I was a vegetarian for 12 years until I found out that I had Crohn's disease that was seriously irritated by soy and that I should avoid very high fiber foods like beans except on an occasional basis. Is there another way to get a balanced vegie diet. Any other Crohn's/soy allergy vegies out there? (With three kids to satisfy also!!).

hi beacon-<br><br>
i dont have a soy allergy or Chron's, but I have celiac disease, and am a veggie. because of the gut-relation, i try to avoid huge amounts of soy because i don't want it to irritate my stomach. the only soy i eat is in tofu pudding for a snack that i make.<br><br>
it's not hard to be balanced without soy. since it's not a allergy, and instead a sensitivity, can you still tolerate soy lethicin? i know a lot of celiacs who are soy sensitive, but can still have that.<br><br>
do you eat eggs or dairy?<br><br>
my main protein sources are legumes (can you have those? or is it just soy?) and nuts and seeds.
