Vegetables

Vegetables are needed. Don’t try and skip out on them, especially because their natural fibers are necessary for your digestive system. Believe me, I didn’t have enough vegetables one day and my body reacted horribly. I had also had something I didn’t tolerate very well, but that’s beside the point.

A serving size of veggies is a 1/2 cup. Try and have three servings a day of veggies. I promise that you’ll feel better overall if you do, no matter how much you hate spinach, or carrots, or bok choy. You’ll get used to it, I promise you.

As a side note, cooked vegetables have a lower fructose content than raw, so if you find that you can’t have raw carrots, for example, try my carrot muffin recipe or steamed carrots and see if you tolerate them any better. Also, beans seem to be poorly tolerated in any more than small amounts, so try at your own risk.
