Been off work a week and a half, drinking ensures, water, and eating apple sauce. I had a better day yesterday so i decided to try some chicken with rice soup for dinner. That wasnt so good. I was wondering if eggs would be a smart choice to try today? I JUST WANT TO EAT SOMETHING AND NOT REGRET IT!

Was the soup canned? They tend to have a lot of salt and other additives. I think eggs are fine. Maybe you could try mixing some greek yogurt with your applesauce, unless you have problems with dairy...

Applesauce kills me! I have no issues with eggs though. But if you want chicken and rice, you should try just plain chicken (baked or broiled - not fried) and white rice. The white rice can help bind the stool. Also fish is a safe bet. I personally like Salmon because it not only helps my Uc but it gives me that extra boost of Omega 3.

Scrambled and sunny-side up gave me no problems. Eggs do have sulfur which is supposedly a bad thing for UC people, but they are very soft/low residue and an excellent source of protein. Eggs were one of my main foods during this recent flare.

Another vote for scrambles and omelettes. I'd worry more about the sugar content of Ensure than about eating eggs in moderation.

Scrambled eggs was the first food approved by my GI when I was discharged from the hospital with my initial flare. I have been eating eggs thru all the flare ups. Some Spinach, cheese and smoked Salmon goes really well with the egg while in a flare.

I also eat a lot of eggs, they never bothered me. You can scramble them and cook them in the microwave in one minute which is great. I use a paper coffee cup so there is no clean up, sometimes add a little cheese. I also eat egg salad for breakfast, especially in the summer, with a little salmon. Yum.

Make your own soup, it's so much better tasting and you can control what goes in it.

How do you make a spinach omlette? Do you just put spinach in the middle of it?

I am also an ODD one in that I can't eat salmon but eggs are fine - good source of protein.
As for soup - homemade is best, of course.  But, my husband in a sodium restricted diet and the new cream of mushroom and chicken noodle salt restricted soups from Campbells are great.  Not the low sodium but the salt restricted diet ones.  He loves the mushroom.

Eggs are sometimes listed as pro-inflammatory. However, the aren't always:

http://www.brighthub.com/health/diet-nutrition/articles/42904.aspx

Make sure they are vegetarian fed, omega 3, organic eggs if you do try eggs.
Colitis is in remission. No longer get IBS.
 
Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.

What works for me: Fecal transplantation, Probiotics, Anti-inflammatory foods, No HFCS, No crystalline fructose, No foods high in fructose, No artificial sweeteners, No pro-inflammatory foods when flaring, vitamins & supplements, Lexapro (for stress).

Eat only egg whites. In fact that's the very best thing that you can do! If you must eat yolk, then use half a yoke for two egg whites and either scramble or make an omellette. Do NOT eat egg yolk when it's not fully cooked.

I'd eat half of one egg and see what happens. I'm on Ensure and white rice right now. The rice at least lets my stomach pretend I've eaten something.

My best comfort meal when I was flaring. I cook rice. Then in a fry pan with just a smidge of olive oil/canola oil I fry the rice and pour over a cup of "egg beaters" (equivalent to two eggs but no fat). I stir fry. I use either salt and pepper or parmesan cheese on top sometimes.
I eat with baked white fish of some kind. And canned beans.

For years and years this meal aided me during a flare.

I do remember tonight that hard boiled eggs sometimes give me gas - just took some gasx - not bad, just annoying! We do have organic food available in the city and one special store but many miles out of my way.  I am not convinced that organic everything is the best for us anyway.

Spinach omellettes...my food of choice when flaring

   How do you make a spinach omlette? Do you just put spinach in the middle of it?
 
 
It's easy Zippy. I just put 3 or 4 eggs in the pan, stir them up. I sometimes add tumeric since it's anti-inflammatory. I thaw a bit of frozen spinach (can get them in little cubes here), and just drop some of the spinach pieces right into the egg and let them cook together.
Then you can put whatever you want into the omellete, sometimes I add cheese, cottage cheese, chicken if I already have some made, occasionally a tiny spoonful of salsa (only if I'm feeling ok and only a bit) and/or anything else you like.
 
Just experiment, put whatever you want in them.
Hope you enjoy!
