Exactly the right info for the juicing newbie
on November 19, 2012
I have never juiced before, but after reading this book, I know precisely how to begin juicing--how to choose equipment, what to be aware of health-wise, what to expect on a 3-5 day juice fast or cleanse, as well as the specific benefits of juicing a range of fruits and veggies. This book is a perfect resource for someone like me--a person who has heard of juicing and been curious about it but who wouldn't know where to begin. The book was well-organized (an index would be a great addition, though!) and written in such a way that the data and research were easy to absorb. I was impressed that the author addressed the benefits of incorporating any kind of juicing into your life (even just a daily glass of fresh orange juice) if you determined that you didn't want to or couldn't do a classic juice cleanse. There was a good balance of encouragement and caution. There are a ton of recipes with helpful tips on what order to add ingredients. I liked that most of the recipes only had about 4 items and the ingredients weren't some strange, hard to obtain item I'd never heard of. If you are looking for practical juicing info and have no idea where to being, this book is for you.
