During intuitive readings for clients, when I tell them their most probable future, the most common question is, "How is THAT supposed to happen?"
Good question. But it's not one I can usually answer. I can see the destination, but not always the path that leads people to that future. And I don't need to, and neither do they. I tell people two things: 1) You have the power to create whatever future you choose, and 2) tragedy/problems/obstacles can lead you to your Divine life purpose, if you allow them to do so.
Victoria Boutenko frustration with family's health problems lead her to live out her Divine life purpose.
When she, her husband, and their two youngest children were left with no hope from the medical establishment, Victoria turned them all into raw vegans overnight. Their compelling story is told in the book Raw Family: A True Story of Awakening.
But when they hit a plateau in their healing, Victoria searched high and low for the missing link in their raw food plan. Green smoothies were her discovery. The original text of Green For Life was published in 2005. This latest, expanded edition, to be released in October 2010, is even better.
Green for Life is the scientific cousin to its follow-up Green Smoothie Revolution (another must have, and prior giveaway here on this blog). Green for Life is the book that makes the case, the proof, if you will, that green smoothies are the missing link in human nutrition. If you want the science behind the drink, this is the book for you.
It's really the book for everyone. Health care in this country is a political and personal issue. Boutenko writes, "mainstream medicine seems to have be focusing on the secondary causes of disease. To me that's like pushing a car that has run of gas with your bare hands instead of putting gas in it, or comforting a hungry person instead of feeding him." No one should give this book away after reading it, unless you are passing it on to a sick friend or relative.
Green smoothies make the healing power of chlorophyll tasty. Chlorophyll's healing ability cannot be understated. As written in the book, chlorophyll:
-reduces pain caused by inflammation
-helps sores heal faster
-builds a high red blood cell count
-makes the body more alkaline
-improves milk production
-resists bacteria in wounds
-cleans and deodorizes bowel tissues
-eliminates bad breath
-provides iron to organs
-helps purify the lives
and way more.
Green smoothies make ingesting chlorophyll FUN!
After you read the science and the amazing testimonials, you'll be itching to make your first smoothie. There's 39 recipes in this book. If that's not enough for you, go get Green Smoothie Revolution, which has over 200 recipes.
I created four of them! I haven't named them yet. If anyone wants to bless them with cool names, go ahead
-2 sweet apples
-2 handfuls of swiss chard
-handful cilantro sprigs
-2 handfuls kale
-2 handfuls grapes
-2 handfuls swiss chard
Few books are as "must-have" as this one. Either you or a loved one is suffering from a major health problem. Take a chance. Buy a blender and make your own smoothies for a month. You don't have anything to lose. All you have to gain is your health, and that is worth more than money.
Victoria Boutenko is a Warrior Mom. She broke from conventional thinking to heal herself and her family. As she wrote: she had to find the true answer or die.
Writing this brings tears to my eyes because I lie awake at night sometimes thinking of every way I can to heal my children. I took her book to heart, understanding how she felt back in 1994 when doctors told her nothing could be done for her family short of medications and surgery. I've also heard the words, "There's nothing else we can do for you." Now, both myself and my oldest son each drink a quart of green smoothies everyday.

To you Victoria Boutenko, I raise my glass of green smoothie to you and say, "Thank you." When you live out your Divine life purpose, you give others permission to do the same.
