If I want to get things moving again I find porridge (oatmeal) in the morning helps and so do bananas.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will add that to my constipation arsenal. Although, I did read online that bananas cause constipation b/c they are recommended as part of the B.R.A.T. diet when one has the stomach flu and diarrhea.

I hope the oatmeal works for you. Kinda reminds me I need to eat some myself. A new medication has changed my normal functions. Bananas are a great source of potassium and fiber. It's truly amazing how our bodies are the same but they react differently to things. Make sure you are drinking enough water.

I have a sensitive gut so normally I have the opposite issue.

For me kiwi fruit and those seeds are deadly as well as stone fruit. Again they are a great source of fiber. Even pickles......
PS. Never forget good old baked beans ..... Try making lentil soup too.
