The Green Smoothie Bible Review
I was only interested in the recipes and had to flip through the first half of The Green Smoothie Bible to get to them, but for beginners, that first half offers a lot of information about raw-food eating. As other readers have mentioned, the recipes in The Green Smoothie Bible are very well organized. You can go according to season, but there are sections for kid-friendly smoothies, dessert smoothies, savory ones and many others; for weight loss, mood, longevity, cellular health, bones and joints etc.
Most of the recipes in The Green Smoothie Bible have ingredients that are easily found. There is minimal exotica; mostly that green superfood she likes. I also don’t believe I can get my hands on a tamarillo. A little bit of maca, yacon syrup, and mesquite powder-very little. If you’re not up to using that stuff, you can still get plenty of mileage out of The Green Smoothie Bible.
The back of The Green Smoothie Bible features several informative websites for yet more information and recipes, so you get a lot of value. The only disappointment is that there is no appendix. I wish ingredients were cross-referenced for easy reference. I’d like to find recipes with what I have on hand or feel like eating, rather than skimming the whole book every time. Otherwise, in every way, The Green Smoothie Bible is a great book.
