How Foods and Fats Can Impact Crohn's Disease

Start by replacing foods. It's easier than you think

Bringing good fats into your nutritional program isn’t as hard as you might think.  One simple way to do so is to limit or eliminate fried and processed foods from your diet.  Replace that greasy chicken fried steak with baked salmon.  Try using nut or seed butters as a way to consume seeds without causing irritation to your digestive tract.  Experiment with avocados.  Use pesto or hummus in lieu of cheese on burgers and sandwiches.  Eat olives or dark chocolate as an energy boosting snack.  Add anchovies or sardines to pastas and pizzas.  Increasingly incorporate more plant and fish derived fats into your diet than those from other animal sources.
