One of the usual low gas diet sites I post has Harvard Beets and Steamed Spinach on the menu.This site http://www.seattlecca.org/gastrointestinal-diet-2.cfmHas these as recommended veggies for people who are having diarrhea problems after meals.
* Well cooked, tender vegetables, as tolerated: asparagus tips, beets, carrots, green beans, lettuce, mushrooms, pumpkin, sweet potatoes and yams without skin, winter squash * Skinless potatoes (baked, boiled, mashed, baked french cut, baked hash brown) * Frozen potatoes: Fat-free hash browns, low fat fries (less than 4 grams fat per 3 ounces)
Generally well cooked seems to work well for people. I would limit lettuce, but you might be able to tolerate a little bit on a sandwich or something like that.If you find soft drinks with high fructose corn syrup bother you, it may be worth starting with the low fructose diet veggies.http://john.toebes.com/diet.html
Recommended Vegetables: * (0 - 0.2 gms fructose) 2 - 4 servings per day. Tolerance may be dose dependent. Servings: 1?4 to 1?2 cup. o Broad beans o Celery o Chives o Dandelion greens o Endive o Escarole o Mushrooms o Mustard greens o Pea Pods, immature o Potatoes, baked, mashed, fried, hash-browns o Shallots o Spinach o Swiss chard o Turnip greens * (0.3 - 0.6 gm fructose): 2 servings per week. Tolerance may be dose dependent. Servings: 1?4 to 1?2 cup. o Asparagus o Beans, snap, canned, drained o Broccoli* o Brussels sprouts* o Cabbage, raw, white* o Cauliflower* o Cucumber, raw* o Green peppers, raw* o Leeks, cooked o Lettuce, iceberg o Radishes, raw* o Summer squash o Watercress o Zucchini*Indicates gas forming foods and may need to be avoided

Even 10 years after getting better, the nightshades--tomatoes, potatoes (white, not sweet), eggplant, sweet peppers, and presumably others--can be problematical both for my skin (eczema) and my bowels.Mark

Thank you for this list. I am definitely having trouble with fructose. I have been eating carrots and beets all along. Maybe those need to come out for a while and I can try these vegetables.

Keep away from vegetables with skins that are hard to disgest and can irritate the bowels like kidney beans and sweetcorn! These are guaranteed to make me bad for a few days after which is a shame because I love them!
