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...

Low Fodmap Tomato Sauce

Low FODMAP Tomato Sauce

Low FODMAP Tomato Sauce can be SO hard to find (especially in Canada!) Quite often ready-made tomato-based sauces bought at the local grocery store contain garlic and onions. Roasted red pepper sauce, sweet basil pasta sauce, and even organic marinara pasta sauce: they all sound delicious, but when you have irritable bowel syndrome and are on the low FODMAP diet, the garlic and onion content just doesn’t work. This Low FODMAP tomato sauce is the perfect alternative to high FODMAP, and also highly salted, store bought tomato-based sauces.  This recipe is simple as it just involves two cans of tomatoes, two chopped vegetables, spices, and a garlic-infused olive oil. NOTE: Garlic-infused olive oil has been labelled safe for individuals following a low FODMAP diet since the High FODMAP...

Vegetarian Sources of Protein on the Low FODMAP Diet

This week on #AskADietitian we covered Vegetarian Sources of Protein on the Low FODMAP Diet. Often times, I have patients call to ask - 'can I even DO low FODMAP as a vegetarian or vegan?' or they try to do it on their own, and end up really struggling to get enough nutrition in. While the low FODMAP diet is limiting, you can absolutely get enough nutrition, and protein in on a low FODMAP vegetarian or vegan diet. Watch the short video now!

Low FODMAP Treats

A low FODMAP diet is often misinterpreted as a strict 'healthy food' diet that doesn’t allow for treats and sweets. While it is true that many savory and sweet desserts do contain high FODMAP ingredients, there are many you can still enjoy. Following a low FODMAP diet should not mean that you can't enjoy delicious goodies! How to Pick a Low FODMAP Treat It is important to look at the ingredients when choosing sweets. Often an ingredient can be known by more than one name, or it is unclear in what quantity you may be able to consume a moderate FODMAP food. Ingredients including, but not limited to high fructose corn syrup (or gluose-fructose), honey, and agave syrup are high in FODMAP compounds, but ingredients like sugar,...

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...

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...
