Raw Carrots are Evil

Raw carrots are NOT my friend, in fact they are evil. I was trying to be healthy and bought a lovely vege/fruit tray to eat at lunch. The watermelon, cucumber & celery went down well, and then came the carrots. Well 2 went in but it seemed like 10 came back up. Haven't had a sliming episode like that for months. My esophagus is still a bit sore so will stick to soft food and liquids tonight. Live and learn. I think I will have to revert back to my cooked veges.

Carrots are now on my "Do Not Eat Ever" list. As a matter of fact, they are the only thing on that list right now. Do any of you have something on your list that you can't ever eat with the band? Maybe a good question for BYOC on Friday.

Just when I thought Buddy, my band had left me, it shows me who is boss.

Probably carrots for me too. I have had issues with them before too.

Irony that something healthy is something you can't eat. Mine is broccoli... I love it, it does not love me. Violently. Sigh.

Yikes.. I will take that as a fair warning.. I have not tried raw veggies yet... I had problems with bread so I just figured uncooked veggies would do me in.. hope you feel better soon.

I do like them though. I cook and liquidise them, then add the puree to just about everything, in smallish quantities so as not to change the flavour of anything - I'm so concerned about not getting enough fiber...

I have problems with watermelon lately! Carrots would probably be the end of me!

Look at the bright side...I can think of a lot worse things to not be able to eat than carrots.

I'm on purees still so unless is baby food carrots I have no input. :) I have heard that many raw vegetables are a no go for some people. I personally would be sad if tomatoes were on that list. I LOVE tomatoes! Do you like cooked carrots??? Sorry carrots and your band do not get along! :)

Corn is evil. The white of hard boiled egg is also evil.

I tried eating coleslaw with my pulled pork last night,..and had a "stuck" feeling..no pb'ing ..but my hands got all sweaty! :0) So I'm going to go ahead and at carrots to my list too!

Raw carrots, rice, jello, and jelled cranberry sauce. Scrambled eggs used to be a problem, but I have successfully retrained myself to chew them better.

I've never liked carrots unless it was carrot cake, so I won't have a problem avoiding that food. What I did see and read though was that we are to avoid certain vegetables that are fibrous with stalks and I LOVE broccoli. Tell me it isn't so.
