What are your go-to "safe" food ideas?

We know everyone is different when it comes to IBD and diet, but it might be helpful to hear what helps others! What are some of your go-to "safe foods" that you know when all else fails, you can at least eat these and still feel well?

  1. My most recent flare I felt as though no food was safe and that maybe I was allergic to food? That is the most frustrating thing about IBD, there is no true consistent.

    1. , very true. One day a food might feel "safe", and the next day that same food might send you into a flare. So frustrating!!

  2. Bone broth, preferably chicken. Soft carrots, cauliflower, celery, zucchini...and then I add cubes of cheese, in hopes it will plug me up. But I haven't had to do this in a long time. There was, however, a point where I lived on it. = )

    1. Hello! In my case, wheat is the main culprit. When I avoid wheat, I don't experience flares but abdominal discomfort is always there.

      1. low residue generally! Flare often coincides with chronic fatigue, so it can mean I can't really bothered to cook either, so simple things like noodles, sandwiches, and low fibre cereals end up being a staple!
