  • Ice Cream
    Sour cream is traditionally used as a condiment on certain foods like baked potatoes or served with Mexican food. Whole-milk sour cream is high in calories and saturated fat, which, when eaten in excess, can increase your heart-disease risk and lead to weight gain. Choose fat-free or reduced-fat sour cream to trim calories and fat. Sour cream also contains tyramine, a common migraine trigger, and some people with IBS are sensitive to dairy and may experience discomfort after eating it.
