The person who turned me onto 811 said not to eat vegetables grown beneath the soil. But I am seeing them in recipes all the time. Am I avoiding these for any reason? Or did I get misinformation?
Did you ask them why?
Root vegetables have different qualities and nutrients compared to fruits and green leaves.,however,they may be more difficult to digest than fruit and greens,carrots and beetroot are prob best in this respect and more often eaten raw than other root vegetables.
Roots of plants have a correspondence to the head in humans,and are said to benefit the nerve/sense organism.
Yes I asked and he said they are "harder to digest" but like I said, I have seen a lot of root vegetables used in LFRV recipes and haven't seen anything discussing avoidance of root vegetables. Hmm. So carrot and beetroot are ok? Interesting note about the correspondence of root vegetables and the head. Thanks for your response!
Carrots and beetroot are more likely to be used raw in salads rather than roots like parsnip or swedes.Also due to their bright colour they carry the flower element into the root,making them easier to digest raw than the above mentioned.You can also add them to smoothie mixes maybe.
Onions are used in small quantities by some LFRV folk as well in salads,would'nt add them to smoothies though.Potatoes are actually a stem vegetable,not a true root veg,and are unlikely to be eaten raw.
Root vegetables have a much higher sugar content than those grown on vines. But generally speaking if your not consuming a high fat diet it shouldn't matter too much
