herbalistextraordinaire asked: Hi, I really enjoyed looking at the recipe list you have and am hoping to make some of them in the kitchen reaal soon! :) I have UC and I am still experimenting with what I can and cannot have. Can you recommend to me more good Crohn's/IBD recipe blogs? Thank you and cannot wait to see new recipes! <3
Hi! I haven’t been able to find too many Crohn’s/UC specific booking blogs, but there are many books available. A fair amount of the time, I just look for recipes that I like and then tailor them to my dietary needs.
Sprouted Kitchen is a healthy/whole food blog. Most of her recipes don’t have any meat, so it’s a good place to get vegetarian inspiration.
A Life of Sugar and Spice is a blog run by a girl with Crohn’s. She posts recipes, food ideas and has a list of product reviews as well.
I was able to order How to Cook for Crohn’s and Colitis for free from my GI office, I would check to see if your office is also offering it. It has some good recipes, but not all great for when you’re in a flare up, depending on how well you can tolerate diary or meat.
What to Eat with IBD is a book that explains food through a nutritionist and patient point of view and also has a bunch of recipes.
I hope this helps!
emmettbennett asked: I have IBS, which is definitely not as serious as Crohn's (although for awhile they thought it was Crohn's, not relevant but just a tidbit) and I too love to cook and it seems like the "right" foods change every week, in terms of what triggers my symptoms. Temperamental stomachs are the worst! This blog is perfect. So, so appreciated!
Thank you so much! I understand the tummy troubles and hope that you find some recipes that work well for you :)
kimrrn asked: Hi. Thank you for liking my post as it has lead me to your awesome page. I haven't taken the time to dig in and see if you have any bread recipes yet. Do you have any wheat recipes?thank you!
Hi! I do have some bread recipes: Caramelized Onion & Spinach Bread, Irish Soda Bread, Peanut Butter Bread, Zucchini Bread, and Pumpkin Cheesecake Bread. I think the next bread I’m going to try out will be more of a standard bread, so you can use it for sandwiches, etc.
I also have a recipe index page over to the left, so it’s easier to look through all the recipes and find something you like!
