1.0 out of 5 stars Title is a misnomer!, March 21, 2009
This review is from: How to Cook for Crohn's and Colitis: More than 200 healthy, delicious recipes the whole family will love (Paperback)
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.
