I can’t say enough about my morning breakfast. Back in the days when I was going through 10-20 bathroom breaks per day, I was always wondering what to have for breakfast to start the day. Well, let me tell you about what I do every morning. It is really really simple.
One banana, frozen strawberries, frozen blueberries, some peanut butter, and some natural OJ(not from concentrate OJ). If you are feeling pretty good with your colitis and not experiencing any symptoms, feel free to add some honey to your smoothie. Honey is said to be a bit of a more advanced food for people who are following the SCD diet for treating the UC.
Then, put all of that right into the blender, and about one minute later you are all set. It is that simple. I have been having one each morning about 5 times per week since August 2009. It is really great.
On a side note a great colitis breakfast will get you through the morning is making a SCD diet smoothie with pineapple juice instead of orange juice. It tastes great and it might have a little bit less acid which for some people can help the ulcerative colitis.
One thing to make sure of is to buy and read the SCD diet book Breaking the Vicious Cycle. There are some rules of the road for people who are interested in changing your colitis diet, and you want to be sure to follow the intro diet before moving on to more advanced foods like peanut butter.
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.
