The Big Book of Juices is a new edition of Natalie Savona's classic title, now with even more juices and smoothies and more than 250 photographs. It is founded on two basic principles. First, that juicing is easy if we simply adopt the habit of it; and second, that juicing every day is a delicious way to get healthy and stay healthy.
Following a comprehensive introduction to juicing, 405 different juice and smoothie blends are divided up into three central chapters: Making Juices; Making Smoothies; and Making Quenchers (juices with a little added something, such as soda water, herbs or spices). Every blend is given an at-a-glance nutrient profile (listing vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients), and a star rating on its merits as an energy- and immune-booster, a detoxer, and a tonic for the skin.
The recipes can be sourced in several ways: by fruit or vegetable of choice (the chapters are organized by main ingredient); by health benefit (an alphabetical chart lists approximately 50 common ailments or disorders, and cross-references them to the juices that will help overcome them); and by nutrient (a list is given of all the major vitamin and mineral nutrients, each with cross-references to the relevant recipes in the book).
The last chapter – a juicing reference section – includes the nutrient and ailment charts as well as suggested juice courses for detoxing and immunity boosting, making this the most practical and comprehensive juice book on the market.
