Eating for IBS Recipes ~ Main Dishes

Dinner's on! Wouldn't it be great if you could safely eat it? Well, here's terrific news - with these recipes, you finally can. Many people are already in the habit of having a soluble fiber base to their dinners, whether pasta, potatoes, rice, or bread. It's very easy to work from this foundation to create delicious meals while keeping just a few other considerations in mind.

Simple substitutions of seafood or chicken breasts for meat, soy milk for dairy, and the use of low-fat cooking techniques will quickly give you safe dinners with no extra effort. Just remember that main dishes should carefully incorporate as many fresh vegetables as possible (follow the Eating for IBS guidelines), and small amounts of pureed beans or finely ground nuts make healthy additions as well.

There are so many delicious dinner choices to look forward to, from traditional homestyle favorites to exciting ethnic specialties, that the only difficulty you'll likely face is choosing just one to eat tonight. You have many wonderful, healthy meals ahead of you - enjoy!
