Raw: Leafy greens are best because cooking denatures the enzymes in the plants to some degree. It is more difficult to digest them however, because cooking helps with that. You might consider a raw salad and par-boil for other meals. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Is 1 avacodo, handful almonds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, spinach leaves, tomatoe and onion a healthy lunch?
Is it better to use canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin? Canned pumpkin pie mix or just plain canned pumpkin?
Fresh but celebrate!: I believe in fresh fruits&veggies/shopping in the periphery of the store. However, if you have a family recipe or something that you use once per year and it's canned pie mix, go for it! Generally speaking - fresh/single ingredients are better than mixtures/processed foods since you know more about what you're mixing with the single ingredients. We can definitely discuss more about sugars, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is my vegetable intake okay? I eat mostly green veggies(broccoli, mixed greens, green pepper, green beans, etc.). My fruit intake is quite colorful.
Sounds good to me: I recommend people eat fruits & vegetables of all colors as the colors are made by different beneficial micronutrients. It's great that you're eating the veggies you do & that you're getting colorful fruits, so you're doing fine, but consider adding in some red/orange/yellow peppers, onions, carrots, tomatoes & purple cabbage. You might also consider seeing a good homeopath for your thought issues. ...Read more
Are apples, cherry tomatoes, peaches, light yogurts, avocados, carrots, and watermelon good for diabetics?
Diabetes and Food: I think the simple answer is no. But, when you look at these specific items in your list there are things that are lower in carbohydrates like the yogurt and the avocado. But, in each person with diabetes, the answer may vary based upon how well controlled their blood sugars are. The goal is to eat more protein and less carbohydrates. That means less sugars, less fruits and less carbs overall. ...Read more
Yes: Because with whole fruits and veggies, you get the fiber which results in less consumption and quicker satiety (fullness). Smoothies have more sugar from the fruits and veggies due to more being used to make the smoothie. Plus, most smoothies have added ingredients like sugars, syrups, powders, etc - unless you make it yourself. ...Read more
I do not eat vegetables or fruit.Just meat fish pasta rice. What is the best combination of fruits, veg, nuts and seeds i can blend into a drink.
Almost anything: Almost any fruit and/or vegetable combination can be made into a smoothie along with nuts, seeds, yoghurt or milk for protein. Banana helps make it creamy especially if not using yoghurt or milk. It also helps for some of the fruit to be frozen (like berries). Google "smoothies" for suggestions. ...Read more
Does mixing juiced vegetables and fruits with soda (which I dont drink) reduce the nutrients from the fruit and vegetables?
No: i would think not if you are just using soda water as a way to give it a little fizz. This would in no way change the nutrients . Carbon Dioxide is a rather inert gas in these situations., if you are using something like 7-up you are adding unnecessary calories ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a breastfeeding mother do a juice cleanse? Fresh juiced fruit and vegetable juice for breakfast, lunch and dinner?
Sure.: It doesn't sound like it would have adequate calories for the woman, but should be fairly nutrient dense (watch out for too much sugar), but not harmful to the baby. Sometimes babies can be affected by the foods their mothers eat (i.E: get constipated babies if moms eat broccoli, or drink milk). ...Read more
Yes: Very starchy indeed. So starchy you could probably mash a few up and spray 'em on your shirt collars. Well, maybe not quite but YES, starchy & definitely a vegetable.
