Acid & Basic Vegetab les.

Vegetables contain carbohydrate, fibre (indigestible residue) vitamins & minerals. Vegetables are usually not a significant source of protein. Proteins in vegetables are easier to absorb from cooked food. When eaten raw or taken as a juice the body is able to absorb the maximum amount of the vitamins from the vegetable. Cooking helps to make vegetables more digestible & reduces their fibre and vitamin content. The fibre is converted into carbohydrate which increases the available absorbable calories. Some vitamins are destroyed by heating. Some of the minerals escape into water when vegetables are boiled. Each vegetable contains different vitamins & minerals so eating a range of raw & cooked vegetables allows the body to choose those vitamins and minerals which it needs and so obtain more balanced nutrition. Most vegetables are sattvic in nature ( they help to clear the mind, make it peaceful and to direct the mind towards good & god). It is good for your health to eat some raw and some cooked vegetables everyday. Vegetables help clean the bowels & prevent constipation. Preserved, canned and pickled vegetables are all acid. Vegetable juices like carrot, beetroot, tomato etc can help heal cancer as they contain large quantities of concentrated anti-oxidants. Foods Sulpher rich amino acids

help the body regulate immunity, and prevent infections and cancer.
