Individuals with irritable bowel syndrome, also known as IBS, can have difficulty controlling their symptoms. The symptoms of IBS range from abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, constipation, and bloating. Episodes of IBS symptoms can come on quickly and leave sufferers in embarrassing situations.
There are many specific foods, also known as “trigger foods” for IBS. To limit symptoms, it’s best to avoid these foods and see how symptoms change. To do so, keep a food diary to record what you eat and what your physical effects are. If you feel better, then you know what foods to eat and which to avoid in the future. To help get started, here are 10 common trigger foods that you might want to avoid if you have irritable bowel syndrome…
Cauliflower can be a trigger food as well as a particularly gas-inducing food. So it makes sense that your tummy may start to rumble and you may experience gas inflammation after you nibble crudités (i.e., cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and raw salad).
Cauliflower can be used to replace rice and potatoes, but this is not a good choice for people with IBS. Instead, try brown rice for a healthy option that is bloat-free. Alternately, you can steam cauliflower and still get adequate veggie intake without problematic IBS symptoms.
