What we like about the big book of juices
- Loads of innovative, delicious juice and smoothie recipes
- Choose the ideal drinks with a five-star system that rates the effectiveness of the juices in detoxifying the body, boosting energy, benefiting the immune system, improving digestion, and enhancing skin quality
- Ideal choice for health fanatics as it covers both types of food groups i.e. fruits and veggies
- Quickly find your favorite juices through the clever Index that sorts the juices by key ingredients, health benefits and even nutrients
What we didn’t like so much?
- No specific instructions about the ingredients; a ‘bunch’ of this and a ‘handful’ of that can be confusing if you don’t have some juicing experience already – but of course you learn
- Binding quality is not as good as you may like; so be gentle with the book or it might come apart
- If you want to keep a note of how many calories and nutrients you’re consuming, the book doesn’t focus on this
