Prosciutto-Wrapped Halloumi And Asparagus
I love all three of these ingredients, so it makes sense that I would love this delicious snack! Plus, it’s super quick and easy to make! Suitable for a light bite at a party, or to add other things too, to make a meal.
It's important to note that there is very little I have to avoid now food-wise with ulcerative colitis, since my permanent ileostomy. I can eat any vegetable, as long as I chew thoroughly and I have something with it such as pasta, potato, rice or bread.
I don’t have a problem tolerating meat or cheese, but I prefer fish. The only thing that causes me any pain or discomfort are things with air trapped in them, such as whipped cream, mousse, or carbonated drinks.
