  • Heather's Eating for IBS Book & IC

    I've also posted this question on the forum but would be grateful for input from the IC "experts" I recently bought the "Eating for IBS" cookbook, before the IC symptoms kicked in for the first time. Sticking with the IC diet, I now wouldn't be able to use a lot of those recipes, so I would be grateful for suggestions with the following issues:

    -- Replacing soy: what do you use when a recipe calls for soy products? I can replace soy milk with rice milk or almond milk, but what about replacing tofu etc?

    -- Replacing fruit: I am not yet sure how my body responds to various fruits so am trying to play it safe. Any suggestions on incorporating IC-friendly fruits to replace riskier ones?

    Thanks a lot,
