About a month ago I made this cauliflower bacon soup recipe, where I steam a small head of cauliflower, stick it in the blender with coconut milk and chicken broth, and add in bacon and sausage. I'd had it a few times before and I loved the recipe, totally paleo too. But that one time I ate a lot of the soup, and I got really bad bloating, I checked and found that I'd added an inch to my waistline. Was that caused by the steamed cauliflower, eating too much of it, or a combination? I haven't touched this soup since. Eugh, I skipped dinner that night because my stomach still hurt >.< Does anyone else get bloating from steamed cauliflower?
They cause problems for me. I've found most veggies do. I now do FODMAPS. Has helped me so much especially in the vegetable department. I stick to leafy greens, kale, spinach, lettuce, collard greens, bean sprouts, occasional green beans and feel great. I ALWAYS got bloated after having broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauli, or other veggies of that nature.
