Ryan, if the texture of veggies messes with you, change the texture. Mash them, puree them, try them raw if possible. There are a lot of options.
Maybe even grab a vitamix and do some shakes so texture isn't an issue.
Good luck man and hope you feel better soon.

Hi Ryan, welcome.
RE: veggies. If you hate them, don't eat them. Increase your intake of organ meats, and whatever fruit/veggies (tomatoes) you do enjoy. How are you with fish, like salmon?
If you are feeling adventurous, you might throw some dark green leafies in a blender with a banana, a handful of frozen berries, and some water. If that works, gradually increase the ratio of green:fruit. If it doesn't, oh well. Back to eating some liver.
Do you have other health issues, beyond this apparently unexpected event?
Tomatoes, I have to have them with something, either mixed in with hamburger (a whole tomato in a little less than a pound of hamburger) or a whole tomato in 4-6 scrambled eggs and even then by the time I get to the last few spoonfulls it's a bit hard to struggle through the texture as the tomatoes always find a way of seperating themself from the bulk of the eggs in my bowl haha.
I can do sparse bits of shredded lettuce on a taco, but actually lettuce gets me congested, if I put a very moderate amount (a few mm) on 3 tacos, by the time I'm half way through the 2nd taco I'm all snotty and breathing through my mouth... I'm not allergic to it, because I can sneak it into fresh salsa in considerably quantity and it doesn't do that so I dunno. My body is just strange.
Note, it's currently taking DAYS for my posts to get approved by moderators. For some reason every post of mine requires moderator approval and no one can/will tell me if/when this will be fixed. Please be patient with me if you ask me something.
I would say to buy every vegetable you can get your hands on and try many preparation methods to find which texture works for you, but that is probably cost prohibitive (as it is for me, too bad veggies cost relatively so much compared to junk food).
