Last post was about fruit. This one is about veggies. After fruit, veggies (especially raw), are the most important food we can eat. In order to eat them raw, I suggest three options:

1. Juice: When you juice fruits and veggies, you can concentrate a high amount of nutrients that will be digested quickly, and will help your body's reserves get charged! Juices of fruits and veggies are delicious, and you can juice enough to drink two or three times a day for two days (more than that, the juice looses too many nutrients and ferments).

2. Smoothies: This is the quickest form of delicious flavors with veggies incorporated. Mix some veggies with banana, orange juice, berries, ice, and ready!! This takes a little bit longer to digest, and you can't concentrate much nutrients since you are eating the fiber, but it will at the same time clean your colon, and your digestive tract.

3. Salads: This is the most conventional way of eating raw veggies. However, experiment with it! Get new veggies you've never tried before, combine flavors, make your own dressing. This will improve your motivation, and you will discover great salads that came out of your thinking box!

Just a little reminder: when drinking juice, your stomach should be totally empty (either first thing in the morning, or after about three hours of any meal). Then, after 45 minutes to 1 hour you can eat something else...
