I notice dr. grahams book 80 10 10 does not include recipes with cruciferous vegetables, are they ok to eat or will they get in the way of optimum health? I know they are hard to digest for some people, but i really really have a thing for cauliflower lately...any thoughts?
broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, brussel sprouts
Yes he does... he includes cabbage in many recipes
can you name some? I can't seem to find them
Eat as them! As much as you want, they're the most nuturient dense foods on earth! Oh yea, a lot of people on here think its only healthy to eat Iceburg and Romaine. Oxalic acid is naturally occuring, like all foods don't have a "anti nutrient".. Really we just don't have the technology to analize every single thing in our foods. It would be foolish to believe only certain foods contian these "anti nutrients" for their own protection. Just eat your cauliflower if you enjoy it, you could be eating much worse.
yeah, just eat it if it treats you well. i like some cruciferous vegetables, but if i eat too much of something with oxalic acid, like collard greens, i will really get a bad stomach ache and feel nauseated. i've felt it from eating too much mature spinach too. so, no, they're not the worst thing in the world, but there are legitimate reasons why some people stay away from them. your body will let you know. :)
thanks for the response! I feel i need more variety then just romaine and iceburg!
