Irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS, is a common condition that it effects up to 1 in 5 Americans, including 15% of children. When looking to manage IBS making healthy diet decisions isn’t an option…it’s a necessity and it can be difficult, especially around the holidays! In addition to finding the right probiotic to help with the dietary management of IBS, the trick is to know which ingredients trigger IBS symptoms, eliminate them, and prepare foods that will still please everyone’s palate.
That’s why we were happy to see NEW IBS-friendly recipes created by medical nutrition therapist and registered dietitian, Patsy Catsos. *VSL#3, a high potency probiotic medical food that is clinically proven in the dietary management of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis (UC) and ileal pouch, must be used under medical supervision. So in addition to taking a probiotic watching what you eat is also a necessity.
We created this fun recipe book with delicious IBS Friendly recipes ready to go.
We made this delicious hummus dip recipe, great for snacks or even for lunch. Ingredients
