Thank you.

Few days back I tested mango, jackfruit and sapote with iodine. The colour has not changed. I took a slice of mango and observed for any reaction for three days and found nil. Today I just took a piece of sapote and is observing.

I will slowly increase the quantity and observe. If no reaction, can we consume it regularly.

Hello again Jay:

Eating the same food every day. Here's my opinion -- everything in moderation.

If it passes the iodine test and it can be eaten for three or four meals in a row then I think it has past great tests!

However a person could react for allergy or other sensitivity reasons, or a food's introduction in large quantities might create a rapid change in gut flora and hence a reaction that should not have been bad. Perhaps a slow introduction in quantities and frequency would be best. It's debatable.

Some foods have native bacteria and enzymes on them for the purpose of digesting the food and releasing energy to allow seeds to grow. There probably was great advantage in eating foods grown in one's own garden with just wiping the dirt off them; I did that. The dirt probably promoted good microbe tolerance teaching my immune system that they are friends and not foe.

But even if there is no obvious reaction to a food it is possible over time that it could cause slow, insidious and unnoticed gut damage long before you notice. Say you ate oats every morning and didn't know that it was creating low level inflammation in your gut on a daily basis. After twenty years you end up developing increasing food sensitivities, joint aches, head aches, etc. Perhaps that would never have happened if the oats were enjoyed only twice a week, giving the body a rest to heal.

I guess some foods can be eaten every day. Some are probably best to be occasional. Everything in moderation. Also variety is the spice of life. So keep adding to the diet! Your methods seems like it will be very successful.

Just my two cents!
Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for throwing some information.

Yes. I planned to introduce very slowly. I also planned to take the items, though passed iodine test not frequently.

To be frank, life is boring without any variety of food.

Hi Jay:

I wouldn't say that life is boring (AS keeps a person occupied in many ways) but I would agree that mealtimes are not appealing and so experimenting with herbs are essential and recipe sources like http://www.forestandfauna.com/

I like the idea of setting one day a week for eating a new recipe. You spend the prior days locating the ingredients and then make on the day. Variety will accumulate. If there are ingredients I can't eat then I substitute with something I can eat.

This pushes our creativity and often provides a nice surprise -- a reward for the need to plan and lack of spontaneity in eating.

Cheers!
Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for your suggestion.

You have reflected exactly same as I have been planning. Since, I have put up lot of efforts in NSD (10 months so far), I would not like take chance of taking too much of new additions.
