Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Everyone wants to eat and drink healthier and one of the best ways to accomplish this goal is by creating your own juices using vegetables, fruits, spices, and other kitchen ingredients. You can be creative and make up your own, but it’s often easier to consult a recipe book and a good choice is Healthy Juicing: Delicious and Nutritious Recipes for Energy, Detox, and Weight Loss.

I’ve utilized many juicing books and found the majority of them worthwhile and loaded with delicious recipes. This book has 80 recipes and there are certainly several good ones among them. I like the ones that combine fruits and veggies into a single drink because then you get the nutritional benefits of both in a single beverage. There are lots of drinks like this in this book.

One of the plusses of this guide is the illustrations. There are pictures of most every drink, but as an added plus, there are also pics of the ingredients for most of the drinks. I have paged through lots of juicing books in my day, but this might be the first juicing book I’ve read that had pics of the ingredients. I also like the organization of the book and the added, informational tidbits about specific ingredients, nutrients, and more. And I like that not all the drinks require a juicer. Some of them can be made with a blender so even if you don’t own a juicing machine at the moment, you can still at least get started by focusing on the drinks that only require a blender.

As much as I want to highly recommend this book, there is one thing that convinces me to lower my rating a little and that is the lack of nutritional information. There is no mention of the calories, sugar content, vitamins, minerals, or anything else. At first, I thought maybe I overlooked something, so I took another look and scanned all the pages, then looked to see if maybe the nutritional info was tucked away in the back of the book. Nothing. This is a real shame, because it is about the only thing standing between this book and near perfection.

We can all benefit from getting more fruits and vegetables into our diet and juicing is one of the best ways to do this. Healthy Juicing is a good recipe book for those wanting to drink healthier and while it does include lots of great recipes and illustrations, the lack of nutritional data convinces me to lower my rating just a little.
