Your IBS Symptoms Aren't Normal... But They're Common #AskADietitian Facebook Live

Your IBS symptoms aren’t normal… but they’re common | #AskADietitian Facebook Live

The week before Christmas I talk about: Your IBS Symptoms aren't normal, but they're common. What I mean by that is they DON'T have to be something you just live with. They aren't something made up. They aren't a diagnosis of exclusion. And they aren't a catch-all phrase. By assuming this - we disempower people who are struggling with IBS. I hear the words hopeless, helpless, frustrated, and unheard. I heard people feeling like they're not taken seriously. Ultimately, we need to SHIFT and CHANGE the messaging around this! My post 'Is it Irritable Bowel Syndrome' goes into detail about getting the correct diagnosis and treatment. Watch what I have to say this week about standing up for IBS diagnoses and getting access to proper treatment! If you're tired...

Low FODMAP Fennel Beef Stew

Low FODMAP Fennel Beef Stew

So many comforting dishes in the fall and winter are hard to find low FODMAP - usually because the recipes contain onion and garlic. And that's exactly what I need in the winter! I am NOT a fan of these cold winter days. Coming home from a long day when the sun has already gone to bed at 5 pm is not my favourite time of year. With this low FODMAP Fennel Beef Stew, when I return home there's a delicious smell coming from my slow cooker crockpot – the winter days get a little better! Unlike many stews, this dish uses fennel, instead of onions and garlic, to produce the base aromatic flavours. I know I can hear all of you IBS'ers cheering ‘YAY’. And for those...
