Hi gang. I am back from Ireland (the trip was good - lots of fun and no UC problems, thankfully), and just received my copy of a new cookbook just published this month specifically about cooking with IBD (as opposed to IBS). I haven't looked at it yet, so I don't know if it is good, but for those of you like me who enjoy cooking, I wanted to at least pass on the info. The book is called "How to cook for Chron's and Colitis" by Brenda Roscher. Though I can't vouch for this cookbook, I do have other IBS books I can recommend, if anyone is interested. Just let me know.

im not so sure about the diet/food thing for colitis. i guess everyone is different, but i had a dietician for a while and was on so many different types of diets including those terrible liquid foods (to give my colon 'a rest') etc... and i tell you what - my colitis never got worse or improved due to the food i ate. i had 2 weeks on a no fiber/low residue diet and after that with no change in my condition --> i eat what i want when i want. i figure, if its gonna hurt anyway, i might as well enjoy my food cuz i really like good food.
i do know people that are affected by food, so i guess it is trial and error. good luck with the cookbook.
let me know if there are any tasty recipes!
