Here’s an Italian classic that needs no adaptation to make it paleo.There are plenty of everyday meals that are paleo and many people don’t realize it. Broccoli rabe and sausage is one of them. Luckily for you it’s also an Italian dish. A lot of IBD sufferers say that broccoli brothers them. Yes, this leafy cousin of broccoli is packed with fiber, but for some reason it doesn’t bother me as much. Broccoli rabe (AKA rapini) is in the Brassicas family – with Brussels sprouts, cabbage, etc - and may trip up digestion a bit. And by ”trip up” I mean make you fart a lot. So for those of you UC/Crohn’s people who don’t want your stomach to blow up the size of a Macy’s day parade balloon…tread lightly. MANGIA!
