GreenSmoothieFor those of us who aren’t celebrities, it’s difficult to find the time and money to commit to a healthy and effective cleanse. While retreats are lovely, they can also be prohibitively expensive. Cleansing at home is great, but anyone with a roommate can tell you how difficult it is to stick to a diet when someone’s eating pizza at the same table. The good news is, there’s now a practical guide to getting through a seven-day detox at home from acclaimed green smoothie authority, Victoria Boutenko: Green Smoothie Retreat: A 7-Day Plan to Detox and Revitalize at Home (on sale: January 6, 2015).

Boutenko, whose award-winning work has appeared on Gaiam TV and Lifetime Network, as well as in the top nutrition and vegetarian publications, demonstrates how the bounty of minerals and nutrients available in greens can be harnessed for delicious and convenient consumption. Her recipes provide quick, tasty drinks that eliminate toxins, correct nutritional deficiencies, and boost energy.

Perhaps most importantly, Green Smoothie Retreat covers the practical aspects of the retreat: when to start, what you need at home and how much it will cost, how to prepare a daily schedule, and finally, how to re-enter the world when your home-retreat is finished.

Complete with amazing success stories from people who have participated in Victoria Boutenko’s retreats, and chock full of delicious recipes for smoothies, soups, salads and puddings, this is a must-read for anyone looking to boost their health and vitality.
