I have been a vegetarian for more than 10 years and I have always thought it helped my colitis. However, lately I have been thinking of starting to eat some chicken a few times a week to get a bit more protein because my husband and I are trying for a baby and I worry that my restrictive diet might not provide what I will need. If I didn't have colitis I wouldn't worry, but I worry that i could flare and have to cut out dairy, etc. and that then I wouldn't get enough protein, etc. Has anyone had problems tolerating meat after a long period of vegetarianism and do you have any advice on how to make the switch? Thanks in advance for the advice!
