Catchy_Username added a topic in Other Food Intolerance and Leaky Gut IssuesMultiple Intolerances - Can I Still Be Vegetarian?Hello everyone,
Is it possible to be a vegetarian despite multiple food intolerances? I don't like eating meat but unfortunately, many of the usual meat substitutes are out of bounds. I am working with a naturopathic doctor (gave up on symptom-treating mainstream doctors) to heal my gut and hopefully reintroduce some things, but here are my current taboos:
dairy (except hard cheese)
potatoes, sweet potatoes
corn (can eat corn meal or flour)
peppers, sweet and hot
onions and garlic
large amounts of soy ie tofu or edamame
I mostly eat eggs, gluten-free bread or rice, peanut butter, and safe fruits and vegetables. And unfortunately, a lot of sugar and coffee, because it is so hard to find interesting flavors otherwise. Suggestions for how to subsitute for those would also be great.
