About F you FODMAP

F You FODMAP is all about helping people who need to follow a low FODMAP diet to still eat tasty, seasonal, proper food and not just green juices and smoothie bowls.

My aim is to help you stick to your 6-8 week plan by giving you recipe inspiration, and get you back to eating more of the things you love.

You’ll find influences from all corners of the world. Whenever I travel, I always bring recipes home with me. And I’m constantly scouring the internet for ways of cooking from other countries I’ve not yet tried.

Head to the recipes section to find some great FODMAP friendly things to cook and eat. You can also search by category for low FODMAP breakfasts, snacks, lunches, dinners and pantry staples by clicking the 3 horizontal lines in the top right. I’ve included filters for vegetarian and vegan recipes as well.

So what is a low FODMAP diet?

For me, it’s a game changer.

It’s a diet that’s been specially developed by the clever researchers at Monash University in Melbourne. It’s aim is to relieve people suffering with IBS, which affects 1 in 7 people, from the associated symptoms.

The word FODMAP is an acronym, standing for:

  • Fermentable (basically that refers to foods that are broken down by gut bacteria and then produce gases in your belly)
  • Oligosaccharides (in particular: wheat, onions and garlic)
  • Disaccharides (that’s lactose to you and I)
  • Monosaccharides (a.k.a. fructose – found in honey, high-fructose corn syrups and fruits like apples)
  • And
  • Polyols (Sorbitol & Mannitol – these are found in some fruits and vegetables)

You can find a full list of foods you can and can’t eat on the Monash app.

The idea of the low FODMAP diet is to cut from your diet foods high in FODMAPs, for a period of 6 to 8 weeks. For some people with a gut-imbalance such as SIBO, they may be able to go back to eating as normal. Others will gradually re-introduce foods back into their diet, helping them to identify which are causing nasty symptoms.

Either way, I hope this site helps you achieve a happy belly.
