It really is an individual thing. When I am flaring I live on my "white food" diet. Fish, mashed potato, pasta, cheese, pudding, tapioca, chicken, eggs...., but other people can tolerate salad and veggies. You really need to start out slowly and keep a food diary. Make a note of how you feel after eating everything and if something bothers you, wait a day or two, try it again, and if you react, then strike it off your list until you are feeling better.
There are several books out there with suggestions for what to eat. Personally I go by a book called "Cooking Well for the Unwell" by Eileen Behan. She is a registered Dietitian and the book has sections for all types of different dietary needs not just low residue. It has sections for clear liquid, full liquid, adding extra protein and other categories we may never need. She explains the whys and hows of all the different needs and includes recipes. What I like is that I tend to get into a rut when I am flaring because it is easier to just eat the same old same old. When I go through the recipes, it makes me think of other things to include in my diet. Things like sweet potato shakes and adding baby food to up the protein content. I actually like the book so much, I have 2 copies. I was always loaning my copy out and never had it when I needed it. I got both of mine from amazon as used library books for about $4, well worth it.
I hope you can get a combo of meds that start working for you soon and that you can be on the road to feeling better.
