This book is great for all levels of juicer; someone just getting into juicing, someone who is a regular juicer, and even expert juicers will find some great new recipes and guidance. From discussing the benefits of juicing, through how to select a juicer, to the holy grail...conducting a juice fast...this little book covers it all!
Now the bonus(s): This little book is beautiful! At 288 pages, the content certainly isn't "little", but the size of the book is perfect! At about 7" x 6" it's the perfect size to handle easily without being unwieldily. And the pictures? BEAUTIFUL!!!!
So, if you're on the fence between this book and others, we found this to be the most comprehensive, well rounded, easy to follow and informative for all levels. Further, it by far has the most recipes of any other book we've purchased. So, bottom line, purchase The Healthy Juicer's Bible with confidence, knowing that it's a powerhouse of great tips, information, pictures, and amazing recipes! Enjoy!
1. There are are more stories, more information (of which some I take issue with) than recipes. I believe the author has answered has answered these complaints by stating there are 47 juicing recipes in this book. That's not a small number of juices to sneeze at, but when you break it down by, "fruits & veggies I don't juice or can't find or that aren't in season"or I can't juice wheatgrass in my machine...the number seems to shrink. The juice recipes are from p. 135-172. 1-2 per page. The text of the book is 281 pages. If you are looking Purely for juicing recipes & not information this book is not for you. Remove half a star. There pulp recipes & suggestions though.
2. Benefits are not discussed...when I handed my BF a glass of juice he asked...what's this one do? Many other books breakdown the benefits of the recipes. I know collards are rich in magnesium, cucumber is hydrating, etc. in comparing to other books I own, it doesn't give that vital info. I need magnesium & adrenal boosters for example. I am familiar Veggies that give me that benefit, a beginner may not! I'd have to remove half a star for this one.
3. The masticating vs centrigal juicing machine argument...sigh. I do believe masticating juicers are best, but I own a centrigal juicer. And I store my juice, typically for less than 12 hrs. I juice during the workday. I am disappointed that Ms. Brock provided no scientific study/research to back her statement "you need to have a masticating juicer to store your juice". I have seen her conditions quoted verbatim on several websites.Read more ›
I am not a novice to juicing but I was still able to find useful tips. My only wish is that I owned this book when I first started juicing. Some of the topics discussed such as how to pick a juicer, what to do with pulp, how to store juice, how to stick to juicing etc. is what makes the book truly priceless. Further more, it does not only provide many wonderful and delicious recipes, Farnoosh teaches you how to make up your own concoctions. I routinely come back to the "What does and does not work together" chapter.
Throughout the book you will find other juicers' stories which bring the topic of juicing into real life. These are just ordinary people like us and it shows you that you can do it too! Enjoy the many benefits of juicing. I healed my eczema in 4 months!
