Question: How can I cook more vegetarian when I can not eat most vegetables?

question by Jason : How can I cook more vegetarian when I can not eat most vegetables
I do not like a lot of vegetables. I think I have some kind of allergy to them or something. I actually get physically sick and I tend to throw up when if I eat them.I really, really can not eat onions, broccoli, mushrooms, lettuce, leeks, asparagus, cabbage, brussel sprouts, artichokes, and spinach.The only vegetables I can really digest or consume without throwing up are carrots, peas, green beans, corn, hot peppers, and potatoes.

    then dont be vegetarian.
    you dont have enough fibrous and protein veggies.
    you need more dark green veggies.

    Cook anything you want. As long as it’s not meat, you’ll be cooking vegetarian. And as long as you cook what you can eat, you’ll be able to eat this vegatarian fare. Vegetarian doesn’t mean vegetable eater. It means you don’t eat meat!

    Sounds like you are sensitive to salicylates and amines, which are present in many veggies and fruits. I have the same problem, as well as being allergic to wheat, soy and corn-most of which make up common vegetarian diets. I have managed to stay vegetarian though for many years. I eat alot of alternative grains, such as buckwheat, quinoa and oats (I grind them into flour and bake things such as breads, cakes, cookies, pies, etc). You could also be reacting to pesticides if you are using non organic fruits and veggies. The pesticides most commonly used on non organics contain very high concentrations of MSG and other chemicals you may be sensitive to. Have you tried strictly organic produce? It might make the world of difference to you. In any case, I recommend that you get allergy testing done, or at least start keeping a food journal. Keep in mind that some reactions don’t show up for several days after eating the offending food. Feel free to email me if you need more info. Its hard, but can be done if you set your mind to it. Hang in there!
