Blake Lively’s Intoxicating Detoxification

Intoxicating Detoxification

Click here for a larger image

Sweet, bitter, mild, and fresh—this drink marries many tastes into one beautifully proportioned, and completely addicting, combination.

  • 1 cup kale
  • 2 leaves Swiss chard
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 1/2 small beet
  • 1/2 cup pineapple
  • 2 medium green apples
  • 1 sprig fresh mint
  • 1/2 medium lemon, peeled
  • Juice.

I fancy myself as a foodie, because man, oh man, do I love to eat. I come from a Southern family, so my taste leans more towards butter and sugar than veggies; if they’re battered in cornmeal and fried, then I’m in! Growing up, I was interested in creative preparations of vegetables that were able to mask their flavor. Then a few years ago, I had a juice that changed it all for me—a mix that’s better than any po’ boy you’ll ever eat. The vegetables in their purest form are refreshing and palate cleansing, while the sweet notes of the fruits and mint make it both quenching and intoxicating. Now I can get my dose of veggies in a delicious way and feel proud doing it. And boy, does is counter the guilt I feel when pulling out the ice cream. —Blake Lively, actor

Review

The Juice Generation is driven by the mission of making juicing and blending accessible, exciting, and even more importantly, a long-term, happy green habit.” (Salma Hayek)

“Juicing helps feed my soul and feed my cells and the carrots help me read the fine print.” (Katie Couric)

“I come from a Southern family, so my taste leans more towards butter and sugar than veggies. A few years ago, I had a juice that changed it all for me—a mix that’s better than any po’ boy you’ll ever eat. The vegetables in their purest form are refreshing and palate cleansing.” (Blake Lively)

“I am ruled by my juicer. Anything green that's not nailed down ends up being juiced. If my wife is right and you are what you eat; I'd rather be lean and green than hot and beefy.” (Jason Bateman)

“I feel like I'm being rewarded with every sip, especially with the green juices, and watching my children drink all those greens is the greatest feeling, knowing they are consuming all the right nutrients.” (Naomi Watts)

“Juicing is definitely a part of my regular diet. Having fresh juices is mandatory for me, because it makes it easy to get all your veggies down.” (Kristen Bell)

“Juice cleanses are the perfect way to get back on track after you've had a weekend full of consecutive pig-out sessions. They're also just an easy, great way to do something healthy for your body.” (Gayle King)

“Juicing was the beginning of a deeper understanding of nutrition. I’m pushing myself to go as green as I can with juicing and keep the fruits to a more modest percentage. I feel better and it keeps my energy more even.” (Edward Norton)

“Making healthy food choices and preparing them takes a great deal of time, often time that I don’t have. Juicing takes the work out of the equation. I can’t think of anything that makes me feel as good and is as easy to do.” (Michelle Williams)

“I started a personal juicing program, which has had a profound effect on maintaining high energy levels, clear skin and fast-growing, healthy hair.” (Martha Stewart)

I absolutely love this book and would recommend it for anyone who is starting out in the juice world.

We've tried probably 20 or more of the recipes, and so far they are all quite good.

I've juiced sporadically over the years, but after reading the Juice Generation I was convinced (and empowered!) to make it a regular part of my diet. The delicious recipes are accompanied by nutritional information, inspiring testimonials and gorgeous photography that make the juices so tantalizing you'll want to make one right away. It's a great guide for people who don't have experience juicing, as well as for those who consider it essential to their lifestyle.

If you're interested in starting to juice, you might be thinking you can get away with improvising. But I've found that particularly when it comes to the green juices, it's easy to wind up with icky, bitter messes.

I'm really glad I took the leap and bought this book. The handful of recipes I've tried so far have been absolutely delicious, and I feel clearer and more energetic already.

If you want a few recipes to throw in a juicer in order to make yourself feel better about binge-ing on potato chips and Haagen-Dazs the last five nights, look elsewhere. If you don't care enough about what you eat to read a few lines of text and perhaps feel inspired toward what you are creating (and forgot the utility of a gift receipt), don't pick this up.

If instead you are truly interested in how a unique institution's efforts can be transformed into a powerful additive to enhance your diet, and you can bear a few stylistic embellishments that may detract from frank readability, grab this book. Just have the right expectations. This is a compilation by someone truly involved in the practice (art?) of making delicious, wholesome juice. The recipes are excellent, and if you happen to visit New York City any time soon, you may be fortunate enough to try them right in the store. This book is not meant as a quick binder-reference. It's about slowing down, thinking about what you eat, and enjoying a few sips of something truly good.

Update: The recipes are fantastic. Everything I've tried, normal or obscure has been delish. Tearing recipes out of book and putting them in sleeves in the binder worked for me to have an easy time flipping through looking for recipes. I am not interested in the other details or why certain celebs like juicing.

Original review:

I was given this book as a gift. My biggest gripe is that the juice recipes are mixed into long winded chapters that I have no interest in reading. The chapters aren't broken down by fruit or vegetable, which is logical... But in phases. What are the phases? I'm not sure, but there is three of them and each phase contains a handful of recipes. There are no dividers helping you locate the recipes. You have to flip through the book to find them. As I said, they are poorly organized so if you wanted to make an apple based juice, good luck finding it.

At first I decided to take pictures of the recipes and print them out, but have decided to just instead rip the recipes out of the book and put them into a binder. Also, there are a few pages of recipes written on a decorative colored photo background making the text impossible to read (the page that tells you how to make nut milks, the page with the kale recipes are two examples). They should have put all the recipes in the back of the book, pictures on their own pages and little blurbs about there three phase plan in their own section. I have a few books on juicing and this is the most useless one for simple recipes, unless you are actually interested in delving deep into the topic and wish to journey in the three phase model. I'd prefer the cliff notes.

I tried wholeheartedly to drink green smoothies with Green Smoothie Girl because there was no waste but I never benefited from the drinks because I never felt good like I do with plain juicing, which removes all that fiber. I do have SIBO/IBS, so I assume I was not absorbing the vitamins and minerals because the fiber had to be digested. Also the taste of greens was not that good and while I dutifully swallowed it, it was not really tasty, but this book has given me a green drink that I ENJOY drinking. I cannot believe how good the juices taste and it opens up your own creativity once you realize it can be done. Like the book says, if you don't like celery, then you aren't going to like it in your drink. Although I like celery, I don't like much, so I just added a bit less celery.

I have a LOT of health books and while there is not much new in the beginning of the book for me, the recipes are wonderful and the book is inspiring. I've drank more juice since the book arrived than I could've imagined, and even my teenage daughter is drinking them with me this time and not hiding. haha
And there are also other drinks, like ginger-pineapple-celery or orange-pineapple-beet drinks. Yum!

He calls pureed fiber drinks "blended" drinks, not smoothies. Juices are made into smoothies by adding in coconut milk, banana or avocado, etc.

I've been juicing off and on for a number of years, and was looking for something to help me make tasty green juices that aren't so high in sugar. This is it! He takes you on a green journey, starting with lighter green and progressing to darker green in three phases. (There are also some non-green juices and smoothies, but the primary focus is on getting green.)

He also does a really nice, simple job of explaining "why we love..." [carrots, kale, limes, etc.] in various sections of the book, and then features a handful of recipes with the spotlighted ingredient. I enjoyed reading those as a reminder of all the good stuff happening in my body as a result of drinking the juices. There is also some good info about "superfood" ingredients like goji berries, maca powder, etc. All-in-all, an excellent juicing and smoothie book. We've tried probably 20 or more of the recipes, and so far they are all quite good.
