I just got this book. I wasn't too thrilled that this book shipped to a Walmart that was farther than the one I usually go to. In the end I was able to get my book and I'm about ready to start juicing and making my smoothies. The down side, I need a better blender and I don't have a juicer or a citrus press. I wish I could get an appliance that does all three.
This book breaks down all of the fruit and veggies and what their uses are. It has a 5 star system for each recipe but none are all 5 stars. At least from what I've already skimmed through. It has a solution for ailments at the back and it tells you which juice or smoothie to make if you have a health issue. It also breaks down a seven day drink week that consists of a basic intro, detox, immune power, all the way to the juice high weekend. Followed by that is a nutrient chart.
The one thing I don't like is it doesn't tell you how to make these. It tells you the equipment to use from just making juices to smoothies but it doesn't tell you how to make it. For example I don't know what this is I just flipped it open and is looking at a 'bloody cuke' recipe. It calls for 1 cucumber, 2 apples, 1 beet(beetroot). The star rating goes: Energy-3 stars, Detox-5 stars, Immunity-3 stars, Digestion-4 stars, and Skin-4 stars.
Each drink is broken down like this on each page and as mentioned before none of the drinks I came across equals out to all 5 stars.
It talks about the nutrients of each drink as well.
If this is something someone is looking to get into and is fresh in getting off the block like me to check this book out. It left me salivating over the pictures and I'm already going down the lists as to what fruit, vegetables, and appliances to get.
