FODMAPs, a broad variety of naturally occurring carbohydrates found in many plant-based foods, can wreak havoc on sensitive digestive systems, especially in people who have irritable bowel syndrome and other functional bowel disorders. Pinpointing and eliminating FODMAPs while maintaining nutritional excellence can be especially challenging for vegans, because FODMAPs are found in an extensive range of common vegan foods and ingredients. In this groundbreaking resource and cookbook, Jo Stepaniak lays bare not only the FODMAPs vegans with IBS need to avoid, but also the wide assortment of nutritious plant-based foods that are generally well tolerated. Easy-to-read tables and shopping lists arm readers with all the information they need to navigate the supermarket and purchase kind-to-the-gut fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, beverages, and condiments. Over 100 scrumptious low-FODMAP recipes will help readers prepare spectacular seasonings as well as mainstays for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, so they can stay healthy and satisfied while pampering their delicate digestive systems.
Trust this book!
There is so much care in putting this book together, from the accurate and well-organized background information about the Fodmap diet, to the delightful recipes with tips galore, I cannot say enough about this book. I am an R.N. who has battled IBS since a colon re-section in 2011 and concurring peritonitis and sepsis. I know I’m lucky to be alive! But I do appreciate credible and accurate information when it comes to my health issues, and all I can say is Jo writes with authority and the very latest in the Fodmap world. I want to thank her for assembling a resource that can be trusted for its validity and for its scrumptious vegan fare.
