Winter means short days and limited daylight hours. So what better way to get things done than have a FODMAP friendly dinner that is versatile, delicious and basically cooks itself! Continue Reading…

FODMAP Resources, Travel

Culinary Backstreets Barcelona

June 17, 2015
Salted Cod - Barcelona

If you are a food enthusiast (like me!) and love to experience the food of different cultures when you travel then I think I have just the thing for you! Of course travelling with a food intolerance or allergy of any sort can be tough. Some other cultures don’t have the same awareness of allergies and intolerances as we do in Australia and explaining the importance of you not eating fructose, gluten or other FODMAPs in another language can be even harder!!

FODMAP Friendly Za’atar Chips

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!

Dukkah Marinated Drumsticks

March 23, 2015

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…


Dairy Free Strawberry Cheesecake

March 15, 2015

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!

Cinnamon Nuts

March 13, 2015

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…


FODMAP Friendly Lasagne

Lasagne served-min

One thing that I miss eating the most being on a fructose free and FODMAP diet is my mum’s lasagne! It was always the meal that we requested when she asked us what we wanted for dinner and being from a family of four children, it wasn’t a meal that she always had time to prepare. Whenever we did get lasagne for dinner there were no complaints to be heard! So when it was requested to me the other night to make lasagne for dinner I thought maybe some of you would appreciate and fructose and FODMAP friendly version. Continue Reading…


Choc Peanut Butter Sandwich

Well apparently it ‘National Peanut Butter Day’ in the states today, I’m not sure that such a thing exists in Australia but I don’t need a reason to eat peanut butter! Peanut Butter is one of my favourites and what better way than to have it than sandwiched between two rounds of chocolatey goodness. This ‘chocolate’ is also dairy free and remind me of the good old coconut rough chocolates from the milkbar. Continue Reading…

I’m very excited that the blog of ‘The Fructose Friendly Chef’ has launched and I can’t wait to hear what you all think!! The Fructose Friendly Chef started just over a year ago with an Instagram account and has grown from there. The blog is going to be an easier way for me to share recipes with you all, I also plan to review products and places to eat out as they can be sometimes hard to come by. I must say a massive thankyou to my talented friend Nerida at Flying Pig Design who helped me with the setup and design of the blog! Another thankyou to my sister Kayla for helping me with the photos for the ‘About Me’ section, to find out more about me and my story head over and check it out. Finally a big thank you to all my followers who have supported me on Instagram and Facebook, you have all inspired me to take the next step in building this blog. Feel free to leave me feedback and I look forward to my blog becoming a valuable resource to my fellow FM’ers and FODMAP friends!
