How long have you been on prednisone?
It could be foods, stress, the prednisone, IBS (mucus colitis) continuing inflammation...
What other symptoms are you having..is there any rectal discomfort or urgency when you're having mucus...or is it during bms?
Would you consider to use probiotics? Are you taking any other supplements?
I don't see a lot of protein in your diet...you could consider to up it a bit.
