My question to everyone is:
   What foods cause(d) you to see RED??
 
Hey Tbraz - This post was thought of after you mentioned your friend seeing red after eating Twizzlers. 
 
For me, it's Red Velvet Cake.  And I always forget about it until I see red, then panic and finally get my brain back on track and then think --- Oh Yea! 
 
Most other foods don't bother me too much --  red jello does, but I rarely eat it anymore unless I have too.  I have had way tooo much jello when my CD was active.  I imagine there are others out there that no longer care to eat or even look at jello!!! 
 
How 'bout ya all?

well the red velvet cake does, and like peggy, i panic and think i am dying! you would think we would remember that! I ate a whole bunch of red sweet tarts the other day and it turned my output sort of reddish, and I freaked out, lol. Unless it is a life or deat situation I will NEVER eat any type of jello again!
ash-red velvet cake is one of the absolute best things ever invented!  however, do not eat it from a bakery like at Food Lion or something, and do not make one from a box, those are not good. you need a good home made one, or one from a real bakery.  red velvet cake, mmmm, red velvet cake...

At Christmas I was eating white chocolate with crushed peppermint in it and it changed my output to red. I have such a hard time eating Jello because of the previous surgery/test preps! Also sick of eating bananas, applesauce, and plain white rice but will have to force it down for thickness sad And for some reason yogurt/pudding makes me gag (I think it's the texture)

I used to try and analyze what caused my output to be green one minute and brown the next, but now as long as it's a good consistency, I could care less. People with healthy colons are so lucky that they don't have to consider everything that they put in their mouths and what comes out! I guess we'll always have that worry in the back of our minds, I just am going to try not to let it control me.

Summer -- you are absolutely right!  NOTHING compares to a homemade Red Velvet Cake.  Here is a question for you though.  Would leaving out the red food coloring change the taste of the cake at all?  I hate altering  a really,really good cake recipe!!  I guess we could call it a Velvet cake if we leave the red out of it.

Awww, red beets, I forgot all about them.  I'm not a huge red beet fan, but I do like to indulge on  a few on my salad when I eat at a salad bar.  Yep, definitely seeing red with them too.

I don't eat a ton of anything red, well except for gummy bears when I was on a gummy bear kick a while ago.  But I didn't notice red with them.  I will not avoid red things totally if I like them.  I just wish I could remember that I ate them BEFORE I go into panic mode.

Jello -- YUK!!  I have to be really sick to eat it now.  Like on a clear liquid diet for a partial blockage or something like that.

Ileostomy since August 2005.
As result of surgery (modified whipple) for necrotising pancreatitis. Removal of gallbladder, 2/3 of pancreas, resections of large and small intestines. Massive infection. 8 months in ICU at Westchester County M.C. (I think that's a record). Second surgery for resection due to fistulas in January 2007. Been slowly recovering since then. Possible reconnection candidate.

leaving out the food coloring won't matter at all! in fact, my inlaws sometimes make green velvet cake when they run out of red food coloring, and they taste just the same. even though it tastes the same, it's just a little weird though, but i must say the icing is whats most important!

Ya know, I am not a huge icing fan; however, velvet cake icing is my weakness.   mmmmmmm!!!    just love it.  If I get "iced" and snowed in from the incoming storm this evening, I might have to make a Velvet Cake tomorrow with that yummy icing!

Well, I tried to make it in to work this morning.  After nearly falling on my deck, & ice skating across the gravel driveway, I decided I had better get the flashlight (I leave for work around 7a.m.) and go take a look at the road.  The rain is running down the road, but there is a solid layer of ice under it.  NO way!   The cars are spinning their tires going up our hill in front of our house.  That's not a good sign.  So, I am staying put here at home today. 
 
Hey Summer ---- know what that means?  Yep, I'm gonna go see if I can find my recipe and hope that I have all of the ingredients here at the house to make it, cuz I sure am not running to the grocery store!  Wish you were here to indulge with me!!!

Well, I made it, but I haven't tasted it yet!  It just looks like a big white fluff cloud of that wonderful frosting.  Gosh, I can't wait to have a huge piece later on this evening.  

ps  I did not put the red food coloring in it, so I won't have to panic when I eat it!

Praying,

Good for you -- See what being informed does for you!!!   You can enjoy those "red" items and not panic!   Keep up the good work.  You are doing just fine.  So good to see all of your posts on how you are doing too.
