Low FODMAP Chocolate Chip Cookies

Low FODMAP Chocolate Chip Cookies

I often find that people either love potlucks or hate them. Either you know the perfect dish to bring, or you spend hours worrying about what is an acceptable dish to bring. You ask yourself: what is considered a big enough portion? Are people going to like the dish I bring? Does it have to be homemade, or is it acceptable to opt for some store bought snacks? Although potlucks are supposed to be a fun get together, they can often be more stressful than desired. In addition when trying to stick to a low FODMAP diet, a whole new layer of stress is added. It can be difficult to distinguish which platters are low-FODMAP and which are not. Especially when your co-worker won’t share that...

How To Start On The Low FODMAP Diet

How to start on the low FODMAP diet

So you’ve been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome and have been told to start on the low FODMAP diet? As a dietitian, I’m thrilled that more people are being referred in the direction of ‘food first, medication second’ for IBS management. In fact, the low FODMAP diet has been shown to improve symptoms in approximately 50-75% of patients who implement it under dietitian supervision and support. However, the majority of patients suggested to follow the low FODMAP diet are not given the resources and tools needed to implement it safely and effectively! Awareness is growing around the low FODMAP diet – and with that, so too are the resources and foods available to help patients get started on the low FODMAP diet. Today, in partnership with Rachel Pauls...

Long Term Low FODMAP | A Dietitian Explains

Living with gut symptoms is miserable. They are painful, embarrassing and awkward. It’s not surprising that when people find relief on the low FODMAP diet, they want to stay on it forever. BUT, this is over restrictive, in most cases totally unnecessary and even detrimental to gut health. My name is Joanna Baker, I’m a FODMAP expert dietitian from Everyday Nutrition in Melbourne, Australia and today Andrea has kindly asked me to contribute some info on reintroducing FODMAPs back into your diet. What’s the deal with FODMAP cut offs? You probably know by now that: We can test foods in a laboratory to see what the FODMAP content is. We also have plenty of research telling us what people with IBS will tolerate before they start loosening their...

Low FODMAP Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Low-FODMAP Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Hey- it is Nancy here, Andrea’s student, and today I have got a Low-FODMAP hummus to share with you! Yes, that’s right, there is such thing as a delicious hummus without any garlic or onions! Garlic and onion are two foods that are high-FODMAP, specifically due to their high contents of fructo-oligosaccharides, and can make digestion for IBSer’s unpleasant. Unfortunately, they are also two flavour ingredients that are common in so many dishes! But - let all your troubles fade away because this hummus is specifically made Low-FODMAP and is still full of flavour! Hummus is a great snack to help you get through the morning before lunch, as its primary ingredient is chickpeas which is full of protein to keep you full! An important note about chickpeas is...

The Role Of Fermented Foods & Probiotics in Gut Health

How Fermented Foods & Probiotics in Gut Health

Fermentation has been used as a preservation method for thousands of years, but the benefits go beyond keeping your food safe to eat. Pickled vegetables and probiotic yogurt are just a few fermented foods that have recently become popular for their gut health benefits. But what exactly is the role of fermented foods in gut health, and why should you eat them? In this two-part fermented food blog series, I’m going to help you understand why fermentation is more than just a buzzword. My amazing student, Amy Pun helped to pen this article - she's pretty fantastic so be sure to thank her for her brains in the comments! It is important to understand the difference between prebiotics, probiotics, and fermented foods. Probiotics are a type of...
