NO animal in nature cooks there food and every species has a species specific diet, and humans are not an exception. We have just evolved so far past our instincts to modern life we have forgotten how to eat instinctively. We consume “foods” that are unnatural and denatured because we have seasoning, salt, ovens and an addictive tastes which stops our instincts for health and survival now. We have trained our brains to want the addictive foods over our natural foods. We feed our parasites over feeding our cells.
We are slowly killing ourselves with what we eat and asking why are we so sick, tired and not healing?
So let’s break it down….
GRAINS: they are enzyme inhibitors, high in phytic acids, leave a lot of metabolic residues and mucus in the the body, and have anti nutrients, for a reason, because there not designed for the human body to digest, absorb, utilize, and eliminate. Birds eat grains and they also eat rocks and pebbles to help grind them for digestion. To make these palatable you must cook them which changes the chemical compound making them a toxin on the body and addictive. GRAINS ARE NOT OUR OPTIMUM FOOD…
STARCHES: there high in complex carbohydrates which is too much sugar for the body to metabolize and create lots of fermentation and fungal overgrowths. Starches also leave behind a lot of glue like paste that clogs up the villi in the small bowel, and block absorption of nutrients SIBO. To make these palatable you must cook them which changes the chemical compound making them a toxin on the body and addictive. STARCHES ARE NOT OUR OPTIMUM FOOD…
MEAT: it’s dead tissue that leaves behind acid ash that destroys the colon, and creates prolapsed bowels, cancer, putrefies and leaves behind worms and parasites, it has too large of protein molecules for the kidneys to handle, and can deteriorate your bones, and send you into dialysis fast if abused. Meat feeds parasites not your cells. To make this palatable you must cook it which changes the chemical compound making flash a toxin on the body and addictive due to the oils, salts and seasoning used to disguise the taste of raw rotting flesh. GROSS!
MEAT IS NOT OUR OPTIMUM FOOD…
ANIMALS MILK: this is highly mucus forming, and it’s designed for a baby calf too grow from 50 pounds to 300 pounds in 3 weeks, it’s lactose is designed for infants that have lactase to brake it down, and properly digest it in the early development and growing stage. There is a reason we loose the enzyme lactase after we are weened of our mothers milk, it’s because we no longer have an essential need for this food. Milk contains a chemical called Queso-morphine that makes it just as addicting as heroin and can be physically addicting when coming off it. The pus in milk leaves behind so much sewage waste and clogs up the endo cells that create diabetes and can cause Heart Disease. The carcinogens in animal products or just as bad as smoking cigarettes maybe worse new studies have found. High meat and dairy diets causes diabetes and heart conditions and backs up your lymphatic system. DAIRY IS NOT OUR OPTIMUM FOOD…
EGGS: are a by-product of a chicken designed to become a baby chicken. They are high in hormones for that reason that effect our hormones. Making eggs very harmful for fertility. Egg yolk increases bad cholesterol (LDL). Raw egg yolk does not raise cholesterol level as much as cooked ones but cooking changes the chemical compound of the nutrients leaving them a high histamine food that causes allergies. This is because cooked egg yolk has oxidized cholesterol due to heat. However, uncooked egg has high risk of salmonella contamination. At least 4 types of proteins in egg whites block digestive enzyme actions which why you should never eat raw egg whites. At least 3 types of proteins bind tightly to vitamins, which prevents them from being useful. One protein does the same for iron absorption too. Cooking denatures these proteins so they no longer have the same chemical effects but become very mucus forming and toxic on the body. EGGS ARE NOT OUR OPTIMUM FOOD…
RAW TOUGH VEGETABLES: herbivores have multiple stomachs for a reason, because veggies like grasses, tough dark leaves and tubulars contain a tough fiber called cellulose that can only be digested from true herbivores. There is a reason we have to juice and steam certain vegetables and leaves, because they are very difficult to digest for the human species. TUBULES AND TOUGH VEGETABLES ARE NOT OUR OPTIMUM FOOD…
NUTS AND LEGUMES: nuts have a hard shell for a reason they are protected by harsh environments so the plant can be reproduced, and are designed for squirrels and rodents that have the claws, and teeth structure to open the shell much quicker, to get sustain themselves efficiently to meet there needs, they also burry them to start the fermentation process to aid digestion (so if you germinate and sprout these they can be digested in small amounts). Humans would struggle to get there calories form nuts quick enough to sustain them without the balance of macro nutrients going off balance ie too high in fats and protein. Legumes in there raw state are inedible so need to be cooked or at best germinated to make them edible. NUTS AND LEGUMES ARE NOT OUR OPTIMUM FOOD…
FRUIT: so it leaves humans in a natural environment designed with hands to pick, peel, and eat a food source straight from the plant or trees without having to do anything too it….that is easily digestible, detoxifying, powerful and packed with minerals, proteins, fats, carbohydrates and enzymes a complete whole food….FRUITS, BERRIES, MELONS, TENDER LEAFY GREENS AND SOFT TENDER YOUNG VEGETABLES ARE OUR OPTIMUM FOOD…! With some small amounts of germinated, sprouted seeds and legumes and occasionally nuts if your body digests them.
You are a FRUIGIVORS by design who may have eaten insects and the odd other foods like seeds and nuts!!! But let’s remove the insects and just thrive off fruit…🍋🍍🍇🍉 and greens 🌱
Returning too this lifestyle now in our toxic world…will allow you to heal all you face and thrive!

Mucusless Diet Food List from Arnold Ehret of the most frequently eaten foods that cause mucus.
