beets to my list of things to try. Not adding the pig’s feet. I’ve also got artichokes and kale on my list. Lots of veggie talk on cb lately.

    • Snazzy says:

      Do you mean beets with your Kale salad?

    • taterho says:

      I love beets too. Huh. Pickled beets are the bomb. I can’t shake the southern in me.

    • mimif says:

      My hippie mom used beets to color the “frosting” on our birthday “cakes” (both of which must have been made from organic sawdust), and also use it to stain her cheeks, so Shailene gets a pass from me on this one.

      • MtnRunner says:

        yeah, since red is my signature color, using something natural for coloring seems ok to me too. But god, she sure sounds pretentious and high maintenance to me.

    • Franca says:

      Do people in America not eat beet and kale often? Why is this a fad? Here, it’s the kind if food your mother makes you eat once a week your entire childhood. Very very common.

      • mimif says:

        You must live in California, Franca, because that’s about all I ate growing up. 😉

      • Isa says:

        Franca- I lived on junk as a kid. My mom was either working nights or working off so she bought a lot of snack food. When I married my husband I knew how to make chicken and dumplings and stuff from a box. Over the years I’ve been learning to cook and trying new things. I never had Brussels sprouts, cabbage, snap peas, black beans, asparagus, spinach, kale, squash, or kiwi until the last two or three years.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Growing up in the middle of the US, we grew beets in our garden and ate them every year.

  10. dr mantis toboggan says:

    Here I thought her morning drink was a cup of smug washed down with freshly squeezed farts

  11. JB says:

    Is addicted to highlights a bad thing? Should we not be getting highlights anymore? I have an appointment to get my hair done today and I kind of wanted to go a little lighter but I don’t want someone to look at me after and be like, “That girl is such a Shailene.”

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I think they were just being sassy. Highlights in the spring/summer make a lot of sense and they look great when done well. Go for it! 🙂

    • Bedhead says:

      I was indeed addicted to highlights at one point. A few well-placed highlights look good, but my stylist kept talking me into getting more! Finally grew that stuff out & chopped it off last month.

    • JB says:

      I ended up getting what my stylist called “babylights.” Teensy tiny highlights and tons of them, more foil than I have ever had on my head before. It made for a much more natural look, still my own natural color with a few sun-kissed bits, and minimal upkeep. It took two hours just to get them all in but I won’t need to go back for a touchup for 10 weeks. Two thumbs up from me!

  12. Sam says:

    She sounds like she exhausts herself doing all this. I mean, there isn’t really anything she says that, taken alone, isn’t sort of okay. It just sounds exhausting taken together. It sounds like all she does at home is cook and make food.

    And I hate when people say, “Know where your food comes from.” Easier said than done! Unless you’re growing and making that food yourself, you’re taking some kind of risk by eating. Small farms are awesome and all that, but they’re not all upholding some “pure” standard. Some of them now are also purchased by and owned by large corporations that “greenies” would probably balk as supporting otherwise. It’s a lovely platitude but it’s actually pretty hard to do.

  13. MEGAN says:

    Why the hate? She isn’t Goop- just a young woman who likes to live a healthy lifestyle. I’d rather read about her recipes than read about Jlaw’s farts. Also I don’t detect any smugness, she seems down to earth.

    • Christo says:

      I don’t hate her. That would be too extreme. I do, however, find her to be extremely annoying. I mean….does she ever talk about her craft or current movie in interviews? I totally get that she is trying to live a healthy, organic, natural, (fill-in-the-blank) life, but her interviews, whether she realizes it or not, seem to diverge along the path of her becoming that annoying person at Whole Foods who can ramble on about the 50 virtues of kale, coconut oil, etc. And, yes, while I coincidentally happen to be a fan of the bulletproof coffee that she reference in her interview, having Shailene inundate us with her food choices is rather played out at this point.

      At this rate, she will have her own show on the Food Network or, worse, have her own blog/website.

      • md1979 says:

        Maybe she was focusing on her food philosophy because the interview was for Bon Appetit – a food magazine – I’d imagine they have zero interest in her movies. Plus I’m assuming she’s just responding to questions they ask her, and they didn’t ask about her movies / acting.

    • Kitten says:

      I don’t hate her, she amuses me.
      I’m not sure that she’s “smug” per se, just excitable and lacking self-awareness. At least she seems to have interests outside of selfies and hair products.

      • md1979 says:

        @Kitten “I’m not sure that she’s “smug” per se, just excitable and lacking self-awareness. At least she seems to have interests outside of selfies and hair products.”

        You totally nailed it!

    • Wolf says:

      I agree. She’s young and seems genuinely excited about what she’s into, doesn’t seem to care what people think. I see how it could be taken as smug though, but I don’t take it that way. At least she has personality and isn’t a cardboard cutout like so many other actresses.

