Overdoing the salads?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I eat a big ass salad almost every day with the base being baby spring mix (kale, spinach, arugula, and more)

and generally top it off with mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, parsley, onions, walnuts, pine nuts, sliced almonds, and some form of protein: turkey, tuna, salmon, chicken, etc.

sometimes, I eat two big ass salads a day.

can you over-do raw food?

I mean sometimes I will cook two eggs with peppers, garlic, mushrooms, and onions and use that to top the salad.

I usually use some EVOO and a lemon wedge with some salt as the dressing.

I skip breakfast, the salad is my "break-fast" really. I do a daily IF just because I have more time in the evening to prepare a nice paleo meal and enjoy it.

Raw Paleo is perfectly doable. Just make sure you're getting adequate protein.

Sounds good to me. I eat raw veggies like broccoli at practically every meal. I find that cooked vegetables not always but sometimes make me bloated. For some, it is the other way around. They have digestive problems from raw veggies. If you aren't having any negative affects such as bloating or digestive discomfort, go for it!

Yes and no. For a perfectly healthy individual I don't think you can overdo salads. For a person with stomach, gut or kidney problems - it could be. Fiber, oxalates, FODMAPs, nightshades. But you would have noticed it by now.

Honestly, if I were healthy enough - I would eat what you are eating. By the way, what do you eat for breakfast? Our of curiosity only, really - since your meal plan seems so healthy and solid.
