I'm just curious what everyone elses safe food(s) are? It is always nice to get some more ideas.

I have found rice cakes and chicken noodle soup are always good.

Hello :)

  I actually got this idea from my veterinarian when my little dog got sick.... I take cooked chicken and mix it with cottage cheese and rice, heat it up in the microwave just enough to melt the cottage cheese and yumm....  That is what she suggested I give my dog one time and when I was preparing it, it smelled pretty good so I tasted it... Wasn't bad at all and I have found that it will even soothe my stomach when it's not feeling quite right.. 

Diagnosed with U/C January 31st, 2004, IBS on July 21st, 2006 
In Remission since December 11th, 07, with no U/C meds at this time! But, I do take:
         Xanax .5mg as needed - Effexor 37.5mg. - Culturelle 1x a day
         Plus Now I'm on HRT.... ARGH.. menopause.. Estradiol, .5mg 1x a day

I have found that when I am starting to flareup, I do what my kids pediatrician told me to do with them when they would get sick with a virus. I would feed them the BRAT diet. B-bananas, R-rice, A- applesauce, T-toast. I also eat homemade chicken soup and Saltine crackers. I try to follow a low residual diet too.

Did any of you ever try the Specific Carbohydrate Diet? I had no luck with it, but I did like the homemade yogurt with honey and canned peaches. The almond flour really bothered me too.

Chicken has been mentioned a lot here and I agree - It's also one of my 'safe foods'.  Rice cakes go well for me too, as do pears.

Hot wings And Guiness!! It never bothers me, and even when I would be in a bad flare, I would drink a few Guiness and have about a dozen breaded hot wings, and within 1-2 days my flare always goes away.
