    Victoria Boutenko teaches classes on raw food and nutrition worldwide. The author of Green Smoothie Revolution, Raw Family Signature Dishes, 12 Steps to Raw Food, and Raw Family: A True Story of Awakening, her books have been translated into more than a dozen languages. Her self-published Green for Life was a finalist for the 2006 Independent Publisher’s Award (IPPY) in health and medicine. Victoria and the Boutenko family, also known as The Raw Family, live in Ashland, OR.
    Everyone knows they need to eat more fruits and vegetables, but consuming even the minimum FDA-recommended five servings a day can be challenging. In Green for Life, raw foods pioneer Victoria Boutenko presents an overlooked powerhouse of nutrition in this equation: greens. For their bounty of minerals and nutrients, greens exceed other vegetables in value. Green for Life details the immense health benefits of greens and suggests an easy way to consume them in sufficient quantities: the green smoothie. This quick, simple drink benefits everyone, regardless of lifestyle, diet, or environment. Green smoothies eliminate toxins, correct nutritional deficiencies, and are delicious as well.

    Green for Life includes the latest information on the abundance of protein in greens, the benefits of fiber, the role of greens in homeostasis, the significance of stomach acid, how greens make the body more alkaline, the healing power of chlorophyll, and more. Also included are the results of a pilot study demonstrating the effectiveness of adding just one quart of green smoothies a day to one’s diet, without changing anything else in dietary intake. Green smoothie testimonials and recipes give readers confidence and motivation in exploring green smoothies for themselves. This updated edition offers important new research on the role that omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids play in metabolic health and includes nutritional data on select green smoothies and updated findings on organic versus conventional produce. Offering more in-depth nutritional and experiential information than Boutenko’s recently released Green Smoothie Revolution, Green for Life makes an ideal companion piece to its recipe-rich successor.

      This book is a must read for anyone looking to make a positive and EFFECTIVE change in their diet and to their health. The recipes for green smoothies are awesome! I consider myself a healthy eater, but was surprised that I was missing out on some vital nutrients. This book gives a straightforward, commonsense approach to why GREEN Vegetables are so very, very important to our diet, and what most people are missing by not including more of them in their daily meals. I highly recommend this book...it is an eye-opener and will have you re-evaluating what you eat.
