Fruit with the skin removed, applesauce, eggs, pudding and cream of wheat are examples of bland foods. Bland foods are foods that are not spicy, are low in fiber and have a soft texture.
A bland diet is followed for a variety of reasons, including the treatment of ulcers, nausea or other intestinal issues. When on a bland diet, steamed, baked or grilled lean meats are a good source of protein. The dieter should avoid eating spicy, fried or raw foods and refrain from drinks containing alcohol or caffeine. Low fat milk, weak tea and water are good drinks to include a bland diet.
