I think salad is great for colitis. No, I don’t think salad is bad.
But I didn’t always think that way. Ever since starting the SCD diet, a few things are for certain. And one of those is that I eat a whole bunch more salad than ever before. It surely isn’t because I am turning into a vegetarian, and it’s not because I watched the Food Inc. movie and got all creepped out on some things.
The reason I am chowing so many salads these days is because ever since August 11th 2009, I went on the SCD diet and salad for me just makes sense, and I think it tastes pretty good. As long as you do one thing. ADD SOME GRILLED MEATS TO IT. Steak, chicken, fish if you like that on your salad, I don’t know, something, especially since there’s good protein in that too.
I remember when I wondered if it was a bad idea to eat salad with my colitis because it might be hard on my ulcerative colitis intestines. But, for me, its seems to be just fine. It also finds a way to turn into a nice hard poop quite often, and that is just great isn’t it.
So here is a video about dinner tonight, a nice little grilled chicken salad, with tiny SCD cheat as there is some brown sugar in the salad dressing, and probably a minor minor cheat somewhere else if you count the 1 milligram of blue cheese I dropped in while making the salad at the salad bar.

I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
