All mint family teas are great for bloating.... spearmint, peppermint & mint. I planted mint in my yard and it grow like weeds; I always have fresh mint to boil in some water and make tea. I have found this is the best for me when I am bloated. You might also want to try Gas-X or peppermint pills.
Like you and dbab both mentioned, this is a process of elimination. Keeping a food diary will help you figure out what you can tolerate much faster than trying to remember back to what you ate that made you sick. Also, like dbab mention, sometimes you can eat one thing at certain times of the day and not other times. Me, for example, I can't eat only a salad as a meal. It gives me D. I can, however, have a salad before a meal with Beano and not have any problems. It's strange but these are the things you will begin to figure out.
