YUUUUMMM!

breakfast sausage & bookI made the sausages on Saturday and then Russ whipped up this nice breakfast for us on Sunday.  I had never made my own homemade sausage patties before and found the recipe so easy and delightful!  I may never buy store bought breakfast sausages again.  I upped the sage in the recipe a little because I love the flavor.  Soooooooo good!

    YOU are my favorite resource for low-FODMAP recipes! If only I had time to actually use a cook book! With two little kids and a legal career, we tend to stick to the same low-FODMAP meals. I’m getting bored. I need to just buy your cookbook!

    • sandra heller

      You are definitely my favorite and, may I add, only resource for low fod-map recipes. Honestly, I just learned about such things after I was diagnosed two years ago at the age of eighty! I have struggledd with IBS all my life but didn’t have a diagnosis until then. Giving up some favorite foods such as mango, brussel sprouts, cabbage watermelon etc. was a sacrifice but when my youngest daughter sent me your e-mail columns, I felt saved, relieved, encouraged. You have really brought some change into my eating life and as an avid cook,still, I am enjoying your insight and recipes.

  • GAIL

    Would like a chance at the cookbook. I am always excited every time there is a new post. Always great stuff, so helpful, wonderful recipes.

  • Kathy

    I usually just modify my pre-FODMAP life recipes, doing things like substituting garlic oil for chopped garlic. Some old favorite dishes are off limits now though so I would love some FODMAP friendly inspiration!

  • Jenna Stic

    For low fodmap recipes I came to you first! I make the buffalo chicken meatballs ALL the time and they are an absolute hit! I’ve also made the gnocchi pasta dish and it was equally delish. I bought the low fodmap recipe book by the fodmap goddess sue shepherd and it has been a lifesaver for my time and my tummy. Some of my favorites are the lemon chicken wings, penne with meatballs, pesto sauce, and the chocolate chip cookies. I’m not much of a cook, so these fodmap friendly recipes are a god-send.

    Thanks for your blog! I’m very curious to see what you bring back about probiotics.

  • Monisha

    Love your blog and all the low Fodmap recipes – they not only taste great but I know there will be no stomach issues after eating them! Also like Sue Shepherds recipes

  • Debby

    I, too, am a big fan of your blog. I have Patsy Catsos’ cookbook, but I need more inspiration. I’m not a very organized or enthusiastic cook. I’m still fairly new to the low FODMAP diet. I’ve used some of your online recipes and have adapted some paleo recipes with limited success. What I really need is another cookbook for further inspiration. This book looks amazing (just the sausage recipe alone!) Would love to own it.

  • Luci

    My first thought was like all your other followers. You are my go to girl! You have introduced and educated so many of us about FODMAPS. I have studied courses by you , Patsy, and Sue! So grateful for your passion and dedication. Wish I could attend Harvard this week, but I live in Nashville, but I will be visiting Boston in 3 weeks to tour colleges including Harvard with my son.

  • Ann

    Since finally coming to realize that FODMAPs in my diet were the culprits, I have nearly stopped cooking. I used to love to create meals for my family, but now I feel stymied. The internet helps me to find appropriate recipes, but a cookbook like this would be terrific!

  • Wendy

    My biggest resource is not your 21 day tummy books.
    It was just following the list and finding recipes on line, one book from Sue Shepard, a few websites……oh I was lost.

    This is a book I’d love to win! Planning is so hard for me, and with multiple chronic illnesses, hubby is often the one cooking, so planning is essential!

    The muffins look delicious. and yummm on homemade sausage, I’ve made it before, it is yummy. I’d love a recipe, I just made it off the cuff. 🙂

  • Megan

    This blog, your handouts, and your instagram, have been the most valuable resources to me for both information recipes. I also find ideas on Pinterest and Sue Shepherds new book. Would love to win this cookbook! And Thank you!

