Hi Lola...I've had digestive issues since I can remember. I took medications for years for IBS and nothing helped. In January of this year I eliminated meat, dairy, all fat and oil, sugar, all caffeine, corn, and wheat. I don't smoke or use alcohol.
My simple diet consists of baked potatoes, boiled sweet potatoes, brown rice, homemade lentil soup, steamed vegetables and now I can handle about a half cup of raw vegetables daily. My evening dessert is one raw apple. In the summertime I like green smoothies made in my Vita-Mix, they're refreshing on a hot day and it's a good way for me to get green vegetables without feeling sick. I drink water between meals and tepid peppermint tea with meals.
I was wondering what you put in your green smoothies. I love smoothies but thought they weren't allowed on this program. I also have IBS and when it flares up I can't eat many raw veggies, so I use smoothies to get them in my diet, but I also put fruit in my smoothies and sometimes flax or hemp seeds (1 tablespoon, but I share my smoothie with my husband.)
