Regarding vegetables, in some ways i was quite relieved - i had a feeling that some of those supposedly ok veggies didn't agree with me, although i hadn't quite managed to pin it down properly. (yep, had my suspicions about broccoli!And tried sweet potato for a while but knew that didn't like me either) And some veggies I had been avoiding (like carrots as they are on my 'too oestregenic' list - & yes, could tell they didn't like me very much too). But it is still frustrating that a lot of the local organic veggies available are no good for me.
But to make up for it, I have started having more onions (for a while I thought these didn't agree with me, but seem ok now) and tonight I have ventured some garlic (organic,local) - again, avoided this as part of the oestregen issue but at the moment I seem ok, and really enjoyed it! So maybe taking out some of the other foods means my body can tolerate different foods.
I now have celery in the fridge, which I have found ok, but I still associate it with Weight-watchers (that & cottage cheese!) so psychologically I find it hard to eat. And in fact I have had two tubs of cottage cheese with pineapple which I have enjoyed (don't really like it plain though
What intrigues me is that some of the leaves of the vegetables are ok? I don't have the book to hand so I can't remember,is this literally what would be pulled off the top of the vegetable? Or have I just imagined this? Maybe if so, I could ask the local place where they grow veggies to keep some for me!
