is it okay to eat blueberries in a smoothie? What about blackberries?

I don't have an ileo, but I wondered why I had green stools on Sunday, and now I know.  I ate blueberries that morning.  I was sort of freaked out!

I have been buying blueberries weekly as they are in season. I have been able to get containers with a lot of large ones in them. For hubby I take out the large ones for him so he can eat them one at a time and chew them so none will come out whole...lol.

The peaches from Georgia have been incredible. Let them ripen up for a few days - peel off the skin and we have 1/2 one each as they are quite large.

He is not overdosing on the fresh fruit but I try to make sure he has a small helping daily and it doesn't seem to impact things...didn't ask him about the color though..lol.
Wife of 64 yr old male suffered with UC & in May 06 had a severe flare & hospitalized 6 days...various prednisone treatments leading to steroid dependence and osteopenia, 12 asacol, 200 mg Imuran, failed remicade infusions Jan-May 2010 Dependence on pain meds. Made decision 6/10 to have surgery which was on 12/17/10 (total proctocolectomy & ileostomy - unable to have the j-pouch) & now pain free

blueberies are totally healthy and have all kinds of health benefits. But what come out of the bag afterwards really is super hilarious. Dark green to black! It doesn't matter, ostomy output is always going to be different than regular colon poo, and we have to get our vitamin bombs just like everyone else.

I've also been snacking at work lately on red beet chips. They're like potatoe chips, only from beets and without oil.
What happens later is what I'd call it halloween make-up output. It's very funny as well, as long as you don't forget it's because of the beets.
