Thanks to the advent of processed food, people who live in industrial countries, especially those whose families have done so for several generations, often have symptoms of multiple nutrient deficiencies on a very high level. Green smoothies provide a way for us to correct these persistent imbalances and begin to discover what health actually feels like. "Green Smoothie Revolution" offers a wide variety of smoothie recipes as well as the nutrition and know-how behind the drinks. A molecule of chlorophyll closely resembles a molecule of human blood. According to teachings of Dr. Ann Wigmore, consuming chlorophyll is like receiving a healthy blood transfusion. Many people do not consume enough greens, even those who stay on a raw food diet. By drinking two or three cups of green smoothies daily you will consume enough greens for the day to nourish your body, and all of the beneficial nutrients will be well assimilated. When consuming your greens in the form of green smoothies, you are greatly reducing the consumption of oils and salt in your diet. While fresh is always best, green smoothies will keep in cool temperatures for up to three days, which can be handy at work and while travelling. With 150 easy-to-make recipes offering an abundance of fruits, vegetables, and greens to choose from, "Green Smoothie Revolution" provides an important diversity of nutritional sources as well as enough variety to keep taste buds happy.
