I agree, what works for one, won't work for all. But I would also recommend another book that I find very helpful. "Cooking Well for the Unwell", by Eileen Behan. She is a dietian and has sections that cover just about all the different stages that we might go through with this, or any, disease. I actually have 2 copies because I found that I was lending it out so much that I never had it when I wanted it for myself. I got it from Amazon as a used book for about $4. She really goes into what you need nutrition wise at different stages and why, in simple to understand terms. And then there are recipes for each section. It just helps to broaden my selection of food choices when I am not feeling well and seem to just repeat the same "safe" foods over and over.
As far as my "safe" foods, I call it my white food diet. Fish, pasta, potato, bread, custard, eggs, tapioca, chicken, broth..... you get the point. Soft, bland and really plain!
