1.Beyond a Bland Diet
You can still enjoy what you eat if you have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Bland foods may help when you have a flare. But as you recover, eat a well-balanced variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, and proteins. Staying on a bland diet, eating only foods like applesauce and saltines, can slow your recovery. You need calories, protein, and other nutrients for your body to heal.
