Let's Get Down And Dirty With SIBO

Let’s get down and dirty with SIBO | Exactly what you need to know.

I've been procrastinating blogging about this. Mainly because I don't believe a one-size fits all approach works. I don't think the research is where we need it to be for me to provide you with the 'best' information possible. And there is copious amounts of misinformation out there. There are things I know, but many I don't, and while I keep up to date on the literature, the fact of the matter is, our understanding of SIBO is rapidly evolving, and what I write today, may hold less truth tomorrow. However, I did want to put it all down somewhere, where my clients and colleagues could at least get some accurate information. Because let me tell you, the misinformation is rampant. While this is based on evidence,...

Low FODMAP BBQ Chili

Low FODMAP BBQ Chili

This low FODMAP BBQ chili is actually one of the best chili's I've EVER made. I partnered with FODY Foods to develop a nutritious, low FODMAP recipe, with a TON of flavour.

Recipes involving tomato products OFTEN are high FODMAP, because of the onion, garlic, and occasional high fructose corn syrup added to them. And when you think of a chili, we often have beans, corn, and a variety of other high FODMAP foods. You're probably even wondering if it's possible to create a low FODMAP chili, or ahem, one that isn't just ground beef and crushed tomatoes. I'm here to tell you that not only is it possible, but my...
