Welcome to FODMAP Everyday!
We are made up of a Success Team of dedicated individuals, each with their own expertise.
We have made a point of assembling a group of people who can best help you navigate the low FODMAP diet and get you on the road to your own dietary success.
Dédé Wilson and Robin Jaffin are the co-founders of FODMAP Everyday
Dédé focuses on recipe development, testing and writing, associated food photography and product reviews. Being a FODMAPer herself she functions a bit more as the front person for our brand in our videos and personal appearances. FULL BIO HERE.
Robin manages our business and partnership development, marketing, social media and content development. Some of the photography you see on the site and on Instagram is Robin’s work. She also runs The Farm where we are cultivating a garden and greenhouse full of Low FODMAP fresh vegetables and fruits. FULL BIO HERE.
Both can be contacted directly using the Contact form.
SUCCESS TEAM: REGISTERED DIETITIANS
We strongly recommend that everyone embarking on the low FODMAP diet do so with the direction of a registered dietitian. Even more than your gastroenterologist, who might be the one to diagnose you with IBS, it is the dietitians who will be the ones to guide you and support you through the Elimination Phase, Challenge Phase and beyond. And it should be said that just as doctors have specialties, so do dietitians. You want a dietitian who is FODMAP savvy.
Our Success Team currently has 4 dietitians with particular areas of focus related to gut health and the Low FODMAP diet in particular. Find out more about each of them on their bio pages.
