Vegetables and fruits


Try to eat as much local, organic or non-sprayed produce as possible. It is more likely to be vine-ripened (contain more phytochemicals, etc.), and less likely to be sprayed with the agents that are used to prevent over-ripening.

A good strategy is to find a source of good fruits and vegetables and fill the freezer full for the winter months. It is much better to buy local vine-ripened produce and freeze it than to purchase from across the continent or world.

Store bought fruits and vegetables that are sprayed or are not organic should be peeled and the seeds should not be eaten.


Juicing

Fresh vegetable juices are truly a life-giving drink. They have to be freshly juiced to receive the most benefit. We recommend a mastication juicer that will juice leafy greens and grasses such as barley grass, oat grass and lemon grass.
Fruit juices (except fresh lemon, lime and tomato) are not recommended as they are highly glycemic. Eat fresh fruit instead to avoid the glycemic spike. You can use fruit to flavor your vegetable juice. Here is Dr. Rhoads' juice recipe for greater health:

Process the following in a juicer:

1 lb carrots
3-4 celery stalks
2 apples (if not organic, peel and remove seeds)
1 lemon, peeled
1/2 - 1 beet
Small bunch of spinach
1/3 bunch of parsley
Small piece of ginger root

Cucumber
Green pepper
