Low-fiber veggie suggestions

Postby Paul Winalski » Mon Jul 08, 2013 11:06 pm

Normally I try for a high-fiber diet, but I was diagnosed with diverticulitis, and while I'm on the two-week antibiotic regimen my doctor advised a low-fiber diet, then going back to a high-fiber diet once the infection is healed.

Most of the veggies I normally eat, such as carrots, celery, and peppers, are high-fiber. Potatoes, sweet potatoes, and yams I classify in the "starch" rather than "veggie" category. What other veggies are out there that could be considered low-fiber in this context?

cooked boy choy, carrot, collard greens, celery, tomato, all have grams listed in the 2. area.
Plums, apricot, catelope are 1 gram or below.
Cashews, are 1 gram and the lowest in my nut list
If you look online for the fiber grams for all veggies, It will give you a list of those with less fiber

Jeff,

Thanks for the NIH link. It looks as though I was being excessively paranoid about things.
