10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse by JJ Smith
Have you ever wanted to try a juice or smoothie cleanse? I know I have, but I wasn’t sure where to start. There is so much information available in print and on the web that it can be a little overwhelming. The 10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse book by JJ Smith is a great guide and resource to help you from start to finish.
The author, JJ Smith, is a nutritionist and certified weight loss trainer. She shares sound information and advice on what a cleanse means, how it will benefit you, how to get started. Unlike other books and resources, she also offers tips and information on what you can do after the cleanse to achieve and maintain optimal health. I like that she includes detailed instructions on preparing for and conducting a full 10 day cleanse. This includes a shopping list, over 100 recipes, and tips to help you succeed. This book covers the why, what, and how to help you improve your health.
I typically don’t review diet books. Diets, in the traditional sense, don’t work! The author mentions this in her first chapter and stresses this book isn’t about counting calories or strict serving sizes (the key factors in many traditional diets). Her approach is about giving your body the nutrients it needs, detoxifying your body, and retraining your taste buds to desire healthier foods. This approach is about eating real food, eliminating processed foods, and as a result you will be healthier and leaner.
The recipes included with the book are really good terrific. I juice and make smoothies regularly. You can never have too many recipes. One of my favorite recipes was the Chocolate Cherry Smoothie with greens, almond milk, cherries, bananas, cinnamon, and cacao powder. The “kid-friendly” recipes were a hit with my children. One of them was the Blackberry Almond with greens, almond milk, banana, blueberries, blackberries, and dates.
Overall, this is a book that I would recommend to anyone thinking about starting a smoothie cleanse or wants more information about it. The recipes are simple and delicious. The detailed instructions are invaluable to those new to a body detox or cleanse. So if you are considering a cleanse, be sure to check out this book.
