Since everyone is always asking “What veggies are OK to eat?” or saying “There aren’t any veggies we ca eat on the WOE!” I have compiled a list of safe and unsafe veggies.
Note: If you are unhappy because your favourite veggie is on the naughty list please don’t ask me why or ask if you can still have it. You are a grown up. Make your choice. I explained why they are where they are in the article. If you don’t agree, eat them to your hearts content. If you don’t understand, google “why are lectins bad”. I do my research before I post anything. There are a few links at the end of the article.
Always keep in mind that 20g total carbs is still the daily limit and I always recommend counting TOTAL not NET!
These are the Safe veggies and are all low in lectins or only have beneficial types of lectins:
Green and red cabbage
Hearts of palm
Red and green leaf lettuce
Mesclun (baby greens)
These are the Unsafe Veggies that should be avoided at all cost. They are inflammatory or high in damaging lectins:
Sugar snap peas
Chickpeas (including as hummus)
Textured vegetable protein (TVP)
All beans, including sprouts
Squashes (any kind)
