    Ani got a reaction from Dani Chris in Broccoli Sadness   
    I hear ya sista! This sounds crazy but broccoli actually makes me DEPRESSED! It's like a fog comes over me (within the hour) and it lasts for 24hrs. Full depression. It's so weird. And like when u go to the dentist and they numb your face it wears off in the same way down to the 24th hour. I've tested it many times out of disbelief am proven wrong every time. I avoid broccoli like the plague. I also get instant bloating, I used to live off meat and veg - mostly broccoli and could never understand what was upsetting me until I ate plain organic beef with nothing else on it and steamed broccoli and within 30mins I looked 3 months pregnant. Have since eliminated cauliflower and all the cabbages and am so much better. I have fructose malabsorption though and follow low FODMAPS. So no, you are not alone, and ppl might think I'm crazy but at least I'm not depressed anymore!!

    Hi Bicky145,
    I was diagnosed about 5 years ago so I've come a long way since then with what I can and can't tolerate and been on elimination diet after elimination diet but still find myself in denial about a lot of veggies. I just can't accept that such healthy foods can be bad for my system! Haha I mean they are just vegetables right? Although this is what I've found I DO tolerate:
    Almost all greens - spinach, bok choy, rocket, lettuces, silver beet, chard - jury is still deciding on kale though
    Carrots
    Tomatoes
    Cucumber
    Celery
    Avocado
    Green beans
    Turnip
    Swede
    Sweet potato
    Small amounts of garlic
    What I Do NOT
    Eggplant
    Onions
    Leeks
    Broccoli
    Cauliflower
    Green capsicum
    Artichoke
    And then the iffy ones I play with all the time:
    Red capsicum
    Pumpkin
    Mushrooms
    Kale
    Snow peas
    Cooking seems to help my digestion and not eating too many salads in a row.
    Hope that helps.
