“Busy” is a way of life for Rosemary Ferguson: She’s traveled the world as one of Britain’s top models, and today is a professional nutritionist and mother of three. For her, juices and smoothies are anything but a fad—they’re a way to pack vital nutrients into your day.
By upping your intake of simple, natural ingredients like blueberries, ginger, and kale, you can overhaul your health from the inside out! As Rosemary discovered, “skin complaints, headaches, fatigue, and stress can be dramatically improved.” Handily arranged by need, the recipes in Juice + Nourish will help anyone:
Detox & Heal (rehydration, liver cleansers, gut health)
Rest & De-stress (mood boosters, sleep aids, stress relievers)
Care & Preserve (anti-aging, healthy skin and hair, weight loss)
Protect & Strengthen (immunity boosters, cold and cough soothers, anti-inflammatories), and more!


Very thorough and colorful! (4 stars)

I have an early childhood memory of my mom—a fad-following health nut for as long as I can recall—giving me a cup of fresh orange juice. It was this heavenly frothy stuff that she'd made in a really noisy late-70's model juicer. Since then I've never been a big juice drinker because there's just no substitute for fresh juices and I honestly loathe cleaning mine. But darn did this book make me reconsider dusting it off and making use of it more often.

While I've honestly not made any of the recipes yet due to time, I very much liked what I found here and the overall attitude for the most part. The only thing I wasn't a fan of (and never will be) was the detoxing section. If you're interested in juice fasting/detoxing please consult your doctor before following the advice here, especially if you suffer from any medical conditions, mental illnesses, or take medication regularly.

Ferguson's juices are beautiful and I loved that she was so very thorough. There's a juice for everything in here and she explains so much about why each ingredient is included I felt like anything I made with these recipes would be an almost magical potion. If you're new to juicing and looking for very specific focus juices such as energy boosting or anti-inflammatory blends I really think you'll be impressed. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who wants to take their juicing to the next level or newbies who want a lot of inspiration and education.

  1. Great recipe! Thanks! I want to make a week of detox for my body but I hate mash and pulp that often left by bad juicers. I'm looking for easy to use and clean juicer discover here. Maybe one of you have some point to which I should pay attention while choosing?
