The low FODMAP diet is increasingly recognised as the primary management strategy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), as it results in a significant reduction of symptoms in over 70% of people who try it.
However, cutting out FODMAPs (a group of short-chain carbohydrates which are frequently malabsorbed in the small intestine) can leave people at a loss as to how to eat well without using staples such as bread, pasta, dairy, onion and garlic.
This book changes all of that.
With 100 delicious recipes – including breakfasts such as Coconut and Mixed Seed Granola, healthy light bites like Prawn Rice Salad, and dinners that include Mexican Chicken Fajitas and Mediterranean Meatballs – you can find real relief and enjoy food once again.
‘Low FODMAP eating can really help those with IBS. Think again if you believe it will be boring. The mouth-watering recipes in here will help you adjust to a way of life that can help you manage your symptoms.’ Dr Nina Byrne

‘I started the FODMAP diet after a year of having issues. Immediately it had a major impact on my life.
