Banyen's Description: 

In Green for Life, raw foods pioneer Victoria Boutenko presents an overlooked powerhouse of nutrition: 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.

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. 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.

Chlorophyll is as important as sunlight! No life is possible without sunshine and no life is possible without chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is liquefied sun energy. Consuming as much chlorophyll as possible is exactly like bathing our inner organs in sunshine. The molecule of chlorophyll is remarkably similar to the molecule of heme, human blood. Chlorophyll takes care of our body like a most caring and loving mother. It heals and cleanses all our organs and even destroys many of our internal enemies, like pathogenic bacteria, fungus, cancer cells, and many others.

Other books by the Boutenkos are 12 Steps to Raw Foods and Fresh: the Ultimate Life Food Cookbook. For more info: www.rawfamily.com.
