Quincy (Heather) - Fish....yes, I can eat fish sparingly. I always forget about
it since DH doesn't like it. It's easily digestible, right? I usually stick with Orange Roughy as I have minimal swelling with that fish. I blow up when I eat salmon tho.
I took the Peanut Butter suggestion and had some last night and this morning for breakfast. It did not bother my gut in the least. Since 2:30 pm yesterday afternoon, I've only had 2 or 3 cramps. Before 2:30, I was getting them every hour for the past day. This last one was hardly felt....more like a "I gotta poop" cramp.
Since everyone mentioned protein, I made Miso Soup last night with Tofu. That went down easy and I wasn't woken up with cramps.
Hummas! I will definately get some and some of the rice crackers. I guess I won't be eating the usual Thanksgiving dinner this year (I was going to make a Turkey exception, but have decided against it). Probably a good thing since we are going to the IL's and they are big southern cookers....tons of BUTTER in EVERYTHING!
Thanks for the suggestions!
