Cookbook Giveaway: The Juice Generation

By: Kirsten Vala

If you’re trying to squeeze more fruits and veggies into your New Year’s diet, refreshing and healthful homemade juices and smoothies might be just the way to go. In The Juice Generation: 100 Recipes for Fresh Juices and Superfood Smoothies, Eric Helms shares juicing tips and expertise to get you started, along with recipes from his Manhattan juice shop, The Juice Generation.

From years of juice bar experience, Eric knows how to ease the uninitiated into a world where kale, spinach and beets get blended and squeezed into crave-able treats. He organizes this book along a 3-phase “Green Curve,” beginning with simple recipes with sweeter flavor profiles, moving onto more green-heavy advanced recipes and ending with super powerhouse drinks with robust (not sweet) flavors, for the juice pros. Along the way, simple combinations and guidelines let you customize your juices and smoothies to fit your personal taste. No matter where you fall on the “Green Curve” spectrum, you’ll be sure to have fun with your greens and feel good about your food with this book as your guide.
