I have been eating the sunflower butter and was afraid to try spinach but last night I did.  Thought I would share this recipe.
 
I dumped a can of chopped spinach into a non-stick pan.  Added a bit of butter, lemon juice and salt.  Once it was nice and hot, I added about 2 cups of cooked angel hair pasta and heated that through.  Then I added some cooked shrimp, feta cheese and pecorino romano (these are goat cheeses - no lactose) and a dash of hot sauce.  Tossed it all until everything was hot and bubbly.  It was absolutely delicious and what is even better news.... my body loved it.  As of yet, no adverse reactions!  It was so good to taste spinach again after so many years without.

Presently on: 600 mg. Remicade every 4 weeks
                   Venofer infusion every 4 weeks
                   B12 every 4 weeks              
                   15 mg. Methotrexate/injection weekly
                   12 Asacol daily
                   10 mg. Celexa daily
                   Zofran as needed

That sounds great! I'm a garlic and onion lover, so I'd probably saute some onion or shallot and garlic before throwing the spinach in. :) Best of all, it sounds really quick to make!
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).

Notsosicklygirl, you're right... Pecorino was sheep's cheese.... it was the feta that was the goat cheese... Still it was delicious. I haven't eaten spinach in years because my Colitis was so bad that if I tried to eat it, it would immediately exit my body one way or another.

That sounds great, though I'd probably use sauteed garlic instead of hot sauce. Personal preference.
