What exactly is the low-FODMAP diet and what are FODMAPs? Scientists have discovered that FODMAPs, a collection of short-chain carbohydrates (sugars and fibers) that are difficult to digest, are often the source of digestive issues and are now known to trigger symptoms of IBS and SIBO.  FODMAPs are found in many common foods like wheat (pasta, pizza, bread), milk, beans, apples, mushrooms, honey, agave, inulin and other vegetables, fruits, and sweeteners.
Following an elimination diet such as the low-FODMAP diet can be difficult, however the author drew on her own personal experience with IBS and what she learned from her fans of FODMAP Life to provide crowd-pleasing recipes and several tips for diet success.  “I once suffered from IBS with symptoms sometimes lasting for days, weeks or even months.  It affected so many aspects of my life until I found the low-FODMAP diet and began teaching others what I had learned” says Francioli.  “The low-FODMAP diet can be confusing but with my book, sufferers of IBS will quickly become acquainted with low-FODMAP foods and ingredients thus boosting their confidence and creativity to make satisfying meals, even if they lead a busy life.”
Book SigningMore than a cookbook, The Everything® Low-FODMAP Diet Cookbook includes a chapter dedicated to the basics of the diet, as well as advice and tips like how to read labels to find low- or high-FODMAPs, how to eat out on the diet, how to plan meals, and how to work in stress relief for a calm body and mind. Menu plans, low- and high-FODMAP food lists and diet resources can also be found in the appendices.  The recipes featured are flavorful and fun; some have been inspired by different cultures; most are very easy to make; and some are popular favorites re-created to be low-FODMAP.
