This study is looking at home cooking patterns in people seen at the Tufts GI clinic with IBD and those without IBD. Participants will be given a questionnaire that will ask about different parts of the participants' home cooking patterns including attitudes, self-efficacy, and knowledge. By taking the responses to the questionnaire, we plan to examine different variables linked to home cooking pattern and how they differ between people seen at the GI clinic here at Tufts with IBD, and people seen at the clinic without IBD.
