Crohns and Colitis Breakfast

Crohn's Disease Ulcerative Colitis Meal Plan 1 

We are all different and some foods that I can tolerate you may not. A crohn's or colitis diet is highly individual so please experiment and add or replace ingredients that don't agree with you

Breakfast:

Oats and banana pancakes.

I know when we hear the word fiber it can cause some heart palpatations but oats are a great source of soluble fiber and not the nasty insoluble fiber that you will find in fruit and veg. Insoluble fiber draws water into the colon and for IBD sufferers that is not ideal. However oats contain soluble fiber which absorbs water and digests over a few hours which should help keep your energy levels up and be easy on the gut compared to raw veggies. Bananas are also super easy to digest and packed full of energy. Sprinkle with cinnamon which is in my mind is a super food. It's medicinal properties are legendary so its a must for any meal you can squeeze it into. 

Directions. 

Blend oats, milk (or almond milk) and banana in a blender till you get desired consistency. Fry on a non-stick frying pan. Top with cinnamon and enjoy. It's super quick and easy and loaded with energy. Plus it tastes delicious.

 

Lunch:

Grilled Salmon drizzled with honey.

For health benefits Salmon sells itself. Its rich in Omega-3, antioxidants and numerous other goodies. More importantly for IBD patients its an excellent source of B vitamins and it helps reduce inflammation markers.

Simply grill 1 salmon fillet drizzle with honey and serve with a side salad of your choosing. I'm not really a fan of fish myself but I do love the combination of Salmon and honey it makes for a delicious and healthy lunch. 

Dinner:

Roasted Chicken and Potato Bake.

This is super easy to make and super healthy. Its basically chicken drumsticks and potatoes thrown into a baking dish and flung into the oven. Rather than go over the recipe I have linked to the video were I first came across the recipe.
