After just a week of juicing for breakfast and an afternoon snack, I have to say that I am hooked and look forward to trying veggies and fruits of the exotic nature that were eschewed before due to the " How do I prepare this?" factor.
Natalie Savona has a way of mixing together fruits and veggies that would normally make you think, " Ugh...that sounds awful." but after trying a few root veggies and citrus fruit combos of hers, I've found her little comments about each drink are spot on.
Under every recipe is a Star Chart that rates the following:
Energy, Detox, Immuinity, Digestion and Skin. One to Five star rating of what exactly that recipe will help you in whatever area you feel you need. This is very nice as you can flip right through the book when you have a raging cold and look for the 5 Star Ratings on Immunity to see what produce you have on hand to help nourish your body.
An example of a recipe: #130 Easy Morning
1 stick of celery
1/2 inch of ginger root.
I prefer this now over regular orange or apple juice in the morning. So do my kids, who are 7 and 5. They also enjoy putting the fruit into the juicer and watching it get pulverized. YAY!Read more ›
1. Brilliant,logical layout
2. Non overwhelming recipes (for those of us who don't want to live in the kitchen)
3. Surprisingly informative, from the basic fruit/ veg nutritional facts at the start to the 1 to 5 star rating after each recipe. Brilliant.
I love this book. It is my favourite, and as a raw foodist, I have stacks of books.
If you buy it, you'll see what I mean.
The only downside to this book is it is mostly fruit and doesn't have many vegetable juicing recipes. Carrots are used, but for the main ingredients there isn't celery, spinach, parsley, etc. If you're looking for an introduction to juicing and want to get into it slowly, I would recommend starting with this because the fruit mixtures are great and tasty and then you mix a little carrot in them and as you continue, experiment and include more vegetables.
Overall, great book!
If I just wanted a good book about store bought alternative juices then this is excellent...
Kale, the worlds super food is hardly used in any of these, with it being as good as it is you would think there would be a chapter with this in it, no! there are a few chapters with viggies but far less than fruits.
I have two other books that have many more good "Green" recipes but not nearly as easy to use, they are complete books with data, facts nutrition info (including calories) one is called Juicing by Michael T Murray, the other Juice Fasting and Detoxification. These have lots of good recipes, BUT these books are not just for that so there are not nearly as many as in the book I'm reviewing here.
So all in all it is a good book if you just want some pop or store bought alternatives, but not if you want to go on a health kick or juice diet.
