I started drinking concentrated vegetable and fruit drinks, along with a daily capful of Isagenix cleanse every morning, back in 2004. Powdered
organic vegetables/fruits are easy to digest and build up your immune system. No cold, flu, etc, since.
With me, a small amount of fresh veggies does wonders, too much causes me problems. But I can eat quite a bit of most veggies if they are cooked
pretty well. So I make a lot of soup and the minerals go into the broth. The plant defense chemicals in most foods are not heat stable, ten minutes
of boiling will denature them and make them harmless. Some, like in the potato are heat stable, but potato defense chemistry does not seem to bother
me healthwise much. Probably because we have been eating potatoes for many generations. I can't eat many tomatoes though, even cooked. I like them
but they cause some hives on my forehead and will mess up my intestines if I eat too much.
It took me over a year of testing just to figure out I am allergic to the banana if I eat it with potatoes or tomatoes in the same day or two. I do
get a cross reaction with other veggies and banana too, mostly root veggies. So I gave up bananas. The banana defense system chemicals are not heat
stable, I can eat banana bread no problem.
It is uncomprehensible that it can take so much observation to find out about one food cross reaction. With the banana, I get allergic to my
underware and socks latex bands. something gets released in my sweat or something. Also the banana makes me cough when I am almost finished with
eating it, the riper the banana the worse it is. If I eat three bananas it starts to effect my breathing. I can't seem to get enough air.
