These low fat soup recipes might be just the thing you need on days when your IBS is acting up. Soothing and nutritious, and filled with IBS-friendly ingredients, these recipes have all been provided by the About.com Guide to Low Fat Cooking. One of the best things about soup is that you can whip up a batch and then enjoy it on more than one occasion, a sharp contrast to meals that take hours to prepare and then are gone in ten minutes!

  • Broccoli Soup
    Cream of Broccoli soup without the troublesome cream - yum! If you struggle with excessive intestinal gas, save this one for a night when you will be close to home.
  • Cauliflower Soup
    Delicious and nutritious - all you would want in a soup. Same caution as with broccoli, if cauliflower is a gassy food for you, save this soup for quiet nights at home.
  • Chicken and Leek Soup
    This soup sounds so soothing you may want to keep some in the freezer for those days when your system is acting up.
  • Spinach Soup
    If Popeye had IBS, this is what he would have for dinner!