  • Susan J Bucholtz

    I did the 21 day tummy plan and your recipes were the best. I especially loved the soups and the stuffed eggplant. My favorite spices prior to the low Fodmap eating plan, I used garlic powder and dried onion as the main seasoning. I had not had experience in garlic oil, turmeric, curry, or chives. Thanks to your plan, I was very pleased with the taste and appeal of your recipes. For that reason, I find myself checking your website and blog as my first resource when it comes to fod-map knowledge and recipes. Since this recipe book has your endorsement, please count me in for the give away. I will also be anxious to read the results of your probiotics education at Harvard.

  • Kelly

    Your blog and the Internet are my greatest resources when it comes to the Low FODMAP diet. Oh, and my GP. You have changed my life. Thank you!

  • Sherri

    Other than your fabulous blog, I have enjoyed many of the recipes from 21 Day Tummy….another cookbook would provide more inspiration and keep my momentum going when either time is crunched(always love the meal plans and grocery lists), boredom creeps in or my children are just looking for something new and yummy!

  • Arlene

    Surfing the internet most always helps, but today grocery shopping in Florida at a Publix supermarket I learned that all Boar’s Head deli meats are gluten free. Not only that, but they had a small free recipe booklet for gluten free ideas to make. I can’t wait to try them. They all sounded good.

  • Jess

    This blog has been one of the best starting points for me, but the more I learn, the more I’m actually finding it pretty easy to adapt favourite recipes to make them low FODMAPs! I’ve been reading a lot of other fantastic blogs doing the same thing too 🙂

  • Kristi

    Learning how to incorporate a low FODMAP diet into my busy lifestyle has been revolutionary! I finally have some relief from my abdominal pain! Winning this cookbook would help in my quest to put together a “2 week freezer meal” plan that is low FODMAP friendly! Thank you for your posts and comments – soooo very helpful!

  • Karen

    At this point, you are my best source for FODMAP information. I trust your information much more than some of the other sites I’ve looked over.

  • Emma

    I have found a couple of great blogs (including this one) that I get almost all of my low-FODMAP recipes from. But I’m always looking for more!

  • Rachel

    Your site and Suzanne Perazzini’s blog, Strands of My Life, are my prime resources for FODMAP information and delicious recipes that never fail! I never thought I’d be able to eat a delicious meal without onions or garlic and thanks to you, I can!

  • Rhiannon

    Katie—your blog is definitely #1 !! Other valuable resources have been the MONASH website and a few University and Medical Center websites (a.k.a. Stanford, Mayo, UMich).

  • Mollie

    Your blog is my number one resource. My doctor referred me to a dietician. She was OK, but she sent me to your blog. It was her best tip!

  • Pat

    I’m a relatively new low Fodmap eater. Your blog is great. It leaves me feeling there is always some new dish to look forward to trying.

  • Trish

    Having been recently advised to follow Fodmap …last week…I have found your site to have the most consistent helpful information. I have also found the other sites noted above and some independent sites and have found whenever there are discrepancies I defer to u. When I search questions inevitably ur site is at or near the top of the search…thanks for sharing so much!!

  • Dvora

    My best resource for low FODMAP info is you :). Once I’ve got the facts, it is really nice to go through family favorites and figure out what we can still eat, sometimes with minor adjustments. Makes it feel like a lot less change!

  • Christy

    Your blog, website and the Monash app on my phone are my most frequented resources. Your recipes make me feel a little more normal!

  • Jaimie Edmunds

    You have always been my favorite resource for low FODMAPS recipes and information. I also have the Monash U app and have started using Pinterest to find ideas. Thanks for the opportunity to win the cookbook. Sounds fabulous and I will most likely buy it, but winning would be awesome! 🙂

  • Reagen

    You, Kate, have been my favorite Low FODMAP Recipe Resource so far! Often times, I open your email and there’s a recipe highlighted and it’s like you have been reading my mind!! I was having a craving for sweets and you provided the delicious recipe for Peanut Butter & Banana Muffins just in time! I am very new to the Low FODMAP lifestyle and it has changed my life completely! Eating food used to make me miserable and now I feel like a new woman! Since I am so new to the diet I would LOVE to have the 28-day Plan to help me broaden my repertoire of meals to prepare! Thank you for your emails/website, it has truly changed my life for the better!

  • Sarah

    I don’t know what I would do without your Blog. Every time I try to add something back into my diet, I get sick again. This book sounds perfect for me.

