Mark, what do you mean? It's mostly to get a mineralrich source when staying there for 7-8 months. You mean there's enough minerals in fruits in India?
Thanks Joe, is it ok to eat thick-skinned fruits like bananas and durians without rinsing?
Thanks, it's good to know that you can feel good without the greens over there.
How did you go over there? Im considering going back to India soon xoxo
I'd like to know too - I'm going to India at the end of April and have no idea what to expect in terms of fruits and veggies. Considering staying away from veggies altogether as I don't want to get sick. Jx
eat your weeds i eat them every day from my yard and it is free cheap and better than anything i could get in the stores
look up the local indigous wild edibles, did you listen to sergei's talk from rawpalooza ?
You should be fine. Just make sure to wash them in cold water and some eco-friendly vegetable wash (depending where you are, you can use tap, but if you're nervous, use boiled and filtered water that has cooled). I live in Meghalaya, in the northeast and am able to eat my veggies from the market raw after washing in tap water.
NO NO NO. I lived in India for 6 years and we NEVER ate leafy greens. If you do, make sure you buy them from one of the super fancy stores. We used to soak our other veggies in salt. Good luck.
