I was shocked when I read the first recipie stating to add sugar, then the next and the the next. I have been doing a juice fast for the past week and I had been recording my sugar intake of the juices and I really have to watch as fruit is already high in sugars! I don't use refined White sugar anyway and the idea of juicing to me is about increasing the amount of nutrients you get in a healthy way, adding sugar negates much of the benefits.
I bought this as i am trying to be more healthy. Apart from the few recipes calling for sugar i quite like this book. My only gripe is the grammar of this book can be a bit confusing, has it been translated from another language as the directions sometimes can be contradictory!!
I have now used nearly every juice in this book. We have had some more than others. It has been fun trying some of the one's which had things we have never had before. I keep going back to this book every Sunday morning as a glass of juice before you walk the dog keeps you going till breakfast.
Only sampled a few pages, but having seen sugar as an ingredient of the first few smoothies I did read, including adding sugar to a mainly pineapple based smoothie, I knew this wasn't the book for me. Why add sugar to an already sweet, natural juice? In fact, why add sugar at all to any recipe which is meant to improve health? Bizarre! Returned for a refund. I'll be sticking with my Jason Vale books.
I have tried a few of the recipes already. As my taste buds awaken no doubt I will try many more (except those that contain bananas - hate them). A good book that I have already recommended to a friend.
