Serving a guest with Chrone's
A man with Chrohn's disease will be attending our annual Christmas Eve dinner, and I'm looking for ideas for how to feed him within the traditional meal.
The annual meal consists of an Irish soup made from smoked salmon, bacon, potatoes and heavy cream.
Salad and a good bread round off the soup. Christmas cookies are usually served afterwards with coffee or tea.
I was thinking of including a couple of cooked vegetable dishes such as steamed broccoli with some sort of sauce and an Indian dish made of wilted spinach, peas and tofu in place of the Indian paneer cheese.
I have been putting together Christmas stockings, and learned that chocolate and fresh oranges won't work for Jason. Anyone have suggestions for treats I could put into his stocking that wouldn't be irritating to his system?
I will appreciate any and all suggestions for how I can make Jason feel comfortable and fed properly.
