Herb Roasted Carrots
This is one of my absolute favorite recipes, partly because it is so simple, and also because it is easy on my digestive system while being full of vitamins and nutrients.
Many IBD patients cannot tolerate raw fruits and veggies, so by roasting carrots in the oven, you are able to seal in the nutritional value while keeping them soft enough to digest. These are great as a side when paired with a lean protein, or can be enjoyed as a meal in itself on days that your belly is not 100%.
This is also gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan, so it is suitable for different dietary needs!
