Do you live in or near Carlton? Aunt Maggie's has a new store on Lygon Street and they're stocking our whole range of frozen products! Get on down to check out the new store and grab some LoFo, Gluten Free goodies! Check them out here: http://www.auntmaggiesorganics.com.au/
Air-popped popcorn is a convenient and tasty #lowfodmap snack option🍿
On average, a 20g serve will provide 2-3g fibre, 2g protein, 4-5g unsaturated fat, 10g carbohydrate and 90-100 calories. Note however, it can be easy to devour a whole bag (guilty 😂) - so try either portioning a large packet/home-made batch into snap lock bags/containers or buy the single-serve multipacks ✔
I am spontaneous by nature and a night owl and yet I have always been very particular about my morning rituals. Whether food or aerobics Oz Style orientated, I've always known that the start to a day is pretty important.
Even my hubs knows how imperative my big plate of green sit down meal is for me, so he made me today's one.
Afternoons like these call for cacao chia seed pudding topped with Greek yogurt and berries 👌
I used Danone's new "yopro" Greek yogurt because unlike other yogurts, this DOES NOT contain inulin. It also has lactase as an ingredient, meaning that it is easily digestible for those who can't process lactose. On top of that it has 17g protein per serve. Need I say more?!
My go-to lazy day lunch consisting of quinoa (cooked in @massel_foods onion and garlic free stock), @sirenatuna chili tuna, baked sweet potato, grated carrot, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes and black sesame seeds
Last nights dinner leftovers make a great wholesome lunch 🍴 I used brown rice 🍚 with a GF soy sauce, stirred in with a selection of veggies 🥕🥕🥕If you malabsorb mannitol, switch the button mushrooms for oyster mushrooms which are low FODMAP 🍄 🍄 🍄 once you have gone through the elimination and reintroduction phase, it is super important ‼️to reintroduce foods which you can tolerate so that you are not depriving your body of essential nutrients 💪💪💪
So thrilled to meet @susansarandon @celebrityconnected ✨Emmy award winner for Outstanding Lead Actress 'Feud: Bette and Joan' I certainly was the first person to ever explain what a FODMAP was to her! @fodmapfriendlyfoodprogram
Her reaction was "I love tea!" as was the majority of celebrities we met who were so genuinely interested in our range🍃There were only about three celebrities who knew about the low FODMAP diet so was great to spread the word!
Day two done ✅ Chicken with rice salad & rocket from Lucy Whigham's book 😋 Really tasty but suffering with bloating after a bit of a stressy day. I'm visiting a new dentist tomorrow & think that's playing on my mind 💭
What's your favourite #freefrom dessert?
I've been struggling to find desserts that are #lowfodmap and actually taste good!
This is Tesco's FreeFrom take on a Tiramisu, the taste was good at first but like with some other FreeFrom products, there was a strange after taste... 🤔
I'm not really into cooking/baking as I don't really have the time. But would love to know if anyone has any ready made desserts they love or quick recipes!
Last night I checked out @lingerdenver with my parents. I always hear good things about this place and they're a sister restaurant to my fav @rootdownden .
They were super accommodating to my diet (more on how I find places below). I had the fajitas (bottom of the first picture) and the chicken satay salad (second pic). I even indulged and had chocolate Taiwanese shaved ice for dessert (😬eek paying for that today ha)
How do I find restaurants I can eat at? First I research what places definitely accommodate gluten free and review their menu to see if there's things I think could be modified. Then I always call the restaurant and say I'm interested in eating at your establishment but I have several food allergies and I want to know if you'd even be able to work with me. I run down the list of what I can't eat (gluten, dairy, nightshades, garlic, onion. Since I don't often eat out I don't stress as much about gluten-free grains and all high FODMAP foods. You gotta live a little). if somewhere says they can't accommodate that's fine and I move on. But usually they'll check with the chef, make a note of my allergies and then I make a reservation. When I go in everyone is usually aware because the note has been made but I also talk to the waitress and confirm. So far in Denver they've been extremely accommodating, always know what nightshades are and all the weird things I can't have and they work to make an enjoyable experience for me
Moral of the story: call ahead and don't be afraid to ask! .
When the paella requires a min. of 2 ppl, you know you've made the right order 😛 when #traveling , be smart about what works for YOU without totally missing out (ex: I couldn't not order this, so I'm picking out the onions...)
LOW FODMAP/GF POLENTA EGGS BENNY 🍳✨ breakfast used to be my favourite meal of the day but giving up avocado, bread and honey had me giving up some of my favourite breakfast items, my favourite being eggs benny 😵 kept this low FODMAP by frying some sliced tube polenta from @traderjoes in garlic infused oil, then topping the slices with arugula/rocket, poached eggs, hollandaise and pepper 💛🖤 I cheated with this hollandaise as it came out of a packet but there are tons of homemade recipes out there using simple ingredients you will likely already have in your cupboard x

