Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“In Green for Life, Victoria Boutenko focuses on the benefits of greens and offers 45 of her favorite green smoothie recipes.”
Publishers Weekly

Green for Life is a revolutionary but simple idea whose time has come. It is a clear inspiration and great resource to readers who desire to lead healthier lives.”
Midwest Book Review

“In more than thirty-five years of practice as a psychiatrist affiliated with the Harvard Medical School, I have learned one thing very well: Human behavior is very hard to change. Now Victoria Boutenko is persuading me otherwise. … Thirty days of green smoothies will change how you feel, and how you feel about yourself. That’s no small achievement for one small book.”
—A. William Menzin, MD, Harvard Medical School, from the foreword

“Victoria Boutenko’s clear, simple, masterful concept is so valuable, so powerful—we can expect to see and feel the world of health rocked to its foundations within the decade.”
—Thomas C. Chavez, homeopath and author of Body Electronics

“Victoria, you did it again! I love your new book. It will bring health to millions, reduce future risks of degenerative diseases for new generations, and make life easier for all of us now. A must read!”
—Dr. Ruza Bodganovich, internationally renowned lecturer and author of The Cure is in the Cause

“Raw food expert Victoria Boutenko wants you to eat more leafy greens, but she knows chomping on big bunches of them can be difficult. So, in the second edition of her book Green for Life, originally published in 2005, she instead recommends blending kale, spinach, chard, and the like with different fruits and vegetables and drinking a quart of the resulting green smoothie every day... Already own the book? The new version includes nutritional information on Boutenko's favorite edible weeds (stinging nettles, dandelions, lambsquarters); testimonials from smoothie converts, who marvel at how their various ailments disappear after going green; and some 20 additional recipes for smoothies and puddings, which Boutenko perfected over six years of experimentation.”
Vegetarian Times

Green for Life is the book that makes the case, the proof, if you will, that green smoothies are the missing link in human nutrition… After you read the science and the amazing testimonials, you'll be itching to make your first smoothie… Few books are as ‘must-have’ as this one… 10+ out of 10.”
The Raw Mocha Angel
 
Green for Life is a book of hope and encouragement, as it shares a simple and viable way to revitalize your life.”
Lily of the Valley

“Amazing and inspiring... Green for Life is impossible to read without craving a fresh, green smoothie. Why? The information and stories in the book (including dozens of first person experiences from those who changed their diets after reading the first edition of Green for Life) are compelling, even shocking, and offer the promise of healing for any of us with health and skin issues... pick up this influential book and start getting greens into your daily routine!”
Beauty is Wellness

“[Green for Life] is extremely motivating. It’s short, it’s interesting, and it makes you want to run to your nearest green grocer for an armload of greens to shove into your blender.”
All Things Nourishing

“Green for Life is a very informative book if you are just getting into the green smoothie revolution. Lots of information and case studies on why green smoothies are beneficial, along with a recipe section. Chlorophyll is liquid sunshine!”
In My Mind’s Zen Garden

As a nutrition professional I frequently discover new diets and eating habits.  Many claim to offer optimal health or weight loss, disease control or the next thing. I find myself reading diet books with a certain skepticism… [Victoria Boutenko’s] research finds many benefits to adding green smoothies to the daily diet... I highly recommend reading [Green for Life], and trying the smoothies, to anyone.  If your health is declining, your weight is increasing or decreasing unexpectedly, or if you would like overall health benefits of amazing greens…read this book!”
—Rachel Fox, RD, Eat Drink Better

“[Green for Life offers] background, logistics, health information, facts, and even a short study with people trying out the smoothie lifestyle. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! ... I noticed a difference in myself after only one day drinking the smoothies. That shocked me. I felt so betrayed by my own desires of wanting 'regular' food. I felt more energized, didn't need as much sleep the night afterward, and could tell my digestion was better… I'm glad to know there's an easy way to add greens and fruits to my diet… helpful and informative.”
Kari, Reading For Sanity

