Of course, then I usually add some kale how’d. I get that Kayla here. Alright, then usually add some onions. Add some celery. Now you can add, as many or as little as you want to. I pretty much have an understanding of what I like and how I like it to taste. So you may want to tweak and play with this form in a little bit so that you can get it to the way that you, like it add some ginger. I, like a lotta ginger all right, then apples, I usually add a good bit of Apple, so break it up, so that either your nutribullet ninja or your blender in general is able to get to it then usually just squeeze in some life.

This will really help with the taste. I promise you so the last thing is you got to add water, don’t add any juice or anything like that. Stick to water, because we’re trying to make this sugar free. I know you saw that it’s okay, I makes mistakes. All right, then you just put in the nutribullet and away we go. That’s it so afterwards. Unscrew this give the support all right so bottoms up. Now, if you remember oh, I got me a monster tree.

I know very talked about this and I went on a detox diet. This was my king. Talk today, I did eat normal foods. I just ain’t better. I eat more salads, just like I could now, but what I included was this remedy here this, how it we significantly reduced weight.

Kale: Superfood or super bad for you? | Dr. Gundry Clips

Sucking you think kale is unhealthy for us to eat, but it might be a bit of an overstatement. But I like you, I really care about the microbiome and I spent 15 years of my life on antibiotics for chronic sinus infections. So I had a truly rack to gut that is now recovered and along the way I got to be friends and I’m an investor.

An advisor in a company called biome that quantifies gut bacteria at a very detailed level, and their data set from tens of thousands of people shows that roughly a third of people don’t have bacteria that can breakdown oxalic, acid or oxalates. So what happens? Is this compound? That’s very high in kale. Oh, it goes into the blood. It meets, free, calcium there, an extra calcium. As you know, ages, you pretty quickly.

You should not have extra calcium floating around your blood, but you probably do and when it hits the calcium, it forms micro crystals that then stick in your joints and cause pain. It’s associated with brain inflammation, potentially with autism and the worst condition of all that it’s associated with is called vulvodynia, which is extremely a painful vulva in women to the point they can’t even wear underwear.

I mean it look, really bad pain and it’s caused by these micro crystals. So if you’re sitting there eating one of these, you know raw kale salads once or twice a day. It’s also associated with kidney stones that come from not uric acid, but oxalic acid. The producer on the movie that I filmed about toxic mold called moldy movie it by the way it’s free, moldy movie com. This is kind of my giving back because mold jacked up my hull so much like here’s.

What it’s doing and the producer was eating. Two kale salads a day. She gets kidney stones in the middle of the of the movie like. Well, that’s what happens so. I actually recommend on the bulletproof plug if you’re going to eat, kale forgotton, say cook it. It’s okay to cook it dump the water, we’re mostly the oxalic acid, is maybe add some baking soda or some calcium to precipitate the crystals, but rock hail my sheep.

I have a small farm, my sheep will spit out Rock ale. It’s really not good food. Well, I’ve actually seen a couple of women who have come to me for hypothyroidism and they basically were having a kale smoothie in the morning and kale salad for lunch and a kale salad for dinner, and it was actually suppressing their thyroid function. They didn’t have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, they thought they have, but we took their what we didn’t take it away from them, but we dramatically limited their kale and it solved the problem yeah.

If you have some kale once a week and you don’t wake up with joint pain. Great you know enjoy it, I would say: eat the Dino kale, that’s stuff, that isn’t all lacy. The lacy kale is particularly high in these compounds and there’s something else really scary about kale there’s a toxic metal called thallium. It’s called the poisoners poison. It disrupts potassium in ourselves, kale even organic kale bioaccumulates that stuff, like nothing else.

When we put, we took lead out of our gasoline, we put thallium in the gasoline instead, which is a thousand times more toxic than lead, which itself any amount of lead in. Your body increases your risk of cardiovascular disease dramatically. So now we’re eating a food that has oxalic acid and high thallium levels, which disrupts cellular metabolism and we’re thinking we’re making ourselves healthy.

So look if you love kale eat some kale, but you can also eat some french fries they’re, probably equivalent

5 Gundry-Approved Vegetarian Superfoods

Gundry, I’m a vegetarian. What can I eat? You know I hear it all the time. People assume that the plant paradox is not for them because they don’t eat meat. Now, here’s the thing. If you’ve read my book, you know that every recipe has a vegetarian or vegan friendly option. In fact, I eat mostly vegetarian diet myself, but I don’t fill up on grains and I don’t get my protein from soy. Instead, I rely on five vegetarian superfoods that are plant paradox approved and delicious.

The first one is an avocado and it’s one of my favorite foods. In fact, I eat an avocado just about every day. In fact, it’s the one fruit you don’t have to eat. In moderation, it’s got barely any sugar and the perfect blend of healthy fats and soluble fiber to keep your gut bugs happy and with almost as much protein as an egg avocados do a great job keeping you full. That’s why I tell my patients to start each day with a whole avocado.

Second, we’ve got leafy greens dark, leafy greens like spinach, kale and collard greens are among the healthiest foods on the planet and believe it or not. They’ve got plenty of protein think about it. Some of the biggest most muscular mammals on the planet – horses and gorillas, for example, eat vegetarian diets and they’re getting enough protein and nutrients to go about their days. That’s because they know they can get all the protein they need from Lees.

And so can you third mushrooms, they’re high in protein as far as vegetables are concerned, but that’s not the only reason they’re great for keeping your body fueled up you see. Mushrooms are heavy in fructooligosaccharides a form of indigestible sugar that your gut bugs love and there’s no better way to keep you full happy and comfortable and keeping your gut bugs happy. That’s part of the reason I love corn grumbles as a replacement for me.

