"Generally, fruits, roots, and tubers provide a high concentration of nutrients along with low concentrations of toxic antimetabolic substances."
If I'm not mistaken, Peat is fond of carrots, turnips, beets, potatoes and squashes.

They can be beneficial in some contexts but he always says that fruit sugar should be preferred. I drink orange juice and apple juice too. I may eat potatoes occasionally. Each time I eat a carrot salad my digestion seems to stop for several hours.

Even away from meals, it stops my digestion for so long it will mess with my next meal. That was the case the last few times I tried, but I will probably try again in the future as I think my digestion is faster since last time.

Why no fat added? It's delicious and helps mitigate the harmful effects of starch.
Vegetables have a positive effect on my cognitive function and despite their very low caloric density seem to provide a lot of energy (Butyrate perhaps?). For me it's about finding balance; consuming enough for their benefits without inducing compromised digestion.Today I was feeling pretty sluggish, for a reason I couldn't quite pin point. I've been struggling with milk on/off for a while. Sometimes I can drink it and feel very good from it, other time's it makes me feel very nauseous and out of it. I began thinking from an evolutionary pre-agricultural standpoint how we would have had to consume large amounts of vegetables in order to have adequate calcium intake for a healthy metabolism.
So I decided to experiment with lots of different raw leaves. I tried raw lettuce, which was ok. Raw kale and raw turnip greens were absolutely positively disgusting. I had a visceral feeling of disgust eating them. I promptly threw them out to the rabbits.
I then ate a handful of raw spinach, and what I can only describe as an immense feeling of good taste, nourishment, and sense of well-being. I proceeded to eat much more, and I feel a million times better. I will continue to experiment with eating lots of raw spinach, on top of a normal peaty diet, for I think it does me good. I think it makes complete sense to find a leaf that agrees with you, and to include ample amounts of it in the diet. If calcium is as important as Peat says, either every single pre-agro man was hypothyroid or leaves are good for us :)
