hes not 'anti vegetables', hes just honest about them. Theyre at best a backup food. He doesn't create a 'good' and 'bad' list like a diet author would, he just tells the science of it then lets you decide. If youre fine with them no one is stopping you and Peat wouldn't say not to, youre supposed to decide for yourself by perception. I personally get taken down a notch, or multiple notches, from eating greens. Theyre too astringent
Hmm. I thought I remembered another quote about him eating broth, but not certain I got it right. Here's a couple of quotes of recommendations:Such_Saturation said:
HD: I looked earlier on as I was doing some searching around and saw that the main principle sources it seems of magnesium were nuts and seeds, and I think there were small amounts in soy, but I think principally what would you recommend as a good magnesium source?
RP: Fruit juices and coffee. I think if you want a really intense source you can boil leaves like kale or beet greens or something just for two or three minutes, and the green water that comes out quickly is very concentrated in magnesium and calcium. That's a very, pretty safe supplement. Coffee and fruit juices are practical and something you can do every day.
