Peas and IBS

Peas and IBS

I have added peas today. Didn’t add too many, just one portion, as they are high fibre and I already know fibre is a problem. I had them for dinner and am fine at the moment so I’ll see what happens tomorrow! Day 2 Hmm. I can’t say I have had a reaction to peas […]

Courgette and IBS

Courgette and IBS

I’ve decided to add courgette as its good for stir fries and casseroles. I’m eating it with the skin so it will interesting to see if its fine. Courgette is a source of insoluble fibre and so far I’ve been better with soluble fibre so I shall have to see what happens. Day 3 Well […]

Tomato Puree and IBS

Tomato Puree and IBS

Took a couple of days to get to normal after the last reaction with tapioca. Today I’m adding tomato – not the pips or skin so I’m adding tomato puree and sieved tomatoes. It really adds flavour to things – I had some minced beef and it really tasted nice. I hope this will be […]

Cauliflower and IBS

Cauliflower and IBS

So I’m adding cauliflower today. Not too much and only the florets as the stalks are very fibrous and can cause problems for IBS sufferers. Only just found this out. So if you can’t eat brocoli or cauliflower and you eat the stalks it might be worth just having the florets instead. Day 1 So […]

Broccoli and IBS

Broccoli and IBS

Broccoli is one of my favourite vegetables so I’m adding this one first and also the dietitian suggested it was best to try broccoli as it is the easiest vegetable to digest. Day 3 3 days of broccoli and I am feeling fine. So I’ve now added my first vegetable! Yeah! That means I can […]

Onions and IBS

Onions and IBS

As I said yesterday being high in fibre, onions could be a potential problem. I cut them out from my diet when I did the first test removing all high fibre foods but that doesn’t mean they are going to be problem. Anyway I added them today and I have had slight stomach pains but […]

Carrots and IBS

Carrots and IBS

So this is what happened when I added carrots. Day 1 I had a roast and made some gravy using yeast extract. A proper meal at last!! I really enjoyed it. I have had a bit of a stomach ache this evening – nothing bad so maybe its just one of those things. See what […]

Peppers and IBS

Peppers and IBS

I tested yellow and red peppers a week ago. Don’t really like green peppers and they are stronger anyway. I found yellow and red peppers to be fine. By the way I ate them raw in salad rather than cooked so that should mean that cooked ones will be fine too. Last night I had […]

Garlic powder and IBS

Garlic powder and IBS

Onion powder was fine so today I am adding garlic powder. I’m not going to bother with adding actual garlic since it is so similar to onions and I’m no good with onions. I added some garlic powder to roast potatoes and they were very yummy! So far so good. After 3 days I am […]

Onion powder and IBS

Onion powder and IBS

So today I am adding onion powder. I tried onion itself and it gave me IBS symptoms (stomach pain and loose stools) but some people can tolerate the powder. (see onions and IBS post) Onion powder can be found in gravey and sauces as well as on its own so its quite common and it […]
