I never tried that particular diet, but have tried other "type" diets, such as~ The Ayurvedic "dosha" diet (I am a pitta), the Body Type Diet by Dr. Abravinol (I am a G-type), and the Chinese Element Diet (I was fire)... all these diets were very different, but the funny thing was I felt improved health and energy on all of them. I think s far as food preferances go, I enjoyed the Ayurvedic diet the best.
I did perineal massage about 1 week before I birthed, but did not use olive oil or any other oil during labor/delivery... I did birth in a birthing tub, which I think was a big influence on my not tearing or needing an episiotimy. Warm water makes the skin very supple.
Could you tolerate a nutrition packed smoothie?? Perhaps made of tofu, soy or rice milk, w/ fruit, a couple leaves of kale or a Tbsp of Spirulina, a Tbsp of hemp or flax oil, ground seeds and nuts or nut butters, etc. If you can tolerate soups you could make cream based soups from pureed tofu, add in broccoli or cauliflour, potatos, leeks, chives, herbs & spices, nutritional yeast... Do you eat meat? You can roast chicken and make gravy from the drippings~ serve...

How about dips w/ crackers or pita bread?? My son has become a bit pickier as well, but he does love dips. Perhaps hummus, baba ganoush, dips w/ a tofu base, creamy dips, vegi pates, black bean dip... How about corn chips w/ a mild salsa. Soups are another thing my son likes. Especially minestrone soup. He also really likes tomato basil soup a lot. If he likes pizza, you could make him mini pizzas~ spread marinara sauce on a whole wheat pita bread, top w/...
What is a yoni???

Some foods that helped me: *dried apricots and prunes (sulpher free!!) *dark leafy greens, such as kale, chard, spinach, etc *organic blackstrap and sorghum molasses *sea vegis (I love putting these in stirfries and miso, my faves are hijiki and wakame; nori is also delicious in a sushi roll!) *quinoa (makes a great hot cereal) *tritacale (a hybrid grain,...