  • Edviga

    When I was first diagnosed I found the food lists on the internet confusing and contradictory- even from reliable university based sources and while I am a good cook and can make substitutions, I am always looking for new information and ideas.

    My go toe: Love your site and Sue Shepard but also love the writing and recipes on Donna Collins website/blog Fructose Free Me http://fructosefreeme.com

  • Jessica

    Google…Google is my source for low FODMAP and that’s exactly how I found you! And yes, I would also love to have this book to add to my ‘non-.com’ sources! 😉

  • Cyndi

    I actually get excited when you send an email because I know I will be learning something new and wonderful. The cookbook sounds awesome and something that would be an adventure exploring. Thank you so much for opportunity to win a book like this.

  • Nicole D

    Aside from your blog and cookbook… I’ve created a pinterest Low FODMAP board that helps be collect ideas from various blogs and resources!

  • Linda dc

    Monash University’s Fodmap booklet has helped me a lot, I haven’t tried their app (no smartphone) but finding your blog has been fantastic, I have learned so much more, thank you.

  • lauren

    pinterest has been SO helpful! that’s how i found your blog!
    thank you for the chance to win the new cookbook…new recipes are always a good thing! 🙂

  • Sabrina

    YOU are one of my best sources for FODMAP information! I look forward to you recipes and being able to try them for myself. Thank you for posting them!

  • Melissa

    I follow you and Patsy on Pinterest–I have a FODMAP board that I email to the patients I see and, of course, reference your and Patsy’s websites. Thank you for all your resources to help us dietitians help our patients better!

  • Jennifer Kershner

    Kate Scarlata is my number #1 source. I can trust your insights & food recommendations. My other #1 source is the “21-Day Tummy” by you and Liz Vaccariello. Whenever I feel a flare-up I immediately start following the daily menus and I feel better within days. And there are several menu items from that book that I eat almost daily, like the Belly Buster Smoothie. That book was a real life saver for me when I first learned of it, ordered it and began following the 21 day menus. I will continue to refer to those menus but with the holidays approaching your “28 Day Plan” will be another life saver!

  • Christine

    My favorite FODMAP recipes come from you—your blogs and cookbook. I’m still searching for more information, as I am finding it difficult to make a commitment to the narrowed selection of foods. Thank you for helping us all..

  • Eileen

    I usually start with a google search (“Low FODMAP_______”) and it almost always leads me to you Kate! Keep up the great work.

  • Jenny Baker

    My biggest resource is the “21 Day Tummy” that you wrote along with Liz Vaccariello. I have both books, and they are constants on my kitchen counter. While I still refer to them all the time for ideas, I’d love an additional book to expand my options even more! Thanks the publishers of the “28 Day Plan” for giving away two books, I hope I’m one of the lucky recipients!

  • Mary Sosinski

    I’m new to the low-FODMAP diet after four years of eliminating almost everything. My family says I’m on the no-food, no-fun diet. I’m hoping this diet will allow me to add things I’ve been avoiding. I’m desperate for recipes/ideas, especially menu planning. I look forward to your e-mails and am truly grateful that you so graciously share your knowledge and gifts with us.

  • Denise Robinson

    Your FODMOP shopping list is always in my handbag, specially useful for when those ‘senior moments’ occur! The 28 Day Plan should also help

  • Ronalyn

    I didn’t have a favorite resource until I found your site via Zlata Faerman’s article, on Huffington Post, “I’m coming out of the (water) closet”.

  • Veronica Hoskins

    I’m a newbie to IBS and FODMAP and am just starting my six-week restriction diet TODAY! I have to say it’s been an overwhelming process – one mixed with frustration and sadness (thinking about not eating M&Ms for six weeks) and then excitement about finally and hopefully figuring out what is making my body so angry at me (after two years of not knowing what’s been going on). I’ve spent a lot of time preparing to tackle this and you’ve been an absolute go-to (you’ve made low FODMAP sound exciting) and I’ve also been following Stephanie Clairmont.

  • Sally

    The recipes on your blog are always a go-to resource for tasty dishes and inspiration! Thank you so much for all of your work, research, guidance, and encouragement in the complicated Low FODMAP world.

