If you’re searching for some variety in your diet, don’t be afraid to try something new – especially if you’re thinking of going plant-based. According to research, a plant-based diet is linked to lower inflammation levels, which is ideal for Crohn’s disease sufferers. Choosing to skip meat in favor of plant-based alternatives can bring good news for your digestive system and Crohn’s symptoms.
You can cook up Asian Baked Tofu Over Rice Noodles if you want some plant-based variety in your diet. This recipe combines excellent flavor with easy-to-use ingredients that won’t cost a lot or be difficult to find. You’ll need:

- 8 ounces of extra firm organic tofu.
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil.
