    One of the best adjustments I made was trying new foods or preparing old foods in new ways. There are lots of interesting esoteric vegetables out there that many people just ignore. Lots of different veggies can be roasted in the oven with olive oil, salt and thyme or rosemary; often far tastier than boiling or steaming. Try roasting carrots, asparagus, cauliflower, onions, portabella mushrooms, bell peppers (not necessarily together!). If you have never eaten raddichio or fennel or broccoli rabe or celeriac try them!

    I admit that there are still foods I can't eat that make my mouth water, but some I no longer miss at all. I've lost my taste for cranberry relish, orange juice or half a grapefruit, and for red wine as well. I can cheat a little when it comes to salad dressing, but most dressings now taste too acidic to me.

    It sucks, but I kept my goal in mind: to be able to sit through a two-hour movie. Diet is the least invasive way to be good to your bladder. And remember, things can and do change. I am eating lots of foods now that I completely stopped eating for two years.
