Fermented Foods and SCD

The two raw fruits that are easier to digest are bananas and avocados.

Juicing is one way to get the advantage of raw foods.

Why does juicing permit you to tolerate a greater variety of vegetables and fruits?

Since all vegetables and fruits belong to the plant kingdom, their cells have a cell wall along with a plasma membrane. The cell wall is celluose and is much easier on most of us than the peels of fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, many people with digestive problems have difficulties tolerating the cellulose. There is no way except juicing that would allow you to eliminate the cell wall. Cooking is another method that helps us tolerate the cellulose; it softens the cell walls and makes them easier to digest.

If you have a mental problem with swallowing raw eggs, (they are almost tasteless and easy to swallow) blend with a little yogurt, apple sauce or even blended avocado, but ideally raw eggs should not be blended as the molecular structure is damaged. Inspect the egg, if it has been cracked do not use it, once broken into the cup or blender smell it, if it smells off do not use it.

Raw Eggs and Cholesterol

There is no danger from the cholesterol build up since 2/3 of cholesterol in the body is produced by the liver. The amount of cholesterol consumed in the diet does not relate to the amount of cholesterol deposited. Many studies have shown that the cholesterol in eggs does not raise cholesterol level in the body. Furthermore, eggs contain Lecithin, a valuable nutrient that helps the body to process fats and cholesterol.
