Incredible power of vegetables

I am not following Paleo diet, and I probably never will. I was focusing on increasing my vegetable intake, even before watching this. Now I am even more convinced that's the right way to go.

I love vegetables, if you have ever read my daily check in you will see that I am gloriously happy with a huge salad filled with colorful fruits and veggies atop a big plate of assorted delicious greens. Dressed with only red wine vinegar......or pomegranate vinegar or garlic vinegar, etc. and a splash of good olive oil or coconut oil, usually topped with chopped boiled egg and freshly grated cheese for protein.

Also love roasted veggies or veggies caramelized in their own juices.

Keep your ice cream sundaes , give me some veggies :D

That was awesome! I actually got a masticating juicer for Christmas because even as a vegetarian I feel like I eat mostly cooked veggies and I do not eat enough fruit. So here is an example of what I am having this morning sweet potato, two celery, one apple, real ginger, kale...this makes about 8 oz glass and I add back a bit of the pulp...I don't usually do a sweet potato it's usually five carrots...I switch everyday between kale/spinach apples/pears/kiwi celery/bell peppers. Any ways I have this once a day with a boiled egg for one of my meals usually breakfast. I have seen, without meaning to, a drastic reduction in my allergy related asthma...which is caused by my two cats...and my dry winter skin is suddenly not so dry ? This is only after six weeks of having a juice a day. I also feel energetic and have not had my usual winter depression...I do not know if this is the reason but I usually am pretty depressed this time of year. Food for thought LOL.

Also I feel over privileged even posting that I got a juicer. Unfortunately the sad truth is so many families can not afford to eat this way, do not have these foods readily available, do not have the time and do not have the education. I am a privileged person with time on my hands. Kind of felt I had to say that. On that note I have to go shovel a bit of SNOW.

Well, yeah, I'm all about eating your veggies. Definitely. I think our broccoli to french fry ratio should definitely be weighted in favor of broccoli.

Where are the clinical trials to the Wahls protocol? My research-fu is failing me. I am seeing a lot of stuff on Amazon, and Dr. Wahls' own site, but I'm not seeing any in the medical journals.
