About Food


Welcome to our recipe section where we will be constantly adding and updating our collection of gut friendly foods!

We know that everyone has different foods that agree/disagree with them so we will have a variety of recipes including gluten free, dairy free, low fibre and more. Please let us know how you get on and if there are any special diets/recipes you would like us to include and we will do our best to help!

While your diet is not a cause of your disease and changing your diet will not cure you, paying special attention to what you eat can help reduce and control your IBD symptoms.

It can be hard to figure out what food irritates your gut but the best way is to keep a food diary.  Write down every time you eat and any symptoms you experience.  You may find that certain foods make your symptoms worse.

During a flare up it can be helpful to:

  • Eat smaller meals at more frequent intervals
  • Reduce the amount of greasy or fried foods in your diet
  • Limit consumption of milk or milk products
  • Stick to a low fibre diet

While Crohn’s and Colitis are both evolving conditions and the symptoms you experience may change over time, understanding how different foods affect your digestive system can better prepare you to manage your condition and its effects on your life.
