Helen, mcribbet is right, Beans are usually high in phes (accept like mcribbet said green beans). As for rice that does tend to be high in phes aswell. Luckily, they do have specially made low protein rice that you can get (which is good for me since my grandma is full philipino and we rice alot ).
I try to keep my outlook on PKU as positive as I can, it makes life so much easier. All that PKU means for me is just eatting alittle different, the only real thing I don’t like about PKU is the blood tests I’m not really a big fan of needles n.
