FODMAPS HELP

Fri May 24, 2013 2:58 pm

My Dietician has me on a low FODMAPS diet and I am struggling for ideas.

no gluten (ie wheat, rye, barley, oats)
no lactose (hard cheese is ok)
no onion
no garlic
no mushrooms
no apples
minimum broccoli (i love brocolli :( )
no lentils
minimum avocado

every sauce / marinade has onion and garlic in it :(

I feel like i am going to be living on plain meat and potatoes!

I love marions brand thai green curry and thai red curry but they have garlic!

If you make the sauce from scratch it will only have in it what you put in it.

That does sound very restrictive though.

Like the other ladies have said, I think it will probably be easiest for you to start making everything from scratch so you can be entirely sure what is going into your food.

I think on a diet like this, you need to be thinking of going back to "real food" - what would your grandparents have eaten? Don't shy away from whole foods like full cream milk and butter. http://www.foodrenegade.com & http://www.westonaprice.org/ for some background info on why butter is not the enemy!

I'm sure you've looked, but here are some quick sites I found to help.
