    I like green smoothies They are indeed tasty as this book states and definitely a health benefit I did learn quite a bit about just how beneficial they are from this book, which I was glad to know ButVictoria Boutenko is kind of a weirdo After three months of drinking green smoothies, she claims to salivate over green weeds she sees outside while taking walks with her husband and she mimicks chimpanzees she watches at the zoo by pulling the leaves off of nearly plants to eat them She ten I like green smoothies They are indeed tasty as this book states and definitely a health benefit I did learn quite a bit about just how beneficial they are from this book, which I was glad to know ButVictoria Boutenko is kind of a weirdo After three months of drinking green smoothies, she claims to salivate over green weeds she sees...

    Not too happy with this book Green smoothies are good, and they are a great simple way to addvegetables and fruit to your diet I highly recommend them But this book is not good Full of pseudo science nonsense If you are going to try green smoothies then for equipment all you need is a regular blender not the very expensive version the author tries to sell you by directing you to her website Also, if you drink green smoothies hopefully it will improve your nutrition not mak Not too happy with this book Green smoothies are good, and they are a great simple way to addvegetables and fruit to your diet I highly recommend them But this book is not good Full of pseudo science nonsense If you are going to try green smoothies then for equipment all you need is a regular blender not the very expensive version the author tries to sell you by directing you to her website Also, if you drink green smoothies hopefully it will improve your nutrition not make you salivate over weeds like Boutenko claims happens to her Finally, the book only contains 16 pages of recipes at the back, the other 173 pages are nonsense kooky testimonials, and after all that the recipes are not so varied or interesting to have made it all worthwhile My recommendations are if you must read this book, borrow it from the library Look on the internet for green smoothie recipes Many people sharecreative ideas than Boutenko Or just get started rip up some raw kale add it to the blen...

    Go green and go, go, go Whether you re new or, uh, should I say green to the green smoothie bandwagon or have been riding the revolution for some time, Victoria s updated classic is well worth the read We ve all heard the repeated urgings to eat your greens which makes sense in nutritional theory, but may not always be so practical in lifestyle reality Luckily, as Victoria s book hammers home, drinking your greens can not only be an easier way to get them in your diet, but pulverizing t Go green and go, go, go Whether you re new or, uh, should I say green to the green smoothie bandwagon or have been riding the revolution for some time, Victoria s up...

    What I liked about this book was the concept of making green drinks giving you a choice in between just eating greens as they are and juicing them.I found this idea useful and have adapted some of the recipes in the book for use in my daily diet, as although I m a big fan of green juices, you do need some fibre each day as well and just chewing mountains of spinach gets a bit much after a while.Juicing vegetables is best as it means you absorb farnutrients from them than when you re just What I liked about this book was the concept of making green drinks giving you a choice in between just eating greens as they are and juicing them.I found this idea useful and have adapted some of the recipes in the book for use in my daily diet, as although I m a big fan of green juices, you do need some fibre ...

    I once got pleasantly, energetically high drinking about a quarter of a cup of some beautiful emerald colored parsley juice, so I am definitely open to Boutenko s claims that green smoothies can help us feel much better But the author s recommendation to buy a Vitamix, and her comment that she d burned up several blenders making green smoothies, was a turn off for me I d love to get in the habit of drinking green smoothies, but I cannot afford to buy a Vitamix.For those who have or can procu I once got pleasantly, energetically high drinking about a quarter of a cup of some beautiful emerald colored parsley juice, so I am definitely open to Boutenko s claims that green smoothies can help us feel much better But the author s recommendation to buy a Vitamix, and her comment that she d burned up several blenders making green smoothies, was a turn off for me I d love to get in the habit of drinking green smoothies, but I cannot afford to buy a Vitamix.For those who have or can procure a Vitamix, here are my thoughts on Green for Life The book is light on science what little documentation there is is buried in the Notes at the end of the book and heavy on cured my X testimonials and the author s own subjectivity However, I found the book to be a good, basic, hopeful introduction to why and how to eatgreens The idea that greens should be considered a food group in and of itself makes a great deal of sense Finding ...

    Good recipes, horrible writing.I m sold on the idea of green smoothies but unfortunately Mrs Boutenko s writing and research completely ruined this for me This book is full of poor writing coupled with wild assertions and hackneyed personal research Apparently in Mrs Boutenko s eyes the only qualifications needed to make nutritional and dietary claims are to have at one time been grossly overweight and to have then lost that weight through a certain dietary program Her opening diatribe ag Good recipes, horrible writing.I m sold on the idea of green smoothies but unfortunately Mrs Boutenko s writing and research completely ruined this for me This book is full of poor writing coupled with wild assertions and hackneyed personal research Apparently i...

    This is a book you can read in a couple of hours Its author, Victoria Boutenko, is extremely enthusiastic about greens and has done her homework Take some of her claims with a grain of salt She is a raw foodist and a bit eccentric ie she thinks her Russian mother who swam in the river by Chernobyl and died of cancer could have been cured by green smoothies I decided that she crossed those boundaries because of her enthusiasm for her subject matter I encourage everyone to give the green s This is a book you can read in a couple of hours Its author, Victoria Boutenko, is extremely enthusiastic about greens and has done her homework Take some of her claims with a grain of salt She is a raw foodist and a bit eccentric ie she thinks her Russian mother who swam in the river by Chernobyl an...
