Being one who juices on a regular basis, I was curious about this book.  And, as a recipe book it's great.  There are tons of juice and smoothie recipes.  There were many fruit and vegetable combinations that were new to me and I appreciated that.  The author also includes a chapter with juice recipes that are focused on specific health issues.

One thing I would have appreciated was an index.  It would be nice to look up a recipe by specific fruit or vegetable.  Still, it's a book that is loaded with recipes and information on juicing.  Perfect for a seasoned juicer or someone new to the game.

Thanks to First Wildcard for the opportunity to review this book.  You can read the first chapter here. You can purchase your own copy here.

Sounds great. I'm happy to learn about this book. I have been making a smoothie every day for breakfast for a year and now I've just started making them green. I was afraid to go green but now I'm loving it. I'm always looking for new recipes.

Oh, I need this book. I just discovered I'm anemic and green juicing would really boost my energy.

I am wondering if there are any recipes in that book for diabetics. I have to be careful of using juice to get carbs, because they usually have a lot of sugar in them, but it would be nice to see a book that has some juice recipes that would work for me. Excellent review today!

I need to get this book. I used to make smoothies every day, but haven't for 6 months or more. I recently bought a Ninja Kitchen System 1200 and this book would come in handy!
