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.

I was introduced to this diet 7 years ago. Began the diet with my physicians knowledge and was able to go prescription drug free within a year. The diet really works and the book not only gives the how to and recipes, it gives the scientific information to back up the evidence. I highly recommend this book/guide to all that suffer from intestinal disorders.
