What Is a Bland Diet?


If you have ulcers, bowel problems, nausea, vomiting, or gas, your doctor may recommend a "bland diet." A bland diet may also be helpful if you have had stomach or intestinal surgery.

A bland diet consists of
  • Vegetables, cooked without any sauces or spices. Vegetables that cause gas like broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower should be avoided.
  • Fish.
  • Chicken breast without skin.
  • Most forms of cereal, e.g. bread, corn flakes. Avoid breads and rolls with nuts, seeds, or bran.
  • Fruit taken in moderation. Avoid berries with seeds, such as strawberries, and citrus fruits, such as oranges.
  • Fatty, fried and dairy foods should be avoided, as well as high-fiber foods.
