Here are some dishes that I’ve been able to enjoy over the years. All of these are vegan and all were consumed while I had Crohn’s Disease. I can enjoy most, if not all, of these meals with my ostomy.
I hesitate to post these photo, knowing that many of my friends with IBD can’t enjoy food the way I have been since getting my ostomy.
With active Crohn’s, I wasn’t even able to drink water without being in tremendous pain, so part of me hopes that if eating has been hard for you, that things will eventually get better.
For the lucky ones who don’t have IBD, I hope these dishes illustrate just how nutritious and enjoyable a plant-based diet can be!
