Hi I have Crohn's Disease had it now for 38 years. I've had some bad flare-ups now and then. Thankfully I have not had any operations because of Crohn's. I was wondering how people who have this deal with there diet. I can't have any seeds at all--I used to be able to eat steak and roast beef but i can't eat that anymore causes bathroom problems yet I can eat ground beef 85% beef doesn't bother me -- strange I think. I'm linited on fruits and veggies to. More people can't drink milk but I can doesn't bother me Just wanted to hear any other foods that others can eat with Crohn's. Thank You

When I'm flared up I can't have any dairy except milk, anything heavier makes me pretty sick. Popcorn bugs me. Garlic and anything spicy messes with me. But I'm one of the lucky ones. I do pretty well as long as I don't pig out. That's my biggest thing, I can eat just about anything as long as I don't overdo it.

I recieved a cookbook for Crohn and Colitis, best cookbook ever! I have not been able to eat pork or beef until this cookbook. Our meats are mostly off the land and we raised 3 hogs to see if it would make a diffence, and it did! I found my trigger seems to be all the additives, whether hormones, antibiotics while raising the animal or whatever they use after processing. We made homeade breakfast sausage that we found in the cookbook and for once I COULD EAT IT!!!!! It was wonderful to have a plate of sausage gravy and bisquits without being in extreme pain or running to the bathroom after eating! The name of the cookbook is "How to cook for Crohn's and Colitis" by Brenda Roscher. I hope this helps
