About the Author

Julie Stafford is the highly acclaimed author of the bestselling Taste of Life cookbooks, which have sold more than 1.5 million copies worldwide. When her husband, Bruce, was diagnosed as having cancer, Julie became vitally interested in the relationship between diet and disease. She modified her favorite recipes and invented new ones that were low in fat and cholesterol, had no added sugar or salt, were high in fiber, and tasted delicious. Publication of her first Taste of Life cookbook followed Bruce's remarkable remission.

More About the Author

Born Melbourne, Australia, Julie grew up in Western Victoria. She studied art, becoming an art and craft teacher. Married in 1977, Bruce and Julie ran a sheep farm until Bruce was diagnosed with well-advanced Hodgkin's Lymphoma, in 1980. Bruce's survival odds were bleak. Julie researched the link between diet and disease, and how diet might be a way to rebuild Bruce's immune system. In changing her family's way of life to help Bruce beat cancer she changed a generation's eating habits. Julie became Australia's fastest, and biggest selling cookbook author, selling a record 1.2 million books in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and America. Her book, 'Taste of Life's' runaway success was followed with 22 more cookbook titles, all best-sellers, selling more than 2.2million copies. Bruce beat the odds. Though many called 'Taste of Life' a cookbook, others called it a love story. In between cookbook writing, Julie was a popular presenter on cooking shows Australia-wide, New Zealand and America. She wrote, 'Turn Obstacles to Opportunities' (later republished, and retitled 'Stepping Out'). A motivational best-seller, this book put Julie on the lucrative speaker's circuit. 'The Seagull is her final chapter on an extraordinary love story.

Some basic juicing information is given along with lots of recipes. But some of the information on juicing is taken straight from Jay Juiceman's book, right down to a few unsited direct quotes. The part that bothers me is that she fails to give him any credit anywhere in the book, not even a recommended reading list. So if it's more juice recipes you're after, get this book, if it's more detailed information on juicing, get the book she quietly used as a source _The Juiceman's Power of Juicing_ by Jay Kordich.

Frankly, this book was kind of a disappointment. I bought it thinking it would have a lot of interesting recipes in it. "Over 200 recipes" is claimed in the cover. But many of these combinations I could have thought up myself and they are very simple. The soups, smothies, and sorbet sections are very short with few recipes. Also, the English terminology/spellings can be annoying. Nutritional breakdown of every recipe would be helpful, but it is just given for the fruits and vegetables. I am sure the nutrition changes somewhat when you juice something. The color pictures are also not even in the same section as the recipe, which is also annoying. However, the quantities given for the amount of fruits/veggies you need to make the juices will be helpful. It also gives some basic information on each fruit/vegetable and what they are touted for. This is not a terrible book, but just not what I expected. If you want simple recipes and have no creativity, this may be the book for you. If you are looking for in-depth information and better recipes, this is not what you are looking for.

I found this book an excellent information source for nutritional information on fruit and vegetable juices. It is well organized and indexed by primary fruit and vegetable and contains a section on spicy elements such as ginger root and garlic which can be used to add zest to the juice. Rather than a purely medicinal type book, it has recipes and illustrations for some really tasty treats. My favorite is a carrot parsnip combination with a little parsley ad lib. I use this book every day and recommend it to anyone who wants good health with good taste.

Format: Paperback
"Fruit and vegetables, especially in their raw state, contain living enzymes that are essential in the breaking down and absorption of nutrients." ~ pg. 1

When Julie Stafford says you will feel different in just a few days, she is quite correct. Try juicing and you will notice that you have more energy and feel more alert. She also says that juices help to speed up the body's metabolism. If you are wondering why fresh juices are better for you it is because store-bought juices are pasteurized (heated) and this kills the natural enzymes and destroys the vitamin C.

This book helped me understand the healthiest way to juice. Like there is advice on when to leave the skins on certain fruits and vegetables because the most valuable nutrients are often found just below the skin. There are also some tips on how to use the leftover fiber when baking or even when making soups. Two chapters cover the topic of vitamins and minerals in juices.

The recipes in this book are interesting and gave me some ideas about flavor combinations. Each chapter in the recipe section starts with one specific fruit or vegetable and then gives options for juice combinations. Some include:

Pear, Grapefruit and Pineapple
Mango, Orange, Pineapple and Passionfruit
Lemon, Mandarin and Pineapple
Blueberry, Pear and Lemon juice

After juicing for almost a week I've discovered that you don't really need to follow the recipes too closely. In this book weights of fruit and vegetables are given and I find that less helpful than just saying juice a pineapple and orange and an apple. I like juicing one entire fruit or vegetable so there is less waste. So feel free to modify anything in this book. I've had great success just using some of the flavor combinations.

I really enjoyed this book a lot. It has a lot of very helpful information regarding the benefits of a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. I keep it in my kitchen cabinet as a quick reminder of what each fruit or veggie is doing for my body as I juice it. I also use it when talking to others about the benefits of juicing.

One of the easiest books on juicing to understand. The vegetable and fruit combination "recipes" are short and simple to put together to provide the most satisfying taste.