    • Zoe says:

      Agreed. I don’t see why eating healthy and organic means you’re pretentious. I must be one of the most smug people walking the face of the earth then.

    • JB says:

      I don’t hate her either. I don’t necessarily want to take all of her life advice but I think she’s kind of cute. I remember reading about how she starts each morning by shouting, “Exciting day! Exciting day!” and thinking it was complete ridiculousness but then I have to admit I actually tried it and it kind of worked. It put me in a good frame of mind, at least, which doesn’t always happen naturally that early in the morning.

    • Nikki L. says:

      Because a lot of her “advice” is reckless and stupid. It’s a terrible idea to chelate heavy minerals from your body without a doctor’s supervision, it’s stupid to advocate picking wild plants in the forest if you don’t know what you’re doing, and there are no medical studies claming any of the health benefits which she has described for her other crap.

  14. Little Darling says:

    To be honest I do too, the beet stain is absolutely beautiful, it plumps your lips, it’s free of artificial dyes and has amazing staying power. I also make my own deodorant, I use clay regularly to release toxins, coconut milk as a deep conditioner, my own homemade elixirs for when I’m sick, apple cider vinegar when I break out…I’m not so preachy about it, but there is something refreshing about making your own goods and staying clear of all the crap they put in the makeup/products.

    • Kitten says:

      I’ve been drinking apple cider vinegar almost daily for the past couple years. I mix it with distilled water or sometimes I mix with seltzer, a bit of Stevia extract, and some organic ground ginger. It’s so refreshing and amazing for a hangover. lol

      Thanks for the link about the beet lip stain. I’m wanna try it!

      • Little Darling says:

        I drink it too! Straight up in the morning, and then throughout the day. Sometimes with stevia, sometimes in a tea with honey. The health benefits are Amazing!!!

        Try the stains, so easy and pretty.

      • Algernon says:

        I drink a glass of water with apple cider vinegar first thing every morning. It helps with indigestion, and if you ever feel heartburn coming on, drink some and it stops it immediately.

      • moomoo says:

        Thanks for the tip on your ACV drink! I regularly add it to water (great before meals to increase satiety and delay sugar absorption to avoid a big spike-then-crash in blood glucose) but never thought to add ginger or stevia.

        Always love the way beets color my lips when I eat them but I’ve never thought to make a homemade stain to keep on hand. I used to use a beet-based Aubrey organics lip gloss but it was too bright for me…if I made it myself I think I could tone down the bright fuschia a bit.

      • Bronson says:

        This also works great with fresh lemon juice too . I drink a 16oz glass of warm water and half a lemon first thing every morning, and I find that it not only helpd with digestion, but the warm water is also a nice little kick start to your brain and body to wake you up if you’re feeling groggy.

    • Crumpet says:

      What toxins does clay release?

    • Hmmm says:

      My grandma in Mexico would use beets to stain her lips. Limes for deodorant and for bug bites. Most of the things she used on her body were from her garden.

      • Darlene says:

        Your grandma sounds great. 🙂 <3 My grandma used a lot of aloe from her garden, and today I have some growing in mine that are descendants of her plants.

    • prettylights says:

      I’m on board with a lot of natural remedies so I see where she’s coming from. I drink 2 tablespoons of ACV every day and use it in my hair once a week. I use coconut oil on my body, jojoba oil for my nails/cuticles, kaolin clay on my face as a scrub, almond moisturizer mixed with grapeseed oil for my face, and olive oil soap to wash my face. I make green smoothies with kale or spinach, veggies, fruit, and honey. I have a lip stain my friend made with beet juice (but I also have regular lipsticks too). I use honey on wounds or acne instead of antibiotic ointment and it works even better at healing and combating infection. I regularly drink natural herbal teas and if I’m sick I make tea with honey, lemon, and garlic.

      I’m not as ‘natural’ in my lifestyle as she is but honestly I think people get way too stuck on buying products full of chemicals, especially skin care, when natural products work just as well if not better sometimes. Going natural cleared up skin problems I’d been having since I was a teen.

      I kind of like hearing her tips since I’m a person that’s interested in those things, so she doesn’t come off as pretentious to me, just concerned about her health and the environment.

    • md1979 says:

      @Little Darling – how do you make your own deodorant?

      • Little Darling says:

        @MD1979 I use a mix of organic beeswax, Shea butter and coconut oil (melted in a double boiler) arrowroot powder, baking soda and essential oil (I use lemongrass because I love the fresh smell but you can use any oil as long as it’s pure like doTerra or Young Living). I also make a detoxifying one with a bit of tea tree oil and bentonite clay.

