Interesting IBS alternatives

I have IBS, and a sensitivity to onions, dairy, and possibly garlic. I have a hard time finding any salad dressings that don't have onion in them. So I was glad when I found some interesting alternatives at Trader Joe's today. The less interesting one is a raspberry vinagrette salad dressing which does not contain any onions or garlic.

The much more interesting one is a hummus salad dressing. Yes, hummus has garlic, but I can eat hummus without a problem. And this stuff is basically just hummus with water and canola oil added. And it's VERY good! Also got some hazelnut milk and some almond milk.

Oh yeah, and some triple-ginger cookies. Ginger is a digestive aid, so that might help. At another store, I bought some mint tea, for the same reason.

Unrelated to IBS, I also found at Trader Joe's some blueberry preserves. That's something I've never seen before, AFAIK.
