Eating after an ileostomy reversal can be challenging. It is a good idea to write a food diary and avoid any foods that upset your bowel motions.
If bread is a problem food for you and you are looking for foods to place toppings on, or make a sandwich style meal out of try crackers, plain water crackers are great for loose bowel motions and wholewheat wholegrains if you tend toward constipation.
For other carbohydrate foods, try rice as a substitute. Plain white rice is great if for loose bowels, and brown rice is good for constipation.
We hope the helps to answer your questions.
