In brief: Likely geens.

Whether you are trying to be vegan or not, you muist avoid foods high in phenylalanine.
These are foods like meat, chicken, fish, eggs, nuts, cheese, legumes, milk and other dairy products and starchy foods, like potatoes, bread, pasta, and corn, must be monitored. The sweetener aspartame, in many diet foods and soft drinks, must also be avoided. Leafy greens are likely ok. See dr. To be sure.
