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 Parmesan Tomato Soup

Nancy, Andrea's student here! It wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be to make a low FODMAP soup. Many of the ingredients found in recipes or store bought soups are high in FODMAPs including garlic and onions, and broths and stocks, which are commonly used as a base for a variety of soups. This formed a unique challenge for me, but with a little research and a lot of experimenting, I found the perfect combination of ingredients to bring you a simple, yet delicious homemade parmesan tomato soup! Fresh fennel was the winner as the substitute for onion! Fennel is a green and white herb that has a distinct liquorice flavour when eaten raw.  Sautéed and browned in butter, the flavour is softened and...

Homemade Gut Friendly Granola

Homemade Gut Friendly Granola

Hey there, it is Nancy again, and I am excited to share with you a homemade granola recipe made for a special someone found within your gut! Let me explain… Did you know that there is such a thing as good bacteria? Not all bacteria needs to be cleaned away, and killed through sanitization. We as humans contain trillions of good bacteria within our gastrointestinal system most of which have vital tasks to maintain our overall health. Our good bacteria help us in a variety of ways including producing a physical barrier in our gut to protect against bad bacteria, helping us digest nutrients, and even help support an efficient immune system.1  In fact, research is beginning to show - those bacteria may also play a role in...

Raincoast Style Crisps

DIY Raincoast Crisps

I want to share a secret with you. Have you ever purchased Raincoast Crisps from the store? The crackers that are thin and have a light crunch. They contain a nutty crunch and sweet taste due to the dried fruit - full of wholesome ingredients - so much so that you wonder if you can make them at home!

You simply freeze the loaf, chop into thin slices, and bake...

Low FODMAP Eggplant Parmesan

Low FODMAP Eggplant Parmesan

Hey all! Nancy - Andrea's student here! I was lucky enough to receive the “Oh She Glows Everyday” cookbook, by Angela Liddon, for Christmas this year.  My friend must have known I had been eyeing this cookbook in stores already. I couldn’t wait to get into the kitchen and pick my first dish to share with you today. However, it was quite the challenge to pick one recipe, as they all sounded so good. At last, I chose the Excellent Eggplant Parmesan - of course - I made it a Low FODMAP Eggplant Parmesan for all you IBS'ers - it's EQUALLY as delicious as any FODMAP version! The Eggplant slices are coated in a fragrant vegan 'parmesan' and then cooked in the oven until crisp and...

Banana Chocolate Avocado Pudding

Banana Chocolate Avocado Pudding

If you are a fan of chocolate pudding… this is a must try! This chocolate pudding includes an avocado and a banana - a great way to get in some fibre, and whole foods.

In addition, the pumpkin seed butter adds a little protein to this dessert, in addition to a satisfying twist for the taste buds!

Banana Tofu Muffins

Banana Tofu Muffins

This is definitely my FAVOURITE muffin recipe! It is my favorite snack to make in bulk and store in the freezer. This quick nutritious snack is great to grab on a busy day! These Banana Tofu muffins are filled with fibre, protein and even essential omega-3 fatty acids. Could it get any sweeter than this? I know what you are thinking- tofu in a dessert? That does not sound sweet. But WAIT. I want to share a little story with you and express why dessert tofu is a great addition to your favourite desserts. When I was studying about the importance of protein at Mount Royal University my professor asked the class “who in this room likes tofu?” Not surprisingly, only a few raised their hand. I didn’t. I knew...

Mocktail Madness!

Mocktail Madness: Delicious Summer Mocktail Recipes

It is FINALLY summer time - a great way to take in the heat is to enjoy some fruity drinks on the patio! When I really tune into my body, sometimes I realize - it really isn’t the alcohol that I crave but simply a nice cold refreshing drink! These delicious summer cocktail recipes definitely helps to curb that craving, helps to prevent FOMO - and unnecessary alcohol intake. For a lot of people with IBS & gut health issues - alcohol can trigger symptoms of diarrhea or constipation. Plus, alcohol can harm your gut microbiome, so ultimately, I encourage people to mostly limit their alcohol to drink to one a day. I know lots of times, that's tricky, especially when everyone else around you is drinking - which is...
