Book Review - The Weight Loss and Detox Secret - Green Smoothies - Jonathan Vine

Title:  Green Smoothies: The Weight Loss & Detox Secret: 50 Recipes for a Healthy Diet

Author:  Jonathan Vine

Review:  I received this book from the publisher for an honest review.  I tried several of the recipes and I love the spinach recipes, I think kale is too strong for me in a smoothie.  The 1st recipe is Apple and Spinach Smoothie and it is delicious – I am lactose intolerant so I substituted protein powder for the yogurt…yummy.  I stir the cup while I am drinking the smoothie so nothing settles to the bottom of the glass – I just swirl it before taking another drink. The Kale and Blueberry was OK I switched the butter milk with protein powder mixed with water – I have to admit that I am not a fan for Kale….(I did the blueberry kale smoothies with spinach instead and the protein powder and it was very good – I love blueberries.)

I have yet to try the sweet potato smoothie but plan on it when I get my hands of some sweet potatoes.    The spinach and citrus smoothie was good with the sweet/tangy citrus taste and I used protein powder again instead of the yogurt.    I have taken to freezing my spinach – fresh spinach but I freeze it before using- it lasts longer and I make fewer trips to the grocery store.  I also use frozen berries and this way the smoothie is colder and I can usually skip the ice- I do not have an automatic ice maker in my fridge.

I think making and drinking green smoothies is a great way to get your vegetables in for the day – I would much rather drink them then eat them most days.  I have to admit that celery is a bit strong for a drink and I am not big on vegetable only drinks – But for health this cookbook cannot be beat – give it a try and I think you will be glad you did – I eat my spinach this way almost every day now.  I have not tried every recipe in this book and I am not a vegetarian - I like adding banana also for a sweet punch to the smoothie.

 Jonathan Vine
Author Information:  My name is Jonathan Vine, and I was caught up in the vegetarian lifestyle a few years back. I have to say that giving up on meat did not struck me in a single moment, nor it was a swift decision, but an inner journey that evolved within a few months. Eventually I took a final decision that the suffering of animals is my grief and my motivation.
I was always enthusiastic about cooking. For me this is absolutely one of the greatest joys life can offer. With my vegetarian cooking style, I never feel deprived of what I eat, but rather satisfied and exhilarated with each bite.
My goal is to publish books that will empower readers to improve their health and well-being through simple everyday ingredients and low fat recipes that make eating affordable, realistic and delicious.
