"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
""Green Smoothie Revolution: The Radical Leap Toward Natural Health" is one among many naturopathic books available that attempt to get people eating healthily again... Filled with easy, quick recipes that combine familiar and unusual fruits, vegetables and greens, Victoria Boutenko serves up an excellent book to readers who will all be hungry for more."
"This book is groundbreaking and needed by a population whose health is threatened by its own processed food supply. From a naturopathic perspective, the most important constituents of healing are here in these new recipes--enzymes, amino acids, fiber, minerals, antioxidants, and much more. Victoria Boutenko has an intense sense of curiosity combined with a brilliant mind... Join the Green Smoothie Revolution! You may not buy a more important book this year!"
--Ariel Policano, ND
"It is clear that Victoria Boutenko did her homework, because I found myself highlighting sentences on nearly every page. Though Victoria includes ample science in her book, the tone is very conversational and easy to read...This book has truly inspired me to get back on track with more green smoothies."
--"Basil & Spice"
"I rarely say this, but I am a big fan of this book. I would recommend reading "Green for Life" and then picking up a copy of "Green Smoothie Revolution" to launch your new understanding of health and nutrition to the next level."
"Boutenko's book is a simple guide for anyone who wants to find out what all the green smoot

Nonetheless it was Victoria who did the research, worked out the formula (fruit + greens) and sequestered the technology and put the word out! This book is an updated reworking of her classic, with plenty of recipes as well as the background and context to her work. Nicely presented including family photos.
If you are into GS for holistic lifestyle change and are interested in the broader health transformation or an interest in raw food culture beyond Insta-stories and Acai bowls - then this is for you!
Recommend this to those who are interested in smoothies for health.
In this book Victoria has managed the impossible - she's made green sexy and desirable.. There are loads of recipes here that are delicious and nutritious - two words that don't come together too often in the Standard Western Diet. Most people are happy to eat fruits, it's vegetables that cause the biggest problem - so Victoria squeezes the greens in through the backdoor by making her smoothies as fruity as possible and adding the green so you barely notice it's there.
The truth is, after a couple of weeks your body will choose these foods over all others and as an added incentive Victoria points out that her family noticed improvements in their health in hours and days, not weeks and months.
Do yourself a favour buy a copy for yourself, your parents, your kids, and your friends. If you're suffering from any form of ill health then make this your number one purchase for this week.
What I would like to do is share how I put the messages in the book into practice and trust that it will help potential buyers to purchase this book.
When I first came across this book I instinctively knew this was the path for me to follow to improve my general well being and restore my shaky health. I set out and bought a blender and then waited 2 weeks before using it. I was buying different fruits and greens - and they sat in my fridge.
Then one afternoon I decided to just make one; it was improvised but followed the idea of a chunky soup - salad greens, garlic, fresh ginger, 2 red chillies, 2 sticks of celery, roasted red peppers from a jar, a bunch of parsley, 2 large tomatoes and blitzed. At first it did not seem to blend then I added a cup of filtered tap water and then a second - that did the trick.
I have to say the results were amazing - a gorgeous melange of flavours. Satisfying and totally moreish.
I have not looked back since - neither will you once you take the plunge. I now plan what I am going to make each morning and then collect what I require from my local asian store. The recepies in the book are great and quite detailed - I have used them as a launching pad to develop my own concoctions. Not one has ever been a disappointment.
I have bought the book as presents for my family. Buy, Buy, Buy!
I also think the arguments Victoria makes in this book have been developed a bit better. For example, she gives a couple of reasons as to why we might want to eat like chimpanzees instead of just raving on about them as she did in Green for Life. Much more inspiring is the story in the Appendix of Clent Manich's amazing journey from obesity to health. Again, it's a one-off example rather than a scientific study, but I can't see the harm in drinking a couple of green smoothies a day and it seems to be having a positive effect on my health too. In general I prefer books that advise you to add nutrients to your diet rather than to give things up, and this book makes some wonderfully creative suggestions on how to do this. I also love some of the names of the recipes, like Dancing Dandelion, Party in your Mouth, Heavy Metals Be Gone, Oh Bay-Beh Bay-Beh, and my favourite, "Bleh! So Bland, Why Did I Try This, But It's Growing On Me". If I can find out where to get buckwheat sprouts and avocado seed I might try it too.
