What I really like about foods like this is that not only does it work well for my colitis, but you can change it up on the spicing as you like. Salt, pepper and whatever else sounds good for you are pretty much the only rules. Heck, you can even do some different variations by making some separate meat fillers for the same meal to change things up. It’s really up to you.
It’s easy to get comfortable in remission, and it’s easy to rationalize consuming things that you love that may not be the best for you. I hope this healing continues and that I’ve solved my problem – coffee definitely irritates my sensitive gut.

Here are some main points I think are important for anybody living with UC or for relatives living near colitis, maybe some of this thinking will resonate with you too:

I was feeling very hopeless until I stumbled across this website. Thank you Adam and thank you to all who post! It is wonderful to be able to read all the posts and find people who get it. The humor is terrific. Brothers and sisters in poop!
In the beginning the blood was the scariest thing. I had cramping, too regular BM and total exhaustion, but this fresh blood leaving my body every time I sat on the toilet really got to me.
I’m super excited for this week ahead, and most importantly I am hoping to see a nice log roll down the river in the next day or two. My colitis symptoms have finally re-appeared. It is ever so slight at the moment, but I’m sure that if I don’t make some changes to how I eat(and DRINK more importantly), I’m going to find myself in a flare up in a week or two. And we all know that’s no fun. My video explains the start of my battle plan.
