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...

7 things you can do to support someone on the low FODMAP diet

The low FODMAP diet, or really any medically necessary diet, can be really isolating. It can make you feel alone, misunderstood, and a giant inconvenience. While you’re busy navigating one of the most restrictive, non-sensical diets out there – you not only have to content with label reading, picking the right foods, and making a shift to your planning – but you ALSO have to navigate the impacts it has on your relationships at work, at home, and when you go out with friends. While most people are well-meaning (often in their desire to understand and relate) their questions can put you on edge. Make you feel judged, singled out, and unheard. As someone who counsels patients, it’s not the diet changes (though hard!) that are the most...

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...

Can a Keto Diet Help You Manage IBS?

Can a Keto Diet Help Your IBS? | A Dietitian Explains.

As you may have heard recently, there has been a lot of buzz surrounding the ketogenic (keto) diet and its ability to manage irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) – but does it really work? Today I’m here to unravel the mystery of the keto diet and if it’s something you should be considering to manage your IBS. What is a Keto Diet? A ketogenic diet is low in carbs but sufficient in protein and high in fat. It’s commonly used as a diet to manage patients with epilepsy to reduce seizure frequency1 – BUT you’ve probably more seen it around the internet touted as the ‘if paleo didn’t work – you should try this’ kinda diet. (cough cough FAD cough cough). If you’ve read our previous post about why you...

5 Day Menu Plan For IBS & Gut Health?

5 day menu for IBS & gut health

June has been an exciting month. I've been gearing up to launch something people have been asking me for for a LONG time. Introducing my FREE 5 Day Menu for IBS & Gut Health  As my clients and followers know, I offer a one week and four week low FODMAP menu through counselling, and on my site. However, I was starting to get a bit frustrated with all the confusion about FODMAP's and gut health that are out there - and starting to see that, as FODMAP's become more 'main stream' - people are using the diet for all the wrong reasons, and without a proper explanation and implementation. Ok. I'll get off my soap box now and tell you what it's all about. This menu is focused on IBS...
