Phone Tree Review: Excellent! JUICE is a gold star resource as far as I am concerned. This book very thoroughly discusses the breakdown and benefits of juicing, cleansing and living well. The book was not only visually appealing, but it was also highly informative. It’s so good, in fact, that it deserves a place on my physical bookshelf. Readers will find this book to be simple and jam-packed with goodness. They will see, quite quickly, that it is not burdensome or heavy on tasks. I am convinced that they will want to try out the recipes right away. I would definitely recommend this to my friends, family and fitness clientele. Rating: 5/5 Stars Recommend: Yes
This is just the kind of recipe book that I like to read, plenty of recipes utilizing things I already have in the house. There isn't anything worse than reading a delicious-sounding recipe only to realize that I have to make a trip to the market to gather specialty ingredients. The authors, who are the founders of Pressed Juicery, give readers a wide variety of juices to choose from. I could tell that they are passionate about improving health by sharing the benefits of juicing. A great thing about this book is that the authors give readers a lot of ideas we can use to adapt juices, depending on our tastes. I'm not very creative in the kitchen and do not spend much time experimenting. However, while reading this wonderful book, I was inspired to be a little more flexible with my juicing. This book offers more than just juicing recipes. Readers also get recipes they can make with the leftover pulp. This really appealed to me because I hate to waste parts of the fruits or vegetables. There are also very simple recipes to follow to make your own almond milk. I've read about making your own almond milk in other books, but the instructions in this one were much easier to follow. Finally, there are very clear instructions for readers interested in doing a juice cleanse. I think anyone interested in juicing would enjoy this book. Experienced juicers will benefit from the recipes utilizing leftover pulp, and maybe get some ideas for a larger variety of juices. Readers new to the world of juicing will benefit from the clear instructions and explanations of the benefits of juicing. Anyone would benefit from the health benefits of juicing. It is a rare book that I will not lend out to friends. I usually only hang on to books that I use everyday or want to read again and again. This is one of those books that I will definitely hang on to! I received a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
