Hey all,

So i unfortunatly was silly enough to eat too much popcorn (which on good days is fine and on bad is the worse i can do)... Now my system is on a riot against me... I have a bad case of not only diarrhea... but prickly ouching diarrhea... :(

Anyways I'm so sick of rice, and at this point i just don't want to eat (but i know i have to). My dietician's out of town, so i'm wondering if any of you have some suggestions for tummy friendly simple foods...

Hi
 
I would ALSO love to hear any diet / food suggestions .I'm trying to slowly build back to normal eating and get over a bad flare up. So far all i have been told is to not eat fruit or vegtables and eat white bread , white rice / pasta. Cornflakes too , altough it depends on how you take to milk
 
I did find a list somewhere on the net and it mentioned foods based on white flour such as cakes , biscuits etc but i cant find it now
 
I had tried mashed potatos but not sure of this is a good idea or not

mash potatoes are great as long as you are not lactose intolerant. Potato soup is my fav!

baked potato is an excellent source of nutrients -- just don't eat the skin. I do boiled or lightly scrambled eggs (lactose free milk or rice milk) When I am dealing with a flare I depend on yoghurt -- plain with a little maple syrup is my staple. My former doc, my saviour, preferred to see me on a low-glycemic load meal replacement rather than eating plain white starches when I was miserable. She was of the opinion that filling up on white bread etc was not a health promoting solution and really pushed the powdered meal replacement made by usana because of its low-glycemic load and because it was subject to FDA scrutiny so its nutritional claims were tested. This is the only meal replacement I have found so far that doesn't give me the runs. Even the formulas used for tube feeding have exacerbated my diarrhea.

Why can't you eat mashed potatoes if you're lactose intolerant?
 
You don't have to put butter and milk in mashed potatoes, to make them taste good, infact I never use milk or butter for my mashed potatoes, I use fresh herbs of course, and chicken broth.

Salmon, chicken both of these are very versatile, using chicken broth, extra virgine olive oil, fresh herbs, brown rice which is much better than white (but still eat it only on occassion), any veggies you can tolerate broiled with extra virgine olive oil and fresh herbs.

It's not just what you eat but how you prepare it and what you add to it, many seasoning salts are chalk full of preservatives (MSG's) which can exacerbate IBD symptoms, I use EVOO on everything (including as a daily moisturizer for my skin) it's sooooooo healthy for you and fresh herbs, there's a ton to choose from and mix and match, there are even many that can help with IBD symptoms, tumeric, cinnamon, ect.

sweet potatoes mashed or baked are great and have more nutrients than white potatoes.

Root vegies, steamed or mashed.

Broths. Pureed soups, or soups with diced root vegies and white rice.

Tinned salmon or tuna, as someone else has mentioned. Springwater or brine might be better than the oily stuff.

Semolina instead of porridge.

White bread or toast.

Smoothies - use soy or rice milk if you can't handle dairy.

Eggs - boiled, poached, omelettes or scrambled with whatever fillings you can handle.

Baked custards.

Stewed peeled apples.

pb, I'm really not sure about the brown rice. It's not on a low-residue diet.

I don't do low residue...I eat lots of fibre, brown rice is just better for you than white starchy rice.

sweet potatoes are also a natural anti inflamatory. Also I agree with pb4 about brown rice, and if you soak overnight in water and a bit of lemon juice, it becomes softer like white rice and is easier to digest. Cook as usual after soaking.
