Book Review~The Juice Lady's Big Book of Juices and Green Smoothies

I bought a juicer about a year ago, and, to be honest, it rarely got used.  That has all changed now-I had the opportunity to review The Juice Lady's Big Book of Juices & Green Smoothies by Cherie Calbom.  The author is a clinical nutritionist who dealt with numerous illnesses in the past.  There are more than 400 recipes in this book!

I was excited to learn some good juicing and smoothie recipes, but I quickly realized this book is much more than just recipes.  The first chapter is titled All About Juicing, and  is full of the basics  of juicing, and lots of information on the nutritional components of juicing.  I learned a lot from this chapter.  The recipes are then broken down into chapters like 'Old Favorites' and 'Green Juice Recipes', to name just a few.  This makes it easy to get to the type of recipe you want.

I think my favorite part of the book is the chapter titled 'Juice Remedies and Rejuvinators'.  This chapter has recipes to help with all different ailments/problems such as 'Allergy Remedy' and 'Hypertention Helper'.  What a help to be able to grab this book and find a natural remedy to your problem. 

At the back of the book are Appendixes with shopping and resource  guides to help you.  Cherie Calbom is the author of other books relating to diet and food/juicing.  You can visit her website at www.cheriecalbom.com

Here is a picture of my juicer, ready to go, and the first juice recipe I made, Plain Janie. Yummy!
