Favourite Comfort Food.

What is your favourite comfort food? The thing that picks you up when you are down. It doesnt have to be crohns friendly.

I love homemade macaroni and cheese with bacon. So comforting.

Vietnamese Pho. The kind where they put the raw beef into the soup bowl and the heat from the soup cooks it. I love the basil, and sprouts in it.

Lindor Chocolates.

OMG! I forgot about my Mom's Brown Chicken (which sadly I can't eat anymore) - breaded chicken cutlets slow cooked in a sauce she makes with Campbell's golden chicken soup. Really simple but a delicious staple at all family functions.

Chocolate! Unfortunately most chocolate causes me problems, but not 3 Musketeers bars. I think because they're so light and fluffy and contain hardly any actual chocolate, but whatever the reason, I can eat those with no pain. I always try to keep some on hand, but I ran out recently. I was having a bad day at work earlier this week, and was talking with a co-worker about some of my food triggers including the chocolate issue (my co-worker has UC so he understands!). The next day, my candy dish on my desk was full of 3 Musketeers bars, compliments of my co-worker. How nice is that!

I love chocolate but it is poison to me unfortunately, & causes allergic reaction plus a Crohn's flare, so I never eat it.

Second favourite is Cappuccino coffee made with soya milk. I only allow myself one a week, because coffee (including decaff) is not good for Crohn's.
