How do you do diet planning with multiple allergic foods? I am having hard time with meal planning. I am the main cook in my family. My one daughter has digestive issues and mental health issues. My other daughter has bad mental health issues.

Food Intolerances : Gluten, casein, soy, and avenin, (avenin is the prolamin in oats, which is equivalent to the gluten in wheat), beef, grapes, peanuts, cashews, almonds, (but nut butters seem OK except for peanuts), citric acid, chocolate, and agar.

Hi Charleen,

Welcome to our Internet family. We consider ourselves a family because no one truly understands this disease unless they have it.

Everyone has somewhat different different food sensitivities, but there is a hierarchy of foods that are the most likely offenders (which you have already listed). In addition to those, we have to minimize fiber and sugar while we are recovering because fiber irritates our already-inflamed gut, and when our intestines are inflamed we aren't able to produce normal amounts of the enzymes needed to digest most sugars/carbs. Artificial sweeteners are a no-go, because most of us here react to them. All vegetables should be peeled (to minimize fiber) and over-cooked (to make them easier to digest). Fruit should be minimized because of the sugars (fructose is especially difficult to digest while we are reacting) and fiber. Most of us however, can handle bananas OK. Contrary to what the medical "experts" claim, most of us are sensitive to oats, even when it's certified to be gluten-free.

It's best to not be concerned about trying to eat a balanced diet while recovering, because most nutrients go right through us, anyway, if our disease is active. After we are in remission, then we can begin to slowly add more veggies and some fruits back into our diet, and balance things out again. Eventually (after some healing) we are able to eat raw vegetables and fruit again. There are some guidelines for meals and other recovery tips in the section at the link below:


And some diet guidelines are available for download at the Microscopic Colitis Foundation website. Here's a direct link to the download:


Incidentally, virtually everyone who has an IBD (including MC) is magnesium deficient, because the disease depletes magnesium, and so do the medications prescribed by doctors to treat the disease. Chronic magnesium deficiency also causes neurological issues, including, but not limited to schizophrenia, bipolar disorders, peripheral neuropathy, and many others. I can cite medical references on that if you want to read more about it.

I hope that some of this is helpful. Again, welcome aboard, and please feel free to ask anything.


It is suspected that some of the hardest material known to science can be found in the skulls of GI specialists who insist that diet has nothing to do with the treatment of microscopic colitis.

welcome to our group (family) sympathies that you had to find us

Tex has provided the links that I would, it can be overwhelming at first, as it is a big change. my suggestion is, take it a meal at a time.
work out safe breakfast options and once they are in the routine, then work out safe dinner options, then move onto lunch/snacks etc.

some other good resources are Dave Asprey Bulletproof eating plan. or the Terry Wahls eating plan
both of these people had chronic illnesses and have had great recovery via these eating plans.

an article that may help is this one - nutritional deficiencies are main cause for most health issues - and in the case of your daughter with mental issues, this may provide some good info on some areas to investigate (ie get zinc/copper blood testing done etc) and do some good supplementation

for both of your daughters, they will benefit from good quality Vit D3 and magnesium

hope this helps
