Celery, carrot, cucumber, banana, apple, mango, water melon puree is this good for my health and what benefits could I get? I'm now 36 yrs. Old,
Sounds yummy: I trust you are not adding a lot of sugar. This has vitamins and minerals and the key is that you are eating this instead of the salty / sugary / greasy stuff most people overeat.

Hello, I eat 1 apple, 1 orange, 1 tomato, 1 carrot, 1 egg and 1 stalk celery everyday. Do I have excessive vitamin A in my diet?
Definitely NO: The only one of those foods that has ANY Vitamin A is eggs and 1 egg has only 8% the recommended daily intake of Vitamin A. Vitamin A is only found in foods of animal origin.

Nothing wrong: There is no concern about any of the ingredients you mention. Am not sure whether to say it is "good" since other unprocessed foods are probably as good.

If you feel it helps you then there is no reason that I know of not to continue with it. ...Read more
