Cured meat

It's extremely important for people with Crohn's disease to get enough protein; at least 25% of your daily calorie intake should be protein-based.

But eating fatty and cured meats, like bacon, is not the best way to add protein to your diet.

These foods offer little nutritional benefit, while their high fat content can aggravate diarrhea for some people. Instead, choose lean high-quality proteins, like fish, soy, and smooth nut butters.