They’re vegetarian made mostly of mushroom roots and have a great meaty texture up next nuts. Now not all nuts are created equal. In fact, some nuts aren’t nuts at all their seeds like cashews or legumes like peanuts, but walnuts, pecans, pistachios and macadamia. Nuts are all wonderful for you, they’re, packed with good fats or filling and are high in protein, and studies have even shown that people who eat nuts every day live longer healthier lives than those who don’t.

But what about almonds their skins contain lectins. So if you’re eating, blanch or marcona almonds, you’re fine, the plain old almonds should be avoided. Last but not least, beans. Yes, you heard me right beans, the doctor Gundry, don’t beans have lectins absolutely, but there’s a great way around that pressure cooking. It kills. Almost all the lectins and beans making them safer to eat and don’t worry modern pressure cookers aren’t the scary spring loaded, ready to blow contraptions of the past, they’re safe and easy to use, and you only hit one button.

But if you want even easier shop for eating brand, can beans they’re, already pressure cooked to minimize lectins and they come in a bpa-free, can just remember pressure cooking doesn’t get rid of all electrons in your food, so save beans, even pressure cook beans for special occasions And always remember: you can get plenty of protein from plants, especially things like greens, cruciferous, vegetables, roots and tubers.

So if you’re a vegetarian who is curious about the plant paradox or if you’re trying to eat less meat, we all should keep these five super foods in mind. Your gut and your body will thank you.

Want to shield your gut from lectin damage? Eat this, not that

They always say the same thing. Why can’t I eat my favorite food, some of the most common ones, peanut, butter, diet, soda rice and pasta, yogurt and beans. If you’re a fan of any of these, I’ve got some good news, they’re easy to swap out, and I’ve got some substitutions, they’re, absolutely delicious. First peanut butter, you may as well call it lectin butter because it’s made with one of the worst ingredients for your health, but these days there are plenty of healthy lectin, free alternatives on grocery store shelves.

Things like almond butter, walnut butter, hazelnut butter tahini, which is basically sesame seed butter and my favorite pistachio butter just make sure to avoid cashew or sunflower seed butter they’re, both pretty common, and if you want almond or walnut butter to taste a little peanut ear. I’ve got a trick whisk in a couple of drops of coconut aminos to boost the savory flavor. Now, let’s talk about diet soda at first.

This was a hard one for me, I was a huge diet. Coke addict! Now, I’m not going to tell you how terrible diet soda is for your health at this point you better already know, but if you want a refresher, there are a couple of good articles right here on my youtube blog, maybe you saw the one where I share. My favorite soda hack, my balsamic, vinegar, soda just in case I put a link to it on the description below it’s a great alternative, but it’s not the only one, if you’re dying for something fruity make an infused water or an infused sparkling water.

If you find yourself craving bubbles, I use lemon and orange slices and even some fresh berries and for a really special treat. You can look for sodas that are sweetened only with stevia. Now they shouldn’t be an everyday thing, but if you’ve got a craving, you just can’t be and you’ve tried everything else. It might help. Next up rice and pasta, good news, carb lovers: there are about a million substitutes for both rice and pasta, and some of the swaps are more flavorful than the originals.

I love Capello’s pasta made from almond flour and tapioca flour. You can find it in the gluten free frozen food, section of Whole Foods and other stores. Now you already know about one of my other favorites miracle noodles and good news. They make miracle rice too, and if you’re looking for ways to use them check out the recipes section and the plant paradox or the recipe articles here on my YouTube page, of course, not everyone loves miracle noodles as much as I do, but they’re not your only Option you can use millet or sorghum in place of rice or even cauliflower rice, which is hugely popular right now.

You can find it fresh or frozen in most major supermarkets even Costco, and you can also make noodles out of any vegetables by spiralizing them or cutting them in into thin strips, maybe you’ve heard of zucchini noodles, but of course they don’t fit in the plant. Paradox plan still the same idea works with beets, carrots, sweet potatoes, even daikon radish, and you can even find some noodle produce at health food stores.

These days, here’s some beet noodles. These are actually fantastic. Fourth yogurt, even Greek yogurt is off the plan. That’s because the cow’s milk yogurt sold in this country has casein a1 a protein that seriously damages your gut and for a lot of people. That’s a problem because it’s their go-to healthy breakfast item. If you’re one of those people who needs to have a yogurt for breakfast, what can you do? Go to the regular old yogurt section in your grocery store and look for goat’s milk, yogurt or sheep’s milk yogurt or, if you’re, in the mood for a vegan option? Almond or coconut yogurt they’re pretty widely available we’re just like regular yogurt and are delicious too okay.

Finally beans. I know we’ve discussed this one before, but it’s worth a reminder, especially for you vegetarians and vegans, who are used to getting your protein from beans. Beans are left and heavy, but it’s possible to reduce the lectins by pressure cooking. So if you’ve got a pressure cooker put it to use, if not look for Eden brand canned beans, they come in non BPA line, cans and they’re pressure-cooked ahead of time and if you’re, looking for a completely non bean alternative, look no further than pine nuts.

If you soak them in liquid, like water or even chicken stock, they get a texture similar to beans. In fact, pine nuts cooked into a traditional chili have almost the exact same texture as beans, and there you have it. Five of my favorite plant paradox friendly substitutions, but I want to know what you’re struggling with so do me a favor and leave a comment below and let me know if you’re having trouble finding a swap out for your favorite food, it could make it into my Next article, I’m dr.
