Peeling Vegeteables!!

I find it very hard to peel vegetables....carrots and potatoes I have found hard to do!!

Has anyone heard of anything you can use to help? I think it's my lack of being able to grip the veggie hard enough!! ...also it really hurts my fingers and wrists!

Yes i get problems trying to peel veg, with me its the grabbing hold of the knife and the veg.
I always try to get someone else in the household to help me.
I cant even mash the potatoes. :(

i just cannot peel veg full stop. it works out more expensive - but would buying pre-prepared veg from your supermarket be better for you??? this is what i do much of the time. xxx

Must admit I rarely peel veg at all, just give it a scrub clean and take off any nasty bits.

The soft grip easi-peelers are helpful I find. Also having a stool to sit at the kitchen counter so you don't have to stand.

Thank you for all your replies :)

I didnt even think about just scrubbing and washing the veggies a bit instead of peeling them when it comes to potatoes as I don't think you can buy them ready peeled :) but definately think I will just buy ready peeled carrots :P

I think it's the coldness of the veggies too that just make my hands seize up :lol:

Organic carrots just need scrubbing and washing too.

It's awful that you all have pain from peeling vegetables but I am so glad for this post as I thought i was the only one this affected and always feel so useless that I cant even prep the veg for dinner. At the moment my OH does most of the cooking but I worry what will happen down the line when we have children as he will have to work and i'll have to do the cooking.
