From Zach Berman and Ryan Slater--the longtime friends behind Vancouver's wildly successful Juice Truck--comes an accessible, informative and fresh book on the popular and healthy juicing and cleansing lifestyle.
There are lots of juice books out there, but few get it right. In The Juice Truck, Zach and Ryan make it their mission to make juicing approachable, fun, imaginative and healthy. Their obsession with juicing began when they took a trip to the Himalayas and Nepal, which quickly turned from a journey of self-discovery into a full-blown juice-seeking adventure once they were introduced to the most delicious, locally-sourced juices they had ever tried. They decided then to create the same community and street side accessibility to juice in Vancouver that had inspired them throughout their travels.
Alongside colourful and eye-catching photographs and illustrations that match their company's brilliant branding, The Juice Truck incorporates advice from health coach Colin Medhurst, and outlines the tools you need to make the perfect juice, the science behind juicing, and the benefits of each specific ingredient. The book dives into the juice cleanse and tells you everything you need to know about this health trend, giving you the top 10 tips to consider before embarking on a cleanse. It debunks other cleanses and outlines which ones are actually good for you and how to cleanse in a safe and proper way. The authors also break down and profile their favourite superior foods, tinctures, supplements and boosters. Once the reader is perfectly equipped, Zach and Ryan provide over 110 mouth-watering drink recipes from nut milks, smoothies, juice and hot drinks, as well as easy-to-make and delicious plant-based food recipes that can be eaten alone or accompany the many drink recipes. Interspersed throughout the recipes are case studies by experts in their fields on subjects like meditation, sleep, yoga, fiber, microbes, food allergies, sensitivities and intolerance, and the nervous system.
In addition to appealing to both loyal and first-time juicers everywhere (as well as the dedicated following of the Juice Truck in Vancouver), this book will be the definitive juicing guide for people who live a healthy, active lifestyle, and those who would like to transition to a healthier diet. This is not your average juice book--it's a combination of storytelling, nutrition and tried-and-true recipes that deserves a place in every juicer's kitchen.