  • denise

    Since my daughter was recently diagnosed with IBD, we have been told to follow a low fodmap diet. As it is a daily challenge, we LOVE your blog tips and recipes and would LOVE a chance to win the new cookbook.

  • Paul Kelly

    Up until recently wikipedia was the best resource for fructose malabsorption. Now your blog and related books are the best. It’s great to finally have some support.


  • Kathy smith

    After following a strict low-FODMAP diet for over a year now I am becoming a little bored. For me that is dangerous, so some new recipes would be so helpful. I really appreciate your blog and I have used some of Patsy’s recipes too.

  • Debbie

    I use various low Fodmap lists to provide substitutions for recipes, but your blog and 21 day tummy book are my go to for inspiration and have proven to be delicious every time! Would love to win this cookbook. Thanks

  • Bev

    Your blog has been a great help. I finally found out what my problem was after 68 years when my sister wad diagnosed with frutose malabsorption and lactose intolerance. Had to do my own digging as GP did not know what frutose malabsorption even was. This has been a huge change for me. My husband will not eat the way I need to, so my diet does not vary much. Would love more help. Keep up the good work!

  • Deirdre

    Pinterest has been a great source, although you always have to check carefully for hidden ingredients. I use the Monash University Low-FODMAP App to identify okay ingredients and tend to modify most recipes now for my sensitivities.

  • Christina

    I use the 21 Day Tummy book ALL the time and would LOVE to have this for more easy to make recipes!! Thanks for the offer – I hope I win !!!

  • Kathleen

    Your blog has wonderful resources! I also love heading over to EA Stewart’s blog and navigating through her recipes. It can be easy enough to make simple swaps to create a fodmap friendly recipe (especially with GF recipes!) but it is always nice to see creative solutions I may not have thought of before! Thank you for all the delicious suggestions!

  • Becky

    You are my best resource! I’m dying to find new recipes that not only I CAN eat, but also my kids WILL eat! Thanks for the opportunity! I hope to win a copy!

  • Jamie

    My go to for a Low FODMAP recipe is your blog. I am the only Low FODMAP eater in the house and your recipes have passed the taste test with the rest of the family. Thank you!

  • Maree Kniest

    Hello, Kate:
    Thank YOU for being one of my favorite resources for low-fodmap recipes. You love good flavor as much as I do. Also PINTEREST is a good resource. I would love to win this for some new inspiration!

  • Karen Trevey

    Your blog is hands-down my best FODMAP resource. Not only do I enjoy trying your recipes; you also spark my lagging creativity and you motivate me to experiment (safely) on my own. I’d be lost without you!

  • Lesley

    My biggest resource is your blog! My life has changed since I’ve found your blog. Thank you for your advice and recipes 🙂

  • BethB

    There are good websites with low-FODMAP recipes, but on some websites, some recipes include ingredients that include high-FODMAP ingredients. When I emailed one website owner about one of her recipes, her response was along the line of, “Oh, well it doesn’t bother me.” Okay, but you’re putting it out there for the world, right? My sense is that some are jumping on the low FODMAPs bandwagon without a good grounding in the basics.

    The Monash University app can be helpful even when in the grocery store, though I haven’t tried their recipes. : )

  • Terri

    I’ve had my mom on the FODMAP diet plan for about six weeks now. Definitely could use some new recipes! The GI doctor put her on this diet. Don’t think she has IBS but we are trying to figure it out. Your website has helped tremendously. I’ve told all my friends about you and your positive light! Thanks so much Kate!

  • Jessica

    I’m still new to the Low FODMOP diet so you are my first resource and I am enjoying the posts.
    I would love any recommendations for other sources!

