Eating fruits and vegetables is a vital part of a healthy, balanced diet
' and suggest '

' as an easy and satisfying way to meet that requirement. They recommend keeping a juicer permanently on the kitchen counter so that juicing becomes a way of life. An introduction covers different kinds of juices and blenders - both of which are needed for these recipes - and juicing methods. Standard weights are provided for different quantities (single, a handful, a bunch) of fruits and vegetables.
