If you want to get the most health bang for your buck, check out this list of the top vegetables you should be eating more of, or making your juice from:

  • Asparagus
  • Chicory
  • Dandelion greens
  • Chinese cabbage
  • Zucchini (non-GMO)
  • Celery
  • Fennel
  • Chives (the green part of green onions)
  • Peppers (Green, red, yellow, or hot)
  • Turnips
  • Avocado
  • Romaine or red leaf lettuce
  • Cauliflower
  • Cucumbers
  • Collard greens
  • Mustard greens
  • Onions
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Endive
  • Beet greens (again, non GMO beets)
  • Bok Choy
  • Parsley

You can begin by eating about 1/3 of your food as raw vegetables (or lightly steamed). Keep adding more raw vegetables to your diet, as much as your digestive system will allow. If you find you need to juice or steam most of your vegetables, don’t feel bad. Any vegetable is better than no vegetable or eating a diet full of processed foods, junk foods, sugar, and fast food.

Start slowly and give your body time to adjust. Before you know it, you will start to have more energy, have increased feelings of health and well-being, and one day you will notice how great your skin looks. When the compliments about how good you look and people start asking you what you are doing differently- your hair? Your makeup? Or when friends start asking you if you had a facelift, then you will know that eating a raw vegan diet really is the true fountain of youth.
