2. White rice
Like bread, most people prefer to eat long grain varieties of rice, such as brown or jasmine, over white rice. The reason being is that just like breads that are made out of whole grains, long grain rice has more nutritional value, including more dietary fiber. If your doctor has recommended eating a low fiber diet to treat diverticulitis, skip the long grain rice and instead opt for white rice. One cup of white rice contains about .6 grams of dietary fiber, which makes it a good food option to add to a low fiber diverticulitis diet.
