Crohn's Disease Recipes - Helpful Tips

Updated on June 22, 2010

If you are starting a new eating plan to see how it will affect your Crohn’s Disease there are a few things that are helpful to know first to make succeeding much easier. When I first looked at changing my diet I really had no idea what to do and I had to largely figure it out for myself.

Having several different Crohn's Disease recipes for the eating plan that you want to follow is a good idea so that you aren’t too restricted with what you can eat. This is one mistake that I made; I went and tried to start a new diet but really had no idea what kind of recipes to make.

It was quite difficult coming up with different recipes without feeling like my diet was really restricted. In fact there were a lot of foods that would work perfectly fine with my new eating plan, but I wasn't aware of them. Start by doing some research into the plan you want to follow and this will really help with the level of success you can achieve on a new eating plan.

Knowing a fair amount of recipes before you start making each meal will help you keep your options open. It makes the eating plan seem much easier and not so daunting. You may also be helped by a person who has already made these changes to their diet or someone who has a lot of experience with following this kind of diet.

There are a number of nutritionists and therapists you can turn to in order to get some advice on the diet you should be following, this will help you avoid some common mistakes that others have made. Many of these therapists have their own recipes or resources that you can use.

You may discover, as I did, that your diet may not need to change as much as you think, I was still able to make meals very similar to those I ate before, with some ingredients changed.

For example many years ago I used to eat meat, I liked the sausage casserole that was made at home when I was there. This type of meat is terrible for someone with Crohn's Disease, but I would enjoy the dish and then deal with the trouble caused by eating it.

What I have found out though is that I could make a casserole the same but instead of having meat in there I could fill it with vegetables instead. It wasn’t really the meat that I was really liked it was the flavor of the sauces and the dish itself, so using vegetables and just leaving the meat out I had a great dish that I could eat and that I really liked.

It also did not make my symptoms flare up and cause me to get sick. There are many options for making some small changes to your favorite dishes that will help you feel and stay healthy while still enjoying the dishes you love. My sausage casserole is merely one example of a simple change, but you can easily use your imagination to come up with more.

The internet has provided us with an outlet to a worldwide community and with a little research on your part, you can easily find tips, recipes, and helpful tricks. This will provide you with the necessary tools to succeed on any diet you decide to follow and also come up with lots of recipes that taste just as good as all your old favorites.
