Hi Grizz - I know you posted ages ago, but hopefully you're still on here. I haven't even started IP yet (next Tuesday!), but I saw your post and thought I might be able to help a little bit. I have a condition called gastroparesis, where the stomach takes longer than it should to empty. As such, I have a hard time eating lots of veggies, because they are so high in fiber they are hard to digest, which is even MORE work for my poor broken tummy. I'd check out the Fun with Veggie Purees
thread. Pureed veggies will empty from your stomach faster since some of the work of digestion is done before you even put them in your mouth. I hope that helps!