        Google search the ingredients, or just natural deodorant and SO many recipes come up, or you can check Pinterest as well!

      • rudy says:

        I just use straight up tea tree oil for deodorant.
        A little dab will do ya’.

  15. Kitten says:

    She’s describing bulletproof coffee as if she’s the first person to discover it.

    Her hair was SO amazing when it was long. I’m a big supporter of short hair, but I think it’s almost a crime to cut it when it’s that gorgeous. Maybe it was a huge bitch to take care of or something, but still….

    • Crumpet says:

      To be fair, she says “People love it for a reason.” But yeah, it does sort of sound like she invented it. I tried it for awhile – it was totally disgusting. And the whole mycotoxin thing is blown way out of proportion. Dude just wants to sell his coffee.

    • MtnRunner says:

      Yeah, endurance athletes have been touting it for awhile. It’s a part of the “fuel with fat, not carbs” diet.

    • Kitten says:

      I haven’t tried it but I’ve been meaning to–heard good things about it.
      I wonder if I could use ghee instead of butter?

      • Magpie says:

        You def could do ghee. I use raw butter, nothing else, and I’m too lazy to put it through a mixer.

  16. Veronica says:

    Oh God. I honestly worry about people like her because I was a pretentious little shit in my early twenties, too, but I didn’t have the world telling me how great I am at that age, either. I wonder if you can even grow past that stage and really learn to hear how ridiculous you are when you don’t have anybody telling you, “Stop.”

  17. cryforyesterday says:

    It actually sounds to me she’s really into the paleo/whole30 lifestyle. As someone who fell off the paleo wagon last year (cake is just SO GOOD) a lot of what she’s talked about are paleo fads/buzz words. I remember when everyone went crazy for the coffee with butter and coconut oil thing. It’s actually not bad tasting, but everyone seemed to want to use it as a meal substitute and errr no.

  18. leahpet says:

    So, she makes dinner at home, and then brings leftovers to work the next day for lunch? Sounds like most people I know.

    In other news, Crunchy McWoodley, water is wet.


      But at whose home? I thought this was the couch crasher who didn’t need/want her own place & stayed with friends always? Which would mean she’s stinking up someone else’s kitchen w/ all that fermenting.

  19. taterho says:

    To me she has completed a full circle. At first it was just “what the heck is she talking about???” Then it was off to crazy town and head on full blast into pretentious city. Now she’s come back around and I just accept that she’s into twigs and fermenting ooze. She’s harmless and it’s just funny now.

  20. Alma says:

    I was ready to hate her, but then she had to bring thyme into it and lately I have been recommending thyme to everyone. It is really great for coughs and sore throats! Now I can’t hate her or I have to hate myself – which I am also doing so we are kind of even.

  21. ToodySezHey says:

    I’ve become convinced that this chick is a test tube baby sired by a random California blonde and the essence of Whole foods and a Farmer’s Market.

  22. mazzie says:

    She eats clay – has she seen a doctor? I ask because it could be pica which is a sign of low iron. Granted, women tend to eat ice.

  23. Tetonbliss says:

    Shailene totally ripped off ‘The Bulletproof Executive’s’ coffee recipe and tried to make it sound like it was her own creation!

    • Ennie says:

      Well, she did say “people love it fora reason”, that would mean that other people has tried it. But yeah, she does talk like she is the first hippie ever.

  24. Patsy says:

    I had to laugh at the picture of her kissing Gordon-Levitt while filming! He’s probably wondering what the heck she ate that day and does he want to go there?

  25. Triple Cardinal says:

    “It was good to have so much gelatin in there.”

    I am so-o-o not going to touch that one.

  26. Algernon says:

    “lover of coconut oil”

    I have to say, coconut oil is a minor miracle. I have sensitive skin and can’t use a lot of chemical products, and coconut oil has become my go-to moisturizer. I use it instead of shaving cream (although you have to be careful to not let it wash down your drains lest you get a bad clog), and a little bit goes a long way as a substitute for lotion. I was telling my mom how I use it instead of lotion, and she started doing so, too, and she says it’s helping lighten/fade her varicose veins. There are so many uses for coconut oil.

    • Darlene says:

      I use it on my whole body, head to toe, and I use it for all kinds of cooking where I used to use olive or vegetable oil. It’s wonderful!

    • Qatar2 says:

      Question please: how do you use it without it getting down the drain? I really want to use it for a hair mask and like your suggestion about using it for shaving, but how and where do you rinse?

      • Algernon says:

        @ Qatar 2

        It takes some effort! I shave before I shower now, in a dry tub. I have a little bowl of water for rinsing my razor, and I keep a hand towel close to wipe down the tub when I’m done. The good news is, it doesn’t take much water, just a little bowl big enough to swipe the razor through, and then I throw the soiled water into the flower box. So far, it has not harmed my herb garden.

