I'm currently in the process of "repairing" my gut flora, following the directions of Dr. Ayers from Cooling Inflammation blog.
Beside pre/probiotics he also recommends eating small amounts of raw vegetables to increase gut flora diversity. Basically eating "muddy" vegetable because they contain bacteria that I presumably lack (heavy antibiotics use a year back).
The initial amount would be around 30g/ounce because I'm sure as hell not eating pounds of raw veggies. Any comments on the chosen ? Too much, too little, ....
I'm speculating that due to the fact that I only need their bacteria even a minuscule (half an ounce maybe) amount would be sufficient. Also it's probably more about the size of veggie surface then it is about it's mass.
My question is, which (I presume some are more poisonous then others) vegetables can be eaten raw and how to make that at least itsy bitsy tasty ?. Besides salads which I don't really like.
p.s. I realize that CIA and the vegetables are out there to kill me, therefore small amounts.
EDIT: Worry not, my paleo friends I has a garden ;)
