Dude35, i cook my potatoes. raw potatoes have the most RS but i'm not eating raw potatoes- bleh. i bake it at 350 F for an hour wrapped in foil and poke holes in it. after it has cooled a little, i take the skin off and chop it up with vinegar, salt, pepper, dill, olive oil, bubbie's pickles, and mustard. it's tolerable but i don't really enjoy the taste. i've read if you let it cool for 24 hours then it has a TON of RS. same goes for sweet potatoes. i usually don't let mine cool for that long because it tastes even worse. haha
SG, i ordered 2 bags of potato starch because you have to (weird minimum order rule). should last me a while. it was funny. i was reading amazon reviews (that's my thing) on the potato starch and one person said "it makes everything taste like potatoes!!" pahaha i wanna write back "no!!! really??? that makes no sense." haha
i watched a few of the videos on your GI doctor from Oz's show and also read her interviews. she seems great!! it's cool she has been able to help so many patients with diet. i will do any combo of med/diet/supplements as long as i feel good on it. obviously, it would be great to not need meds but i know how this disease works (well, scratch that, i DON'T know how this disease works!)
i've never had plantain chips. i should look for them. i usually don't snack a lot but they would be nice as a crunchy topping for foods- maybe chicken tenders or fish.
ahh yes, i can see how your supp/med plan adds up very fast. that's how i am too!! i've tried to really simplify things after my last doctor's appt. i had been having a lot of cramps and he suggested i stop the iron and calcium. the cramps were gone in about
i don't know if you know this but my dad has UC. he was diagnosed at 23 and has been smoking ever since AND in remission (he's 48). the past 2 weeks, he's been cutting down on smoking and low and behold, he has BLOOD!!!!! i am honestly not sad at all because he has been cruel and ruthless to me ever since i was diagnosed- always saying i am causing it or it's in my head. never once trying to help me or show any compassion. i haven't spoken to him in a while but my sister told him what i've been doing. i told her he should try the nicotine patch to see if that helps and add in some RS.
