But honestly, I've never had a food cause a full blown flare. That's always been the inflammation levels in my body. Food can just aggravate what's going on in there already.

Yes everyone reacts differently to different foods, but there seem to be two pretty constant themes I have heard over the years:
1. If it feels hot on your tongue, it will likely feel hot to your gut. Since Crohns is an inflammatory disease, foods like spices that increase inflammation make little sense.
2. If you have any level of obstructive disease, stay away from foods that are more likely to get stuck -- nuts, corn, etc.
