Philadelphia, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/25/2014 --Jennifer Thompson, and John Wiley & Sons, Inc., the firm behind the international bestselling Dummies book series, proudly announce the release of Green Smoothies for Dummies, conceived of to make getting healthy easier and tastier than ever for busy people in today's cyber-speed world.
Educated as a systems engineer at the University of Pennsylvania, author Jennifer Thompson turned her scientifically trained mind on healing herself from an extreme, mysterious and exceedingly uncomfortable skin condition through the very same raw, green principles and recipes she shares in this just released volume.
Thompson has work with raw food, juices, smoothies, and detox for over two decades, leveraging her own success to help other people to heal and recover from a diverse array of health conditions, including those who merely wish to enhance their daily lives through healthier eating. In addition to writing, Thompson shares her expertise worldwide by conducting lectures, workshops, professional trainings, and offering one-on-one consultations at some of the world's most respected health and detox centers. In addition, she sees private clients in person and remotely by appointment. Thompson's creative approach to wellness through food, her original raw recipes and time saving lifestyle tips can be found on her popular website, healthybliss.net.
In response to her clients' requests for a reliable 'bible' to consult for preparing Thompson's delicious and easy to make healthy concoctions, Thompson wrote Green Smoothies For Dummies as a beginner's guide to the world of drinkable greens. In easy to read language, incorporating ingredients accessible the world over, Thompson explains the benefits of green smoothies, and provides over 90 delectable recipes designed to make anyone 'eat their greens' with pleasure, and even crave vegetables instead of carbs.
Rather than merely offering recipes to follow, Thompson provides a comprehensive education in the benefits of green eating, introducing the bountiful flavors and therapeutic properties of each ingredient, as well as how to combine these most effectively for complete nutrition.
