I can't wait until the day I can tolerate raw fruits and veggies! YUM
! But, at least I can eat several of them cooked. I tried pineapple for the first time in a very long time a couple days ago. It seemed to go over fine. And the peaches are delicious too. On the vegetable side of things, I recently added asparagus, which is pretty good cooked in olive oil with a little parmesan shredded on top. I like zucchini the same way. Butternut squash with butter is really tasty, which is funny, because I never desired to eat squash in the past.
But I crave a yummy raw tomato, and a big salad, with lots of stuff in it! Maybe next summer, because I'm not sure I'll be brave enough to try raw this year.
Isn't it funny that us crohnnies crave fruits and veggies, while so many people who can tolerate them choose to shun them?
