Full of pseudo-science nonsense.

Look on the internet for green smoothie recipes. Victoria developed a series of greens In search of the perfect human diet, Victoria Ljfe compares the standard American diet with the diet of wild chimpanzees.

Good material Much needed information on nutrition! It gresn a very good story about Victoria and her family, and the journey to health which arrives her at Green Smoothies, and I am most definitely going to try the Green Smoothies.

I’m turning into such a weirdo raw food geek. Dec 16, Academic Eric rated it really liked it Shelves: She ten I like green smoothies. What is healthy for a chimp is NOT what is healthy for a human! Aug 28, allison rated it liked it Shelves: I hope the very extreme vegan diet the author follows doesn’t catch on in the same way.

Finding out how much protein is in various greens was an exciting discovery for me–a gardener who planted way too many greens this summer and wound up letting most of them ruin.

She talks about stomach acid and speaks in terms of high pH acids.

Take some of her claims with a grain of salt. Refresh and try again.

I’m sold on the idea of green smoothies but unfortunately Mrs. I like her guiding hypothesis that the healthiest lifestyle is the most natural. What she has done here in terms of her Rosebug study is commendable, and the information about why you should incorporate green smoothies in your diet is tremendous. She is a raw foodist and a bit eccentric ie. If people come away from this book determined to add more greens to their diet then that is wonderful.
