Green Smoothie Revolution by Victoria Boutenko - Penguin Books Australia
A I mainly picked up this book for the recipes towards the back and I am very glad that is what drew me to this book as I will continue to use those but felt the writing of the book to leave much desired. Additionally it is filled with so much pseudo-science I wanted to vomit or go educate the author myself on the topic.
Again good recipes so if you are looking for that not a bad book but I would NOT recommend this book for the written information. There are so many other books out there on this topic that have REAL information and are not filled with the author's endless self promotion.

I have neither a blender nor a juicer and was attempting to figure out which machine I was to add to my kitchen. I've always been inclined to the blender for its diversity which is probably why I liked this book. I love being "right". I'm also searching for a quick easy mornning-on-the-go breakfast that will keep me full until morning snack time.

BE THE FIRST TO KNOW
The recipes look wonderful and I can't wait to try them. Turn off: raw food diet bent of the book. Not interested in a religion. I just want to be healthy. Now: blender shopping! Mar 19, Kristi rated it it was amazing. I understand finally!!! I haven't been able to stick to a raw food diet, or even a high raw diet.

I found myself bored, or sick feeling when I looked at my options nuts, oils, fruit I have been eating the wrong things and in the wrong quantity! This book and "raw and beyond" have both answered many questions I had and I recommend them both! Next up on my to-read: the revised edit I understand finally!!! Next up on my to-read: the revised edition of "green for life" read the original years ago, it was the book that started my path to true health, I've never looked back!
This book is more about the recipes and options than why to incorporate green smoothies.
The meat of the book includes many recipes for beginners and smoothie veterans. The ending appendices included two life stories and how smoothies impacted one man. There is also a summary of Victoria's journey to smoothies. The book also pushes a raw diet, which I'm not as inclined to incorporate, but the value of green smoothie This book is more about the recipes and options than why to incorporate green smoothies.
The book also pushes a raw diet, which I'm not as inclined to incorporate, but the value of green smoothies as an addition to one's diet? Completely sold!

Mmmm, spinach smoothies I forgot I even had this, but I'm flicking through it now and enjoying all the inspirational quotes the author added to each chapter, like 'We know the truth, not only by reason, but also by the heart' - Blaise Pascal and 'When the solution is simple, God is answering' - Albert Einstein.
I'm not sure I want my nutritional info guided by the heart, but she did quote Einstein, so that's instant credibility! What can I say, it was a phase. A delicious, delicious phase. Jan 04, Cori rated it it was ok Shelves: planned-preoccupation , non-fiction , food-and-drink , health. What intrigued me: This was a selection that fit really well with my smoothie building habit.
What I liked: If anything the book is short. What I didn't like: There were a lot of dubious claims. In appendix 2 Clent Manich lists out 18 benefits he has experienced from drinking green smoothies including whiter teeth and sweeter breath. Nov 17, Amy rated it liked it Shelves: nonfiction-directive , how-to , Good info about the why we should eat greens. You can tell she has a lot of personal experience informing her writing. I think she is rather close-minded about what you can put in a green smoothie beyond greens and fruit. She is against food combining, but others who write about green smoothies don't take issue with it.
It's your choice, but you won't find recipes with veggies in them in this book. Just greens and fruit, and a limited amount of other add-ins. Dec 08, Kiri rated it liked it. They cover all the same information and in fact look similar - about the same size, similar covers, but Boutenko's style is a bit over the top, and she doesn't favor additives like blue-green algae and phytoplankton and such, while Kristine Miles does.
There's nothing wrong with this book, but I would opt for the other one. May 19, Lisa X rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction. Anyone that owns a Vita-Mix blender needs to get this book. It has so many green smoothie recipes. There is even a section for kid-friendly green smoothies. Whenever I make a green smoothie for my 2 year old, he sucks it down. Little does he know there's a ton of spinach, kale or chard in it. It's brilliant!
The only complaint I have about the recipes is that every recipe mixes the fruit and vegetables with water. I use ice and a little bit of water so it's nice and cold. TCL Call : Just don't read the text in the beginning. It's a bit simplistic and has that feel of the zealoty new age healer which made me distrust the info and the recipes. Still, skip the beginning and look at the recipes and maybe you'll find some new ideas.
