Low-FODMAP Seeded Chicken Salad

A lot of living with a medically-necessary restricted diet, is finding ways to enjoy our favorite foods in ways that fit our new needs. Some ingredients post more challenges than others, it’s true, but often it’s just a matter of knowing your ingredients. Chicken salad–either as a salad topping, sandwich filling, or snack with crackers–used […]

Baking the Low-FODMAP Way

As someone who very much enjoys cookies, cakes and other confections (I was a pastry chef, after all) this whole no wheat thing really had me concerned–especially when so many gluten-free baked goods are gritty or crumbly or just plain miss the mark. And since we started the testing portion just after Thanksgiving, I wanted to make […]

Dining Out on a Low-FODMAP Diet

Hands-down, eating at home is the safest way to ensure compliance on any sort of restricted diet. But it’s not always the most fun, and sometimes you just plain want to go out and have someone else do the work. Is that even possible on a Low-FODMAP diet? Absolutely. Steak Toscano and Grilled Vegetables from […]

Review: Domino’s Gluten-Free Pizza Crust

Special diets can wreak havoc on those nights you just can’t bear to cook and are looking for a simple solution for dinner. These nights don’t happen often for us, but when they do it’s lovely to be able to click over to the food of your choice, place an order online, and have it […]

Strategies for Public Grazing on a Low-FODMAP Diet

Last night was the 2013 Chef’s Sampler fundraiser for the local Children’s Home Society. We’ve enjoyed the offerings in previous years (over-enjoyed, to be truthful) but this was the first such event after adopting the Low-FODMAP diet as a preventative for IBS. I was really curious how much there would be for me to try […]

Of course, many a cook knows that once an onion is cooked it changes to a wonderfully sweet and savory flavoring agent and would never dream of cooking without it. And […]

Resources for Low-FODMAP Living

April is IBS Awareness Month and, as such, I though it would helpful to share the books and websites that have helped me so very much over the last few months. My default reaction to a new idea or problem to solve is research. This used to mean hitting the library when I was in school and […]

Recipe | Low-FODMAP Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

One of the biggest challenges for me, starting off this Low-FODMAP Lifestyle (especially since we started just after Thanksgiving so I was facing Christmas without cookies, etc.), was finding high-quality, good-tasting bread products that didn’t include wheat, barley, rye, or any of other high-FODMAP ingredients. Thankfully (though I consider it a bit of a double-edged […]

Confessions of a Reluctantly Picky Eater

A few years back I chose to cut out tomato products and a few other items from my regular diet as a result of a health issue that had cropped up. Even though tomato products are all over the place, it’s still very possible for an otherwise-omnivore to enjoy social gatherings without making a pill […]
