it was awhile before I could eat salads and other raw vegetables - maybe four months or so? I could eat cooked ones a lot sooner, but I can't remember when. Someone not as far out probably remembers...

My diet cleared me for vegetables on day 43. But I had my first salad two days ago. I have had sauteed spinach and cooked broccoli with no issues!

I had to wait 8 weeks before any veggies were allowed! And I have an organic vegetable garden! It was killing me! Soooo...... I got my greens (lots of different kinds), put them in the blender/Ninja with some Water and made a green slurry that I strained and then ran through coffee filter paper. I added my "green water" to everything - my water bottle, my smoothies, my Soups. My doc was mad at first when she saw my water bottle, but I showed her that it was a CLEAR liquid which was allowed, and then she agreed I could drink it. (Lot better for me than Crystal Lite or artificially flavored/colored/sweetened drinks.) So that is what I did. I felt like I got my healthy phytonutrients and all the good Vitamins, but without the Fiber that was forbidden.

Brocolli, for some reason, still upsets my tum a bit. Well cooked or shredded Brussels sprouts are OK. Even at 10 months out, I have to chew salad very slowly and very well.
