Between stress management and diet, my colitis has been fairly under control, but I sometimes find it difficult to eat properly. A lot of really healthy things actually make my stomache hurt. Like raw broccoli or red onions. I've only just discovered this, and knowing this now, it would have saved me a world of hurt!
This new "raw" food fad diet sounds great and everything, but please don't push it on me! It would probably kill me. Not literally at this point for myself, but for others, it could be a serious health setback if they were to try that diet. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying there is anything wrong with certain diets,
but it is very important to know and to do what is best for your body.
After some serious tears over the onions, I started off cooking the garlic, shallots and onions
over medium heat in the olive oil.
One they were browned, I threw in the red pepper with the balsamic vinegar to sweeten the peppers.
Then I threw in the carrots to get a little extra cooking time.
There you have it- my favourite soup recipe.
