5. Bland

Though bland food isn’t something you would think would be beneficial, it is for people with sensitive stomachs or anyone suffering diarrhea. Spicy foods, or rich foods, can be painful to anyone suffering stomach upset, which is one reason the diet is designed around bland foods.

If you need to season these foods to make them more palatable, you might try some ginger in your applesauce, which can help nausea or diarrhea, cinnamon on a banana, which helps digestion, or adding low sugar or plain jelly to toast to make it more palatable. Try to eat rice plain or with a little salt if you need some flavor. Overall, the simpler the better when it comes to foods on the BRAT Diet, so embrace the bland, and your stomach will thank you!
