KOHLRABI

Kohlrabi

I had to refresh my mind about kohlrabi. I have listed turnips in "not allowed" part of my book because of reports from people that they did not agree with them. Since kohlrobi is a cross between the cabbage family and the turnip family, it is one of those foods that should not be tried until well into the diet and doing well. Then it should be introduced slowly. The chemistry of turnips is a life study. They were not eliminated by Dr. Haas and when I have cooked the big yellow ones, they appear to be mainly water (and delicious) thereby making them an allowable vegetable. However, I have also had turnips that were different, more like a potato. In a nutshell, I don't have a black and white answer for you but since turnips are out, I would think kohlrabi is out as well.

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
