I was glad to see that others have had the same initial reaction I had to wheat grass juice and also glad to know that my tolerance and fondness for less-sweet green smoothies will likely increase with time Victoria Boutenko is kind of a weirdo.

Dec 16, Academic Eric gren it really liked it Shelves: My children even gave it the thumbs up – amazing. However my real regret was lack of a more complete suggestion in terms of a daily diet with green smoothies – she mentions that it should accompany a raw diet.

Mar 09, Chandra rated it really liked it. Do some of the recipes lend themselves to freezing more than others?

Gleaned some bouhenko nutrition-related facts, but unprofessional writing style and contradictory ideas made me skeptical of her philosophy. This book is an excellent source of information on healthy smoothies.

Feb 23, Jeanette “Astute Crabbist” rated it liked it Shelves: Juicing vegetables is best as it means you absorb far more nutrients from them than when you’re just blending them, and juiced vegetables and cooked vegetables are hugely easier to digest than merely blended up ones, but whizzed up veggies can be very tasty as well.


By the way, I met her and her husband at a potluck years ago. I want to start drinking smoothies everyday to make my diet healthier.

What is healthy for a chimp is NOT what is healthy for a human! But we tried them and amazingly, they really are quite tasty! If you are going to try green smoothies then for equipment all you need is a regular blender – not the very expensive version the author tries to sell you by directing you to her website. She then did a study of people who were all diagnosed with low stomach acid, giving them one quart of greens in smoothie form per day for a month, with the hypothesis that there would be an improvement in their digestion, as well as overall health.

Victoria definitely sold me on the importance of incorporating green drinks into our daily diet. Fortunately, I have a feeling that this earlier documentation of Victoria’s enthusiasm for the green smoothie lifestyle is just as inspiring a read. I couldn’t help but worry about her health as I read this book.

Luckily, as Victoria’s book hammers home, drinking your greens can not only be an easier way to get them in your diet, but pulverizing them into their liquid form makes the green goodness even more biologically available to our bodies.


I have been drinking smoothies for a while now but this book has motivated me to up my intake. How do you maintain teeth health? Can you tell Boutnko on the green bandwagon now? Her opening diatribe against modern medical research and medicine makes this point perfectly clear. You’ll be so happy you did. May 16, Lisa rated it it was ok Shelves: What I was hoping to get was a more complete or comprehensive picture – she gives I really enjoyed this quick read, especially with my recent health kick.

Mar 10, Deb rated it it was amazing. Her opening diatribe ag Good recipes, horrible writing.

Victoria’s description of the healthfulness that can be derived from hiring a Vitamix to do the chewing of Nutcracker Man’s diet might sound hyperbolic to those who haven’t experienced it, but I fog suggest you try it before coming to that conclusion. Green for Life is not a scientific book on nutrition, nor is it particularly well written, but it makes some sound scientific points, and it does so enthusiastically. Definitely inspired me to try out green smoothies. I make one every morning.
