Eating raw kale

Common Questions and Answers about Eating raw kale


129961 tn?1189759434 Is it ok for my German Shepherd pup to eat raw pumpkin? I was scooping some out tonight to make pumpkin seeds and she was going nuts from the smell. I gave her a little taste and she loved it! Is it ok?
3923358 tn?1358555814 One problem with raw food diets is that people think anything is digestible raw, which isn't true. You see all this raw kale and broccoli in salad bars now, but the stomach can't break down the complex fibers in these plants very well raw. You can do it if you juice them or if you cook them, but eating raw is not as easy as advertised. So take care here to do what suits you.
Avatar m tn I saw someone suggested to steam it instead of eating raw. Please kindly comment. Currently the list of veggies I used for juicing are: Garlic Onion broccoli Beetroot cucumber lemons Apples pears grapes celery carrots Ginger Green leafs (all kinds, like cabbage, kale, Lettuce, etc) Another related question. I know meat is not healthy for us. Fish seems OK, but in USA here most fishes are farm raised (including salmon), which means lots of GMO added - probably not good as well.
Avatar n tn I too have a raw stomach from eating raw veggies. I also have trouble digesting nuts now. I get a terrible feeling of dread after eating nuts. My stomach struggles and keeps me up at night with a reflexive action. I have been told that the stomach weakens from emotional turmoil. But, I think that diet can have a lot to do with the stomach weakening anyway. Chinese Medicnine recommends warm foods always. It takes heat to digest food in the stomach.

1166386 tn?1379009113 ( It looks like i will have to go back to doing my green smoothies and eating raw. I like eating raw though... Been doing that for about a 1yr and half off and on... it helped me lose weight and stabilized my blood sugars to normal(80-90)and gave me so much energy to workout 6 days a week. I have been having bad gallbladder attacks and the only thing that seems to smooth it is my green smoothies(mixed whole fruit and kale).
Avatar f tn This is generally true with vegetables in the cabbage family in general, such as kale and collards. I know, raw broccoli used to be a fad and now raw kale is, but fads aren't facts. Raw kale is very hard to digest. Also, the carotenoids in vegetables are much higher in cooked vegetables. Spinach, on the other hand, can be inflammatory when cooked and is best eaten raw if that's your choice of vegetable.
Avatar m tn got you, so, any rule of thumb on what should be eating raw and what not? Im eating raw kale, brocolli and carros, beans and quinoa that makes pretty much my diet every day with fruits....what do you think I should add? Thanks for your very knoledgeble insight.
Avatar n tn This is also why people who eat too much fiber supplements will have this issue or people who eat raw kale, which is too fibrous to digest and is best eaten cooked despite the current fad of eating raw kale. It's why so many people eat most cabbage family plants fermented -- it gets rid of this problem. Does this help at all?
Avatar f tn Raw green beans are good, and so are raw sugar snap peas. Maybe a handful of raisins. Maybe you would like kale chips. Learn to cook using veggies, olive oil, herbs, fish. These things are real food, not junk.
Avatar n tn Try this for Arthritis: · Emphasize raw fruits and vegetables for a diet low in protein and calories and rich in the nutrients needed for re-building. · Limit protein consumption to plant sources such as legumes and potatoes. An overload of protein, especially animal protein, causes painful uric acid deposits in the joints. · Consume large amounts of dark green leafy vegetables such as kale, as they maintain and build cartilage.
Avatar n tn I eat practically everything healthy that you can think of but my favorites have to be grapefruit, Kale smoothies and boiled yams!
Avatar f tn Some of these might bother you but most won't, and cooked they will bother you less than raw, since many really aren't digestible raw even though people are eating them raw a lot lately, such as kale. So go and experiment. As for you IBS, that's a description, not a disease -- it means your tummy hurts. The question still is, why? Allergies? Intolerances (such as to dairy and wheat, very common)? Eating too fast? Going to bed too soon after eating? So many reasons.
Avatar f tn The way you prepare food also matters -- for example, spinach is best eaten raw, whereas broccoli, kale, collards and the like are best cooked. So it's more complicated. The good thing is, you do a lot better with vegetables than any other category of food, but if you ate too many vegetables you'd be left without room for fats and protein, which are also essential.
Avatar f tn Peanut butter and apples, any and all fruits and raw veggies with hummus for dipping..yum!! I'm also a big fan of nuts I carry a bag of assorted nuts everywhere..

Do you have any symptoms now? What are your Free T4 and Free T3 levels, along with reference ranges?
Avatar f tn Hey everyone, How much should I worry about cruciferous vegetables if I am being treated for hypo with Hashimoto's? I adore kale and had been eating smoothies with a leaf or two of raw kale lately... Does cooking help? Should I avoid it entirely or just limit consumption each week? Thanks!
Avatar n tn Pip is right eating frequently the healthy foods like fruit and raw veggies ,will help you not get hungry there are also low cal dips to dip veggies in , I make up a bowl of coleslaw to nibble at when I get hungry, made with low cal dressing..
363243 tn?1331037450 I'm clueless as to not eating certain vegetables with Hashi's. Can someone explain this and what goitrogens is? My Endocronologist never mentioned this to me.
Avatar f tn All ingredients can be placed in a crock pot and cooked, or, the protein sources can be quickly seared on both sides, leaving the center raw and, the veges can be quickly sauteed al dente for those who prefer a closer to raw diet. The veges should be very finely chopped. Antioxidants, a Calcium, magnesium and vitamin d supplement, and a multi-vitamin supplement should also be added to the diet by weight.
Avatar f tn That's not to say that I run around eating a bag of candy or a bowl or ice cream or a piece of cake every day. But, I don't want to live to 100 and go the rest of my time eating wheat grass and kale and an apple, or I'd be miserable and bored with eating. So, I like your spirit.
Avatar f tn I need some healthy and quick and easy breakfast ideas cause my mornings are busy. Basically I need to change my eating habits and my diet diary has me on1300 calories to go from 210 to 175 in 6 months. Is that to fast or should I increase my weight goal. Please help!!!!!
Avatar f tn My green juice takes about 15 minutes to make, and is made up of collard greens, kale, bok choy, cilantro, tomato, pineapple, papaya, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and sometimes an apple or a pear. The "seed shot" is raw pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and sesame seeds. When people ask me if I take a multi-vitamin, I usually say that I think my green juice, seed shot, and a few nuts, are my multi-vitamin. Am I right?

1092183 tn?1257130721 There is more calcium occuring in beans and nuts than in milk. Almonds, SESAME SEEDS, Chickpeas, Collards (raw leaves), Figs (dried), Filberts (Hazelnuts) and Kale. Anyways, the best way to get better fingernails is by eating healthy. You may not be getting enough iron, calcium, zinc, protein, silicon, and vitamins A, B complex, and C in your diet so remember to be balanced in what you eat.
1654035 tn?1332428778 You can either take more iron via vitamins (I take a raw iron supplement sold at Whole Foods) and/or start upping the amount of leafy greens your are eating. One way to do that is to drink green smoothies. I add dandelions greens, spinach and kale to my daily smoothie. You would be surprised, but even with carrying twins I am not feeling tired at all and I am almost 36 weeks- anything that may help with worth a try!
Avatar n tn It took a couple of weeks for my kidney function moved from 50% to 85% and my mono symptoms were gone.
