Are Parsnips And Turnips Root Vegetables?
0

17 posts in this topic

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.

I love parsnips. They are great pureed, and they are also great as a roast veggie. Rutabagas I tend to put more in stews and stuff - not quite so tasty!

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
