- 1 cup kale

- 1/2 cup pineapple
- 2 medium green apples
- 1 sprig fresh mint
- 1/2 medium lemon, peeled
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
“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 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 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.
These are fantastic recipes! I used to get free juice recipes from wherever and a few were complicated, or required quite a few ingredients that never ended up tasting good. Each recipe in The Juice Generation was easy to follow with a clear description of what you were to expect to taste. Many of the vegetables and fruits that were required in each recipe are to be reused in many other recipes, each with very different and delicious tastes and textures, so that you don't just use collard greens in just one juice or smoothie recipe, but in many, without dull or bland tasting results. This juice and smoothie recipe book deserves an award. Your money will be well spent on this book no doubt, you will not be disappointed. I haven't.
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.
I recommend it as a way to improve or enhance one's health as outlined in the book. It is a great way to consume a lot of vitamins, etc. in a small amount of time. Give it a try and see what it can do for you.
