Paying attention is key !
Hey everyone, I’ve been told recently that my blog didn’t portray the lifestyle of a Crohn’s disease patient in « perfect details » and that some of my recipes do not respect the do’s and don’ts list.
Though I accept all opinions, I have to remind some of my readers that, like I said in my bio and the blog’s instagram : these recipes are based on what I eat and what I cook for my family/friends, and my goal is only to inspire people to live a healthy lifestyle which includes people who have Crohn’s disease and people who do not.
There is a DO’S and DON’Ts list for people with Crohn’s disease to respect (I will share it at the end of this post).
Although, I have been in remission for over a year now, I plan to stay close to those who are still suffering from CD, especially the people who have it worst than I ever did. My doctor told me that I went from Crohn’s to another IBD (a light one this time) which causes small intestin, stomach and colon inflammation but nothing that will make me suffer more than I used to. Honestly, ever since I’ve been in remission I have not taken any medicine, I wanted to take a break and try natural therapy instead and it’s been working for me so far.
Do’s & Don’ts List :
- alcohol (mixed drinks, beer, wine)
- butter, mayonnaise, margarine, oils
- carbonated beverages
- coffee, tea, chocolate
- corn husks
- dairy products (if lactose intolerant)
- fatty foods (fried foods)
- foods high in fiber
- gas-producing foods (lentils, beans, legumes, cabbage, broccoli, onions)
- nuts and seeds (peanut butter, other nut butters)
- raw fruits
- raw vegetables
- red meat and pork
- spicy foods
- whole grains and bran
You might find some of these in my meals and I thoroughly advise you NOT TO use them if you have Crohn’s Disease and you have to respect that list word for word.
Not all the foods on this list are forbidden, it will always depend on the patient, you can try and see what you can and cannot tolerate first.
If you’re not the type to follow rules, I won’t encourage you to eat everything you can but it’s always best to be careful.
