So is it okay now to try foods that have seeds like strawberries, raspberries, tomatoes etc. I have avoided any seeds since I was dx'd with UC a couple of years ago. Popcorn.....wow. That would make me a nervous wreck so that is awesome that you can do it. Popcorn would make my belly blow up huge even before I as dx'd with UC. I avoided it (even then) at all costs.
