Food Combinations and Methods of Cooking free pdf Excerpt from Food Combinations and Methods of Cooking It seems that a condition of general lowered vitality results from mineral starvation. If we were to eat bread made from whole cereals, eat an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables, and see that valuable elements are not removed from our vegetables in the cooking, and be careful not to eat too much confectionery and sweetened foods, we should not suffer from mineral starvation. Making candy and sweetened foods too large a part of the diet is an increasingly common dietetic error, which deprives the body of needed elements. If we were to get our sugar by eating sweet fruits, chewing sugar cane, drinking maple sap, and eating beets, we should not eat too much sugar, nor deprive ourselves of needed elements that naturally grow with sugar. A young man who has lived where sugar cane grows and where sugar and molasses are made, tells me that puny babies are sometimes allowed to drink all the sugar cane juice they want, and that they soon become plump and healthy. This result is, no doubt, not only on account of the sugar taken, which is a fattening food, but on account of the needed mineral elements that are supplied by the sugar cane juice. Now perhaps we ought to give a list of the mineral elements needed by the body, and tell what foods supply them and for what the body needs them. Mineral Elements Iron - spinach, watercress, egg yolk, legumes, strawberries Phosphorus - whole cereals, legumes, milk, egg yolk Potassium - potato, turnip, parsnip, cabbage, plums, cherries Calcium - milk, egg, whole cereals, nuts, legumes, celery, cabbage, citrous fruits Magnesium - whole cereals, spinach, legumes, apples, cherries Sodium - salt, spinach, asparagus, cauliflower, apples, strawberries Chlorine - salt, spinach, cabbage, cauliflower, turnip Sulphur - egg yolk, spinach, cauliflower, cabbage Fluorine - vegetables Silica - oats, barley, onion, cabbage Iron is necessary to make red blood. Red blood is impossible without it. Spinach contains more iron than does any other food. Milk is deficient in iron- so if milk makes a large part of the diet, care should be taken to include other foods that are rich in iron. Phosphorus is necessary for the building of bones, brain, and nerves. Thought would be impossible without phosphorus. The evidence of experiments goes to show that the disease beriberi results from living on foods from which the phosphorus has been removed, such as white rice and white bread. Phosphorus is perhaps best supplied by the bran of cereals. Calcium is necessary for building bones and teeth. The teeth of children fed largely on white bread, meat, cake, and candy, decay early, and such children are liable to contract bone diseases. Calcium is contained in considerable quantity in whole cereals, but not in sufficient amount to supply the needs of the system. Milk contains more calcium than does any other food. According to a statement made by Dr. Robert Hutchinson in his "Food and Dietetics," milk contains more lime than lime water. Nuts also contain an abundance of lime. It is said that peanuts contain too much lime. Therefore the lack of lime in cereals may be balanced by milk or nuts, just as milk and nuts balance cereals by supplying a large proportion of fat and protein, in which cereals are deficient. If the system lacks lime, the natural way to supply it is to drink milk rather than lime water, because the lime in lime water is not organized lime. If the person fears he will become too fat, skim milk may be used- and if even then there is fear of taking too much nourishment, whey may be drunk, because the whey contains lime. There are physicians who believe that tuberculosis is made possible because of a lack of lime in the diet. Professor Sherman of Columbia University expresses the opinion that half the people of the United States are suff.