  • Sylvia Ossorio

    Your blog helps me lots. I look forward to it and new recipes. I look through the internet on a daily basis when time allows it for new low FODMAP recipes. I am visiting an IBS specialist RD today for the first time here in Lo Angeles. Hope she can also help. I miss lots of fruits and vegetables.
    Thank you for all you do,

  • Cindy

    I’m pretty new at this and find myself in a rut, eating the same things over and over, the ones that I know I can tolerate. My situation is compounded by the fact that I don’t eat meat (i do eat dairy and fish) and I’ve debated adding chicken back into my diet after all these years since beans are no longer an option. I read your blog as inspiration and to gain new information and new recipes! Thank you…

  • Jan

    I scour the web for low FODMAP recipes – and usually end up on your site! Thanks for sharing so much great information.

  • SusanR

    I get a lot of recipes from you! My favorite is the Dijon Mustard Vinegarette with chives, that has become my go-to. Thanks!

  • Sarah

    My favorite resources for low FODMAP are Sue Shepherd’s cookbooks, as well as a bunch of blogs that I subscribe to. 🙂

  • Andrea Herschel

    I enjoy your most helpful blog posts. I also have used many of the recipes from the IBS Guru–Dr. Dierenfeldt’s website. Love the recipe for catsup which I’ve also used as a base for salad dressing and cocktail sauce.

  • Sandra Koch

    I find lots of recipes on Pinterest for low fodmap foods. This new book looks very exciting. I have felt so much better since adopting this plan.

  • Beverly

    I love your blog for FODMAP information and recipes. I also use many of the recipes from the blog, “Delicious as it Looks”, and the “21 Day Tummy” book. Thank you for all you do to keep us informed and eating without discomfort!

  • Donna Glynn

    Well everyone knows the best resource is Kate! I recommend Kate’s blog to all of my friends looking to try a low fodmap recipe or those in desperate need of the full diet. IDK where else I’d go!

  • Linda Cass

    I love to read the recipes on line, blog, Pinterest, google ingredients . They allow me to gain inspiration for some of the ingredients I have on hand to make a flavorful, healthy, safe meal. But there sure is something to be said for a nice book, too. Hope you pick me for this wonderful publication .

  • Catrin Jonsson

    I am a very new low-fodmap girl and just about to finish the challenges so that I know exactly what foods to avoid. As such I have not even looked at cookbooks yet but would love a great one to make this less traumatic. Thank you for a great blog site 🙂

  • Helen Ames

    Kate, I receive inspiration from your recipes but also use your clinical insights and evidence informed lists to adapt old favourites. As will all those ahead of me …….I love receiving new ideas and recipes to experiment with! Thanks for the opportunity to enter a draw!!! Helen

  • suzanne

    I use a lot of Paleo websites for recipe resources substituting fruit and veg when needed.
    For example I recently tried to add onion back in to a recipe and failed the test so the next time i made it I used the green part of scallions/ spring onions,it was just as tasty.
    Im always open to some new inspiration for ideas!
    Suze 🙂

    • Jenni

      I am new to the FODMAP world, and trying to get my head around it, my daughter is 9 and has IBS, this change in diet has been particularly hard for her, just last weekend she went to a friend’s birthday party and was desperate to have a piece of birthday cake, unfortunately she paid for it the next day. I guess a major change in diet is hard for us as adults, but for kids even harder, wanted her to try Almond Milk this morning and it ended up in tears. I have found your blog to be an invaluable source of information, would love a chance to win the meal planner and cookbook, need all the help I can get!!!

  • Terry Freemark

    I have found many recipes from googling “low fodmap.” In fact, that’s how I found out about YOUR website, and gotten many wonderful recipes from your website. Still looking for more resources, but love the discovery and exploration process. This cookbook looks wonderful!

  • Karen

    Like so many others here, you are my go to source for recipes. Otherwise I just try to adjust old family favorites….some are easier than others!

  • Allyson

    Thanks for letting us know about this new book! I have to admit, I’m quite overwhelmed with this whole FODMAP thing, and I am the worst cook ever. I typically refer to the FB group ‘Low Fodmap for Foodies’, your blog, and the books by Sue Shepherd and Patsy Catsos. I need all the help I can get. 🙂

  • Nancy V in Virginia

    I have Sue Shepherd’s two books with some good recipes, and I’m learning to convert regular recipes to Low-FODMAP ones. But, any new sources for recipes is very welcome! Thanks for this giveaway opportunity!

