Low FODMAP Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal

Best-Ever Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal

Oh yes. This BEST EVER Strawberry Rhubarb Baked Oatmeal is to DIE for. Do you like eating pie for breakfast? It's basically that good. Did I mention, it's low FODMAP?! Yay for all you IBS'ers out there! May and June are the months where we start getting rhubarb in Calgary - and I SO look forward to them. I don't have my own bush, but I stopped in at the farmers market this weekend to pick some up. Strawberry rhubarb pie is one of my all-time FAVORITE desserts - but of course - pie for breakfast is ya know, not usually recommended. So I decided to make the most AMAZING strawberry rhubarb baked oatmeal - full of fibre, protein, and fruit - and JUST as delicious as...

Move-C Understanding The Relationship

Exercise and the Gut Microbiome

Have you ever noticed, you feel better when you exercise? Researchers are just now starting to elucidate the link between exercise and the gut microbiome. I mean - I think we all deep down know, yes, of course it make sense that exercise is part of a healthy lifestyle, and that it is likely it has some impact on the gut microbiome. But now we have science actually looking at what those changes are, and how we can make the best recommendations for you to be as healthy as possible. Exercise and The Gut Microbiome We know that exercise appears to play a role in inflammation, energy metabolism, and the gut microbiome¹. Now, researchers out of the U of C are looking at how high intensity interval...

Cinnamon Tahini Chickpea Salad

Cinnamon-Tahini Chickpea Salad

I fell in love with the flavours in Berry Nourished’s Moroccan-Quinoa Salad and decided to create my own rendition of this quick and simple salad! I amped up the cinnamon flavour in this dish, and kept the colourful array of vegetables that make this dish taste and look so delicious! This dish consists of chickpeas that provide a great source of protein and fibre, and fresh vegetables to help increase your vegetable count for the day! If you fall in love with the flavor and simplicity of this salad like I did, try doubling (or tripling) the recipe next time, as this dish is great for quick grab-on-the-go lunches! Once you start chopping, it doesn’t take long to double the ingredients, and it can help eliminate prep time on a...

Fodmapped For You Fodmap Friendly Certified Product Review

FODMAPPED for you | FODMAP Friendly Certified Product Review

I am SO excited to have had the opportunity to try FODMAPPED for you's AMAZING products. Time and time again, my clients find the biggest struggle with staying low FODMAP is sauces, and condiments. People get tired of 'bland' food -not that low FODMAP has to be bland, per-say - but the sheer amount of foods you have to remove often make it seem like you have very few options. FODMAPPED for you, alongside FODMAP Friendly kindly sent me the whole array of their products to try out, so that I could share my thoughts with you. I don't know about you, but sometimes speciality products can be a bit underwhelming. This was NOT the case with FODMAPPED. They achieved AMAZING flavour with no onion, no...
