Notes 
1. Use (a), (b), (c) and (d) at all meals daily, repeated. Only (d) changes each day and only (c) changes during the evening meal each day.

2. The foods are eaten according to proper sequence for best food combining and maximum digestion and assimilation.

3. You may omit any meal if not hungry or if you prefer a 2-meal a day plan. Each meal is complete in all aspects, as well as in complete protein.

4. If you wish, you may fast one day a week on distilled water or have juices alone (as above vegetable juices).

5. The vegetable juices are used to increase mineral content of the diet. The blended salad increases the absorption of minerals, vitamins, and so on four times as compared to eating tossed salads.

6. You may add cooked vegetable broths without eating the cooked vegetables, once or twice a day to increase additional mineral elements without going off the raw food diet biochemically (used in other raw food systems -- i.e., Joe Alexander and European juicing institutions).

7. If desired, you may boil water, shut off the heat, and then put in corn-on-the-cob or soaked mung beans or soaked grains, eggs, or fish for a few minutes during cold weather without compromising the value, benefit, and integrity of the raw diet.

8. Add 1 tsp. to 1 tbs. of kelp powder or seaplants to one daily salad for trace elements.

9. Add 1 tbs. of freshly ground whole flaxseed to 1 or 2 meals daily. They may be ground in the blended salad. Flaxseed's enormous mineral content (7-10 times that of grains) greatly enhances any diet.
