Goat Cheese Mac and Cheese
I know what you are thinking: Goat cheese? Won't that cause more problems with my IBS? For some, goat cheese can be an issue, and for others, it is not something they need to look out for. I fall into the side of IBS that does not have a ton of symptoms and not a lot of foods that I need to cut out of my diet, at least not yet.
Everyone is different, so if you are new to this world of IBS, explore what you can and cannot eat. And who knows, you might just have a new favorite recipe after this! When reheating this tasty recipe for later, add in a splash of soy milk to loosen it all up and pop it in the microwave for about 2 minutes for a tasty and quick lunch!
Note: The outcome will be rich and delicious, so I recommend eating small portions or thinning the sauce out afterward with more soy milk (or other milk of your choosing).
