Was wondering if people would like to share recipe's that help alleviate flare ups or help minimize them. My husband was diagnosed not long ago and I'm trying to do as much research as possible. Would love to prepare meals that will ease his discomfort as much as possible. Thanks So Much!

I always make this when I'm doing bad..gets me through sometimes...Then I eat off it for a couple days...
 
I take chix breast maybe 2-3... throw them in a cake pan add one can of chicken broth and a cup of rice. Real White Rice! season it with salt, pepper, a little tyme and paprika and garlic powder. With Crohns..anything you can spice do it! cuz' everything you CAN have doesn't taste like anything! Let that cook covered for about an hour.
Then when it comes out..I put some rice in a bowl put a little butter and squeeze a 1/2 a lemon on it. It's alot of lemon but...it tastes really good when I don't feel good. Then I buy heinz chicken gravy...already made cuz' i don't feel like makin' my own. Put a little of that on. I don't always eat the chicken..depends on the day..but it's there incase I want it later.
 
Anyway, I call it lemon chicken...funny now my kids ask for it. I always think there crzy cuz' they can have anything. Grass is always greener.:-)
 
so here's the list:
chix breast
1 can of chix broth
white rice
lemons
heinz homestyle chicken gravy in a jar..like a dollar.
spices...tyme, garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika..probably about 1 tsp each.

My absolute must have is the SCD chicken soup recipe! My family used to turn their nose up to it because it didn't have the rice or noodles that I used to put in my chicken soup. But then they did a taste taste with their favorite chicken soup....and the difference is amazing! Anyway, I always have extra chicken broth in the freezer! You should try it.

Please bear in mind that this disease is highly individual and what works for one person may not work for others.

I like to make a nice Sunday supper, especially in the winter, but am feeling uninspired this week. So I went to my cookbook bookshelf. I had totally forgotten that I had the "How to Cook for Crohn's and Colitis" cookbook. I have pages and pages marked with post its. I've tried a few of the recipes and they were good. I'm going to spend the afternoon reading through it again. I can read a cookbook like other people read novels, I love them and have tons.

Unfortunately, I paid for this one, I didn't know you could get it for free!

I also always recommend "Cooking Well for the Unwell" by Eileen Behan. It has lots of recipes that are good for Crohnies and explains a lot of the whys for our dietary needs. The book is out of print but you can get used copies from Amazon for about $4, well worth the cost.

I agree with the chicken soup recipe.  It has good stuff in it and is easy to digest. turn Also check out www.pecanbread.com .  They have recipes there and lots of other good stuff!
