Nourishment Notes


Tomatoes are an excellent source of many nutrients, including folate and vitamin A, both of which are especially important for those with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Olive oil contains monounsaturated fats. This type of fat may help to reduce inflammation associated with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Remission Remix

  • Replace Onion Powder

    Replace onion powder with diced onion. Sauté until golden in olive oil, then add additional sauce ingredients.
