Jambalaya is a dish that starts with the New Orleans trinity of diced and sautéed onions, celery and green or red bell peppers. Traditionally, it has savory meats and rice too; some cooks add seafood. Wikipedia says that jambalaya was first made in Louisiana by homesick Spanish conquistadors, who missed paella. The French added a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. Folks from the Caribbean sprinkled in their spices. Today, in modern Louisiana, Creole jambalaya, includes tomatoes, and Cajun jambalaya does not.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is tricky. Basically, you show up at the doctor’s office with lower GI symptoms – alternating constipation and/or diarrhea, gas and bloating perhaps, maybe bowel pain and cramping that goes away when you have a bowel movement – and when the doctor can’t diagnose anything else wrong with you, it gets called IBS.
IBS is a not a structural disorder, but a functional one. There’s nothing physically wrong with your gut – nothing injured, eroded, or inflamed – it’s just acting wrong. All of which makes IBS hard, not just to diagnose, but also to treat, since there’s nothing physical you can go in and actually heal.