  • Donna

    I use multiple sources to find recipes that are low fodmap. Pinterest is good as well as your blog as well as Patsy Catsos. I’m always looking for new recipes that not only work for me, but also for my family so that I don’t have to cook double! Would love to have a low fodmap cookbook and would be great for my hubby on his nights to cook!

  • Jean Ubbelohde

    My top 3 resources are:
    1, Your work (very straight forward and you make it easy to understand a rather tricky subject). I know your work is valid and reliable (tasty, too:).
    2. FODMAP app
    3. My daughter who is a new RD with an interest in FODMAP since she comes from a family with “gut” issues:(.

    This cookbook looks like a great resource for my 81 yr old mother who also enjoys your resources. Keep up the good work!

  • Lisa Fehr

    Following your blog and a low FODMAP diet have made a huge difference to my life. I would love to get the new book.
    Thank you for all the time you put into helping the rest of us out.

  • Elizabeth

    After being diagnosed with a few health issues, I was placed on the low fodmap diet a little over a month ago. It’s been a struggle to say the least, but I get plenty of low fodmap inspiration off of Pinterest!

  • Audrey

    We’re just starting our adventure into the world of Low-FODMAPs to see if it makes a difference for my husband, so we haven’t decided on a favorite resource just yet!

  • Carol

    I get my ideas from others that I have met that are tryin to adjust to this new way of eating. I could really use a few new suggestions to try and share with others.

  • Mary

    I am always on the look out for new FODMAPS recipes. Besides your blog (of course!), I also like Patsy Catsos’ blog. I have several books by you, SueShepherd, and Natalie Nott. I just found a new recipe book by Suzanne Perazzini…I haven’t made anything it in yet but some of the desserts look really yummy.

  • Caitlin

    Yay for more low FODMAP cookbooks! Thanks for continuing to be a great resource. I’m looking forward to your posting about probiotics!
    Thanks again for all you do.

  • Jen M

    Hands down you and your blog are the best. Your knowledge and interest in FODMAPs has truly been a lifesaver for me. I look forward to your posts.

  • Ana

    Do I really have a chance to win this super book?
    There are so many positive responses to what you are doing for us Kate.
    I am always looking forward to see what is new on your blogs.

  • Jordan

    To be honest, my number one resource for FODMAP friendly recipes is your blog! I find everything you put up very helpful, not to mention delicious. Additionally, the old Google search often comes in handy too. There’s so much out there if you just look!

  • Susan Lowenberg

    Thanks for all the wonderful information, resources and recipes you provide on your blog! I’d love to win this cookbook. Thanks.

  • Sharon Godfrey

    I purchased the 21 Day Tummy book when it first came out. Following a low-FODMAP diet has become second nature now. I carry a list of Belly Buddies in my purse so I can refer to it when I am grocery shopping or eating out. I regularly check this Kate Scarlata blog for new recipes. In addition, I also receives e-mails for recipes and exercise tips from My Fitness Pal. It has become a fun challenge to swap ingredients from some of those recipes to make them belly buddies. Recently I changed a recipes for Apricot-Rosemary Chicken to Orange-Rosemary Chicken. What changed? I substituted orange marmalade for the apricot preserves. I have been waiting for the new book to come out and definitely plan to buy it. But it would sure be fun to win a free copy!

  • Angela Tornabane

    I love the resource on your site that describes what foods to avoid and which food are ok to eat on the low Fodmap diet. I have printed this out and take it to the grocery store for reference as I seem to forget all the choices.
    I also try to eliminate gluten, so I appreciate when you defined it as a protein. Thanks for helping so many of us who just want to feel better and have a hard time navigating on our own!
    I would love to win this cookbook!

  • Rozaan

    This is my number one resource for all things FODMAP. Your blog has guided me in improving my health and overall well being. Also, it was recommended to me by my Gastro

  • Martha Souza

    I am learning so much from your blogs. Please keep them coming.

    In the meantime I wanted to let people know about a great gluten free cookbook produced by America’s Test Kitchen where my son is a test cook/writer. He gave me the book when he learned about my being on the FODMAP diet. It is called: “The How Can It Be Gluten Free Cookbook”. Granted the recipes aren’t all FODMAP friendly but one can adapt the recipes to their specific needs.

