Soothing foods for IBD

Standard

Some of my favorite things to eat to sooth my IBD is: sweet potatoes, Avocado, Hot Blended oatmeal, rice, blended soups, spanikopitas, scrambled eggs,unsweetened applesauce, pure dark chocolate,pineapple, cherries, blueberries, grilled/baked cod or salmon, and well cooked veggies such as carrots and broccoli.

This week I finally went online to find out how to make blended oatmeal. It is so easy to make and easy on my GI tract. All you do is grind 1/2 a cup of oatmeal in a coffee grinder or blender, add 1 cup of water or non dairy milk alternative, put in a small pan to cook on the stove for  about 8-10 minutes while stirring occasionally or place in a rice cooker. add your favorite sweeteners like Agave, Honey, brown sugar.

Blended soups are also wonderful when you need soothing food.Sometimes I make soups with chicken, beef or vegetable broth. First I steam veggies in a pan. while that’s going I saute onions and garlic in a pan. when all is cooked I blend it up in a blender with turmeric, salt,pepper and whatever other favorite spices.

Other times I use coconut milk for my cream soups. I usually steam broccoli or asparagus in a pan. Then I blend up the veggies with about a cup of coconut milk, spices and some of the water from steaming veggies. MMM good!

Well these are some of my tips for now.
