For those who have or can procure a Vitamix, here are my thoughts on “Green for Life”: I like her guiding hypothesis that the healthiest lifestyle is the most natural. Read it in Swedish, but it wasn’t available here in the Swedish version Don’t be nervous about the taste – you mix greens with plenty of fruit.


Her writing style was engaging and it was hard not to like her by the end of the book.

I would have liked information on freezing green smoothies: On the flip side, this may be a way of encouraging readers to be more boutwnko with their green smoothies.

The book is light on science what little documentation there is is buried in the Notes at the end of the book and heavy on “cured my X” testimonials and the author’s own subjectivity. This book is filled with lots of great information about the value and benefits of eating a healthy raw foods based diet that includes green drinks.

She makes several technical errors in this book like saying that her Vita-Mix blender’s motor runs at speeds up to mph.

Dec 06, jack rated it it was amazing. Many people share more creative ideas than Boutenko. Still tastes great if you take it easy and it packs a whole lotta nutritional goodness. Geeen you’re just looking for recipes, skip to the recipe chapter.

She teaches classes on healthy living and raw food all over the world. I wanted to read The Green Smoothie Revolutionbecause that’s what I think it will be, but there were no copies available through my library. My children even gave it the thumbs up – amazing. Testimonials of the people who took part in the study, as well as others who had attended Boutenko’s workshops, and Boutenko herself, were overwhelmingly positive. Not especially well-written, but easy for anyone to understand.
