Just over 2 weeks in this flare and just when I thought it was tapering off, I started getting cramps (no urgency tho). I'm at that point again where I'm afraid to eat food, but I have to eat, YKWIM?
B/c it's been so long that I've been in a flare where I've reduced my diet to just a few things, please help me remember what are good things to eat?
Toast (yes, the brat diet)
and what else....I'm so drawing a blank. And quite frankly, I'm sick of bananas. If you switch to a bland diet when you are flaring, what are your favorite non-irritating foods that you eat when you are in a flare? I'm also looking to add some new things to my diet so I don't get bored with the 4 mentioned above.
