    Awesome! I’m in desperate need of healthy low FODMAP recipes!!! ?

  • Nikki says:

    Love your site! Thank you for sharing your story and your knowledge ☺

    Over 3 years ago, I started having increasingly dreadful tummy bloating and discomfort, with weight loss and several episodes of doubling-up abdo pains, resulting in hospital admissions to A&E. After an Ultrasound scan, MRI scan, colonoscooy and endoscopy, the different consultants I saw just said they couldn’t really derermine what was wrong and, in the end, I was told it was probably IBS – and to manage as best I can!!
    Long story short, I saw a Naturopath who found I was not digesting gluten properly. I cut out gluten and felt so much better, but gradually bloating and discomfort returned 2 years later. Saw the Naturopath again, and not only did he find that I have SIBO, but also that I am not producing enough lactase enzymes to digest dairy products or lipase enzymes to digest fats!
    He suggested I stick to low FODMAP foods, continue with gluten free and try to go lactose free and low fat with my diet, and to take digestive enzymes and Oregano Oil capsules… Wow!

    Within a week, felt soon much better… I could hold in my tummy without discomfort, wear my jeans again, pains gone – and going to the loo almost became a pleasure, lol ?

    So to anyone else wondering what they can possibly eat, like I did, it really is possible to enjoy eating, with some key adjustments, research and patience!
    Loving your recipes…Please keep them coming! Gives me so much inspiration!
    Take care, Nikki x
