alternatives to veggies?

8/17 8:51:08

I have IBS, and incidentally it is triggered by most veggies and some fruits.  I've only had it a year and I am still discovering my triggers, but I'm having a real issue with what veggies I can eat. We're supposed to eat so many of them a day and with such a very limited selection of options out there (that I can tolerate) it's hard to get as many in me as they recommend (and getting boring and inconvenient always having to eat the same ones over and over - making variety for my kids but keeping my own diet the same....annoying).  What is worse is that I am very picky about my veggies and many of them even prior to this developing make me gag or outright vomit due to my disdain of their taste/texture, which limits what I can eat further still. I can eat beans, for example, but how can I work beans into a mid-day snack, evening snack or even a normal lunch?  Certainly not as easy as someone can work in carrots or lettuce, lol.  

My overall wonder is : is there any way to get the nutrition I need without consuming as many vegetables? any ideas for me at all? this really sucks....

veg that affect me that I know about are:
broccoli, cauliflower, turnip, lettuce, cabbage, leafy greens, carrots, sometimes tomato, celery

veg that I can eat and tolerate are basically just corn, and green beans, peppers and onion and garlic and once in a blue moon I can handle peas without throwing up

veg that makes me gag or worse:
peas, asparagus, kohlrabi, beats, leeks, those green ones that everyone puts in lasagna, basically most others that I haven't already mentioned.

I really don't know what to do with the small list of veggies I ahve. it was hard ENOUGH getting the right amount in me before I got IBS but now it's nearly impossible. help!

Hi Teg,

I'm sorry to hear you're having such a hard time with getting enough fruits and veggies in every day.

I would recommend looking into a fruit and veggie juice powder supplement. Basically, the fruits and veggies are juiced and dehydrated, removing the water and most of the sugar/fiber. What's left are the tens of thousands of phytonutrients and enzymes. Preferably, they should be cold processed so that the enzymes and nutrients are not damaged by any heat.

The fruit and veggie supplement I take and recommend is Juice Plus+ - it's 17 fresh, raw organic vine-ripened fruits and veggies dehyrated and it comes in capsules or soft chewables (gummies). You can learn more at www.JuiceTom.com

Also, the company has a special program for children. If an adult orders, they can attach 1 free children's order for up to 3 years for children age 4-18.

I hope that helps!

Wishing you wellness,
