Issues with Cruciferous/Brassica vegetables
« on: July 08, 2015, 05:09:51 AM »
Good morning all - only 2 months in to this new way of eating - I realized I have big problems with Broccoli, Cauliflower, Brussels sprouts - I love these - and I think I was overdoing it with them - I was eating at least one of them with just about every meal - and I ended up in so much stomach pain - I started reading various posts and online sources and noted that some folks do have sensitivities to them and that they can be contra indicated for folks that are hypothyroid!  Backed off - as in I'm not eating them at all and I feel much better - I am now taking digestive enzymes as well as a probiotic by Jarrow - My stomach feels much better!  I do eat lots of eggs, beef, pork, fish, chicken, and I love lamb (have always been all about the fat!).  Any suggestions as to veggies I can eat (other than lettuce)?

Spinach, onions, and carrots would probably be okay.

Thanks!  I love spinach  - I'm going to try to slowly reintroduce the caul/broc/brussels - but one at a time and not every day - Still amazed at how well I sleep now!  I am enjoying this journey!
