What did you eat today?

Hi Everyone, I'm always curious as to what other people eat with Ibd. I work with a lady that eats lots of stuff I could never eat and vice versa. Today for me, breakfast was 2 coffee and a protein shake. Lunch was leftover roast pork and potato, snack was banana, and dinner was chicken, rice, and juicer.

Today for lunch, I went to a restaurant that accommodates to any food allergies. I had pesto captavvi with fusuli noodles minus tomato, cream and parmesan. I had gluten free pretzels. I had chicken, brown rice and hard boiled eggs for dinner.

That sounds lovely, making me hungry!

Corn Flakes and toast for breakfast. I had some chicken for lunch, just by itself as I didn't have anything else. I made some beef stew (with mushrooms, peppers, garlic, onion, carrots and parsnips) that I had for dinner along with my favourite ingredient: Azathioprine. And then a strawberry yogurt. Yum.

I eat anything really, though I know potatoes make things a little worse.

So far a protein/vitamin powder mixed with one cup of water and a banana. And as par for the course of late....not looking good. Last night I had to meet family at a restaurant for supper and after looking through the menu I decided to pass eating anything. It just isn't worth the pain right now. I'm sitting at my desk right now with my heating pad from the little I have eaten today as it is.

I seem to tolerate them fine. But I only have a handful, maybe 8-10 or so, a day.
Why? Do you have problems with them?

I'm just putting it out there, that I had a mocha, hot cross bun. It was amazing and didn't make me ill ^_^ so that's always a positive.

*edit - I love coffee, but almost always makes me ill, so having a coffee-flavoured something, is always a bonus.

My normal coffee in the morning (to poop), sour dough bread with rosemary and salt with olive oil and balsamic for dipping, and just had a bacon sandwich for dinner. Yesterday i had a steak soba from wagamama and that was it allday. So i would say my days can be quite varied. Im also not one for snacking at all.

Yum that sounds good. I recently read that cashews are the least offensive nut to the colon. Which is good since I like them....well eventually.

I'm hooked on my Carrot, Ginger and Cashew soup by Pacific company I think. It's amazing I get a 1/2 cup as a meal right now.

Hi Bufford,

I wish I could eat pork. No dice though! Oh well. I like vegetables so I guess that's a good thing as I am 95% vegetarian since a year ago. The change in diet made me feel a lot better! I can still have cheese once in a while so that's cool.
