So for the past year or so, he has been on medication, for his IBS and RA, and things have been significantly better for him. When he was diagnosed, he wasn't given any food restrictions- they assumed the medicine would be enough to control his symptoms.
Do you and your spouse talk about bowel movements freely as if you're just giving directions to the store?! Ha. Maybe it's just us. :)
However, he still isn't 100%, so to speak... and the more research we did, the more that led us to this Gluten-Free point. A high percentage of people diagnosed with Crohn's also have Celiac Disease. It took a lot of reading for me to determine the difference between the two. From what I understand, and I could be wrong, but Crohn's can be controlled with medicine, while Celiac is controlled mainly by a GF diet.
So..... for the next two weeks, Chris, Haven, and me- are going 100% GF. I'll post recipes we try and then I'll be posting a review at the end. We just gotta see what all of this fuss is about! :) I don't want him to eat different from Haven and I, so we're doing this together.
This might be more difficult for us than what we're assuming. We are not adventurous eaters... We don't like quinoa, weird kinds of rice, and any kind of cheese besides Kraft slices. Ha. But our goal is to stick to this for two weeks... and share more poop stories. :)
