View Full Version : Any unsafe fruits or veggies?
07-24-2007, 01:17 PM
After reading the thread on Raw potatoes (which by the way I happen to like sometimes!) , I got to wondering if there are any fruits, nuts, berries, veggies, that should NOT be eaten raw and why.

Off hand I can't think of any except rhubarb leaves. Maybe others will know?
Be sure if you can't purchase organic to scrub your fruits and veggies WELL! Get the pesticides off!

dont eat too much spinach cuz the oxalic acid, make sure your tomatoes are vine ripened (again, oxalic acid) and organic if possible, same with bell peppers (the green ones are unripe and have lots of oxalic acid ... i think all these are in teh nightshade family. double check that but im prettty sure. also sprouted peanuts are kinda dangerous cuz of the aflotoxin (mold. wash frequently). somethin in alfalfa that is dangerous in super high quantities (i.e. rotate your sprouts), and dont have more than a few tablespoons of flaxsseed per day if you can help it. somthing about cyanide.
a few things personally that i cant really handle, which are ironically my vices (comfort foods), are nuts and cacao. the cacao makes me feel so crappy and just tweaked out from the caffeine, and nuts make me feel foggy and heavy.
