The low FODMAP diet
was designed by scientists at the Monash University to manage Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Most broadly, it limits the consumption of specific types of carbohydrates which are poorly absorbed; see this post
for more details and some links to very useful websites.
I'm a very busy scientist-slash-aspiring businesswoman with a long history of IBS, a love for food and a penchant for adventures. Check out my recipe collection to find out how I manage! When I'm not working, cooking or blogging, I split my time between good music, running and backpacking in the Californian wilderness.
Low FODMAP is more than just a diet. From mad hunts for groceries, through the acquisition of gourmet chef skills, to impressive Tupperware gymnastics at weddings, you're in for an adventure. Check out my 'Lifestyle' and 'Grocery' sections for a list of US-specific low FODMAP foods
