30 Bananas a Day!

Hello everyone!!

I am having issues with some veggies that at least for me are very difficult to eat raw like cauliflower, I mean I doubt that in nature any human could eat it so easily and it doesn´t have any delicious flavor, but when it is cooked or at least steamed it tastes so goood! 

Even in this cases is not okay to steam those veggies at least a little bit? How do you manage to eat veggies that you don´t enjoy raw? I have tried many recipes, but for me they are not good.

Any suggestions or comments?

Thank you !! <3

Cruciferous Vegetables

Broccoli
Cauliflower
Cabbage
Brussels sprouts
Kale
Bok choy (greens)
Collard greens
Spinach
All are disqualified as optimal or even appropriate due to high cellulose content. Our bodies have limited ability to access the nutrients encased in the cellulose structure, so most of what we eat of them must only be eliminated from the body, which unnecessarily taxes our eliminative processes. These vegetables also contain irritating and indigestible oxalic acid and are bland or unpleasant to eat in their raw state. The exception in this category is young or baby spinach, which has what most people describe as a pleasant flavor and is relatively easy to digest in moderate quantities since its oxalic acid content is low at this point in its growth.

Also a quote from The 80/10/10 Diet book from page 27:

"It is true that cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collards, brussels sprouts, and cabbage are loaded with nutrients, including soluble fiber.  But they also contain cellulose and other difficult to digest or even indigestible fibers.  By indigestible fibers, I mean that our digestive system cannot break down these materials and must therefore eliminate them.  And unlike soluble fibers, these indigestible fibers are rigid and may scratch and scrape our delicate digestive lining as they pass through...These vegetables are best digested in their youngest and most tender state.  For best results, they must be thoroughly chewed or mechanically predigested via the use of the blender or shredding device...To be sure, we are capable of swallowing vegetation that contains cellulose and other rough, insoluble fibers, but such foods put a great load on our organs of digestion and elimination."

 OOOO!! So I shouldn't be eating those... ok ok, now I understand hahaha. Thank you so much! So I shouldn't cook them either right? 

Well think of it as good, better, best options.  If you are trying to heal a serious condition or want top athletic performance you want to stay with the easy to digest stuff.