        For a hair mask it’s a little different. I make a conditioner of coconut oil and castor oil in equal parts (I use a 2/2 ratio), and the castor oil keeps the coconut oil from hardening too much. The thing with that, though, is I have found it’s better to rinse my hair “dry” before washing it. What I do is wet my hair, apply the oil conditioner, let it set for a bit, and then rinse with shampoo *without re-wetting my hair*. Then I rinse, and shampoo again. For some reason, my hair comes out less oily that way.

    • Qatar2 says:

      Great tips! Thanks!

  27. Wren says:

    Oh, I dunno, I pretty much do all the things she says and it isn’t that exhausting. So do my parents. Fermented foods are amazing but you do need to be in one place for a week or two to really make them. As a working actor that’s probably difficult. She only comes across as “omg I’ve discovered all this” because that’s exactly how the interviews are set up. There’s enough people who don’t do these things that make her sound crazy, but that’s true for anything even slightly “alternative”.

    I’m sure all y’all would think I’m insane if I was given a national platform to ramble on about all the stuff I do and eat. Mostly I just go about my business, being strange without comment. Actually I don’t even like to discuss it when people ask because they invariably look at me like I have 6 heads.

  28. TheVoice says:

    Why such hate for her? She was asked what she eats and does. She’s not telling you what to do. The world would be boring if everyone was the same. I see nothing wrong with going all natural if she can. Good for her!

  29. Mary Jane says:

    Can we bring Jennifer Lawrence back already? I am SO o’er this Shalene chick…

  30. katiebob says:

    While I think she generally sounds a little nutty about stuff, I actually have been doing some of the things for years that she is now talking about. I drink Kombucha, it’s great for your digestion and put coconut oil in my coffee…and add gelatin to tea, maybe I’m more of a hippie than I care to admit….

  31. Arielle says:

    I don’t detect any smugness at all. She seems enthusiastic about health, environmentalism and herbology. I’ve noticed that whenever someone discusses things like healthy eating or an organic lifestyle people perceive them as “pushing their views on me” when that isn’t the case. The media asks Shailene about these things and she’s clearly happy to talk about them. I don’t see her insisting that everyone needs to follow her lifestyle anymore than someone who talks about how much they love burgers and fries.

    I would much rather read about her bone broth recipe than yet another interview about baby weight or marriage.

  32. Jessiebes says:

    My lipstick is made from red wine.

  33. Norman Bates' Mother says:

    She sounds like a Polish grandma – bone broth, fermented food, mostly cucumber and sauerkraut, pig’s feet in gelatin, potatoes with every meal, beets as the most important vegetable and herbal teas are the basics of old-fashioned Polish cuisine my late grandmothers favored. If they knew I’ve ever ate at McDonald’s or ordered a take-out, they would lecture me about it for years to come. Although, my grandmothers wouldn’t know about kombucha, coconut oil-butter coffee or sun-vadging. Or maybe they would?

  34. I Choose Me says:

    JGL’s face in the fifth picture equals my face when it comes to Shailene.

  35. Hope says:

    I just gotta say, one of best friend espouses the *exact* same brand of stuff as Shailene. Like, verbatim. Bone broth, and gelatin, and GMOs and coconut oil in every other g0dd@mn sentence! It is seriously becoming a huge strain on our relationship because every encounter invariably involves at least tea and at most a meal and some after dinner activity. And food is easy to bring up when there is food present. Honestly, if she hadn’t been my friend since we were little kids I think I would be starting to keep my distance. I wouldn’t be surprised if Shailene’s friends felt the same. However, I’m sure the delivery of the information has a lot to do with how receptive others are to it.

    Can someone wake me when she’s 40? Because she seems really young and insufferable now but maybe she’ll grow up and realize how pretentious she sounded when she was young?

    While she does make my eyes roll somwhat, EVERYTHING she has said about living a healthier lifestyle actually is healthier. All jokes aside, I find it extremely discouraging that someone is cut apart so…severely…when talking about truly healthy superfoods like kale & beets. A powerful processed foods lobby has demonized healthy foods, just by ridiculing them enough and letting mob mentality do the rest. Vadge steaming: the mucus membranes allow medicinal products to be absorbed thru them, which can be more effective than ingesting them thru the gastro-intestinal tract. OK!? It IS a good thing~just because lay people don’t understand it doesn’t mean it doesn’t work.

    I really like Shailene. I find her refreshing. She isn’t judgmental just an intelligent, resourceful and unconventional young lady. She’s a refreshing breath of fresh air from the likes of Kim. I love hearing about her remedies and lifestyle. I always stop to read her interviews. I hope she has a long career ahead.
