For IBS sufferers who are predominantly bothered by constipation, a vegetable oatmeal bisque is tasty and healthy, according to Joy Bauer. To make it, combine 16-ounce bag of frozen broccoli florets, 1 16-ounce bag of frozen cauliflower florets, 1 16-ounce bag of baby carrots, 1 peeled and chopped zucchini, and 1/2 chopped onion over medium high heat. Add 6 cups of broth, plus salt and pepper to taste. Cover and heat until the mixture is at a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for approximately one hour.
Stir in one cup of old-fashioned oats and mix completely, advises Joy Bauer. While stirring occasionally, simmer for an additional 40 minutes. Puree the soup in a food processor or blender. Serve while hot.
For a simple sweet treat that is enjoyed by many children, people with IBS can make peanut butter and banana freeze pops, notes Joy Bauer. To make it, divide 1 medium ripe banana in half lengthwise. Spread peanut butter over one of the banana halves. Put the halves together, and surround with plastic wrap. Place it in the freezer for at least four hours.
