Contributing vitamins, minerals and fibre to our diets, adverse reactions to individual vegetables, or vegetable groups, can often be responsible for individual food sensitivities in the UK.
Manifesting as bloating, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), weight gain, fatigue, skin problems, migraines or joint pain, even a mild food intolerance to some vegetables may have a major impact upon a person’s day to day activities, and the inclusion of these foods in a western diet is so common that the actual intolerances can be difficult to find, and also to avoid successfully. However, there will be many foods that could provide a similar nutritional profile.
Lisa, a full time mum in Cornwall, has suffered with bloating for most of her adult life – trying to identify the trigger for her bloating has been very difficult.
