I simply love fruit! I also love greens! I love 80/10/10 and everything about it. My health has improved beyond my wildest dreams. And, I'm not through yet! LOL
Many in the 811rv community recommend a pound of greens a day. I am doing that in my juice feasting journey which ends in 2 weeks. I love green smoothies and my salads each night are legendary! I do have no problem with the pound of greens per day.
A dear friend of mine and 30BAD'r and 811rv of course! and I discussed the necessity of following that rule. I teach this as part of my mentoring to my students who are improving their health via the road to high carb/low fat. My friend is very well educated in the health and raw food movement and I value her sage wisdom. She doesn't feel it is a necessary part of a 811rv lifestyle. Again, I do value her viewpoints. I also love my pound of greens per day.
What is your take on this important part of a healthy low fat raw vegan diet?
2 weeks is stretching it. 1 week, maybe 10 days would be tops. I put my greens in plastic bags you get in the produce section - don't use the expensive "Green Bags" they don't work worth diddly! I lay them flat and they are fine. Check them once every three days to see how they are doing. I have 2 refrigerators actually and both are packed!
Two fridges? That's awesome. I've been thinking about getting another fridge lately. Our house is tiiiiny, though. If my boyfriend didn't cook, I'd get rid of the oven and stick another fridge there. Someday...
Nah. He makes me almost as happy as greens ;)
I have two refrigerator's and they are both stuffed!! Of course I have three meat eating men in my family too. So, one is know as the "Healthy" fridge!! LOL But, there is healthy stuff in theirs too!!!
Yep usually 1/2 - 1 lb or more a day Green juice and green smoothies are always my back up
Joni use baby spinach - not so much oxalic acid. Also we get sufficient calcium from all the plant based leafy greens and it really isn't an issue if you eat ENOUGH. Sounds like you do and I wouldn't worry your sweet head about it. LOL Honest! Remember when we believed that calcium came from drinking milk and eating cheese! Rediculous! They ROB us of calcium. LOL
Hugs and great job on the greens!
I am so glad you made me aware that I was not eating enough greens! I will finally be there today! I made two green smoothies with a whole bag of spinach(10oz) and will have a big salad for dinner(5oz.), almost there!!! One more ounce to go!!!!
