Hey, have you ever been tested for allergies? I have a coworker who has issues with a bunch of fruit because of an allergy to one of the compounds in them (apples, cherries, grapes, peaches....)
It's not a suck it up kinda thing. Most vegetables, within a couple of chews, violently trigger my gag reflex and/or cause super mucus production that leaves me completely congested. If I eat about 1/4 of an apple, I'm breathing out of my mouth for an hour.
If it's not an allergy issue, I remember seeing a thread around here somewhere about a mom looking for different ways of cooking veggies for her daughter, who had a genuine disorder that made her unable to eat foods prepared certain ways - it has to do with textures and tastes. You don't "have" to put veggies in the stew - make it about the meat, and roast a veggie on the side? (the consensus for the mom was roasting tended to have the best results, with a bit of butter or something on top...)
