What are the worst vegetables?

Cabbage, broccoli, onions, eggplant, green bell peppers, green beans, and leafy greens are the worst offenders. Because carrots, cucumbers, celery, and red and yellow bell peppers have less insoluble fiber, you may be able to tolerate them uncooked. However, once they're cooked, the fibers become more soluble and can cause problems for those with constipation or diarrhea.

The best vegetables are potatoes, tomatoes, corn, and asparagus. They're all high in soluble fiber. The more of this type of fiber you eat, the better because it helps control your blood sugar levels and promotes healthy digestion. Avoid fiber supplements that contain isolated fibers. There is very little research showing the benefits of taking isolated fibers in supplement form.

Fiber has many health benefits for everyone. Fiber's water-absorbing qualities help control constipation, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diverticulosis, hemorrhoids, and urinary incontinence. Fiber can reduce your risk of developing kidney stones, diabetes, and heart disease as well.

What vegetables are hard to digest?

Cruciferous vegetables, such as cauliflower, broccoli, kale, collard greens, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts, are the most hardest raw vegetables to digest. If you have a propensity to feel highly gassy or have disturbed digestion after eating raw veggies, you should avoid eating them uncooked.

The enzymes in cruciferous vegetables can irritate and inflame the lining of your stomach and intestines. This is why people who suffer from ulcers or inflammation of the bowel should avoid these foods entirely unless they are cooked first.

Even though it's recommended that you eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables daily, it's not necessary for your body to fully digest all of the nutrients found in these foods. Because certain nutrients are best delivered in their natural form, leaving some ingredients untouched is better than consuming them too quickly where they won't be absorbed properly.

Stomach acid is needed to help break down food before it can be absorbed by the intestine. Without enough acid, some nutrients are not as bioavailable (or available for use by the body) because other organisms in the digestive system can make use of them instead. For example, calcium is used by bacteria in the gut to produce vitamin D when eaten with milk rather than being released into the bloodstream for use by the body itself. By avoiding vegetables that require high levels of stomach acid to break down, you're limiting your body's ability to absorb the nutrients found therein.