“[Boutenko] makes it clear throughout [Green for Life] that consuming vitamin-packed smoothies is not only the most effective way for our bodies to absorb essential nutrients, adding just one quart of green smoothie a day to one's diet can help with everything from weight loss and cravings, to healing skin conditions and reversing diabetes. She literally has pages and pages of inspiring testimonials, which is helpful for us as readers since we can pinpoint our trouble spot and then look through the book for a way to tackle it with the help of greens.”
Beauty Snob

“Go green with in-season fruits and veggies via one of Victoria Boutenko’s Green for Life smoothie recipes. Our fave, the Aloe-Ha.”
The Posh Mom Life

“A good beginner's guide that is ripe for discussion.”
Elevate Difference

Green for Life is a classic tome on green smoothies, with lots of information on the health benefits and easy recipes to get started.”
Chatelaine

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 INDISPENSABLE ! 17 mai 2008
Format:Broché
En espérant qu'il ne tardera pas à être traduit en français.
Informations de première importance, que tous devraient connaître... Victoria a fait un travail remarquable de recherche. Les tableaux des nutriments selon les produits seront stupéfiants pour certains. Tout est à lire avec la plus grande attention pour améliorer sa vie, sa santé, son bien-être. Elle argumente et documente avec les références de toutes ses sources. Les préceptes nutritionnels devraient être totalement revus, complétés et rectifiés dans les formations professionnelles médicales et para-médicales.
Parce que l'esprit, le mental, l'émotionnel ne peuvent pas fonctionner correctement lorsque le physique est déséquilibré, à chacun de revoir le contenu de son assiette.
Ce livre devrait être diffusé dans tous les établissements de santé, maisons de retraite, écoles... et dans les mains de tous nos responsables, fonctionnaires ou non, d'établissements de restauration collective (autant dire un doux rêve !).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 À lire absolument 13 novembre 2013
Par Halvdanoe
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Un livre très intéressant qui bouleversera votre savoir en matière d'alimentation. Comme quoi, ce qu'on nous inculque dès notre plus jeune âge est vraiment à revoir. Beaucoup de points à mettre en pratique dans sa vie de tous les jours, comme évidemment la préparation de "green smoothies". Petit point qui, tout de même m'a déçue : les smoothies verts sont décrits comme un remède à tout point de vue. Je ne doute pas de leurs vertus, mais je trouve que l'auteure en fait un peu des tonnes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Green Smoothies get rid of junk food cravings!!! 7 mars 2006
Par Rick Josey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
What a wonderful book! For the past 20 years I've been on a quest to eat more natural foods,and my health improved drastically. But I still suffered from junk food cravings...until I discovered Green for Life!

Following Victoria's advice, I added lots of GREENS to my fruit smoothies, and the first day I did so MY FOOD CRAVINGS STOPPED. Bang. Just vanished. Just like my brain's "cravings switch" was flipped to the OFF position. Apparently my body had been craving minerals all those years, and once I started eating GREENS the cravings stopped. And I'm finally trimming down!

Victoria's research in this area is much needed, and much appreciated. I especially love the chapter on the chimpanzees and their daily eating habits.

My wife and I participated in one of Victoria's Green for Life teleconferences, and we loved it. She speaks from her heart, is really a nice lady, and this was one of the best conferences ever. We love Victoria! And we sure love the changes that are happening in our bodies!

Get this Green for Life book, make yourself some green smoothies, and watch your food cravings vanish. This is the secret to losing weight! :)

Thanks, Victoria, for Green for Life!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The way to healthy living 29 octobre 2007
Par M. Caruso - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I used to do a lot of juicing in the past but it is very time consuming and really messy. My problem is over since I got Green for Life. Making smoothies is a great alternative to juicing. It is much faster, less messy, and you also get some fiber in addition to juice. In addition to great recipes for making smoothies the book is also a good source of information about proper nutrition, the importance of hydrochloric acid in the stomach and much more. Get this book!! Another great volume that you may not miss is Can We Live 150. These two books together make a perfect gift of showing the way to healthy living just for anyone.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Attention all IBS sufferers 30 juin 2006
Par S. Elaine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I was diagnosed with IBS almost a year ago, and tried my best to control it through diet (check out Heather VonVorous' Eating for IBS), but I would still have flare-ups, especially during stressful times.

