Hello Charles . . . Welcome to the forum!!
It will be pretty much up to her. She will eventually figure out what she can tolerate while flaring and what she can tolerate day to day. Some here actually go to a liquid diet (Ensure or Instant Breakfast type drinks) while they are having a hard time. But make sure it is her choice. There is a recent topic here about
how offensive it is when a Chron's patient is flaring and then family members ask "What did you eat to trigger this?" Because it isn't necessarily a food.
Here is a link to a recent topic titled: Do you all know what trigers your CD flares?? http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=17&m=1154614
It's not quite the question you are asking . . . but within that topic different members do answer a couple different questions.
I hope your Mom is feeling better soon.
