I drink both V-8 and V-8 fusion. They are great though they turn my output reddish orange:)

I drink the two suggested. I often make soup with tons of veggies and blend for the puree effect no bad chunks to worry about.. When I make it, I know its all natural and put the spice flavors in myself.
Those things we keep trying to do get easier not because the feat gets easier but our ability to "do" gets better.

? have you considered getting the benefit of fruits & veggies thru juicing - theres a whole world of info on juicing out there (e.g. & it is a way of getting the nutrition without cooking, chewing or digesting - i tend to avoid raw vegetables & many fruits for fear of blockage if i hav'nt chewed enough - i may be being over cautious here - i hav'nt 'juiced' since my op so i dont know whether the juice would travel thru my system very fast or not - i might give it a go over the weekend

UC since 1990, not a lot of fun
Qualified as ileostomate May 2010, a much happier boy now
panproctocolectomy, abdomino perineal resection, perm ileostomy
my colon may not be, but my heart is in the right place !!

The only veg I avoid is mushrooms as I got a particularly chewy one stuck few years ago as I have a stricture but all other veg whether cooked or raw I eat without a problem.