These are guidelines and practices that have proven to work the best when trying to transition to a raw mucusless diet. The Transition Diet is the systematic approach developed by Arnold Ehret to safely evolve one’s eating habits away from mucus-forming foods toward a mucusless diet. Keep in mind that this is a personal list that is based upon his own experiences and not totally aligned to a Natural Hygienist approach to Nutrition but I found it helpful with my youngest who was very full of mucus. Ultimately, each person will need to find transitional food items that work best for them based on their past eating habits, physiological type, levels of mucus/pus addiction, latent/chronic illness, etc.
In the following Mucusless Diet Foods List they explore the most frequently used mucusless (mucus-free) food items, and then look at some mucuslean options.
ACID-BINDING, NON-MUCUS-FORMING, OR MUCUSLESS (MUCUS-FREE) FOODS RIPE FRUITS (MUCUSLESS) – ⭐️ The most detoxifying and pulling for a fast detox

MUCUSLEAN (MODERATELY MUCUS-FORMING)
Below are foods that are mucus-forming, but I’ve found to be useful during the “transition diet.” When the following items are added to a meal, Arnold Ehret called the meal “mucuslean.”
Mucuslean: refers to the period of dietary transition in the Mucusless Diet where mucus-forming foods are used along with mucusless ones. Mucuslean menus are generally less harmful than standard mucus-forming eating habits by non-practitioner, and are an important part of the overall transition and systematic healing methods employed in the Mucusless Diet Healing System.
In the Muculess Diet Healing System, Arnold Ehret teaches how best to eat mucuslean items so that they do the least amount of damage and leave behind the least amount of waste. Most items, except nuts, should always be eating with a raw “combination salad” to help with digestion and elimination. See the Mucusless Diet for more on how to combine and eat mucuslean options properly.
STARCHY OR FATTY VEGETABLES AND FRUITS (SLIGHTLY MUCUS-FORMING)
Carrots and Beets (Raw; some people view carrots as mucus-forming. They have a little bit of starch content, but mostly eliminate well and function reletively mucusless in the body. Although I don’t juice them as much as I did in the past, they are fine to chop up and add to a salad). Sweet potatoes, quinoa and millet are the best cooked starch as they are low in sugar.
*I advise against eating avocados because they are ‘fatty’ and mucus-forming. However, I did use them to make sauces during the earlier parts of my transition and still eat them two or three times a year (when you can eat certain mucuslean item only a few times per year, you know that you are advancing along with the Mucusless Diet).
BEANS (MODERATELY MUCUS-FORMING)
Beans (Black Beans, Black-eyed peas Kidney Beans, Lima Beans, Navy Beans, Pinto Beans, etc.; Beans are my most steadfast mucuslean item. They are starchy, heavy, addictive, and mucus-forming, but I’ve found that they eliminate well if combined properly with raw salads and steamed vegetables. But, when it is time to be mucusless or fast, steer clear of them).
NUTS AND SEEDS (MILDLY MUCUS-FORMING)
Nuts (Cashews, Almonds, Brazil Nuts, Peanuts, Pecans, Walnuts, etc.; I’ve always been very good about combining nuts with raisins and/or figs to aid elimination. Also, I learned early on to never eat nuts with juicy fruits. I ate a lot of nuts during the first couple years of my transition, and seem to eat them less and less every year. I might eat nuts three of four times a year now)
SEASONINGS (POTENTIALLY ACID-FORMING)
Some seasonings are acid-forming, it is okay to use many of your favorite condiments during the transition.
PROCESSED FOODS, CONFECTIONERIES, FERMENTED, OR DISTILLED DRINKS (ACID/PUS/MUCUS-FORMING)
Overall, It is advised to stay away from most processed foods, non-vegan sweets, and fermented foods and beverages.
VEGETARIAN/VEGAN PROCESSED FOODS (MODERATELY MUCUS FORMING OR POTENTIAL ACID-FORMING)
Chips/crisps (corn, potato, plantain) stay away from them if you can.
Hummus (processed cooked chickpeas with oil)
Soy Butter have a very high oil content and soy lecithin, which really should be avoided altogether.
Pasteurized 100% Fruit Juices (potentially acid-forming)
Plant-based butters (peanut, almond and cashew; something I only used for a couple years. As I became clean, nut butters started to really irritate my system).
Texturized Vegetable Protein (‘mock’ meats including soy, etc should be avoided as they are dead foods.
Vegan Baked Goods and Confections and raw treats. The Mucusless Diet is not about forcing yourself not to eat mucus, but transitioning away from it so that you can no longer crave or tolerate it.
Natural veggie patties (periodically you can find some veggie patties that are relatively ‘clean’ and will help you overcome bad cravings. They are much better to eat then going back to fast foods when the going gets tough. Just be sure to look at the ingredients on the label to make sure they did not sneak egg or dairy into it.
Canned/Jars or Tomoto Sauce (I would sometimes combined canned tomato sauce with freshly cooked tomotos, etc., to make a sauce to put over vegetables/salad. Avoid sauces that contain sugar or corn-syrup. If you are strongly against all packaged foods, simply stay away from it).
Vinegar Free Store-bought salad dressing (Obviously, it is best to make your own raw dressings, but there are a couple vinegar free dressings that Mucusless Diet practitioners have found and like to use over salads. Ehret strongly advises against using items that contain vinegar. Lemon juice is a much better alternative).
*My suggestion would be to use this to transition you to a high fruit raw living foods lifestyle. I found this helpful in steering the foods my highly mucus inflamed child eat to cleaner foods for his body. He loved nuts, avocados and humous, starches and all the things causing more mucus too form before I had chance to get it out…Hannah x
