Recently, I found myself giving a number of low-FODMAP diet tips to yet another friend dealing with IBS issues.
Not surprisingly, she was most concerned with ending up eating the same meals over and over for the two months her doctor had asked her to follow the diet. Since I’ve been working my way through our own low-FODMAP path over the past year, I was able to easily reassure her that wouldn’t be the case. After all, I see dozens of interesting new recipes each week.
And that’s when I got the idea to start FODMAP Friday here on the blog.
What is FODMAP Friday?
FODMAP Friday will be a weekly round-up of the most delicious-looking low-FODMAP recipes I’ve seen over the past week. I’ll also share interesting articles on IBS and the low-FODMAP diet. And last but not least, I’ll share a must-follow resource for following a low-FODMAP diet. I hope these weekly updates will provide inspiration to folks struggling with adopting a low-FODMAP diet, and build community amongst those of us sharing our low-FODMAP journey on our blogs.
This Week’s FODMAP Friday Links
Here are some of my favorite low-FODMAP recipes from the past week:
- The Fat Foodie shared a recipe for gluten-free almond financiers that is low-FODMAP provided you eat just one.
- If you love chai, these low-FODMAP chai-spiced shortbread biscuits should be the next treat you pop into your oven.
- Who says you need to choose between peanut butter and oatmeal? Try these gluten-free low FODMAP oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookiesfrom My Gluten-Free Kitchen for a unique flavor combination.
- Going low-FODMAP doesn’t mean giving up curry. The researchers at Monash shared this thai green chicken curry recipe to show you how to enjoy an authentic-tasting curry without IBS irritants.
- Eating a vegan diet while also going low-FODMAP can be a challenge. This low FODMAP vegan shepherd’s pie is a great place to start.
FODMAP Friday Resource Spotlight
Whenever someone I know is just getting started with the low-FODMAP diet, the first resource I share with them is the Monash University’s low-FODMAP diet website. The site provides an overview of what the diet is and what it can do to help minimize the effects of IBS. They also link to their low FODMAP diet app, which may be a useful resource for those trying to maintain a low-FODMAP diet while eating out or traveling.
