Book Description

Aug. 4 2009
Thanks to processed and fast foods, being overworked, and feeling stressed while eating on the fly, it is increasingly difficult for most of us to eat anywhere near a balanced diet. We may not be obviously sick, but may suffer from lack of focus, insomnia, sluggishness, or any host of symptoms caused by nutritional deficiency. Green Smoothie Revolution takes aim at this silent epidemic by restoring balance to our diets.
 
Combining nutrition and know-how with recipes that pack a powerhouse punch, Victoria Boutenko reintroduces long neglected fruits, vegetables, and greens in the most persuasive style for our busy lives: with fast prep and delicious results. Featuring 200 recipes, Green Smoothie Revolution offers both simplicity (4 ripe pears, 1 bunch parsley, 2 cups water; blend well) and enough variety to keep taste buds happy and nutrients coming from a wealth of options.

Product Description

Review

"In more than thirty-five years of practice as a psychiatrist affiliated with the Harvard Medical School, I have learned one thing very well: Human behavior is very hard to change. Now Victoria Boutenko is persuading me otherwise.… Thirty days of green smoothies will change how you feel, and how you feel about yourself. That’s no small achievement for one small book."
—A. William Menzin, MD, Harvard Medical School

Green Smoothie Revolution: The Radical Leap Toward Natural Health is one among many naturopathic books available that attempt to get people eating healthily again… Filled with easy, quick recipes that combine familiar and unusual fruits, vegetables and greens, Victoria Boutenko serves up an excellent book to readers who will all be hungry for more.”
—Examiner.com

"This book is groundbreaking and needed by a population whose health is threatened by its own processed food supply. From a naturopathic perspective, the most important constituents of healing are here in these new recipes—enzymes, amino acids, fiber, minerals, antioxidants, and much more. Victoria Boutenko has an intense sense of curiosity combined with a brilliant mind... Join the Green Smoothie Revolution! You may not buy a more important book this year!"
—Ariel Policano, ND

“It is clear that Victoria Boutenko did her homework, because I found myself highlighting sentences on nearly every page. Though Victoria includes ample science in her book, the tone is very conversational and easy to read...This book has truly inspired me to get back on track with more green smoothies.”

Lily of the Valley

“[Green Smoothie Revolution has] lots of great information and ideas for smoothies… I love the idea of getting my favorite dark, leafy green vegetables into such an easy snack or light breakfast…They keep me full longer than fruit alone and are perfect before an early morning workout.”

5.0 out of 5 stars My Green Smoothie Bible :) Nov. 30 2009
Format:Paperback
This book is extremely valuable to anyone transitioning to a living foods diet or anyone wanting to incorporate more raw whole foods on a daily basis. I am a brand new raw foodist, and this book has been my green smoothie bible! I have been referring to this book non-stop when I am trying to decide my next raw food meal. All I do is pick out a fruit/veggie I'm in the mood for, look it up in the index in the back of the book, and I have a list of green smoothie recipes I can choose from that have the food item I am craving for! I have mini post-it notes sticking out of the book for my favorite green smoothie concoctions, and the recipes that I have tried have very much please my palate :) I recommend this book to anyone who wants to make a smooth transition into eating more fruits and veggies or those interested in taking on the raw food lifestyle like myself. A fantastic reference book for green smoothie goodness!

5.0 out of 5 stars More than Expected Dec 31 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been saving up for a high speed blender forever (Blendtec), and when the time came to spend all my hard earned cash, I knew that I needed some motivation to actually use the the darn thing. Alas, Victoria's book. I've been wanting to go raw for a while but just couldn't do it, so my compromise was to drink green smoothies. The book was all that I expected and more. There are tonnes of delicious recipes to accommodate every palate including those of the 3 most finicky men in my life; my husband, my 6 and 4 year old sons. I also have a 10 month old daughter who gulps the green smoothies it out of a straw everday (I make on average 3 different smoothies a day). Three months and five hundred smoothies later, our family has benefited greatly from this book. We all feel healthier, and more energetic. Did I mention that I haven't caught a cold all winter?

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the answer to my big question March 17 2011
Format:Paperback
I loved Michael Pollan's book "In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto" in which he summed up his research into what we should really be eating by saying "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." I then thought, O-K, that's great advice but how do I do that? Salads?

Victoria Boutenko's book answers my question so completely that you would think that she was wondering the same thing. Many of the plants that are the healthiest for you (the dark green types) are difficult to eat raw in any meaningful quantity; kale, mustard greens, spinach, collard greens, etc. This is why so many people either cook them to death or smoother them with high calorie dressings. The Green Smoothie Revolution book showed me how I could add all of things that I believe are healthy for us (leaves, fruit, and berries) to my diet in an easy and fun way.

I was introduced to the Green Smoothie by a friend who had been eating this way for a while. I have to admit that when I made my first one I looked at it and said "Really?" It looked like something that Yoda, the swamp dwelling Jedi master from the Star Wars movies, would eat. Green, thick and kind of bubbling. I pride myself on my cooking abilities, especially in making a dish look appetizing by skillful plating. This did not look good; as a matter of fact my other friends used quite a few "colorful" expressions to describe my concoctions, none of which are appropriate here. The taste however is an entirely different matter. The simple blend of bananas, strawberries and kale was sweet, earthy and fresh. I was hooked!

This book inspired me. 130 days in, I am down 50+ pounds, feel great, and get more nutrition in a morning and lunch smoothie than I used to get in an entire month of indulgent eating.
