    A Less Irritable Life

Odds are that at some point you're going to have to say no to foods, drinks, or even social situations that may affect your IBS. And sometimes, people won't take no for an answer without also getting an explanation.

So prepare some responses for the most likely questions that you'll get asked. Try saying "Thanks for the offer, but it won't sit well with my tummy. But I do hope that you enjoy it". I find that being firm and also pleasant is a good way to stop further debate.

Stuffings are delicious, but are usually made with onion and regular bread, plus sometimes dried fruit. So unless it's specially made for you, then it's best to avoid it.

Seasonings are another problem. You can potentially cut away the outside bits of meat, but it's not so easy to do with veggies. But, check with the cook, because sometimes they'll season meat and veg with fresh or dried herbs that are low FODMAP.

This is one of my go-to breakfasts. And the one on the menu today. Vanilla and coconut porridge with kiwi fruit. I often eat it topped with ground pepitas, but today I've used my nut and seed sprinkle for some extra nutritional variety. The fibre boost does my gut wonders.

Since it's likely that Christmas feasting and partying will be disruptive to your gut, try to keep your belly as happy as possible before the celebrations. Then you'll be able to handle a little more when it comes to the crunch.

This isn't just about food choices though. Yes, it's good to be mindful of your food choices, but also consider other things. This could be watching your stress levels, doing regular exercise, or anything else that keeps your tummy happy.

I’ve got a new one for you… Tomato & Green Bean Salad. It’s easy to make, filled with flavour and colour, and so good as a simple side dish. Plus, it quickly brings freshness and nutrition to any plate.

And with it’s beautiful vibrant red and green colours, it would be lovely on a Christmas table. Especially if you live in Australia where it’s going to be hot.

Most hosts are willing to make adjustments for you, if they're given advance warning. But don't wait until the last minute to speak to them. Give them a call today!

Ask what they're planning on making and then give some suggestions on how they can adapt it to help you. Keep it simple and focus on the big things, especially onion and garlic. And offer to bring something to help them out.

Alcohol is a known gut irritant that can turn a sensitive gut upside down. So approach alcohol carefully because it may undo your hard work on making good food choices.

First, consider whether the alcoholic beverage (and anything you mix it with) is low or high FODMAP. Next, consider the effect of the alcohol too, based on how much you know you can tolerate. If you do choose to drink alcohol, try to drink only while eating because food helps to buffer the effects.

The safest main meal choices for Christmas dinner are likely to be roast meats and veggies. So long as they aren't prepared with garlic or onion.

You may need to ask the cook to put some veggies in a separate tray, or at least to one side of a tray, to make sure yours are safe.
