Spinach is one of the foods that will just kill me, I'm not sure it's a good idea for anyone with UC, but I guess we are all different.
Adi, I've had really nasty cramps as well, I eat bananas for them -it seems to work, all the potassium and Gatorade for electrolytes.
Raw pumpkin seeds are absolutely great, and I can tolerate them. I think we are all losing so much it's a challenge to intake enough to make it up.
Are you eating it raw?
I can assure you it is a good idea for someone with UC. Only the canned or steamed though for me. I would personally not go raw with it in a bad flare. It's my go to as soon as things start to look south.
