I confess, I prefer snacks to meals, and I'd rather have a dinner of several different appetizers than one big entree. I don't feel guilty, though, because it's important for folks with IBS to eat small amounts of food frequently, and with so many safe and wonderful treats to snack on, it's a lot of fun, too.
Toasted French bread, baked corn chips, and pitas form the perfect high soluble fiber basis for lots of delicious low fat dips, spreads, nibbles, and noshes. Baked potato chips, pretzels, and corn or rice cereals are fast, safe snack foods when you're on the run, but the following recipes are almost as easy and offer a wide variety of tasty, healthy options.
Summer tomato and cilantro salsa (with baked corn chips)
Tangy Indian tamarind chutney with pappadams
Crunchy pizza party snack mix
Home dried sweet and chewy banana chips