    • Jolante

      I would love a copy of these books! Your blog has been very helpful in my journey with IBS and I am so great full for the u formation you give us every day!

    • sandy

      I just bought this book and am so impressed…it is nice to have someone else do all the heavy lifting because it is so expensive to experiment with gluten free recipes…I have always trusted America’s Test Kitchen. What a great resource!

  • Madeline Lander

    The internet in general and your blog in particular are great sources for me. Thanks for all you do.

  • sandy

    I have been low fodmapping for about 6 weeks, now. I cannot begin to tell you how much I absolutely love this website! There is so much information out there concerning IBS and digestive health. At first, I was overwhelmed trying to figure out why apples, watermelon, onions, milk and wheat made my stomach seize. After studying the low fodmap way, it all makes sense to me. My Mom has suffered from colitis and Crohn’s, my grandpa died from stomach cancer…both my cousins have colitis and my uncle had a fructose allergy (now I think it was just a mal-absorption problem, he was diagnosed 30 years ago). So, thank you so much, Kate for helping me navigate the information and for providing truly healthy and delicious food ….i no longer feel six months pregnant and I no longer worry about when or where i might blow a gasket..THANK YOU!!!!

    • katescarlata

      Thanks Sandy for sharing your story. I am so happy to help. I am truly grateful that finally we have some nutritional advice to provide people that suffer with GI symptoms from food intolerances. My blog as I have mentioned numerous times is a labor of love. Lots and lots and lots of work behind the scenes…but wonderful posts like yours make it all so very worth it! xx Kate

      • sandy

        I watched my Mom suffer so much from this. She would go into remission and then a few years later, it would come back with greater fury. I was kind of hoping I would break the family cursed belly history, but about 15 years ago things started to happen. It started with milk and slowly there were more foods I just couldn’t handle….it was kind of like the frog in the pot of steaming, then simmering, then boiling water…I just figured I could never give up my beautiful bread and those crisp autumn apples and so I just became complacent and resigned to bloat and blowouts. This summer was a turning point for me…I just couldn’t take it any longer. I’ll be turning 55 soon and just figured it was time to change my “i can’t give up that” to “maybe something better awaits me”…so I took the plunge and am so much better for it..thank you again, Kate

    I understand many foods have not been tested for FODMAP approval but I was wondering if psyllium and Xanthan gum are OK to add in to recipes. Many recipes use these products to improve texture and appearance of breads and baked goods.

      I believe psyllium is okay and xanthan gum is not a FODMAP but can contribute to gas–small amounts seem tolerated in most people that I work with–but if you overdid the baked goods or had multiple foods with gums in them at the same meal….you might get symptoms.

    I’ve been mostly taking the recipes I have and trying to adapt them, but that takes a lot of work, so I’d love to have a book that’s full of low FODMAP recipes.

    Is it too late to try and win this book? I was recently put on a FODMAP diet by my GI and I’m having a hard time eating the right foods because it’s so tricky especially when going out to eat. I’ve cooked two FODMAP recipes and they’ve come out well but I’ve eaten the wrong foods twice in two weeks. I’d be so thankful to get that book to learn how to be more effective in eating the right foods.

    The two FODMAP recipes I found online came from fodmapliving.com. It has been pretty helpful. I mainly just google fodmap recipes and see what Google gives me.

    Thanks Kate Scarlata for providing the grocery shopping list. It has been my FODMAP Bible these past two weeks. 🙂

    The internet is full of fantastic recipes, but one still has to be careful and read between the lines – like you have often said: low-FODMAP ~= gluten free ~= paleo ~= FODMAP-free either. There is lots of confusion, and you’re a great and trusted resource. So, thanks!

    My husband just linked your website to me. I have IBS as part of my fibromyalgia so looking at FODMAP. This will be an excellent resource as I venture into the world. Hmmmm, those muffins look good! Thank you for sharing your knowledge. It’s so appreciated.

    Oops, scratch that! I see that it’s too late. Anyway, will be a good book to look for. Thank you for the review.
