I’m a huge proponent of getting enough fiber in our daily diet, especially because a low FODMAP diet can make this a bit complicated. I love working with clients to explore new sources of fiber.
Often, we’ll make a trip to the grocery store and pick out a new fruit or vegetable they haven’t tried before and plan a meal or snack around that. Developing a varied “toolbox” of low FODMAP fiber sources can be extremely helpful to keeping one’s gut on track!
I love Dédé Wilson and Kate Scarlata’s new book, The Low-FODMAP Diet Step by Step. It’s got such great, easy to follow tips on how to get started on the diet, and the recipes are so delicious it’s hard to pick just one!
Some of the more recent online recipes I’ve tried and enjoyed include the Butter Chicken recipe from the FODMAP It ™ section of FODMAP Everyday and Kate Scarlata’s Baked Oatmeal Cups. My kids especially loved this last one and customized theirs with individual toppings.
