I so appreciated the author's approach. She isn't a fanatic who insists that you must follow an instant 12 step program. Miss one and you are toast. Her approach promotes a simple first step, which is so easy, anyone can do it. Most people don't stick to any health regime for long, because the plan is too spartan, or too difficult and time consuming to manage. The simple and easy Green Smoothie habit is not only extremely healthful, but so easy and time efficient. And doing that one good thing for your body opens the door to wanting to do other good things. That is the real beauty of this book for me. I find the book to be full of useful information which she has shared with easy links to other internet sites for more detailed information. ( I did watch the video on colon health!) And for those wanting more.... her website is full of specific topics which are thoroughly researched and easy to understand. As to the complaint in one review about the book seeming like a blender advertisement...... I don't have the top brand blender, but I know exactly what Robyn is talking about. I suffered and finally gave up on Smoothies before I had a good blender. She is only being honest about the quality of most blenders out there and realistic about Smoothie success. If Robyn didn't make the blender issue so prominent, most people would be totally frustrated at home, trying to use the wrong tool for the job and finally giving up. I just hope that all will try it, regardless of the type of blender they have, and realize the benefits first. The blender recommendations will then be much appreciated. The only part of the book I haven't delved into is the recipes section. I like the simple, and have my own Smoothie recipe that works for me. I wouldn't want anyone to thumb through the recipe section and get scared away by the vast array of possible ingredients. That is a plus, but could be overwhelming to a new-comer. Bottom line, Robyn doesn't make you feel like a loser, with all your bad habits. She encourages progress by this one amazing step, and knows that it will lead to good things.
