The 2nd part of the book is so detailed and the research so thorough that I was completely caught off guard. I was on a happy little trip with her family one minute and the next I'm reading the 'dirty dozen' list on the most toxic fruits and vegetables - those that have the highest toxic pesticide residue. This is offset by the clean list.
The author has gone into great detail on how to prepare your produce for juicing and then goes into detail on nutritional value of most fruit, vegetable and herbs. There are lists of ingredients for Detox and Cleansing, best weight loss juices, and then sections on which to put together for best results. There is a COMPREHENSIVE section on vitamins and minerals and which F & V contain high levels and what each vitamin and mineral does for you.
I could write a review as long as the book because it really should be on the 'Must Have' list for juicing. This book is about health and nutrition not just juicing.
If you only buy one book on juicing - this is the book.
As for the information on the juicing aspect of this book it is good to see that you get a great idea on how good juicing is for you for the authors own experience. There is great information on what to juice and which ingredients contain what nutrients too. There are some great tips on how to prepare your ingredients which generally relates to setting up juicing for use with the Omega. If you have just picked up an Omega and would like to know how to start using it, this would certainly get you started.
In fact, the "tip" Deeter stresses the most is not to follow Omega's instructions for chopping produce. Jamming a whole carrot etc, down the feed shoot with the plunger may cause enough pressure for the drum to pull away from housing, leaking and possibly voiding the warranty.
The Omega juicer is one of the best investments Iv'e made and is a terrific product. "Juicing with the Omega juicer" is not. The fact that Omega features prominently in the title the cover photo and is mentioned 3 times in the description is a marketing technique and has almost nothing to do with the books actual content. There are a total of 2 pages which refer specifically to it, entitled "Care and Maintenance Tips for your Omega juicer". They would apply to almost every masticating juicer and are basically the instructions included with the manual written out longer and with the word "Do" (in bold type) at the beginning. Towards the end of this section, Deeter includes this "tip" : "...we managed to break the juicing screen that is used for making the juice. It was really our fault, although we didn't want to admit it- we dropped it down the disposal drain side of the sink and broke it trying to get it back out. But one phone call and not only did Omega send us a replacement they sent two!" Phrasing like "the juicing screen that is used for making the juice", is typical of the redundant style of the book.Read more ›
