Big Book of Juices & Green Smoothies

The Juice Lady’s (also known as Cherie Calbom) ‘Big Book of Juices & Green Smoothies’ is not only a recipe book with more than 400 recipes, but a tool to help the reader realize the goal Ms. Calbom dreams of helping others achieve and that is radiantly vibrant health. She includes a couple of testimonies in the introduction. One from a woman who had severe health issues whose life was turned around by juicing and the other from Ms. Calbom herself. Her testimony is inspiring.

The first chapter is what she calls, ‘All about juicing’ and that pretty much covers it. Lots of details and instruction on juicing.

Then starting with chapter two she fills each chapter with numerous recipes, and yes more tips and training.

This book seems like a good beginner’s guide to juicing and smoothies, but if you have specific health issues that you want to address, she gives you juice recipes to incorporate into your diet to do so.

If you are interested in juicing or making smoothies, or in just finding out more on the topic, I’d recommend reading this book. If you are wanting to get into juicing or know someone who is, then you will probably want a copy of the book for yourself. If you have specific health issues you want to work on, you will want your own copy as well.

My favorite part is actually in the introduction as she describes her reasons for doing what she does. That isn’t to take anything away from the rest of the book. It is full of great recipes for helping one get healthy and staying healthy.

Decisive by Chip and Dan Heath

Decisive: How To Make Better Choices In Life and Work by brothers Chip Heath and Dan Heath is an interesting book.

It breaks down the decision process into four areas where it can be less than ideal. Chip and Dan first introduce the reader to ‘the four villains of decision making’ in the introduction. Then in take two or three chapters to elaborate on each villain and how to overcome each one.

The villains are ‘narrow framing’, ‘self-serving information’ or ‘confirmation bias’, ‘short-term emotion’, and ‘overconfident’.

With each ‘villain’ they give examples of people/companies that have dealt with that particular one and they give ways to overcome it. Some of the information was familiar to me already, but much of it was presented in a way that even if I already knew the concept it seemed fresh and unique.

At the end of each chapter they made sure the main points were highlighted so that the reader would not miss any of them.

I enjoyed reading the book, found myself looking at decision-making with fresh insights and even found myself wanting to help others see how they could enjoy making better decisions too.

If you find yourself having to make numerous decisions for yourself, your family, or professionally this might be just the book to help you find the right ones. Even if you only have to make the occasional decision, this book is still very interesting and I recommend reading it.
