Brief Answer:
Regular and low spicy food....

Detailed Answer:

Avoid all spices. Restrict beverages. Prefer to eat frequent small quantity meal and never skip meals.

Besides these dietary changes, it is essential that you sleep adequately. Maintain weight in ideal limits. Start exercise. Stop alcohol and smoking if any.

These changes will prevent recurrence of peptic ulcer.

It is also worthwhile to see a gastroenterologist and rule out H.pylori infections.

Hope this helps.
