Foods to Eat During a Crohn’s Disease Flare

Besides a high water intake (3-4L daily), here are some foods to help you through a flare. I normally stick to these foods 80% of the time, even when not in a flare.

Foods I eat during a flare:

  • Soups (dairy-free) such as organic tomato soup (which are often dairy free)
  • White rice (avoid whole grain)
  • White bread (avoid whole grain)
  • Eggs (or egg whites)
  • Salmon or any kind of fish
  • Bananas
  • Porridge
  • Cream of Rice
  • Applesauce
  • Cooked carrots
  • Potatoes

Foods I eat during a serious flare:

  • Broths
  • Gatorade
  • Tea (ginger with turmeric, green, etc)
  • Jell-O

Foods I won’t eat during a flare by some others do:

  • Creamed soups
  • Ensure
  • Ginger ale
  • Kefir
