Hello FODMAPers & Friends!
During IBS Awareness month, I requested your input about future blog topics…and there was a request to provide a quick and easy way to describe the low FODMAP diet to friends and family. So…the team at For a Digestive Peace of Mind, worked behind the scenes to create a few resources for you. We call them Grab + Go Passes.
Instead of creating a long list of all the high and low FODMAP foods…we called out just the key items that might be an issue when dining out and created a small information card for the chef! We also created one for the teacher and a general one that can be shared with friends, your doctor or simply as a resource for yourself. Click here to find the Grab + Go PDFs and print.
The Grab + Go Passes provide a space where you can write in & personalize your nutrition guidelines. You can also laminate them for safe keeping. We designed the Grab + Go Pass for the teacher in a tag format so that you can attach to a backpack or tote, if desired.
The purpose of these Grab + Go Passes is to help describe the low FODMAP diet in easy terms and to highlight the primary foods to avoid in restaurants or schools. Again, this is a simplified low FODMAP tool but we think it will be quite useful for the FODMAPer, the chef, the teacher and others!
We’d love your feedback! Feel free to leave a comment at the end of this post.
In other news..there is just 9 days left of June (how in the world did that happen…time flies!)…and that means that Cedars Sinai’s matching (up to $100,000) campaign for research is ending soon. If you are not aware…as part of IBS Awareness month and my I Believe in your Story campaign, I encouraged donations for IBS research. If you are interested in being part of the solution to find a cure and effective treatments for IBS & SIBO, please consider making a donation. Since Cedars Sinai has a matching donor up to $100,000 and thus far my followers have contributed almost $4,000….this will be doubled!! Yahoo!! University of Michigan has also received many donations though I don’t have the $ amount yet. BOTH institutions are leading the way in the United States in IBS and SIBO research. With research funding limited these days…they could benefit from your help. Click here to learn more & donate!
Have a GREAT week!
