low fiber diet for the next three days
On Tuesday I am scheduled for a colonoscopy, and the instructions say that two days before, I am supposed to avoid fibrous foods, fruits with skins, and seeds (poppy, sesame, caraway). So I bought some bananas at Trader Joe's, since I will peel them before eating them. Does this fall into the category of low fiber? I also bought some sourdough bread and Brie and Camembert, since I thought that white bread would be low in fiber. What about potatoes, providing I peel them? I am assuming that I should avoid beans!
Our counter tops and sink are in, but we do not have the faucet connected yet, and so Kevin wants to continue eating out. Tonight we had Persian food - grilled lobster kabob and chicken kabob with peppers, onion, tomato, and saffron Basmati rice. I had lentil soup as a started, so that I could avoid salad, but I will not be eating any more lentils for the next few days. I also bought some yoghurt at TJ's, but I will not be eating fruit with it.
Is there anything I am missing? What are the best low fiber foods to eat for the next few days? I am assuming that nuts are out, as well as whole grains, but is white flour okay? I have some cucumber, tomato, and onion salad that I made recently, but I only partially peeled the cucumbers. Are tomatoes high in fiber? I assume that lettuce is.
