Oh yummy, I've been away from the genotype diet stuff for a while, want to get back on the bandwagon.  These veggies sound so simple and delicious.  I already roast asparagus and love to
add lemon after it's cooked.   I found a recipe for green beans roasted with some slivered shallots, then add lemon zest and crushed marcona almonds before serving, man is that another keeper!
But these suggestions sound great!  Do we have a gatherer recipe thread?

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!
