Summer is well under way, Hooray! I’m sure many of you have exciting vacation plans like camping trips, cottage weekends, day trips to the beach, and backyard BBQs. Hopefully lots to look forward to, whether you are having a stay-cation or going away.
When I’m on vacation, I do like to indulge a bit… We tend to eat a few more meals out and a few more sweet treats. As someone who has struggled with IBS in the past (I am now 99.9% better!) I am still very aware of the food I put in my body and do my best to make good choices. If you follow my blog, you may know that I follow and write about following the Low FODMAP diet. I am proud to say that we help thousands of readers every month to effectively implement this diet to reduce symptoms of IBS and digestive distress.
If you yourself are a fellow follower of the FODMAP diet, than you know how hard it is to find low FODMAP versions of your favourite foods. This week the team and I thought we would share some low FODMAP treat options. It is pretty unrealistic to not indulge at some point over the summer. But if you are someone who struggles from digestive distress or IBS, picking a treat that won’t cause you digestive distress will ensure you don’t ruin your summer fun!
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.
