A while back you all might recall that I wrote a post talking about the problems I had with eating the standard ‘boil and serve’ mac and cheese. At the time I was at a loss because nothing seemed to help the problem, not even my standard ‘eat this and you most likely won’t have diarrhea today’ foods (banana, yogurt, and tea). Now, thanks to the suggestions by many, I think I have solved the problem. The solution, for me at least, was eating all natural mac and cheese, specifically the Annie’s Homegrown stuff. I also use organic milk and butter when making it, so as not to completely ruin the ‘all natural’ meal. The stuff taste great and doesn’t cost much more than the regular mac and cheese I used to buy. Even better, I don’t have to make a special trip when planning to buy it because it can be found at Target and Hy-Vee, which is where I do all my shopping. Because of this I have also started to wonder how an ‘all natural’ diet would affect a person with Crohn’s Disease, especially one who suffers frequent flare-ups. Do all the chemicals we put in our bodies thanks to the foods we eat play a role in how severe the disease can be? It is something I’ve never really thought about, or asked my doctor about, yet seems like it could be important. Another thing I never really thought about was the milk I drink. For a long time people have wondered why I never cut milk out of my diet. The reason was simple: it has never caused me any problems. Maybe the reason for this is because I’ve always used organic milk (and creamers for my coffee)? Something to think about.
