Synopsis: This classic guide to green nutrition will appeal to anyone who wishes to develop a healthy diet without making sacrifices to taste or lifestyle
 
Everyone knows they need to eat more fruits and vegetables, but consuming the minimum FDA-recommended five servings a day can be challenging. In Green For Life, raw foods pioneer Victoria Boutenko reveals an easy way to get the nutrients and minerals you need, in the amount you need: greens and green smoothies. This quick, simple drink eliminates toxins and corrects nutritional deficiencies—benefiting everyone, regardless of lifestyle, diet, or environment. And they’re 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, and more. Also included are easy-to-follow recipes with nutritional data, inspiring testimonials, and research on how adding just one quart of green smoothies to your daily intake can make a world of difference.
 
This updated edition also provides important new research on the role that omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids play in metabolic health. Offering more in-depth nutritional and experiential information than Boutenko’s Green Smoothie Revolution, Green for Life makes an ideal companion piece to its recipe-rich successor.
