Plethora of Recipes
You will probably find yourself surprised at some of the ingredients listed in this book.

With this book, you will find yourself using much more exciting ingredients like broccoli, ginger, and sweet potatoes. It will also bring some imagination to your sweeter and more summer centered juices, getting you to include things like watermelon, grapefruit, and beetroot along with other things you might not have tried before.

Juicing for Beginners: The Essential Guide to Juicing Recipes and Juicing for Weight Loss
Juices can be fun
The author of this book has shown just how fun making juice can be. Natural and healthy flavors don’t have to taste bad but instead can be fun and delicious.
Great for Losing Weight
People start juicing for a wide variety of reasons. If you are looking for recipes to improve your health in terms of skin, energy, or other issues, this might not be the book for you. But, if your main goal is to slim down and get in control of your weight, this book will give you some great ideas.
Recipes focus on the health benefits of fruits and vegetables that can help you lose weight by giving you the nutrients you need with a lower calorie intake than you would have by eating regular meals. It is very clear about what juicing can do for you, not misleading the reader into thinking that it is a ‘miracle cure’ but instead should be used along with exercise to see the best weight loss results.
Not much substance
While this book does have a great array of delicious recipes, there is not much substance behind them. Where other books tell you the benefits of their juice recipes, this book is lacking that more in-depth knowledge. There aren’t all that many images; if you are juicing as a family or trying to get your children to eat healthier, having images would be helpful in getting them excited to try juicing.

Joe Cross, the author of this book, starred in the fitness documentary “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.” His latest book contains delicious juice recipes continuing on his plan to get people to optimize their health.
Organized by color
One of the things we really love about this book is that all the recipes are organized by color. Fancy something green with lots of veggies? Then just flick through to the green section and you will see a load of recipes. This way of organizing the book allows you to enjoy a wide range of flavors and make sure you get lots of different nutrients. There is also a key; each recipe is marked showing you what its main health benefits are. This makes it easy to find recipes to help reduce cholesterol, fight diabetes etc.
If you’re looking to get your health on track or have a specific health problem, this book is an easy to follow and helpful recipe book that will show you the best way to use juicing to help your unique health problems.
Instructions for storing fruits and vegetables
When you start out juicing, one of the things you often don’t think about is the most effective way to store fruit and vegetables. Since you are juicing, you are likely to have a lot of them, but leaving them out can often decrease their health benefits as they lose nutrients. Another great thing about this book is that it gives you clear and easy-to-follow instruction on how to store all the ingredients for your juice. This will ensure you get the maximum benefit out of your juice.
I know we’ve all look at a recipe that looks great but have been a bit disappointed as it has a fruit or vegetable we either don’t like or is not grown locally, so it is hard to come by. This recipe book takes this into account and has guidelines for substituting ingredients for those that might be easier to find, or that you prefer, but will still provide a similar health benefit.
