Fats & Oils

Olive Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Coconut Oil – Buy virgin coconut oil

is high in saturated fat, so use it in moderation.

Butter -I love Kerrygold.  Maybe it’s because my ancestors were born in Ireland.  Or maybe because it’s just so damn good on Irish soda bread .  Either way, it’s a high quality butter and I recommend buying high quality grass fed butter and where the cows are not given antibiotics or growth hormones

Margarine – It’s allowed on the low-FODMAP diet, however I personally do not use it because it’s a processed food.  Since I like to consume as much foods as I can in their natural state, I stay away from all highly processed foods but it’s up to you on what you choose to consume.  *Anything boxed or pre-packaged is most likely processed (unless of course it’s tomatoes in a plastic container!).  Rice crackers are still considered processed, but I like them because they are not highly processed or made with additives or chemicals.  Be wary of the words “natural” as many food companies use that word to describe their foods, when there’s barely anything natural about them.
