I'm getting into the holiday spirit! My favorite thing is my mom's sweet potato casserole. It has gobs of brown sugar. Yummy! I can only eat it once a year b/c afterwards I will be bent over from the gas pain! Totally worth it...ha ha!

So share....what's your favorite Thanksgiving Day treat to eat?

I like it all! My MIL normally cooks dinner and she is procrastinating about buying the turkey. So I told her that she just HAS to cook turkey this year. She so gets my Uc that it's funny....but she said yeah I guess I will since I know you can't eat turkey for the rest of the year that you make up for on Thanksgiving day! Oh so true.......I LOVE turkey and even though it doesn't agree with me, I sacrifice a day or two for T-day :)

Mmmmm stuffing, homemade, the best kind.
 
 
Dx:  2006
 
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence.
 
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
 
Added: tumeric and probiotics.
