Hi there! Just thought I would post that I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and try to eat healthy. I use Benefiber powder every morning (because it totally desolves), and that has helped alot. My thing is, I try to eat more vegetables, but they end up giving me gas and hurting my intestines, which in turn, makes me not want to eat them.

How do you prepare vegetables like brocolli and cauliflower so it won't do this to your intestines?

Broccoli and cauliflower are well known to be gas causing vegetables so you might want to stay away from them. Also raw veggies will be harder on your system than cooked ones.
