Actually garlic is good for you even people with Uc. I use Caeser all the time on my Romaine lettuce salad and I do ok with it. I also use Catalina. When I flare, I tend to stay away from things that I know that bother me. Sometimes though, it doesn't matter what I eat because it can still go right thru me.

I live on cesar salad when I am flaring. I add extra balsamic vinegar, olive oil and tons of fresh garlic. I swear it helps me in my flares and if I stop eating it and have potatoes, after a few days, I can feel not is all good with my colon.
 
 
Dx:  UC Proctitis 2006 
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence. 
Started Meds:  Apr 9 08 500mg 5ASA (salofalk) to ease flare, tapering, stopped. 
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
 Added: tumeric and probiotics.

I have a vegetable salad nearly every day and I use the seven seas packets which I mix with canola oil and rice vinager. I also have dark chocolate everyday, not a lot, but a couple bite size bars. I did give up the salads and chocolate and a few other likely culprits in my diet early on after my diagnosis, but never found that it made even the slightest difference in my UC symptoms.

I do however have a problem with gastritis type pain and it is seems to be bothered by everything I eat somedays, but I don't feel it is related to my UC.

I would never come home from work if I was a pastry chef. I hope you do not find that your creations bother your UC so you can keep on sampling them!

I make my own using extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, salt&pepper, sometimes I'll whisk in a little mustard with it, and I add fresh herbs as well.

Bbc, I can't eat regular salads with iceburg lettuce - nope that kills me. But for some reason, Romaine lettuce doesn't bother me much. I also like to use either croutons or Salad Toppings as well as sharp cheddar cheese. But If I use Ceaser dressing, I like freshly grated parmasean. All the other stuff that is usually found in salads I tend to keep out.

Salad dressing really doesn't affect my UC, I can eat whatever kind I prefer. When I'm flaring, I can't eat the raw veggies. If I can eat the salad, I don't have to worry about the dressing. I love a good balsamic viniagrette.

I tend to lately use refridgerated dressings from trader joes, they have much less salt.  I found a new store brand one from hannford, balsamic vinegar and it is flipping delicous and only 50mg of salt per serving.
 
I have made my own before and it is also delicious, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic like pb4, it is yummy!

I am now able to eat salads and I make my own.

One is balsamic vinegar and olive oil

The other is milk, mayo, and ranch dressing. I Love it this way, but I don't like the bottled.

Life is good now that I can eat me some salads!

If you start taking cayenne pepper pills daily, your inflammation will go away within a month. If you feel pain afterwards then just drink some baking soda. This is the only thing that helped me. I thought my life would be over for sure. Also, it can be combined with slippery elm to give a lubricating effect. Feel better everyone!

I just use homemade with olive oil, vinegar, and honey/spices or citrus juice. If you look at what's in some store-bought salad dressings, at a certain point, its probably healthier to eat a pepperoni pizza instead of the salad.

I try to avoid creamy salad dressings that contain things like polysorbate 80 based on research others have posted here.

Yes, open the capsules and sprinkle the cayenne on your salad ,how much is up to you. I'd sprinkle on some baking soda too, for good measure, and to help with the burn. 😂😂😂😂😂

This is a very old post and IT MAKES ME JEALOUS gah, still can't eat raw veggies, even baby spinach tears me up. Yesterday I caved in for some fresh spring rolls with carrots, cucumber, lettuce, etc. Was on and off diarrhea the rest of the day <sigh>

i can't eat anything raw either, esp salad. I mix freshly squeezed lemon juice with a little bit honey and when i eat avocado, i cut it into halves and pour some of this dressing inside :)

Cayenne pepper pills made me laugh even though I have no probs with red pepper, however black pepper makes my gut go into IBS mode. Weird but the gut rules.

I just recently re-introduced garlic into my life after being out for a couple years. Yeah it's healthy yada yada but my gut did not like it previously (before UC I LOVED garlic anything).

I may just try the cayenne pepper pills one day since I have organic red pepper I grew myself and grind for coconut curry stir fry and some empty capsules. What's the worst that can happen haha.
