How to Eat More Vegetables On the Kaufmann Diet

It seemed only natural to do a post regarding ways to eat more fruits and vegetables after my interviews with Supermodel Carol Alt, Joe Cross and Tommy Rosa.  We all, at some point end up changing our eating habits when our health starts to slip away.  In my case, I turned to the Kaufmann diet.

When model Carol Alt became ill during the height of her career, she turned to a mostly raw diet to regain her health.  Tommy Rosa on the other hand, was involved in a hit-and-run accident and had a near death experience.  During this time, he believes he went to heaven and met Jesus, who gave him health revelations to live by.  One of them was eating clean, vibrant foods found in nature.  And, In my video interview with Joe Cross from the movie Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, Joe explains how he juiced his way back to health after dealing with the side effects of a dreadful autoimmune disease.

If you have time to revisit those interviews above, they are enlightening and inspiring.  Carol is the reason I bought my first Vitamix, and because of Joe, juicing became a habit of mine.  My mentor Doug Kaufmann helped me realize my long list of health problems were from mold exposure.  Whatever the reason you are here, diet is a crucial part of recovering from health issues.  In the video below I will share how I squeeze in large quantifies of vegetables in my teenage son’s breakfast.  If you are looking for a way to eat more vegetables on the Kaufmann diet, watch my video below as I make my son and I our daily juice.

3 Appliances That Make It Easy To Eat More Fruits And Vegetables

Carol Alt suggests these 3 appliances if you want to give a raw diet a try or if you just want to get in more fruits and vegetables.  I completely agree and I would not be able to consume this much vegetables without the help of these great tools below!

  1. Blender– My husband bought me a Vitamix last year (no I did not get it sent to me for free.)  They are pricey, but let me tell you, it is worth every penny!  Recently in a podcast I was asked if my house was burning down what would I grab and my response was “my Vitamix.”  A Vitamix allows you to blend whole fruits and vegetables with the skin into a liquid that is not thick or gritty.  This option retains the fiber.  The powerful blade allows you to make smooth nut butters, as well as hot soups (I share a video below of my teenage son and I making broccoli and cheese soup).  You can also make “nice cream”.  I will be doing a video shortly on how to make this dairy free, healthy dessert.
  2. Juicer – I use the Nama cold press juicer.  This is the brand Joe Cross uses.
  3. Dehydrator – The sky is the limit of what you can make in a dehydrator.  There is anything from dried fruit, fruit roll ups, and Carol Alts favorite, cauliflower popcorn (which I made and loved it.)  It really does taste like popcorn.

VIDEO:  My teenage son’s breakfast – have your sound on as I share with you his frequent gas station trips for junk food.

The juice I make in my video would be considered Kaufmann 1 or Phase 1.  For more Kaufmann diet friendly recipes, see my recipe section.
