"Choosing to eat healthier is a lifestyle choice. It involves a commitment to life better lived, beginning with the conscious decision to fuel the human body with foods that it was created to eat".
After reading the words above I was glued to this book because like most people as soon as you mention green smoothies they make a face or think yuck that bitter stuff but actually it's not all bitter. Most of you know I recently (like 3 months ago) got me a little blender so I can be making me some juices as I don't usually eat breakfast and as the author mentioned in this book "our excuses to ourselves for not choosing a healthier lifestyle is that we do not have the time, the money or the energy needed to eat healthier" so I wanted to make that I made the change and removed that excuse I harboured.
The book starts off with introducing what a green smoothie is, talks healthy benefits, healthier weight loss program plus gives the reader some tips. But it does not end there, there is a gazillion recipes which helps you on your journey as you transition to this healthier lifestyle. My favourite smoothie is "oatmeal kale smoothie", I know from the name doesn't really give you much hope but when you look at the ingredients you will smile: oats, almond milk, kale leaves, ice cubes, banana and cocoa powder. This smoothie is the bomb dot com. Not only does it taste good the author made it his business to list how much punch the smoothie carrys. For example the oatmeal kale smoothie contains: 336 calories, 29g fat, 5.1g protein and 16.5g carbohydrates.
My overall review of this book is very positive, I love that the book is easy to read and navigate and gives you just enough information to satisfy the curious. My only negative is that I didn't see any pictures which I was hoping to find looking at the cover.
