How many vegetables do you eat?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I seem to get bloated when I eat lot of vegetables (steamed, or raw!), such as broccoli, brussell sprouts or cauliflower.

Which vegetables do you eat?

I've been paleo (momstly fruit free also) for 4 months, and gluten free for about 1.5 years.

Any ideas?

Raw sauerkraut (in the refrigerated section) and some Kombucha are my favorites for fermented foods. I can't speak as much to Kimchi since I don't really eat it (probably should though)

It's taking me a long time in general to get on the right track. I've had so many issues!

Grass fed beef. I'm eating about 1 cup at a time. I'm (...sorry for the disgustingness!) defecating whole green beans so something isn't right... Even a small strawberry. It's like I'm not breaking down plant matter. I stay strict to the paleo diet. I have celiac's disease- so ABSOLUTELY no cheating for me. I'm thinking about trying Standard Process digestive enzymes (multizyme) and maybe trying some of the fermented food?

fat and protein slow passage through digestive system and increase absorbability of fat soluble vitamins.

Why would fat and/or protien make them more digestable or affect digestion at all?

Look into the fodmaps diet. You're naming fodmap diet no-no foods causing your bloating, and I used to be like that too. Garlic and onions are big no-nos for me. My weekly grocery veggie shopping list usually includes: kale, swiss chard, spinach, carrots, zucchini, and radishes or turnips. I cook all my veggies thoroughly by braising in bone broth so I can get the delicious meaty flavor of stir frying into my boiled veggies :)

Vegetable fiber/cellulose can be tough for some people.

I like to cook my veggies (mostly broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, bok choi, cauliflower) in butter. I believe that eating veggies with fat makes them more digestible. And, the cooking breaks down the cellulose. Fried veggies are certainly tastier to me than just steamed. If you eat veggies with meat you should be getting the digestion benefit as well.

I love vegetables. Probably at least 5 servings a day. I like all kinds of lettuces (except iceberg and romaine) with tomato, cucumbers, avocados, black olives. Zucchini and yellow squash sauteed in butter, bacon fat, or roasted. Chard, kale, and collards are all great. Broccoli just about any way possible. Hot peppers fresh or fermented, in sauces or vinegars make everything better. I like cabbage only as sauerkraut and cauliflower only spicy fermented. I like the taste of onion but not the texture, so I work around that. I hate bell/sweet peppers and asparagus.

I would only eat green beans until I was in my twenties, and then only broccoli for a few years after that. I'm adventurous with veggies now. I'm thinking of trying a hard squash soon, and maaaaaybe I'll try brussels sprouts again.

About 3-5 servings a day (1 carrot counts as 2 servings). I like mine lacto-fermented. I like carrot, broccoli, onions, celery, garlic, and cabbbage....a nice salad a couple times a week.

It's strange that when I was doing VLC, I stuck to eating only asparagus, broccoli, kale, and the like; but when my "low-carb flu" never went away, I developed an aversion to most fibrous green vegetables. I now find myself eating mostly potatoes (both white and sweet), and sometimes onions, mushrooms, zucchini and bell peppers. I will try to sneak in some spinach in an omelet or something but other than that, I really don't have any desire to eat dark leafy greens.

I eat mostly spinach(raw) and broccoli(steamed). Don't understand the bloating, what else do you eat with it? What quantities of the veggies are you eating?
