Believe it or not, spicy foods tend to calm my stomach when I'm feeling ill, as does some soda (mostly Coca-Cola). I have a strange ritual of getting a burrito from the nearby Moe's every time I have IV therapy.

As for other things:

brown/white rice
pasta (sauce is okay, too)
grilled or baked chicken (never, never, never fried)
most vegetables
most beans (I feel like this is a strange one, too)
soy milk
tea

Anything sweet or fried is the devil during a flare. And although it's one of my favorite things in the whole world, coffee tends to make me feel a tad bit worse. It's the one thing I absolutely refuse to give up. What's a life worth without having miserable habits?

seeing as i'm new to this and have yet to meet with a dietitian, how does everyone know what causes their flare ups? sometimes when i eat things i get reactions right again, other times it takes a while, and there aren't too many times i JUST eat a fruit and wait 3 hours to see what happens. how did everyone discover the foods that are safe and bad?

and to add, the only known safe food i have are bananas. gotta love 'em!

Cordillia: Try keeping a food diary. That way you can track what you consume and your symptoms over time, and you'll be able to see if there are patterns (for example, it took me awhile to figure out that garlic is one of my trigger foods, since it's in a lot of different things). There's an entry in the Wiki section of the forum regarding diary inclusions. Good luck!

safe food, well i ave none. i eat what i crave because i dont eat junk. y body rarely craves it when i do crave junk i swap it out with something healthier. i usually stick to home made bone broth though.
STRAWBERRIES BAD!!!! unless they are skinned, and not in flairup
at least if i ave company in the bathroom if i run into issues. i swear my cats are terrified for my safety they always follow me comfort me and keep me company no matter where i go. even if no other creature dares to be near


i usually fast during the first week of my flareup. dry fast first for 24 hours followed by 3 days of nothing but water followed by a week of juicing,tea and home made organic broth. after that, blended foods then soft foods then steamed foods then regular semi raw diet.

Want to add some new safe foods (but I'm not better in general, unfortunately, just have a very good nutritionist now): Plain yoghurt, quark, cottage cheese (all with reduced lactose!!!), also spelt bread (not too much), spelt pasta (yay, not only rice pasta) and more vegetables. I always combine carbohydrates, fats and protein in one meal, helps a lot for me!!!

This thread is so helpful in working out what people generally can and can't eat!

When flaring (like right now), practically nothing but homemade tomato soup,
homemade white bread, jelly. Brandy and soda
The rest of the time, most things (tho my favourite strong cheeses and smoked fish come with an automatic penalty)
Interesting - I notice a lot of people- like me - eat tomato soup/sauce in a flare. Yet I've heard it's supposed to be bad for Crohnies. Not this one!

Hi everyone,

I know that severity levels differ significantly when it comes to Crohn's, which makes it hard to generalise. In any case, I'd like to get an idea of what you guys consider to be your "safe" foods.

Perhaps by sharing we can all try something new and hopefully have some success.

Cheers,

Winemaker

Raw tomatoes, with their acids and seeds, are bad for me most of the time. Tomato soup and sauces, etc.. are OK. The seeds are not there and I think the acidic stuff must cook out.

I stay well away from anything with seeds or skins. Chicken and fish are my safe meats, with some ground beef recipes like meat loaf once in a while. Deep fried foods such as kentucky fried chicken can be tollerated once in awhile, pizza too only in very small quantities. Mellons are fine, as are bananas and oranges. I keep sweets and junk food to a bare minimum.
