Some of the ingredients in this book include: lavender, powdered licorice, dandelions, powdered linden flower, borage leaves, acai berries, red raspberry leaves, stinging nettle, kelp, astragalus root, meadowsweet and apricot milk. While I've heard of these ingredients before I have no idea where to get them. The small sources section at the back of the book doesn't really give me any clues as to who carries which herbs. Most of the spices used in this book can however be found at your local grocery store.
This book is divided into 8 main sections which include:
Healthy Body Systems - A brief discussion of the endocrine system, immune system, musculoskeletal system, nervous system and respiratory system. There is a short discussion of hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, arthritis, osteoporosis, muscle spasms, anxiety, depression, memory loss, asthma and allergies.
Health Conditions - This is a comprehensive section organized alphabetically. It discusses things like cancer prevention, headaches, indigestion and water retention.
Each illness is discussed and remedies are given. The remedies include healing foods and herbs. Healing drinks are listed at the end of each section.Read more ›
Another thing-there are NO YIELDS ANYWHERE! So one juice will make 4 ounces, another will make 8-10. I'd expect some variation based on the age of the fruits and veggies but these recipes are all over the place.
It would be useful to have a note attached to each juice recipe with whatever nutritional benefits can be had by drinking it. Such as-cleansing, good for UTIs, full of vitamin C, hearty and filling, packed with anti-oxidants, etc. As published, you have to look up all the different ingredients in the previous chapters to find the nutritional benefits-confusing and a hassle.
- well organized (can find anything in a minute or so)
- intelligently written by someone who knows what they are talking about
- many delicious recipes
- huge variety of recipes
Unlike most juice books, this book has good information (both nutritional and medicinal). It also has: good introductory information for people just getting started, nicely laid out chapters on fruits and vegetables, really good indexing so you can lookup an ingredient and see list of recipes which use it, or lookup an ailment and see a list of recipes that might be helpful. It contains some very tasty recipes with clear directions for preparation. There are also beautiful color photos which are fun to page through and encouraged me to try new recipes.
Bonus: fun recipes for spritzers, smoothies, cocktails, frozen treats
Could be better:
One thing that could be improved: Listing nutritional information for juices at least at the ingredient level. For example, how much sugar is in 1c of carrot juice, vs. 1c of zucchini juice? How much B12 is in spinach juice vs. apple juice? This kind of reference information would be very useful for diet planing. So far, I have not found a good reference for this, but it would fit nicely in a future edition of this book (add a little nutrition table to each ingredient)
