I've had my pouch now for about 13 years (wow!!).  I remember trying whole grain bread a few years back and having horrible gas.  I assumed we just couldn't eat it and stuck to strictly white bread since then.  I began eating whole grain last week and have been fine.  Do our pouches adjust to high fiber foods over time?

I have had similar problems with brown rice and brown pasta but am thinking of trying them again.  What are your experiences?

My pouch is 16 months old. I started eating brown rice a month ago because of diabetes and I am fine on it, and I like it a lot. For more flavour try cooking it in chicken or vegetable broth instead of water. I like the chewy texture. I eat quinoa too, which I was afraid to do when my pouch was new. I can't eat white bread anymore (simple carbohydrate = diabetes sugar spike) so I eat sourdough bread or whole wheat bread from our local bakery. Bakery bread somehow taste better than mass produce breads. I also eat sprouted grain breads with almond butter for breakfast and like it a lot.  I just discovered that I love pasta made from a combination of brown rice flour and quinoa. It has a delicious texture and I can't tell the difference except I like it much more than regular spaghetti made from white flour.
