When I'm bad bad really really bad, I only eat plain natural foods. No sugar, no processed food, and only low acid fruits & veggies that are well cooked or easily digested, along with smaller portions of meats that are also chewed very very well (cause I often get obstructions). Sometimes I'll have to eat natural pureed foods.
I rarely eat canned soups or frozen stuff because anything with preservatives or chemicals makes me feel so much worse when I'm flaring really really bad.
I used to drink ensures 1-4 x a day but it just went right through me anyway and the sugar is bad for crohn's so I gave them up. I haven't tried the sugar free ones, but artificial sugar is bad for crohn's too.
Hope you feel better soon.
When you feel bad eating a good balanced diet is hard but even more important than ever....
so for me....I usually stick with things like :
applesauce, Congee (Rice porridge), egg drop soup, mashed potatoes with a beaten egg mixed into it.
fruit smoothies with a good soy protien powder. Well cooked carrots or squash (I usually save the cooking broth and mix it with my congee or soup. Yougurt.
I try to eat things that will pass through without a problem and won't require my piping to work to hard.
