With Thanksgiving tomorrow, I thought it would be appropriate to do a short write up about holiday eating for Crohnie’s and UC-ers.
Holidays mean food and lots of it. Some is good, some is bad, and some is all around delicious. But for those with IBD, eating the wrong thing or too much of the right thing can ruin the holiday and equal hours in the bathroom.
Anyone with IBD knows how much having the disease sucks. It limits what you can do, where you can go (in proximity to a bathroom), and what you can eat. While you can’t control when you are going to flare or need the bathroom, you can control your diet and try to suit it to help you feel as well as you can.
Whether or not you are on a special diet, it’s always important to keep track of any foods that may trigger you. For some people, that’s spicy foods, for others dairy. Each person is different so please don’t take what I write as an end-all be-all for IBD diets. Do what works best for you. So without further ado, here are some of the more common diets and food restrictions for Crohnies.