The green smooties are not only easy to digest (b/c its all blended for you) but they do wonders to regulate your GI tract. I have not had a flare- up since I started drinking my smoothies. If you have IBS, acid reflux, heartburn, or any other digestive issues you owe it to yourself to read this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great introduction to blending, but should be taken with a grain of salt 4 novembre 2009
Par buru buru piggu - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I bought this book based on the large number of positive reviews and read it with an open mind, but also some skepticism. I wanted to boost my energy level as well as cut down on meat consumption, but was wary of fad diets and radical lifestyle changes. I was already exercising regularly (3-4x a week), so weight loss wasn't a concern. I was just tired of feeling lethargic all the time and wanted to try a new way to stop being so lifeless.

Thankfully, Boutenko promotes healthy living, not gimmicky diets or fad lifestyles. I gave the book an earnest effort, and within 2 weeks of regular and frequent blending (4 or more smoothies a day), I began to notice a big change in the way my body reacted. I was surprised to see myself growing very sleepy around 11pm and was wide awake by 7, all without a need for an alarm clock. My body became more in tune with the circadian rhythm and day/night cycles whereas previously, I stayed up half the night and didn't wake until past noon. As many others have reported, my craving for meat and junk food sharply declined. After drinking 2 or 3 glasses of smoothies/veggie juice blends in the evening, I didn't have much interest (or room) for much else.

My initial 5 or 6 pitchers were sometimes downright disgusting, but after I got used to the juice blends and varying the ingredients (adding some fruits or store-bought orange juice), I came to like them a lot and looked forward to a tall cold glass of green goo whenever I felt hungry. Particularly effective energy-boosters are dark leafy greens like kale and Chinese mustard greens (Brassica rapa).

Prior to reading "Green for Life", I was juicing. I always felt guilty throwing away all that vegetable and fruit pulp and just drinking the juice, and Boutenko made me realize why. I was discarding all the good stuff, like valuable nutrients, enzymes, and fiber. I had tried to use the pulp in soup, but it didn't taste very good. Juicing also left a big mess to clean up (mesh screen, pulp bucket, juicer walls), and I hadn't even thought to blend. So, now I blend, and keep 100% of the benefits and all the cleaning that's required is rinsing out the pitcher of my blender. Another bonus is that vegetables and fruit are a lot cheaper than meat, so the savings add up. $5 can buy a week's worth of juicing ingredients. In the supermarket, I began to walk right by the meat section without second thoughts, even when there were some great sales. Lower meat consumption is also better for the planet because of how wasteful meat production is.

"Green for Life" is a good starting point to a greener, healthier lifestyle, and I highly recommend it. I do have to take some of what Boutenko says with a grain of salt though. She seems to claim blending as a panacea which solves almost any ailment or condition. Otherwise, I have no doubts as to the health benefits of regular blending. I fell off the wagon for the last 3 months because of work and definitely feel the difference. I'm very tired again during the day, so I've restarted my blending routine. Getting more vegetables into your diet and eating less meat is never a bad thing.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointed 14 juillet 2007
Par gkk2001 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I don't write many reviews but had to in this case.
I would not call this a book, but more like a large phamplet. It contains 166 pgs of which only 7 are the green smoothie recipes. Testimonials consist of 45 pgs., thats right 45, way overdone to provide verbage where the rest of the book is lacking.

There is very little substance to this 'book'. The obvious message is to consume more greens through the use of smoothie drinks and the author gives very few facts to back up the claims. Though I have never doubted the need to consume far more greens, I wanted to learn of more factual information.
I also wanted to see lots of recipes with variety. I was left disappointed there.

I never did find any credentials for the author, Victoria Boutenko. I only assume they are good and she is a knowledgeable nutritionist of some sort. But the facts are lacking in this book, would like to see more detail.
I cannot recommend the book.

Flaxseed is a perfect addition to the human diet. It is very high in both soluble and insoluble fiber. It contains 26 percent fiber (14 percent soluble, 12 percent insoluble). Just one-eighth of a cup, or two tablespoons, of flaxseed contains six grams of fiber. &quote;
