Was it plain instant rice or flavored/seasoned?  I am pretty sure plain instant rice is gluten free.  What did you eat with it?

Stay hydrated.  Allow your body time to rest and recuperate.  

Avoid NSAIDs.  They can cause more irritation.  Try a hot water bottle or a heating pad for discomfort.  

Some of us like bone broth or "cooked to a mush and easy to digest" stews.  Crock pots and instant pots are great for this.

Avoid processed foods.  

Avoid caffeinated drinks.

Avoid nightshades.  Potatoes and tomatoes contain alkaloids that promote leaky gut syndrome.  

Avoid raw veggies, especially iceberg lettuce.  Raw veggies can be hard on the digestive tract.

Avoid dairy.  Damaged or irritated villi might not be able to produce the enzyme lactase needed to digest lactose, the sugar in dairy.

Avoid corn, oats and other grain alternatives. Basmati rice is the type of rice least likely to cause a reaction.  Consider an automatic rice cooker and cook rice from scratch in future.

Avoid legumes.  Beans can be hard to digest and the gas produced during digestion can make you uncomfortable.  

Consider the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol diet.  It removes grains and rice, legumes and other hard to digest foods and promotes healing.  The AIP diet guidelines are great for short term flare ups of digestive problems.  

The book I found most helpful is Dr. Sarah Ballentyne's book, "The Paleo Approach."  She also has a a website....


Hope you feel better soon!
