Marnina and I are proud to introduce the newest member of our I Be a fooDie team…. Gutsy! Our new mascot Gutsy is a stuffed intestine created by our logo designer Shari Bodofsky. While Gutsy may not enjoy long walks on the beach, he does enjoy educating and raising awareness about IBD. We decided to unveil Gutsy in honor of IBD Awareness Week (Dec. 1 – Dec. 7). (more…)

We are proud to present Part II of our IBD restaurant guide series! (To view Part I, click here!) The average American eats out several times a week, and those with IBD often have a more difficult time choosing IBD-safe foods at restaurants or even finding a restaurant that meets their dietary needs. In creating the guide, we wanted to provide the “average” IBDer with some practical knowledge of each cuisine, and to give tips on how to navigate a menu and order food when dining and exploring various cuisines. We hope the guide will become a tool for those with IBD to allow them to make smarter choices. We also hope to expand it to include additional information (by no means is this guide an exhaustive review of each cuisine!), and in the future we still plan to add more! Feel free to add your own thoughts about the guide, which cuisine you prefer, IBD-friendly restaurants that you recommend, or even certain dishes that you always order because they are “safe” for you.
