I am type 2 diabetic. I also have diverticulosis and lactose intolerant and have trouble finding good recipes. Also I can not use onions in my cooking so alot of foods taste bland even with onion powder. Any suggestions?

No help from me, I don't cook a lot, but with uclerative colitis, I cannot digest onions and peppers. Try that one!!!! I can tolerate onion powder or onion salt, so maybe those will help. My husband is finally beginning to understand foods can be an issue for some people. Good luck. S2

I agree with anonymous, try different herbs in your meals, my wife has diverticulosis also and herbs dont bother her diverticulosis and some really mild onions, small amount of onions, also might try mild pepper rings.Good luck

I would recommend trying different peppers (white, black, green, red) and fresh basil, fresh thyme, fresh oregano and of course, fresh garlic… Bon Appetit!!!!
