Nourishment Notes


Bananas bind water, lessening diarrhea. This makes them a great flare-friendly food.


Cinnamon may help to lower inflammation in your body, reducing symptoms associated with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Old Fashioned Oats

Oat flour provides a gluten-free source of soluble fiber, an important nutrient for gut health. It also slows digestion, minimizing bathroom occurrences.