LOW FODMAP FOOD at Tokyo Disney land💜💚💙❤️💛
If you go there, you better to check this out!!! They just have menu for the allergic, so you can avoid mainly wheat, milk, soy, and so on. I got smoky turkey leg for lunch which didn't use any food allergen. And I also ate onigiri that I brought from my home to compensate carbs.
For snack, salt popcorn, my favorite 😋
What was really surprising was that there was a curry and rice without wheat, soy and milk!! I ordered low allergic menu, and then the personnel had come, bringing tablet and let me tab the food allergy. Then the menu suitable for me come out😍
You should use this system if you come to the Tokyo Disney Land!!!!
Trying to figure out what I wanted for breakfast this morning was a little tricky - nothing sounded good. I wanted to incorporate the #butternutsquash I had roasted during #mealprep but recently found out that only 1/4 cup is #fodmapfriendly - so what 🌱 could I add to help supplement it?
Thanks to a recent post by @gutrevolution I had my inspiration: spaghetti squash!
The @monashfodmap app has spaghetti squash as a green item, so it was the perfect addition to help round out this "take whatever you can find in your fridge, put an egg on top, and make it into a skillet" breakfast! 🍳🍴
•1 egg • spinach • 1/4 cup butternut squash roasted with cumin, s&p, and garlic infused EVOO • spaghetti squash • scallions • coffee - all the coffee!! • dig in! •
Sitting here at the airport, well before dawn, having a homemade pumpkin breakfast cookie and a @starbucks Americano. I saw those pumpkin scones, and I saw McDonalds, and other crap around the airport and wasn't even close to wanting any of it. I know how sick I would feel, and who needs that on top of being tired? Nobody. It isn't as hard as you might think to prep and travel. It is comforting to know I have a couple safe options with me. I could let my eating restrictions be overwhelming, but I am learning one trip at a time! #myguthatesme#guthealth#lowfodmap#lowfodmapdiet#fodmapdiet#fodmap#fodmapfriendly#healthyme#healthylife
Creamy Chicken + White wine pasta | I refuse to ban any foods from my life, instead I just try + make them a little more nutritious, like this delicious little dish.
Add olive oil to a heated pan then add in diced chicken and brown. Add diced veggies such as sweet potato, zucchini, broccoli and anything else you fancy and slightly brown. Add in a cup of boiling water, a dash of white wine, paprika, chilli, parsley + salt, then mix through well. Cover and let it simmer away. Once most of the liquid has been soaked up and you're ready to serve add in a few tablespoons of cottage cheese and a few teaspoons of sour cream and mix through well, then let simmer for just a few mins stirring as you need to. Remove from the heat + serve with buckwheat, quinoa or rice pasta or even just have all by itself. More recipes on the website

Playing it safe this morning after eating too much #lowfodmap#hummus yesterday 😰🤰🏼🤰🏼Small portion of cinnamon porridge, half an #orange and half a small #banana
Lesson learnt: wait longer between meals and be extra careful with the chickpeas 😔I've not done the challenges yet but I have a strong suspicion oligo-GOS is my kryptonite 😣
Also, I made a coconut cookie sheet -- mind the "bite mark" in the middle there. I accidentally stuck my finger there, and then accidentally put that chunk in my face hole before the cookie was ready. It needs more work though! I'll share my recipe once it's perfected. It will be grain free and egg free and sugar free too! Stay tuned...
Doesn't look super appetizing but I assure you it was! Zoodles with fennel bulb, fresh cucumber (raw, peeled) and fresh dill with wild pacific salmon, tons of lemon and olive oil, salt and pepper. Simple, tasty and nourishing! I'm on day 3 of my herbal antibiotics and so far feeling ok 🤞🤞🤞
Bakers delight have brought out a new Low FODMAP wholemeal loaf. Verdict: very fresh, and soft 🍞 This loaf is a nice alternative to gluten-free bread which usually isn't as spongy! Pick up your free sample to try 🥖🥖🥖

Good morning everyone! After 4 weeks away it is so nice to wake up in my own bed and be able to cook my own breakfast 🍳
