...what exactly does that mean?
Like, we can't eat peanuts because they don't digest. Does that mean they get stuck? Cause pain? Or with veggies and skins and seeds? Is it just we run a risk having getting a blockage?
I had a veggie-Brie quiche yesterday (so GOOD, BTW) Anyhow, it was full of veggies - carrots, lots of squash, zucchini, peppers, etc. I noticed (this may be TMI), a lot of the veggies came out pretty much the way they went in - it was like a salad in a bag. (HA HA.) But, it didn't hurt or anything. So why is it bad?
Also, if all my veggies and fruits seem to come out undigested, does that mean I'm not getting nutrients from them? I've eaten all kinds of veggies and fruits - tomatoes, grapes, oranges, carrots, broccoli...Did I just get lucky and I'm playing with fire by eating them? The only foods I've stayed away from are lettuce, nuts, and popcorn.
