I take it by your name you are a salesperson of the Vitamix machine. Therefor you are promoting all of its supposed benefits. No one method of preparation can possibly be the one and only approved method.

I already gave you the reasons. I also said salads are great. I rarely cook lettuce, but I have grilled halved heads of romaine and it's pretty good

My point is that your statement that all vegetables are better raw is incorrect.

You're not paying attention to what I said. But that's not surprising since you're apparently only here to try to sell the vitamix theories.

Thank you.
My health issues have nothing to do with eating all vegetation raw. I eat raw tomatoes, cucumbers and even baby spinach leaves. And as much as I love raw carrots, celery, and other salad foods, I will cook them in soups and stews and get the nutrition from them in the broth.

Addie, I'm a little confused. I intended to reply to the vitamix person and I'm not sure if you were responding to that person or me.

I know you can't eat many raw veggies for medical reasons; same with me. My point to the vitamix seller is still that not all veggies are best eaten raw, even for the majority of the population.

And vitamix seller - I am not a chef. The title you see comes from me being a long-time member of this forum.

I was thanking you for your response to Vitamix. The rest of my response was in general to the forum. But mostly to Vitamix again. I guess I was intending to agree with what you had been saying all along. That there are more ways than eating raw roughage to get your nutrition. If there is a side, Go GG! You can present an argument better than me.
