Learn to soothe your digestive difficulties with 100 delicious recipes from The Low-FODMAP Cookbook!
FODMAPs are carbohydrates that are not properly absorbed in the small intestine by people with digestive difficulties such as IBS, Crohn's Disease, and Colitis. Once these carbohydrates reach the large intestine, they cause many uncomfortable symptoms such as gas, bloating, and pain. The forbidden list of foods is extensive, but The Low-FODMAP Cookbook combines both taste and nutrition to create delightful recipes. The book includes a low-FODMAP eating plan that explains in detail which foods are not allowed and why. These recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks are so simple and delicious, they'll appeal to the whole family!

I'm a long-time follower of Dianne's blog, Delicious as it Looks and I was excited to learn that she was coming out with a cookbook. Unsurprisingly, it does not disappoint; at first glance the photography is gorgeous and jumps off the pages at you. The Low FODMAP Cookbook is a great resource for both recipes and information about the low FODMAP diet. It begins with an explanation of the diet and why it is useful for many IBS sufferers, then goes through a suggested food list (fruits, veg, sugars, vegetarian specific). One of the most challenging aspects of going low FODMAP is grocery shopping, and Dianne has some great tips in the Navigating the FODMAP World chapter. Meal plans and DIY pantry/fridge basics are also included. As for the recipes, there's a huge variety that should suit all tastes. I haven't tried everything yet but I have liked what I've made: - the pumpkin pecan granola is a great breakfast option and now I can stop buying it at exorbitant prices. - the balsamic and blue spinach salad has just the right amount of flavour and crunch - the maple marinated salmon - the strawberry and rhubarb galette All in all I'd highly recommend this for low FODMAP beginners up to experienced FODMAPers who are looking for some recipe inspiration. It's definitely worth it.
This is THE BEST Low-FODMAP cookbook I have seen (and I've checked out close to two dozen from my local library). In fact, it is the only cookbook that I have ever owned that hasn't had a chance to collect dust - Low-FODMAP or otherwise. It is now the ONLY cookbook I use. The recipes are all delicious, accessible, and straightforward; they span a variety of flavor profiles, but without any crazy ingredients or techniques that you've never heard of before. If I could rationalize buying this book twice, I would.
I highly recommend this book. I have had digestive problems for a long time. I found this book very informative and a useful resource and instructional guide to the ins and outs of Fodmaps. The first chapter was great in explaining how Fodmaps affect the digestive process and our health and well-being. Dianne definitely went through a long process to find her good health balance. I am glad she shared her practical experience and knowledge with us. The recipes are easy to read and follow. The carrot cake and raspberry thumbprint cookies are my favorites. Dianne took her own pictures of the recipes and they are excellent. If you have digestive issues, this book is a must read.
I love this book. I have many digestive issues and the recipes and information are very helpful. The book does a great job of explaining low-fodmap and digestive issues. As a family, we have made many of the recipes and find them very easy to follow. Our favorites are the Curried Lamb Stew and Cranberry Orange Scones. If you suffer from digestive issues this book will be a great resource and full of amazing recipes with great pictures to go along with them.
