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.

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!

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
