Vegetables

Make them the majority of your diet!

Q. Does it matter if the vegetables I eat on the Diet are always fresh, or can I also eat canned and frozen vegetables?
A. You may eat fresh (usually tastiest)...or frozen vegetables, hot or cold, raw or cooked, but be sure that [they] are packed with no sugar or fats or rich sauces added; check the ingredients on the label before buying
 
Prepare all salads without oil, mayonnaise or other rich dressings. Use only lemon and vinegar, or these Scarsdale dressings.

 
VEGETABLES NOT PERMITTED
avocado
corn
peas
potatoes
sweet potatoes/yams
lentils and any beans except green or waxed or soybeans (permitted in the Vegetarian diet)

Vegetables should make up the bulk of your diet, accompanied by protein. At the very least, you should be eating about two
cups of cooked vegetables and a huge raw salad every day.

Lettuce varieties generally have more nutrients the darker the green.

Tomatoes can be eaten fresh, stewed or broiled, in any variety available - Add some salt & basil to a roasting pan filled with grape & cherry tomatoes and fire them up until they split open for a delicious dish high in Vitamin C and Lycopene.
