The Juicing Book – 3.5 out of 5
by Stephen Blauer The Juicing Book is a classic that has been around for almost 20 years and is one of the best selling juicing books.
Pros: This book is a great introduction to juicing if you are new to the subject. It provides basic information for which fruits and vegetables to use for specific nutritional needs and also which ones to use for various health conditions. It provides advice about what combinations to make for helping the body to make the most efficient use out of them. There is also good information about creating a juice program, juice fasting and buying a juice extractor.
Cons: This book is not the best option for those who have some or a lot of understanding about juicing. The nutritional information provided, while helpful is limited. Due to the age of this book, there is a lot of new information about nutrition, juicing and natural health that is missing, but the information it does contain is still relevant. Features a limited amount of juice recipes.
Conclusion: A great book if you are getting your feet wet with juicing and are looking for a complete and basic guide, but does not contain enough information (new or otherwise) to keep intermediate or seasoned juice drinkers happy. If you are looking for book on juicing loaded with recipes, this isn’t it.
The Juicing Bible 4.5 out of 5
by Pat Crocker This is a superb book. It’s a lot more in-depth compared with a typical juicing book. It is divided into a number of very useful sections that range from basic juices to recipes that make use of the leftover pulp.
Pros: This book is very comprehensive and is essentially a mini-encyclopedia split into 8 sections – Healthy Body Systems, Health Conditions, Healthy Foods, Fruits and Vegetable Juices, Juices for Healthy Bodies, Roughies and Smoothies, Specialty Drinks and Frozen Treats. You can find a juice for any health issue with this book and get just about any juicing for health question answered. Features an in-depth section on herbs.
Cons: Not an in depth book as far as juice recipes go, and a fair portion of the ingredients are not the easiest to come across.
Conclusion: Excellent book if you are looking for a juicing encyclopedia, a bit short on actual recipes.
The Everything Juicing Book – 4 out of 5
by Henry Lunt A great book for getting started with lots of recipes and information
Pros: This book is great for getting started and features information about juicing for health conditions and the benefits of individual nutrients. Includes lots of recipes, may of which are not too complicated to make.
Cons: The recipes are categorized according to health conditions and not by food, so you can’t just pick out a recipe using apple or pears etc. Not comprehensive enough.
Conclusion: A great book if you are a new juicer, it is reviewed very well by those new to the subject – often 5 out of 5. It does fundamentally live up to its mantra “All you need to create delicious juices for your optimum health“. However, it is probably not comprehensive enough for seasoned juice enthusiasts or natural health buffs.
The Juice Lady’s Guide to Juicing for Health
- 4.5 out of 5
by Cherie Calbom This book is a classic juicing book written by the the most famous woman in juicing Cherie Calbom ‘The Juice Lady’.
Pros: A thorough book that explains in detail about the healing quality of fresh juice and the nutrients it contains such as living enzymes. The book features sections on most of the key health disorders today, going into great detail backed with scientific references and tailor-designed juices for each condition. Cherie paints a wholistic picture for addressing each condition.
Cons: Even though the details of combating health disease are extensive and awesome, the same recipes are repeated throughout.
Conclusions: Excellent knowledgeable about the health benefits of juicing and juicing for health conditions. Not a great book if your looking for lots of recipes.
Power of Juicing – 4 out of 5
by Jay Kordich The ‘Power of Juicing’ is another classic juicing book written by Jay Kordich ‘The Juice Man’
Pros: This is a nice and straight forward book that provides some “extras.” It is simple, but it does feature an extensive selection of recipes. There is a section about produce that informs you what each fruit and vegetable is good for (what minerals and vitamins they contain) and how to store and buy them. The “Juiceman” additionally includes a crash course of all the nutrients that we need to be healthy, what it is we need them for, and the juices we find them in.
Cons: There is some repetition in the recipes and the recipes are pretty basic.
Conclusion: A great book as an all around juicing guide with a 50 pages of recipes, that is a lot more recipes than most of the ‘juicing guide’ style books. If you want a great guide and a bunch of recipes to get you going – this is the book.
