What are your "safe foods" that never make you sick?

  • By Julie Marie Palumbo Moderator

    When I was flaring, I often felt like there was literally nothing I could eat that wouldn’t make me feel sick. However, the truth was there were at least 5 items that I could always have (chicken broth, eggs, avocado, rice, etc.) that would be gentle on my GI system.

    It honestly made me feel better emotionally knowing I could still enjoy some foods that didn’t make me sick, and I knew that if I was ever traveling I could pack some of these items and never be stranded without something to eat (which is HUGE!).

    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?

    ooo this is a good one!

    For me mine are, bone broth, chicken broth, strawberries, blueberries, grain-free crackers, eggs, ground turkey and dairy-free yogurt.

    Those are my friends and they have never let me down. They are consistently nice to my intestines.

    Great question!

    I tend to find that simple carbs are usually a good bet for me – plain crackers, plain pasta, plain potato, white bread, white rice. Super boring and not always filling, but usually these things don’t make anything worse for me.
