Good for Kids and Drunks
On January 1st, my wife and I decided that we were going to make juicing an integral part of our diets. We have been juicing twice a day since and the benefits have been outstanding and the results (I'm down 22 lbs) amazing. Having many of WS's books and seeing their push of the juicer that we purchased (the Beville 820) along with a portion of their website dedicated to juicing, I thought that this would be a great addition to our collection. I was wrong.
This book is full of fruit juices that are based more on taste (some ask for simple syrup, honey, agave) and less on the health benefits of juicing. Every recipe has an alteration below it to turn it into a mixed drink. Really!? Additionally, there are no fancy creative drinks like you would expect from WS. The pomegranate juice recipe calls for Pomagrante seeds honey ice cubes and sparkling water. How is that a creative juice worthy of being put in a recipe book?
I would steer anyone clear of this book. Try the green drink diet book or the juice fasting bible. They tell you the benefits of each ingredient and have recipes for specific ailments or conditions.
