Hi Rose,

Chinese cabbage is great raw, but there is such a wide
variety of cabbages and some are nicer raw than

If you read The 80/10/10 Diet, Dr D seems to indicate
that cruciferous veg are ok for human consumption, but
naturally not as attractive to us as the softer greens
- so we would tend to consume smaller quantities.

I am in UK, we still get good cucumber, cabbage and
celery in Winter. I find iceberg lettuce is still
good too.

I notice your query does not mention reducing greens,
you are thinking of reducing the "vegetable" fruits.
Personally I would not consider having tomatoes again
until around June; they just won't ripen. I agree,
peppers and even courgette (zucchini) go off too.

Again, if you read the book, I think you will find it
is not important that we consume the fruit veg (ie
those with seeds); they are pleasant at times but not
essential. It's leafy greens that are important, and
you indicate you plan to continue those daily.

So I think no problems, if you do that :)
