I used to have a _lot_ of problems due to IBS.
I've personally found that just eating good, mostly fresh (few canned)
veggies on a daily basis has solved all of my problems!
I make up a stir fry for dad and I at least twice per week that contains
a good protein source, usually chicken, shrimp, thin sliced pork, eggs,
turkey, fish, or whatever, combined liberally with 3 or 4 veggies from
any of the following:
(these are all canned, the rest are fresh)
baby bok choy
reconstituted dried kelp
swiss chard (any color)
artichoke hearts (pre-steamed)
and whatever other veggie looks interesting
at the thai store. ;-)
Flavor with fresh ground black and/or white pepper
fresh grated ginger, either fresh or powdered
garlic and other herbs/spices to taste.
Both me and dad rarely ever suffer from
irregularity with daily consumption of
high fiber, low starch veggies and it's
a very satisfying diet!
