  • bedtime snacks

    Before I go to bed I'm usually pretty hungry and eat a bowl of oatmeal with raisins, cinnamin, and flax meal sprinkled on top. But I'm trying to lose weight and I think this is a bit heavy before I go to bed. Does anyone have any suggestions for something lower in calories that is IC and IBS friendly? No dairy, soy, gluten, or wheat. Thanks.

      I usually have half of apple or pear with almond butter. Yesterday I made tapioca pudding with coconut milk and stevia sugar it was good somewhat oily. I know how hard it is to find things to snack on. I can't do raw veggies. They need to be real soft and I also don't eat gluten, wheat, sugar, corn, dairy, and eggs. So It's hard.

            I like the Pear Blueberry bars sold here in the ICN Shop... they contain only fruit. They are a nice healthy snack that are easy on my bladder/intestines.
