All foods contain lectins, but they are concentrated in seeds and nightshades. Some are more harmful than others, some are easier to destroy via cooking, soaking, sprouting and fermenting. And some are harder then others to bind up via food combinations.
 



to summarize briefly,
almost all staples(wheat,barley,rice), they say,contain lectin.so there's just one way out i suppose to eat it with things that undo it's negetive effect.
glyconutrients contain eight monosaccharides (that is, simple carbohydrates, or sugars)
here http://www.wellnessl...lyconutrients/#
if i ignore the poor review and stick to it optimistically , what i can figure out is fruits should do good.
why cant simple or refined sugar be any good?
 
as for mucilagenous foods,are jute leaves mucilagenous?
am not sure if its popular in the west or mid-east nations but south-east asians have them.they are slimy when cooked(sauteed).not sure.
any idea?

Are they slimy?
yes,a lil' slimy when cooked..but not as slimy as okra or cactus is.
there are few other leafy veggies which seem lil' slimy when sauteed.
We have something we call malabar or vining spinach. It has no relation to spinach and is a very pretty vine that likes the heat. Maybe you have that there.

Yes. Easy to grow and pretty, but you ave to collect the seeds or it will invade your garden. I already have it all over the place. Share some recipes. I've tried it a couple ways, like added to soups as a thickener, but I don't really like it.

One of the first things I discovered that helped me fight my persistent acne was giving up diet sodas. I suspect the aspartame is the culprit there. I was getting huge cystic lesion that were painful, would appear to begin to go away and then flare up again. From what I've read aspartame acts as an excitotoxin in the body, increasing inflammation. After about 2 days without it, my skin was noticeably clearer. My experience has been that if inflammation is food related, then it doesn't take very long to see improvement. I've always noticed improvement within the first week of eliminating a problem food. My son is the same way.

dude you say you have constant stomach aches and bowel issues - sounds like your body is too acidic. this can happen on vegan diets pretty easily because many fruits are acidic.

 

i also have a vegan diet.

 

breakfast:

spinach paste (basically steamed spinach cooked with olive oil, onions, peppers and vegetable stock)

slice of tofu, gluten free slice of bread with humous, steamed broccoli

 

lunch:

rice with vegetable curry (beans, peas, sweetcorn, chickpeas, carrots etc)

 

alternative lunch:

gluten free rice noodles with stir fry vegetables

 

snack:

banana, nuts (usually macadamia), sultanas, peanut butter on gluten free toast

 

dinner:

baked sweet potato with soy spread, tofu slice, humous

 

 

bit of effort but i only cook once or twice a week and then stuff the fridge with food.

it's kept my ph more alkaline - my derm told me once that you should be alkaline on the inside (no inflammation) and acidic on the skin surface (to kill germs).

 

i would get acne and psoriasis back when i had a mostly acidic diet, not eating on a regular basis led to stomach problems and ulcers because my stomach was basically eating itself.
