There was a lot of great information in this book. I liked how the book divided some of the recipes by what the drinks can do for an individual, like energy or brain power. Nice tasting recipes also.

First of all, we jumped on the juicing bandwagon after watching some crazy documentary on Netflix. Yes, we were bored or something. So anyway, after researching overpriced juicers, we finally settled an amazing product (also on Amazon). I talked my hubby into letting my buy a book...and the reviews on this one were good. I couldn't agree more with the prior reviews. The layout is easy to follow - and I LOVE that it appeals to both juicing and smoothies. We actually do both now as well. If you are new to juicing, like we were, I highly recommend this book over any other...I glanced at some at the bookstore and they are ridiculous in terms of ingredients you'd basically have to fly overseas to personally track down to fulfill their unique recipes. This book is realistic and all of the recipes are pretty good. The nutritional info is accurate and helpful. We prefer the fruit juices over the veggie juices, but we're still early on in the process. A word of warning to newbies: don't juice and try to save it overnight or for a few days...doesn't keep so well.
