For the past 20+ years, I've had a boiled egg (odd time scrambled) and toast for breakfast. *I did eat rice bread for the first year of diagnosis...not bad toasted but mega expensive* I have rye toast with some marmalade and of course coffee. I didn't drink coffee when I was first diagnosed...tea was what I favoured.
Bananas give me most excrutiating gas...I rarely eat them. I'd never have them in the morning...for by afternoon, the gas would be unbearable. When I do eat them....I'd have them in the evening.
Regarding steak...broiled would be better. I have never had problem with meat. I think protein with every meal would be of benefit to your husband. I think about
3 ounces is the recommended amount. Not too much I don't think..chewed well and with something like potatoes or well cooked veggies.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
