What I Liked:
I made several of the recipes, myself. I can definitely see how they are simplified for the lifestyle of adding foods to test your body's response to them. I found that they would be just fine to make for family meals. It's not the type of cooking where the person with colitis would have to make a separate meal from what their family ate. I liked that a lot. I made the Stroganoff, which I liked. We also made the Rice Pudding, which I thought was fun, and could even be a palate of-sorts to add more foods to. Could be lots of fun. We added dried blueberries, and I enjoyed it a lot. I tried the Sweet Potato, which I'd never tried before and will definitely make again. And I made the Orange Pancakes (which are like crepes), which were great. I even had a big bag of oranges I'd just bought, so I used fresh orange juice, which made it just that much better. I highly recommend this cookbook to anyone who has colitis or knows someone who has it. She's also marked the recipes that would work well for weight loss, which I found helpful. Definitely check it out.
Also, $1 of each cookbook sale goes to the Jadyn Fred Foundation to help support children in need of financial assistance for medical costs outside insurance coverage! You can buy a copy here.
