DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. It is terrible, and completely not as advertised. The title led me to think that this was a book of recipes for those suffering flareups of Crohn's or ulcerative colitis. However, most of the recipes have ingredients that are NOT good for IBD patients at least during flare-ups. Red meat, frying, spices and insoluble fiber are spread throughout these recipes and anyone who knows anything about this knows that these are not advised. Maybe these things work for you Brenda, and that's great, but they don't work for everyone and at a minimum, your book does not really give full disclosure on this. I would suggest that the next edition have a better more accurate title and better disclaimers on the individual to individual variation in ability to tolerate the types of food ingredients I have noted here. For a really GOOD book for IBD patients, I'd refer you all to What to Eat with IBD by Tracie Dalessandro, MS, RD, CDN. She really gets it right. Happy eating and recovery all.

I have been using recipes out of this cookbook for 3 months now. My stomach has been about 85% better than before I used these recipes. They are very easy, tasty, and nutricious. The rest of my family even eats the food with me. I have ordered this cookbook for 2 of my friends who have stomach problems as well and they love it. I love this book and would recommend it to anyone.

A little disappointed. I thought the recipes would be more designed for Crohn's, but they are a lot of typical recipes. Several ingredients are on my "do not" list. Enjoyed Brenda's story. It took over 7 months for me to get diagnosed. The recipes are for the most part very good.
