Raw Energy In A Glass by Stephanie Tourles
126 Nutrition-Packed Smoothies, Green Drinks, and Other Satisfying Raw Beverages to Boost Your Well-Being
Raw Energy In A Glass is my 2nd in my Raw Energy series, it offers more than 120 delicious, super-nutritious recipes for 100% raw food smoothies, shakes, green drinks, power shots, mocktails, longevity elixirs, and fermented beverages - all designed to boost your health and energy. Every recipe is vegan (some have a honey sweetening option) and I even include unique recipes for vegan yogurt drinks using nut milks and probiotics - that's new in the raw food realm!! You'll need a high-speed, high-powered kitchen blender to extract all the raw food goodness for these recipes - but particularly to make the nutmilks.
From Green Grapefruit Refresher and Ginger-Lime Mocktini to Golden Anti-Oxidant Fusion, Aloe and Pineapple Digestive Health Elixir, Pain-Away Chlorella Smoothie, and Sunbutter Banana Shake, there's no shortage of nourishing, energizing, and irresistible choices. This book makes the perfect gift for all your health-seeking friends and family members!
“Way more than your basic juice and smoothie book, Raw Energy in a Glass will be your daily go-to for all things simple, nutritious and delicious!”

Beautiful Layout, Good Information, Yummy Recipes

Stephanie Tourles begins Raw Energy in a Glass with her story since the publishing of Raw Energy. It's not exactly what you would think as life took some nasty turns for her, and she suffered some serious setbacks in her health and personal life. She decided to do something about it and started tackling her health with real food. Slowly, things started to get better and a new book came about through this journey. She never claims that raw food, real food is the cure all for everything that ails you, but she does do a good job explaining why this way of eating could help lead you to a healthier, happier you.
The Superfood Dictionary dives into all of the great ingredients, foods used in this book. It gives readers a better idea of the whys behind the different foods which I really like. It covers: Fruits; Veggies; Nuts, Seeds, and Nut and Seed Butters; Herbs and Spices; Oils; Sweeteners; Specialty Ingredients; and Essential Kitchen Equipment.
Once she gets through the basics of the philosophy, foods, and kitchen prep, Stephanie dives into loads of recipes that fall into these categories:
Nut and Seed Milks; Green Smoothies; Longevity Elixirs; Vegan Yogurt Drinks; Protein-Powered Smoothies and Shakes; Blended Salads; Thick and Frosty Shakes; Raw Shots; Fruity, Frothy, and Frosty Frappes; and Mocktails.
Many of the ingredients are ones that you'll have on hand or ones that you can easily pick up from your local farmers market or grocery store. There are some specialty ingredients that you'll need to pick up from a health food store or online. (Resources are given at the back of the book for those who can't find the ingredients locally - like me.) If you're not already using the ingredients in your home, you may suffer from sticker shock on some ingredients. Produce costs can be lowered by eating seasonally and freezing fruits/veggies when they are readily available.

This has become my favorite smoothie book. Yummy desserts as well as savory smoothies. I liked so much I purchased a copy for my son-in-law. You won't be disappointed.
"Dear Stephanie: I was at the recent Mother Earth News Fair in Seven Springs, PA, and so enjoyed all of your talks. You are a super hero to me. Seriously, I have been working in the plant world for decades and for the last 10 or so growing every herb I can in my little greenhouse business. You have inspired me beyond words to move forward with my ideas and start living with the plants. I have so many varieties. I start from seed and harvest the plants and now am making tinctures and oils and teas. I have loads of lemon balm and cone flower and thyme and sage and sweet Annie . . . just to name a very few. I know you see a lot of people, but I was the one in the audience with the braids and sat with my sister. I talked to you briefly when your books were already sold out. Anyway, I just got 2 of them and am waiting on the 3rd. Just again . . . thanks for the inspiration. I have made and use the Ravens Wings Foot Balm everyday on my grandson, daughter, and myself. God Bless and hope all is well. - Debbie Finney"
Get healthy (or healthier) this year! BySandras Kitchen Nook on January 10, 2015
This is a great little cookbook for anyone wanting to boost their health and/or energy. A lot of books like this rely heavily on bananas, and that is a problem for me. I get that bananas are very healthy, but I really dislike them. Thankfully, there are some great recipes here such as Tropical Berry Sunset Frappe (with citrus, strawberries, raspberries and mango), various yogurt drinks and protein shakes. This book is worth it for the first section alone! In "The Basics" if covers all kinds of information on juicing, blending, energy, getting the most out of your food and more. My favorite section is the Superfood Dictionary that breaks down exactly what is in each ingredient and what it is best for. It is divided into sections (Fruits, Vegetables, Nuts and more) which makes it easy to find what you're looking for.
This is a really great cookbook to get your new year started right. I'm not making big New Year's Resolutions to lose weight, exercise more etc., but I AM trying to get healthier this year. This book gives me a great start!
