Eat soft and low-fat foods and avoid cooking methods or foods that give off a strong smell.
  • Choose white meats, lean cold meats and ham, or white fish.
  • Avoid cooking foods that generate strong smells and odours, such as fried, sautéed, or grilled foods. Fried foods, apart from giving off a stronger odour that can be unpleasant, are also more difficult to digest and can cause more nausea.
  • Use gentle cooking techniques to make dishes easier to digest, such as steaming, boiling or low-temperature grilling.
  • If odours are bothersome, avoid cabbage or cauliflower, and cook in ways that generate fewer smells, such as cooking en papillote, microwaving, boiling, or marinating, avoiding fried foods or grilled at very high temperatures.
