It varies for me - apple sauce often works. Almonds sometimes. Tea w/ honey.

Sorry to here you feel so bad-but I do understand! <_<

For me, I always have rice. I really like the jasmine rice, it has a nutty kind of flavor. Also, if you can do dairy, I like cottage cheese and yogurt. Those tend to get me through when I feel really icky!

Hope your better soon!

Hi--sorry you feel so yucky :( I would suggest eating something different--like rice bread toast, cream of rice cereal, gluten-free broth, tea, or any bland, cooked thing that sounds good to you. I would switch off the peanut butter and bananas for a day or 2 at least--if they have not helped by now, maybe they are not what your body is needing. Since I've been gluten-free, I can only tolerate PB once or twice a week. Hope you feel better soon! :)

Sorry you feel so crappy...

I'd go for non-high fiber cooked to death fruits and veggies, and plain meats if you can handle it.

Applesauce, canned pears and peaches (in their own juices), nothing very acidic.

I miss saltines, too. :(

You might want to try camomile tea. Anything with ginger can be helpful as well.

Thank you all so much I guess I have just had a little virus that has taken a while to get out of my system, I had some good homemade bread for lunch with peanutbutter, and I just had some apple sauce with peanut butter mixed in, if you cant tell that is my comfort food, and helps me add some protein and dense calories, I cant stand to loose any weight!

I've read that bananas are good for a damaged intestine.

When I feel yucky I tend to favor tea (regular or peppermint) and white rice. This may sound crazy but I still lean towards a bagel (gluten free ofcourse) when I feel sick. I'll toast a Glutino bagel and put some peanut butter on it.

Hope you feel better soon. :(

I had read somewhere that Kale is very healing for the intestine. Even early in my diagnosis I ate a lot of it. Unlike some green veggies that are hard to digest, kale really does make my gut feel better. I saute it in a little olive oil, and sometimes mix it with Lundgren Family Farms brown riceor Bob's Creamy Hot Rice Ceral.

Sounds a little crazy, but I was willing to try anything. The sauteed kale all by itself really works for me.

Potatoes always feel good on my stomach when it is hurting. Either baked or nuked and I add EVOO and salt for taste.

You might want to try a different nut butter or hemp seeds for protein. Also, I can ususally tolarate rice protein powder in water. Juice is always too strong when my stomach is upset.

Hope you feel better soon ... marcia

I've noticed that I feel that way from time to time. I think it is worse when i eat less or not at all. Although it hurts when I eat. It seems to get better when i can get back to a regular diet. Have you decreased your intake of food? Just a thought. Do you take anything like pepcid? Sometimes I just make way too much acid.

I hope you feel better!
