I have had good luck with chicken, white rice, salmon, tilapia, potatoes, bananas. The chicken has to be properly prepared - no deep frying, try not to eat the skin, and everything has to be bland w/ little black pepper or spices. Broiled salmon with some olive oil and lemon juice works good. Some people recommend high fiber - I am the opposite and have to eat low residue food...
I was on the spinach / sunflower seed diet but cannot tolerate it during a flare...
