About

Hi there! Welcome to my blog. I am a newly qualified dietitian suffering from irritable bowel syndrome and have been managing my symptoms successfully through the clinically proven low FODMAP diet. Armed with some basic knowledge in culinary arts, from the old days when I wanted to become a chef, I try to adapt my most loved recipes to suit my low FODMAP needs. My blog is dedicated to sharing low FODMAP recipes and my experience with IBS along with some helpful tips.  All recipes are also suitable for gluten free, wheat free and soya free diets. I hope you find the blog helpful and I wish you happy browsing!

  1. You mention Quakers Oat So Simple they have a new Cuppa version but in the ingredients it lists semi-skimmed milk powder would be on a no no on Low Fodmap diet.

  2. I have recently been told I have IBS, scouring the internet for low fodmap info and your site is amazing! Thank you for providing so much information, in particular the UK list of foods! I’m printing it out immediately and I’ve signed up to your blog! When you do an update next, can it show what the new additions are so that I can notice these too? Thanks so much!

  3. The foodlist is really helpful because it contains a few ideas I hadn’t thought of.

    I have also been impressed by the range in marks and spencers

    1. Barley malt extract should be safe on the low fodmap diet as it is usually used in small amounts. However it contains gluten and should be avoided if you have been diagnosed with coeliac disease.

    1. Hi Melissa, Yes runner beans are low FODMAP as well. Just limit your portion to about 12 beans. You may find the phone apps Fodmap by fm and the low fodmap Monash university app helpful. You can search for particular foods and the Fodmap by fm app also allows you to scan barcodes making shopping a bit easier.
