In Crohn's disease Beating is difficult to eat - so I often switch to drinking to even consume calories and important nutrients.
Especially in the push I tolerate only certain foods, which are all characterized by easy digestibility. Since these also unfortunately contain only little nutrients, I put on gentle intestinal power foods with many minerals, good oils and calories.
Often I make myself smoothies, consisting of:
- Greens such as salad, kale, spinach
- peeled hemp, chia seeds
- barley grass
- Cinnamon, turmeric
The ingredients and the quantity can vary.
Certain ingredients, such as blueberries, hemp & chia seeds and turmeric in the body have anti-inflammatory, so they are definitely in it. The active ingredients are so-called phytochemicals such as anthocyanin in the blueberry, curcumin in turmeric
The hemp and the avocado contain healthy oils, such as alfa-linolenic acid, which are also anti-inflammatory as omega-3 fatty acid. The barley grass and greens provide a full load of important minerals and trace elements including calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, selenium and zinc.
