Low fibre update

Here are some of my dinners from the last two nights to show that lower fibre doesn't mean no veggies at all- I just make sure I have white rice or pasta with them. The first is vegetables in rice with a little creamed coconut cream grated in and some thai spice mix, parsley and lime juice. I topped it off with a nut cutlet.
The second is the scraping off the tin of my leftover tofu, kabocha and chestnut pie with some pasta and rocket.
At the moment I pretty much eat no fruit and veg until my evening meal. I am hoping to gradually add some more back, but when I first did the low fibre thing I wasn't even eating whole vegetables for dinner.
If you haven't tried cutting down on whole grains and vegetables to help your IBS, I would definitely recommend giving it a go. It has worked wonders for me, although I do miss eating lots of salads and brown rice:(


  1. Thanks for this post Eimear :) I have to say, a lower fibre diet is making a massive difference to my IBS. It's weird, but my body loves white bread and white pasta!

    Hope you have a wonderful christmas. Lots of love xxx

  2. Nothing beats a big hack of a crusty white loaf:) I'm so glad something is finally working for your IBS. It does seem so counterintuitive when you pride yourself on being a healthy person. If it works though, don't knock it!

  3. I'm so happy to hear that you've found what's been bugging you! For me, it's the nuts and the fats that set it off. But sometimes too much veg can cause a bad reaction. I hope you continue to feel better! Happy holidays!

    Nut cutlet!!! So cute!
