Try to get a book called "Cooking Well for the Unwell" by Eileen Behan. She is a registered dietitian. She has sections in her book on just about every special diet that a Crohnie or any sick person might get put on. She explains why we need that type of diet in pretty plain english and then gives some really great ideas as to how to incorporate healthy options with recipes. The book isn't in print anymore, but you can get used copies on Amazon for as little as $4. I actually have 2 copies because I kept loaning my copy out and never had it when I wanted it. Some of her ideas are excellent, especially for low residue and liquid diets. I tend to eat the same thing over and over and then I just don't want to eat anymore because I'm bored. That's when I go to her book for some new ideas.
