Book Review: Supercharged Green Juice and Smoothie Diet By Christine Bailey

This is a book review of Supercharged Green Juice and Smoothie Diet by Christine Bailey that was published by Nourish Books in December 2015.

Christine Bailey is based in London, England and is a nutritionist, speaker, chef, food and health consultant and author with over 18 years experience. Christine is the author of numerous health and recipe books and this is her latest publication.

I have recently purchased a new blender to make breakfast juice and smoothies in a bid to get healthy and was on the lookout for a recipe book when I came across this new release from renowned author Christine Bailey.

What I really like about this book and what sets it apart from others is it includes in every recipe a superfood to add to your drink to make it even better for you - from acai berry powder to seeds and herbs, there is a superfood for everyone and everything!

There is an index at the front with all the superfoods so you can go through and see what you might like to stock up on at the supermarket or health food stores. I found this especially useful to get my head around what type of superfood would work for me and my health needs.

At the back of the book the recipes are listed by the health benefits you want - from losing weight to boosting the immune system. Again, this is a really handy index I referred to when I was feeling especially flat on a Monday morning and needed an energy boost and pick me up or for a detox juice before a big night out!

I have been very hands on with this book and made a few recipes from it with plenty more that are flagged that I want to try. The recipes are mostly for green drinks made with green fruits or vegetables but there are a few non-green drinks made with beetroot, carrot, etc.

I love the images of each recipe they are vibrant and look so refreshing that no matter how tired I am it encourages me to chop, blend and whip up a drink concoction!

I recommend this book to any green drink fans, or first time juicer and smoothie makers, the easy to follow recipes and superfood information will have you feeling healthy in no time.

I give this book 5 stars out of  5

Jarrah Jungle's Star Rating:
1 Bad - I'd rather eat brussel sprouts topped with anchovies than read this again
2 Not Good - I'd rather watch paint dry than read this again
3 Ok - I'm sitting on the fence - its not great but not terrible either
4 Good - I'd give up a bottle of the worlds best champagne for this read
5 Great - I'd pass up a date with Johnny Depp for this read
