My longterm low FODMAP diet

The elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet is not a long term diet. Many high FODMAP foods are nutritious and excellent for maintaining healthy gut bacteria, so we need to reintroduce as many as we can back into our diet. Here are some things I've discovered.


Low FODMAP Southern Fried Chicken

When I saw this recipe for southern fried chicken on a low FODMAP blog,  I immediately remembered the great flavour of the KFC coating from my childhood and knew I had to try to recreate that flavour, but with (once) happy chickens and much less salt and oil!

Prawn cocktail revisited

I've recently rediscovered my love for prawn cocktail. It was always my starter of choice at restaurants when I was younger and I suddenly realised I'd not eaten it for years. Now it's regularly back on my lunch menu.

BBQ Season: Pulled Pork

Pulled pork is one of my barbecue favourites, far preferable than any sausage. It's very simple to make and is a great dish for entertaining as it once you have it in the oven, a bit of gentle forking just before serving is all that's needed.

Low FODMAP Staffordshire Oatcakes

Growing up with relatives in the Midlands, one of the special landmark treats of staying with my grandparents was having bacon and oatcakes for breakfast.  Lightly fried and served with a couple of rashers of bacon and a blob of ketchup, it made for a delicious start to the day. 

Low FODMAP Beef Satay

I love this recipe and it's quick and easy to make. The satay sauce is lovely, thick and flavoursome and the dish has loads of vegetables in, which I love.
