The FODMAP Friendly Vegan

I am passionate about showing those with digestive issues like myself that food is not the enemy, and that we can enjoy wholesome, plant-based dishes without suffering from the digestive storm aftermath.


If FODMAPs cause intestinal symptoms, you need to watch what you eat. It is not wise to avoid FODMAPs altogether, but it is possible to limit them. Small amounts of FODMAPs usually do not cause any symptoms, although this can be different for each individual. You can choose a FODMAP-restricted diet, also known as low-FODMAP, or avoid certain FODMAPs, to which you are sensitive, as much as possible. The good news is that you can enjoy your food and drinks even with a low-FODMAP diet.
