I have been suffering from Irritable Bowel Disease for almost 10 years now and am at a point where I’m afraid to eat because of the pain, gas, bloating and chronic constipation. :( When I don’t eat meat though, I do feel somewhat better so I’ve been trying to eat plant based as much as possible when I have to eat. These plant based recipes are great ideas for my condition. I just can’t incorporate some of the gassy vegetables. Thank you! :)
