"For some people, IBS is aggravated primarily by dairy, fats, meats, & insoluble fiber.  The fiber-piece for invaluable to me!  I also LOVE how this writer describes an 'irritable bowel' being like 'sensitive skin'... there's nothing really 'wrong' with it... it's just 'sensitive'! Unfortunately, her recipes contain a LOT of sugar which is also a trigger for me."
