For the legions of health-conscious readers and those trying to lose or maintain weight, this comprehensive book presents a near-painless, appetizing program to getting on track using the nutrient-dense approach to eating. Superjuicing will appeal to parents of young children who have the challenge of encouraging adequate vegetable intake.
The link between chronic disease and diet is well known, yet only recently have many people decided to focus on nutrient-dense foods or superfoods. The challenge is how to use these foods regularly at home, and Superjuicing reveals the easy way to do just that. It also provides detailed information on the health benefits of juicing, the basics on how to juice foods and how to whip up delicious recipes -- drinks, desserts, entrees and even meal replacements -- using a specialized juicer or simple blender.
Readers can plan meals around healthy juice entries starting with simple beverages and expanding the juice concept for creating healthy entrees and desserts. The book incorporates using these nutrient-rich foods in combinations that maximize the nutritional benefits of each food. This nutrient-rich program translates into obtaining the highest level of nutrients and phytochemicals in the least amount of calories, which helps to reduce risk of chronic disease and obesity.
In addition to the over 100 recipes, Superjuicing includes:
- How the foods used in juicing can help to prevent diseases and cancers

- How to use high-impact additives and super enhancers

- Recommended thinning agents (e.g. coconut water) and their advantages

Superjuicing is written by a professional nutritionist who provides a complete and comprehensive nutritional analysis for each recipe in the book.
