Hi there - Bay's plain english muffins (found in the refridgerated section near bagels) are one of my main foods (along with yogurt, bananas, turkey, etc.). There's something so simple and light about
these muffins, they're unlike the other brands (which are heavier and more dense). They also come in wheat so avoid that one, you want to buy just the regular, plain ones.
Instant mashed potatoes worked wonders for me after my colon resection/temp colostomy reversal. Along with Stouffer's frozen meals - terriyake chicken and rice, roast turkey and mashed potaotes, chicken pot pies, etc.
And of all things, Pepperidge Farm Bordeaux
cookies really kept things even keel for me. They're in the smaller bag, are rectanglular in shape and thin wavers, that have a crunch and caramel flavor to them. But they're on the plain side too. Early on, they helped turn around the dreaded D. I was surprised but someone told me ginger snaps help them and these
cookies taste similar to a ginger snap.
Wishing you more of a variety choice food wise but like you, I stick with my tried and true what I like to call "magic foods". Let's just say I'm never out of bananas and yogurt (and toilet tissue!).
You know I realize now that these foods are probably out for you (since you cannot have dairy and bread products but the foods I mentioned above really helped me 8 years ago, after I had colon cancer, 15 inches removed from my lower colon and my sigmoid taken out, temp colostomy reversed 2 months later.....).
I wish you well.
