I have the same thing and have found frozen fruits and veggies to be wonderful! There are some single serving options, or I just dump some in a bowl, add a bit of water and microwave for 1 to 2 minutes. I too can't eat carrots and avoid them at all costs. The best way that I can describe the reaction is literally taking your breath away. Since I don't eat out I have no tips for that one - sorry. Frozen blueberries are so yummy during the summertime! I put them in crystal light lemonaid
No sugar added applesauce with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Can you eat canned veggies and fruit? There are individual serving sizes in the canned isle and individual fruit in water (NOT syrup).
