Are Parsnips and Turnips Root Vegetables (and Nightshades) and should I be avoiding them if I have an ulcer? I'm making stew tomorrow and I've discovered that I can't handle potatoes. Just adding carrots is a little boring. Worse case is that I just make it for my husband but I'd love to be able to eat it too.

Thanks!

They are both root vegetables and are not nightshades. They sound just right for a root vegetable stew (rutabagas too) :)

They are not nightshades, but they are root veggies. As far as I know, they shouldn't be a problem for an ulcer unless you have had problems with them in the past.

and they're absolutely delicious... you can blend them up to make your own version of "mashed potatoes" too! YUM
they should not bother your stomach at all... if i overdo them i get fructose malabsorption cramping...
im still working out my limit on them- cause they are too delicious to avoid :P

I've used cauliflower as a replacement for potatoes when my son isn't home (he's deathly allergic to them). For Thanksgiving I'm making 2 ducks, a potato casserole for my son and husband and a sweet squash casserole for all of us.

The duck will take hours (although I'm thinking of using the convection setting on our oven - we're in a new home and the oven is the only appliance that didn't come with a manual - I finally got one online). This will be his first long visit home since he left for college in August. He stayed over for one weekend with a friend when we all went to a concert.

Can you tell I'm a wee bit excited about seeing him? I know I'll have at least 4-5 loads of wash to do.

I plan on getting together a bunch of recipes to post after the holidays. My husband's family was originally from Spain so I've found some gluten-free versions of the family recipes.

If you are trying to avoid nightshade plants you will want to avoid potatoes, peppers, tomatoes and eggplant.

Added lots of turnips and parsnips to my stew (it's rabbit stew which is a favorite of my husband's as he grew up in Spain for a good portion of his life). I initially felt guilty about cooking rabbit but got over it.

Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.
2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.
Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.
So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!
My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.
