FODMAP Nut Butter Popcorn

June 30, 2015
FODMAP Nut Butter Popcorn

I’m nuts about nut butter and with lots of FODMAP friendly versions out there it means the variations for this recipe are endless! I even purchased an Argan nut butter while I was recently in Morocco. It’s fabulously nutty and like other nut butters its all natural and no added nasties to upset my stomach! Continue Reading…

FODMAP Friendly Ham Hock Soup

One thing I miss the most while traveling is cooking!! So when I returned back to Melbourne on a freezing cold winters day after being in the 38ºC heat of Marrakech, I thought this soup would be the perfect winter warmer to get back into the swing of things! Continue Reading…

Fructose Friendly ANZAC Biscuits

April 23, 2015
ANZAC BISCUITS | I've modified a family recipe to created these fructose friendly and dairy free ANZAC biscuits! Recipe is up on the blog now, link in profile. You can also read a little about my visit to Gallipoli. Lest we forget.
Two years ago I was lucky enough to travel to Gallipoli in Turkey and pay tribute to our fallen soldiers. Baking a batch of ANZAC biscuits is a must do around ANZAC day so I decided it was a must to modify an old family recipe to be fructose friendly and dairy free.

FODMAP Friendly Za'atar Chips

After another trip to the supermarket spent searching through labels to find plenty of onion and garlic, I decided it was time to make my own chips and maybe create a slightly healthier option too! This recipe is super easy and the result being a chip that looks like you bought them from a gourmet deli. The best part being, you can flavour them however you please!

Curried Pumpkin Soup

Curried Pumpkin Soup

With winter now approaching us, a delicious warming soup is bound to be cooking in many kitchens. The base to many soups starts with onions however this can be easily avoided to produce a low FODMAP soup. Soup is also a cheap alternative, and I’m sure anyone with a food intolerance could do with saving a few pennies from time to time! We all know how expensive specialised products are!

Fructose Friendly Pumpkin Crumble

Pumpkin Crumble

Something I really miss eating on a fructose friendly and low FODMAP diet is apple crumble or apple and rhubarb crumble, I’m sure you can all relate! I have been craving it the past few days and all of a sudden I had a brilliant idea. My craving for crumble, plus an excess of pumpkin in the fridge, equals Pumpkin Crumble!!

Oily fish is well known as a good source of omega 3 fatty acids which hold many health benefits. I often find myself not eating enough fish so I wanted to create a quick, healthy and yummy recipe that of course was fructose friendly and would encourage me to reap the benefits that the good ole’ oily fish has to offer!

I’ve never been a huge fan of chicken breasts, they just doesn’t seem to have the same delicious flavour as chicken off the bone. I whipped these drumsticks up the other night to have on the BBQ whilst we had friends over and they were a hit! They don’t take too much time prepping yet are full of flavour. Continue Reading…

I’m sure that people think I am strange when I stand in the aisle at the supermarket checking the ingredients and 10 or more brands of the same product, only to find it contains onion or garlic in some form! This is especially true when it comes to dips so its much easier to make your own.

Over the weekend we had some good friends come to visit and as I usually do, I decided to get cooking! I love the fact that when you are cooking for yourself you know EXACTLY what is going into your meal and don’t end up with any little surprises! One of our visitors was lactose intolerant so coming up with a FODMAP/dairy free dessert was a must. We couldn’t have anyone missing out on dessert, that is the best part of a meal!

Nuts-min

Previously I always loved snacking on honey coated nuts and now days I’m just jealous when I’m visit my local farmers market and I see all the tasty coated morsels! Its fairly rare that there are ones that are fructose friendly, so i decided to create my own! It only takes a few minutes and minimum ingredients to create a delicious healthy snack. Nuts are packed with protein and good oils, however you will have to use your will power and not eat them all at once if you want to stick within the FODMAP guidelines!! Continue Reading…
