With 101 Juice recipes and ideas, Danielle Omar’s ‘Skinny Juices’ is a must for anyone concerned for their health.
Danielle Omar knows Juicing. She’s written a reference guide for those who’ve never juiced, want to juice more or even those who’ve juiced for years and want to perk up their regular recipes for juicing. She know’s her fruits and veggies.
Danielle’s writing style isn’t flamboyant. She writes for the health concerns of others and includes all the science and techniques to back up her instructions and concerns. She has a clear and uncluttered way of getting her information to us without being boring or repetative as well. Her recipes are simple, easy to make and fun to drink most of all. She explains the how’s and why’s of juicing, the differences between juicing and just blending, and how each combination will help and effect your body.
‘Skinny Juices’ is a fabulous reference to start any Detoxification program as well. Danielle goes through step-by-step instructions for detox. She explains benefits, concerns and methods for your plan. And she does it all with simplicity and common sense instructions to get you started. I made several of her drink combinations on the first day that I had her book. They all have just enough sweet to keep your taste buds happy and just enough ease to keep you going for the second and third day’s drinks.

What I really enjoyed about Danielle’s book is how she highlights the differences between juicing and just blending, how to design your own, economical detox plan to suit your own needs, choosing a juicer, and even tips for incorporating juicing into your permanent lifestyle. She includes juicing recipes for so many different health concerns; There are Detox, Weight Loss, Immunity, Anti-Aging, Digestion Health and Cancer Fighting juices. Not too many pictures, but then how many juice glasses do your really need to see?
This book would be fantastic to have with you all the time for a recipe library and reference for all who want a healthier way to live. I really did enjoy reading all the details of all the different vegetables and fruits for the drinks. Danielle lists all the whys and hows certain things should be included in your drinks. A really great guide for beginners and experts alike.
Danielle is sharing one of the drink recipes from the book, ‘Cucumber Cooler’ – a wonderfully fresh blend of Watermelon, Cucumber, Lime and Mint. I really loved how the lime brought out the flavors in the watermelon while masking the cucumber. It’s just great served really cold or blend it together with ice for a slushie.
The popular duo of watermelon and cucumber is perfect for rehydrating on a hot summer day. High in water and electrolytes, this juice balances the fluid levels in your body and keeps you cool…as a cucumber.
