Marilyn Robinowitz resides in Houston, Texas with her husband and partner of sixty years. She takes great pride in being an 81-year old physically fit grandmother, with gray hair and biceps. As a volunteer naturalist at the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center, Marilyn has interpreted environmental education to elementary school age children for 14 years. She started making shakes with her grandson, then garnered feedback from more children, and from family and friends.
Once you have stocked your kitchen with the key ingredients, you will always be able to make a shake. You will not have to make frequent trips to the grocery store–– a delicious and nourishing snack will always be at your finger-tips. That is because the entire premise for this book is one of simplicity and ease.
