Part 1 of a special holidays low FODMAP recipes episode. If you struggle for ideas of what to prepare for your next special holidays or Christmas, that is IBS friendly for you, but also tastes delicious for your family and friends, here are some simple ideas.

In this episode, and for the next couple of weeks, we are going to talk about low FODMAP recipes for the holidays. I have chosen to do this so that you could get some ideas about what to prepare for those special occasions like Christmas or other special holidays that you may celebrate with your family. You may be inviting guests to your house, and if you are in charge of doing most of the cooking, you can easily prepare these low FODMAP dishes for everyone else as well and they will still taste fantastic. Alternatively, if you are invited to someone else’s home, you could bring a couple of these safe dishes and at least you will have something delicious and low FODMAP to eat.

If you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome and live in Australia, around Melbourne, you are in luck. Foddies Cafe' is a gluten-free, low FODMAP restaurant offering mouth watering dishes for all of us suffering from various food intolerance and allergies. The owners of Foddies Cafe' Chrissy and Luke are also working hard at providing tasty low FODMAP options to the rest of Australia and who knows...eventually the rest of the world.

Starting off with an online store, the popularity of their low FODMAP food products prompted Chrissy and Luke to start up a café where the public can physically go to enjoy intolerance-friendly dishes. Taking their commitment seriously, gluten cross-contamination is minimised by keeping dedicated food prep areas, appliances and utensils. Though their emphasis is on low FODMAP and gluten-free diets, they also cater to other dietary needs. They coined the name Foddie to help create a positive spin on digestive problems that are so often discussed in a negative light.
