THE RED BLOOD OF ANIMALS.  CEREALS:  The hulls and outer, dark layers of grains and rice.  VEGETABLES:  Lettuce, spinach, cabbage, green peppers, watercress, celery, onions, asparagus, cauliflower, tomatoes, string-beans, fresh peas, parsley, cucumbers, radishes, savoy, horseradish, dandelion, beets, carrots, turnips, eggplant, kohlrabi, oysterplant, artichokes, leek, rosekale (Brussels sprouts), parsnips, pumpkins, squashes, sorghum.  FRUITS:  Apples, pears, peaches, oranges, lemons, grapefruit, plums, prunes, apricots, cherries, olives.  BERRIES:  Strawberries, huckleberries, cranb \erries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, gooseberries, currants.  DAIRY PRODUCTS:  Milk, buttermilk, skimmed milk.  NUTS:  Cocoanuts.

In the accompanying table entitled “Dietics In A Nutshell” we have divided all food materials into five groups: 

GROUP: 

(Carbohydrates):  Starches. (Carbohydrates):  Dextrins and sugars.  (Hydrocarbons):  Fats and oils. (Proteids):  white of egg, lean meat, the gluten of grains and pulses, the proteins of nuts and milk.  (Organic Minerals):  Iron, sodium calcium, potassium, magnesium, silicon.  These are contained in largest amounts in the juicy fruits and the leafy, juicy vegetables.

As a general rule, let one-half of your food consist of Group V and the other half of a mixture of the first four groups.

If you wish to follow a pure food diet, exclude meat, fish, fowl, meat soups and sauces and all other foods prepared from the dead animal carcass.

This is brief and comprehensive.  When in doubt, consult this rule.

Also do not use coffee, tea, alcoholic beverages, tobacco or stimulants of any kind.

Good foods are: 

Dairy Products:  milk, buttermilk, skimmed milk, cream, butter, fresh cottage cheese. fermented cheeses, as American, Swiss, Holland and DeBrie, should be used sparingly.  The stronger cheeses like Camembert and Roquefort should not be used at all

Eggs:  Raw, soft-boiled or poached, not fried or hard-boiled.  Eggs should be used sparingly.  Two eggs three times a week or on an average one egg a day, is sufficient.

White of egg is much easier to digest than the yolk, therefore the whites only should be used in cases of very weak digestion.  Beaten up with orange juice, they are both palatable and wholesome; or they may be beaten very stiff and served cold with a sauce of prune juice or other cooked fruit juices.  This makes a delicious and very nutritive dish.
