Living with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis often comes with food sensitivities. Eating certain things – whether it's spicy food, nuts, or dairy – may cause symptoms to act up. And when abdominal pain and urgency hit, we may wonder what ingredients may be to blame.

Food sensitivities and dietary restrictions vary greatly from person to person, and there is no one diet recommended for Crohn's or ulcerative colitis. But here a few gluten-free recipes that might work for you – all from people who cook, eat, and live with IBD!
