The fifth instalment of our cooking video series brings us to a light and delicious roasted vegetable salad. Perfect for a picnic or potluck, in this recipe we have added chicken instead of lentils (which is called for in the recipe) along with quinoa, for a wonderfully balanced dish.
One of the things I highly recommend clients who are suffering from digestive symptoms such as gas, bloating, abdominal discomfort, and other bowel issues is to always bring something that you know you can eat, when going to other’s houses for dinner. This ensures that you have at least one item that works for your body and this will help you reduce the amount of non-low FODMAP foods you consume.
When eating out I usually recommend bringing along something else as well… a nice digestive tea! Something with fennel, peppermint, chamomile and other herbs that help digestion. If you are going to have foods that don’t agree with your body, like garlic, onions, etc. at least help your body break it down with a soothing cup of tea at the end of the meal.
The first step if you’re looking to improve irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or another digestive disorder or disease, is to understand more about the Low FODMAP diet and if it can help.
