DIVI DINERS

Posted , 70 users are following.

Returning from a hospital session of Drips and Deprevation (food) I was handed a Low Residue diet to follow. Scant in products,and information what to do with said products, I searced the web for more information, 

onlt to find contradictory eat's and don't eats, so I thought that WE the 

sufferers of food deprevation should start our own Divi Diners club and see if we can throw some light on the subject.

Ilove mushrooms,but cannot find any info about them.

How do we achieve our five a day if we can't eat fruit? Is it O.K. to take the

skins off?

Can we have chips or roasties,or fish with batter on?

Spices, do any of you use spices. and what do you put on spaghetti?

Can we blitz veggies, as stews and casseroles are forbidden?

Pastry is allowed, but no mentoin of which type.

So. can we help each other ,then at least when ,or if we ,dine out, we can

order something from the menu.

I cannot eat boiled potatoes ,eggs (is it O.K to have a fried one?)

jelly and rice pudding for ever. .

So please join in and share your doe's and dont's. mushrooms eaters

would be good to hear from.

    Hi Jacqui

    What a good idea!

    Here's what I have found to be good over the past 12 years or so (together with my dietician).

    Pastry fine - all types

    Stews and Casseroles - both O.K. (but either omit or limit the onion). My wife thickens the stock and this just makes it so much better to eat.

    Chips, roasties (but not huge piles) are O.K.

    Fish, with or without batter is O.K. But....

    Try fish cooked in a bag in the oven, it's delicious and so digestible.  Wallmark do super fish and a  huge variety at very competitive prices. They will seal in bags with a butter of your choice!

    Pears, bananas, tinned passion fruit.  Try making a fruit salad (no need to peel (banana, yes, of course). Make the liqour with brandy (good for digestion)/little water and muscavado sugar.  Eat with Greek natural yoghurt.

    Have a teaspoonful of 'set' Manuka Honey (10+) first thing in morning and drink water (tap) during day.

    I find 'strong' vegetables (calabrase etc) difficult and 'farty'.  I avoid it.

    Blitz veggies but try and avoid onions.

    Acidy foods should always be avoided at all costs.

    Mushrooms are OK.  My dietician condones their use.

    Interesingly, she also tells me to have a couple of digestive or oatmeal biscuits mid-morning with my coffee. I am not a coffee drinker but I do have them with green tea (which is also good for digestion).

    If I have Italian, I have loads of Parmesan and shredded Parma ham (taught from living in Italy).

    I hope your forum works and I shall be keeping an eye out for good advice from others.

    best wishes.  Jon

      what a relief, someone bothered to reply. Many thanks to you, and obviously your dietician. I'm really happy about the mushrooms shady

      area you didn'n say anything about frying ?

      I wonder what the no-no is on onions.?

      Are curries out, and herbs in general are not to be eaten.

      Fortunately my preference on the protein front is fish.

      glad to hear about the stews.

      Thank you.

      Funny you should mention Manuka honey , I do, or rather

      did,take it just for it "being good for me" but will start again.

      After the humugeous pain I endured with my first flare, I was

      quite afraid to eat anything, after reading the Residue diet.

      I'm looking forward to breakfast.

      Hi Jon, just wanted for you to tell me why you avoid greens,do they cause mega problems or pain .or a flare up ? Desperation is setting in. 

      Will it be good to cook them until they are soft, or doesn't it alter the   reason for avoiding them

      I eat pineapples, but again go for the really ripe and sweet.  If it's not ready, pop it on a sunny windowsill.  Or buy the prepared packs.  In fact, in might be better to get a small preprepared pack and try it rather than potentially wasting a whole pineapple.

      Whoops!  Sorry.  Is it OK to tell you the last fresh one I had was in Spain a couple of months ago?  Still warm from the sun and the stall holder cuts it with a sort of corkscrew thing that leaves the central core and cuts the flesh out in a spiral, which is then put back into the shell.  Does that make sense?  It's lovely.

      Hello, Just come across Divi Diners so don'tknow if you still visit the forum. you have mentioned about onions being off the menu and it seems many do have trouble with them. You may already know this by now but IBS sufferers are often advised to try the low fodmap diet. Onions and garlic are not allowed when doing the elimination diet as they are high fodmap. Doctors are saying the diet may help with DD for some people. Worth looking into. On low fodmap you can use proper garlic infused oil instead of garlic. Available from supermarkets but may sure you get the clear one without garlic at the bottom. Tesco do one. To replace onions in cooking you can use the green part of spring onions or green part of leeks and of course flavour with chives. Much like with DD one you start to reintroduce foods you find you can either eat a food freely as you don't react or not at all or in moderation.
