I know everybody is different as far as what foods they are sensitive to, but for those of you with IBS-D, have you found any vegetables that don't cause problems with D? It seems that every vegetable I try causes problems.

Cooked over raw definitely, but I'm sure you knew that! I don't have a problem with carrots, celery, mushrooms, green beans, potatoes, mostly anything canned or frozen. I love broccoli, but that's kind of hit or miss. I felt like having cole slaw the other day, but was too afraid of the cabbage and mayo!

The veggie I eat most is frozen peas. Unlike BDA43, I have much better luck with frozen veggies. I don't know if it is because the pesticides are washed off better, or if it is how they are processed, but they agree with me much better than fresh. I also eat green beans, broccoli, and carrots. And lots and lots of potatoes.

I can handle carrots, green beans, potatoes, squash, and sometimes spinach. I would recommend to stay away from corn. Corn is upsetting to most people with IBS. Broccolli and cauliflower are too gassy!

The simple answer: Well cooked ones.You will just have to experiment. I can eat raw tomatos, but not tomato sauces. Olives are too fatty, and cause me problems. Some veggies, like corn, appear in everyone's stool. Cabbage causes gas in a lot of people. I stay away from brussel sprouts, because I can't stand them!

I can eat anything as long as it's cooked. Cabbage and cauliflower make me a bit bloated, but don't affect the D. Corn doesn't get digested, but it doesn't cause any problems... I think corn is often undigested by even 'normal' people.susan

Sorry about that! Deanne, I'm having to learn to eat all over again. Meat, bread and potatoes do not bother me as long as I don't overeat. The last couple of weeks, I've introduced lettuce, a few mushrooms and frozen peas back into my system. The only thing is that I really have to watch what I eat afterwards the rest of the day (if it's lunch) because my D can kick up if I'm not careful. Try introducing one thing at a time over a period of time. It's helped me to see what hurts and what I can tolerate!Good luck!Janie
