What I found when the book arrived was that not only does Ultimate Juicing provide all the basic information one needs to make healthy and delicious juices at home, it also avoids the pitfalls of hard-sell promotional content("these recipes will work best with such-and-such brand juice extractor") and extravagant expectations for juicing's health and/or spiritual benefits. In 8 concise, sensible chapters, Rodnitzky describes the nutritional value of fresh-made juices; proper selection, preparation, and storage of produce; juicer selection (without the hard-sell: the juicers are described in terms of operation with brand names mentioned only as examples); and recipes for basic, health-boosting, exotic, and alcoholic juice drinks.
The core information and excellent variety of recipes easily offset the silliness of the recipe titles, and the comprehensive index makes the book a handy reference for everyday use in the kitchen. I would recommend this book for veteran and novice juicers alike, regardless of their physical fitness or spiritual level.
Overall I am not impressed. It's ok. That's about the best thing I can say about it.
While the Kindle publishing date is Jan of 2011 the paperback this Kindle book is based on is from 2000 and does not seem to have been updated in any manner. I don't recall sugar being painted as the devil it is today back in 2000 so I will let the author off the hook for adding sugar to so many juice recipes but it doesn't change the fact that is listed as an ingredient in a good many recipes and a few even call for lemon and lime soda! What is the point of making and drinking healthy fresh juice and adding soda?
Part of the reason I bought this book is because there is mention of a chapter that includes healthful boosters that will enhance already healthy juices while still keeping them flavorful - again the 2000 publishing date hampers this section as the only "boosters" mentioned are Vitamin C, Bee Pollen, Ginko and Echinacea. Obviously in the last decade many more supplements have come to light in terms of boosting health but of course they aren't in this book.
No wonder there are more than a few reviews mentioning how this book tones down the "juicing will transform your life" meme - following the recipes in here most likely wouldn't.Read more ›
