Product Description

Green for Life
by Victoria Boutenko

$14.95 - Softcover - 186 pages

In search of the perfect human diet, Victoria Boutenko compares the standard American diet with the diet of wild chimpanzees. Chimpanzees share an estimated 99.4% of genes with humans, but their diet is dramatically different from ours. The most glaring difference is that chimpanzees consume significantly more green leaves than humans. Based on these observations, Victoria has developed a series of green smoothie recipes that enable anyone to consume the necessary amount of greens in a palatable way.

Victoria introduces the idea of blending, rather than juicing, as being the superior way to ingest greens, for the very necessary insoluble fiber, which is essential for healing and maintenance of our elimination systems. Also documented is a study in which a group of regular people drink a one quart green smoothie every day for a month, in addition to their regular diet.

One pound of certain greens can give you your RDA of all nine essential amino acids, not to mention an abundance of vitamins and minerals.

"Victoria Boutenko's clear, simple, masterful concept is so valuable, so powerful—we can expect to see and feel the world of health rocked to its foundations within the decade."
—Thomas Chavez, homeopath, author of Body Electronics

"In Green for Life Victoria gives us a unique, yet simple and delicious strategy for boosting our nutritional levels. Green smoothies are nothing short of revolutionary! I would recommend this book to just about anyone. It meets the needs of those who are seeking to move from a standard American diet into a healthier lifestyle, as well as those who have been 'raw' for years."
—Phyllis Linn, raw food enthusiast
