You have what???….My journey with UC

Ohhhh that looks healthy… My IBD brain says otherwise


To the average person I eat pretty darn healthy. In the IBD world, my brain says this:

“Avocado-yes!, strawberries… Well they have seeds so be careful, ohh and and the hot grain cereal, it has the word grain in it… Soo really it should not be an option. Bananas are good but were they brown enough bc too green isnt that great either. At least your using real butter but it does have cream and well am I dairy sensative too this week? ”

I gobbled this up still completely satisfied because I feel I need the energy for the day and I push the IBD Google diet demons aside.  But for me this is insight as to how my brain is turning for every meal. I do believe what I eat has an effect on my colitis. Do I believe it caused my IBD or will make it go away miraculously, no. But I feel it does play an important role.
