Victoria Boutenko, Elaina Love, and Chad Sarno have been leaders in the raw food movement since the 1990s. Each of them maintained and promoted the 100 percent raw diet for years. Since then, all three have independently arrived at the same conclusion: that a totally raw diet is not necessarily the best diet. One reason for their shift in thinking is the latest scientific research on the impact of omega essential fatty acids on human health. Studies show that if eaten in excess, omega-6s can cause inflammation and obesity. A typical raw food diet contains large quantities of nuts and seeds, most of which are extremely high in omega-6s and low in omega-3s. 
Raw foodists are not the only ones lacking sufficient omega-3s in their diet. Because omega-3s are easily damaged by heat, anyone whose diet is high in processed foods and oils probably has an omega-3 deficiency. Many symptoms of this deficiency can be mistaken for other health problems or nutrient deficiencies, so few people realize the cause of their ailments. Boutenko's chapters on omegas provide readers more in-depth nutritional information. One hundred recipes--from raw to steamed and lightly cooked dishes, from appetizers to desserts--offer readers the means to enjoy a more sustainable, healthy, and energetic lifestyle.

Using lively stories from her vast experience leading healing retreats, best-selling author Victoria Boutenko guides readers on the adventure of how to organize and carry out their own green smoothie programs with friends and family. Boutenko explains that the detoxifying and healing properties of drinking green smoothies are at their most effective after a full seven days, and she shares a number of testimonials and letters from participants in her popular retreats giving voice to the healthful transformations they realized. In "Green Smoothie Retreat, " the reader will find recommendations for fun group activities, nutritional information, and recipes for a seven-day revitalizing retreat. This book can be used by novices and experts alike, since it covers the basics about green smoothies and also goes into great depth about intriguing subjects such as the key healing properties of greens, analysis of water, and vital nutrients that enhance health.
