The book ‘Catching Fire’ explains why cooking food and eating meat and eggs made us who we are and why cooked veggies are easier to digest than raw ones. Vichoria Victoria Boutenko is persuading me otherwise.

Not too happy with this book. I am not privileged to find all of the ingredients that make up her recipes, but Green for Life is impossible to read without craving a fresh, green smoothie.

Lists with This Book. Feb 21, Kelli rated it really liked it. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I did learn quite a bit about just how beneficial they are from this book, which I was glad to know.

Sadly, I know of no other nutrition book liffe suggests such a wide gulf between what humans were botenko to eat and what we eat. Despite the pseudo-science, there are some good suggestions in here about getting more greens into your diet.
