Greens or plants to avoid?

Ask the Nutritionist

Posted by smokey2255 on 7 years ago I am about to embark on my life changing journey and have a few questions before I kick off the party. Are there any greens that I need to avoid such as the greens on certain plants ie. carrots, radishes, tomatoes? I cook with a fair mount os ground dried sasafras leaves can these be juiced as well? Are there any general unsafe plants that I need to avoid. Thanks in advance Larry

    Tomatoes are a member of the night shade family so I would not chance the leaves on them. Until the early part of the last century people only raised tomatoes as a flower bed plant and thought they were posion.

    don't use carrot greens. Beet greens are great to use. Stick with kale (there are 2 or 3 different varieties), chard (at least 3 different varieties), bok choy, spinach (i've found baby spinach to be easier to come by in organic form), beet greens, cabbage, romaine lettuce, celery, parsley, basil, cilantro, wheatgrass. Zucchini, cucumber, green peppers, green grapes and green apples are other greens to us too. That should give you more than enough variety in greens.

    To Kyle: I wish you many blessings on your journey to defeat your cancer. I am undergoing melanoma cancer treatments right now too. I am trusting God and juicing to make me whole! The juicing has cleared my mind and I can feel the extra energy in my body. Best to you!
