Wow!! The best smoothie book I've read, with so much more. 9 Aug 2000
By Megan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book on vacation, and it was one of the best choices I've made in a long time. I could barely walk back to the hotel before opening it! Inside I first found a section on ingredients and their healing powers. Next, there's a huge recipe selection of smoothies, juices, teas, soups, and nonalcoholic drinks, organized by what health benifits they have. Lastly, there is an appendage talking about blenders and juicers, health, and other topics. The photographs in the book are clear and beautiful. Although every drink is delicious, I highly reccommend the Jamaican Grapefruit Spritz for weight loss and the smooothie with banana, honey, and nutmeg.

Refreshing and Revitalizing 3 Nov 2000
By Blueivy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is carefully-crafted in many aspects to make you feel whole, refreshed, inspired, and revitalized. The illustrations, the invaluable knowledge, and the easy to follow directions make it a great addition to any healthy-kitchen. I have tried quite a few of the drinks and find them very tasty and also true-to-their word--coughs have stopped, eyes have brightened, skin has cleared, etc. It's very well-written, informative, and nice to look at. The only thing that is a little disconcerting is the amount of sugar required for some of the recipes--I'm sure Ms. McIntyre has a health related reason for doing this, but I prefer not to use that much sugar--I usually replace the sugar with a lower dose of much healthier organic honey. Great book though--I consume one of its drinks everyday.

Drink to Your Health 27 Jun 2002
By Cassandra Barnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anne McIntyre not only filled Drink to Your Health with dozens of easy recipes for juices, teas, soups, and smoothies, she also included vibrant photographs of the fresh ingredients used in the recipes. Her book is a visual, as well as culinary, pleasure.
McIntyre starts with an explanation of why water is so important-our bodies are seventy-five percent water. We lose 3 quarts of water every day through normal functions like breathing, perspiring, and urinating. All that liquid must be replaced, and she offers healthy and delicious alternatives to simply drinking lots of plain water.
The next section includes a discussion of the primary ingredients used in the recipes. She describes each one completely, including a brief history of its use, the nutrients it contains, and all the good things it can do for the body. Spices, grains, nuts, fruits, and vegetables all have a page in this section.
Recipes, classified by benefit offered, fill the rest of the book. McIntyre includes drinks for looking and feeling good, drinks for recovering from illness, and drinks for healing the soul and spirit.
Losing weight, clear eyes, great skin and hair, raising energy, stimulating the immune system, and boosting the brain are part of feeling good. Illnesses include clearing coughs and other cold symptoms, flu-busters, headaches, fevers, insomnia, arthritis, PMS, and many others. Drinks for relieving anxiety and stress, renewal, and helping depression round out the healing recipes.
I can personally vouch for the effectiveness of Nero's Nectar, a very simple recipe for relieving chest congestion due to a cold!
McIntyre ends with an appendix offering tips on things like selecting blenders and juicers, and choosing ingredients. (Yes, canned foods can be used if fresh isn't available.)
McIntyre says that "the recipes in [Drink to Your Health] are not just boring alternatives for teetotallers or health fanatics, but have been selected to stimulate the senses and scintillate the taste buds, at the same time improving health and vitality." Readers will find that her recipes provide an easy and delicious way to look and feel good.

Recipes really Work! 11 Jan 2011
By B. Zantello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have used this book only a couple of times but my mom has used it over and over. The recipes really work to help relieve whatever issue you are trying to help. Sometimes the ingredients are hard to find but we live in a rural area...it might not be so hard in a city.
My mom just made a cough syrup the other day and when no other med would work this stopped her from coughing all night.
There are recipes for headaches, clearing coughs, stimulating the immune system, great skin, healthy hair, blood pressure, colic, constipation, nausea, depression, relieving stress, and so much more!
It also has a section on different items (food products, herbs, etc.) and what their healing properties are. It has been a great book and it is definitely worth having around especially if you like to treat things more naturally.
Drink to Your Health 18 Dec 2007
By Lnanaa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has visually beautiful photos of the fruit, vegetables, and recipes. It explains all the health benefits of each fruit, vegetable, and nuts. I kept this book on my shelf and refer back to it whenever we have an illness in our family.

I have tried the Nero's Nectar to help clear phlegm congestion for a sinus infection and sore throat. It had helped tremendously for me and cleared up in 2 days.

This book is definitely worth it for me to keep on my bookshelf for great health.
