I really am Craving one of the following
Sausage Biscuit
Gravy Biscuit
Chicken Biscuit

anything that composes of a normally good breakfast!
As much as I've messed with diet, I don't really see a DRASTIC difference.

Can you guys tolerate any of that food?
What foods do you typically enjoy for breakfast?

I am challenged by being a college student & these Gluten Free waffles are getting old very quickly.

If you feel diet mod. doesn't work for you why ask for opinions? It's your gut who'll be digesting it, what does your gut think? My gut would prefer hash browns (loves potatoes) whereas biscuits sit like concrete because gluten in general is not liked.

I don't eat much breakfast generally, just a piece of GF white toast and coffee and green tea. When in college (eons ago) didn't eat much then either, probably cereal or oatmeal but that was pre-UC and I could eat EVERYTHING. Sorry you have this disease at your age. If I had UC at college age I'd have the sausage minus the biscuit, protein is very tolerated, has minerals and vitamins and easily digested. There are some great chicken sausages available in groceries (so you don't eat too much red meat). Do you cook at all or just microwave?

Food tolerances vary wildly from person to person. My general advice is to EAT REAL FOOD. If you can't list the ingredients in what you're eating, probably safer to pass. Sausage for example, what's in it? Is it the pork, the liquid smoke, nitrates, garlic, or something else making you have symptoms?? When trying to identify triggers its best to eat whole foods (I.e., pork chop instead of sausage) then, if that's ok, add another whole food to it, like pork chop with apples, then maybe porkchop with apples and sage, or whatever.

Breakfast choices? Try oatmeal (not instant), or eggs and shred some potatoes and fry in a bit of butter, or maybe eggs with toast?

My two cents.
Diagnosed IBD indeterminate. Pentasa 2g/day. Salofalk enemas and suppositories (up and down as needed). Metamucil caps daily, critical care 50 billion probiotic daily. Previous: asacol HD (switched when I started pooping them out whole).

I usually do scrambled eggs and fruit, but I have been loving a smoothie lately. I use bone broth protein, banana, frozen berries, and coconut milk- I have been adding in l glutamine and a greens powder, plus my VSL. Yum....think it's time for one now

I often wonder how long people actually stay on a diet to notice improvements. I had to stick to my diet protocol for 2 months straight before noticing substantial results and another 2 months to finally witness "drastic" changes lol

Nowadays if I'm not doing a morning liquid diet of pressed juices or smoothies, I have gluten free oats with chia seeds and fruits.

My breakfast....a jumbo soft boiled egg, rye toast, an orange or apple or half of each and coffee.

Protein for sure. I don't do oats or boiled whole grains or bananas because Id have severe gas all day.

*Heather* I give suggestions, do with them what you will.

Over many years of experimentation Ive found oatmeal, buttered toast, an occasional egg, herbal tea and orange juice to be the least harmful and most nourishing of breakfast foods.
NEVER coffee which is like drinking battery acid when you have UC, wasn't easy giving it up, but it made my life so much better.

I might not have given diet a chance. Its hard being in college!

Not many UC friendly foods are cheap and convenient!
So i was just looking at your guys suggestions!

I may feel like diet doesn't change but I haven't stayed on it super long so maybe its time to stick to a diet.

Im starting Humira in 3 Days (Feb 5th) hoping that puts me in remission!

I can eat pretty much anything as diet doesn't seem to impact my UC symptoms at all. Weekdays i stick to fruit (bananas, pineapple, melon, etc) for breakfast. Weekends are big breakfasts, like homemade waffles and bacon, or we'll switch things up and have homefries, crepes and a variety of things. Usually accompanied by earl gray tea or chia.

Good luck with the humira.

You know you have UC when you're confident you don't have to poop, hop in the car, get 1/4 of a mile down the road, and have to stop and poop at a dunkin donuts.

I usually have hardboiled eggs, bacon, and sausage/tuna/salmon. Depends what I have in the freezer or in the pantry as far as meat goes. I also have a hot cup of bone broth if there is some in the fridge.
