Reduce your symptoms and decrease your risk in the long term

Stop guessing and have a diet plan backed by evidence-based research

When you hand over your nutrition to experts who have spent years dedicated to understanding what works for IBD – it allows for you to find the most effective strategies quicker AND reduces your stress significantly since you are no longer guessing.  As practitioners, we spend hours each week reading research to keep up with the ever-changing landscape of IBD nutrition so you don’t have to.

Do you ever wish you could find the perfect diet plan to help you manage your Crohn’s or Colitis symptoms? Us too.

You’re confused by all the contradictory information you see online.

You’d like to figure out what the experts are discovering about IBD, but you don’t know where to go to find reliable information.

You feel worn out from trying to keep up with all the different diets (SCD, AIP, Paleo, Low FODMAP, etc.)

And let me guess… You’ve also Googled “what to eat for IBD” and found a million ideas on what NOT to eat and no answer on what in the world TO eat?!

As a result of trying to figure it out – perhaps now you’ve restricted your diet so much that you are down to only a few “safe” foods.

You know food matters with IBD and want to reclaim the freedom you’ve been missing by not having to spend so much energy and time guessing at what works…

You’re not alone. A lot of people like you just need a little guidance in finding what’s truly evidence-based nutrition and what actually works. You need someone who can walk you through the process and demystify IBD nutrition once and for all.

We are proud to have helped hundreds of IBD patients like you each year find symptom reduction, improve energy and expand their diets. If you are ready to stop the late-night Google searches and Reddit forum posting, hand it over to the experts – The Crohn’s + Colitis Remission Blueprint (CCRB) has got you covered.

Our Crohn’s + Colitis Remission Blueprint program is for IBD patients who:

  • RAre tired of surface-level advice, generic nutrition guidance & irrelevant handouts
  • RAre tired of being told nutrition doesn’t matter (despite the overwhelming evidence)
  • RKnow that nutrition does matter, but needs to know how to make it work
  • RAre tired of restricting everything and not getting results
  • RNeed answers from experts who live and breathe IBD nutrition
  • RAre ready to be surrounded by a community that “gets it”
  • RDon't want to have to explain themselves to another health care professional
  • RWant the latest research in IBD nutrition but don’t want to spend hours searching for it
  • RJust want to reduce symptoms & feel like themselves again

    “What I’ve liked most about this program is being able to have all of the answers I need all in one place. As a mom, I was concerned for my son and using forums and google searches to get the information I needed which I knew wasn’t the best. Now instead of guessing, I feel we have a solid nutrition plan in place and the tools we need to get through the ups and downs of IBD.”

    Introducing the Crohn’s + Colitis Remission Blueprint


    This program is designed to give you the latest research on IBD and nutrition in a user-friendly format, so you can find out what really works for IBD & what things you can let go of.

    You get the information you need, without getting overwhelmed by conflicting opinions online. We even explain why there are disagreements on nutrition topics and what’s missing from the conversation so you’ll leave more confident and less confused.

    The most common things we hear from those finishing are:
    “I feel so much more confident in what works for IBD & less confusion and fear at meal time”
    “I have less symptoms now and have included things I thought I couldn’t have”

    With CCRB you’ll have everything you need to reduce your risk of flare up, reduce symptoms and feel more confident about what the most effective strategies for nutrition are.


    Here’s what you get:

    “I don’t think I’ll ever go without the support of a Dietitian after working through this program. I learned about which supplements were most effective and was able to cut back on non-essential things I was taking. I’ve noticed a big reduction in my gut symptoms and even joint pain after incorporating what I learned. I enjoyed how concise and seamless the process was. I honestly wish I would have had access to this program sooner!”

    We are the
    Crohn’s and Colitis Dietitians™

    Ashley Hurst, founder of the Crohn’s & Colitis Dietitians, leads this group program alongside Danielle Leffler. We have a private practice where we serve many Crohn’s and Colitis patients and those living with other painful digestive conditions.

    We’ve created this group program specifically for IBD patients seeking a starting point. After Ashley’s diagnosis, she felt confused and disappointed by her limited treatment options – so she dedicated the next 10 years to learning everything she could about managing IBD symptoms with nutrition.

    As a team, we have had the privilege of working with hundreds of patients struggling with digestive challenges, and we have seen the incredible transformations that are possible for people with IBD.

    In our current practice, we primarily work one-on-one with patients – but now we want to bring this evidence-based approach to more people, in an affordable group coaching format.

    That’s why we’ve created the Crohn’s + Colitis Remission Blueprint.

    Icon of gut, IBD Nutrition Program

    IBD symptom remission is possible.

    It is possible to create a nutrition plan that helps you achieve symptom remission and stay symptom-free longer. You can figure out a long-term nutrition solution that complements your medical treatment plan and helps you reduce your risk in the long term.

    It’s also possible to expand your diet so you don’t feel so restricted, and choose meal plans that don’t feel overwhelming.

    We can give you an evidence-based approach that gives you a clear plan for what to put on your plate to help you reduce your symptoms and stop guessing on what is effective.

    We know it’s possible, because the hundreds of people who have participated in our Crohn’s + Colitis Remission Blueprint program have seen it happen.

    Are you looking for more customized guidance?

    Our Crohn’s and Colitis Remission Blueprint is a great starting point. However, if your priority is 1:1 guidance and you are ready to dive deeper we offer a program specifically for this.

    There is a high demand to work with us 1:1 and we are very selective about who we work with. We prioritize results and providing top of the line care for those who need it most. Typically 1:1 work is reserved for those who are struggling and in need of critical nutrition guidance. This program is specifically for those who know results do not happen overnight and are willing to work on things for 6 months.
