IBD Dinner Recipes

The eternal question: What's for dinner?

Regardless of whether you have Crohn's or ulcerative colitis, figuring out what to make for dinner (again . . .) can feel like a slog. Throw in the food sensitivities and restrictions that come with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and the task of dinner becomes even harder. But alas, we must eat.

And while our diets may feel extremely limited, our IBD Patient Leaders have cooked up a variety of delicious and diverse dinner recipes for those living with Crohn's or UC – right from their own kitchens.

Everyone's IBD is different

Of course, when it comes to cooking with IBD, we're all working from a different set of ingredients. Food sensitivities and dietary restrictions vary greatly from person to person, and there is no single diet recommended for Crohn's or ulcerative colitis. But here are a few dinner recipes that might work for you – all from people who cook, eat, and live with IBD!
