I have IBS-C/A. I find that melon, peaches, nectarines don't bother me and seem to be easier to digest. Of course, everything is peeled first. Pears which I love seem to be a bit harder to deal with - maybe because I don't like mushy fruit. I'm not a fan of cooked vegies, but I do steam some of them, just to soften them up. I've been doing ok with some salad greens lately - very small portions, except raw spinach. It's really a matter, for me, of keeping track of what works and doesn't and then slowly trying to re-introduce those "iffy" things back into my diet a small bit at a time. I'd much rather eat fruits & vegies than meat, so it's really hard on me. I've had to learn how to balance things and honestly, I'm not really that good at it!
