I'm currently two weeks into my elimination diet; eating pretty much only meat and sweet potatoes. I feel okay but I hoped to feel better to be honest. My stools aren't what they're supposed to be. Not terrible, but it was better when I was eating more greens.
I wonder what veggies I can add to my diet to help improve my stools. Except for FODMAPs and nightshades?
You're looking for stuff high in insoluble fiber (insoluble fiber scrubs your guts, soluble scrubs your arteries), which is usually cellulose. Celery, pretty much the whole cabbage family (but on the FODMAP list), bitter leafy greens, bell peppers (FODMAP), peeled cucumbers (cucumber skin causes a lot of people to burp), fresh sprouts. Edible grasses and grass like plants would also count (don't know how gluten-intolerant respond to wheatgrass drinks), but would give you a chance to enjoy more lemongrass.
