FODMAPs stands for Fermentable Oligo-, Di- and Mono-saccharides And Polyols. They are known to cause GI discomfort in susceptible individuals and more and more research has been proving that a low FODMAP diet has widespread application for managing functional GI disorders such as IBS and IBD. Unfortunately, FODMAPs are present in many plant based foods which means there are limited options for vegans and vegetarians who want to follow this plan. I wasn't about to sacrifice my health or my food preferences, so I set to work creating delicious meals that were both veg based and FODMAPs friendly. I have personally made and eaten all these meals according to the most recent FODMAPs research information, so for anyone who has been prescribed an elimination diet or no/low FODMAPs diet by a registered dietician and don’t know where to begin, let this be your guide. Please note, however, I am not a doctor and this is not meant to replace medical advice. Happy Healthy Eating!
