The Juice Lady's Living Foods Revolution
This was an amazing book! The author, Cherie Calbom, is so personable and begins with her true life story of a traumatic event that happened to her, and the changes that the end result of this event caused her to she make in her lifestyle and diet. She speaks about God in a relevant and applicable way throughout the book, and gives great insight into food consumption, our bodies, and general food lifestyle habits. She has great information, facts, and statistics, including that only 26% of adults are getting over three servings of fruits or vegetables a day! The chapters are informative but not boring. She touches on why we should juice for our vegetable/fruit consumption, why it helps an individual lose weight and the effects it has on each body system, how to detox, and also includes a diet plan and full color recipes for juices, smoothies, and main dishes. After reading this book I was painfully aware of my shortcomings in consuming enough fruits and vegetables. The statistics were mind blowing and sobering. I honestly immediately went online to an auction site and purchased an industrial juicer. The book has triggered a positive change for myself and my family, and although hesitant at first, I am very glad I took the time to read this book, and I think you should read it too!I received this book from the publisher.
