You may have heard the term FODMAP bouncing around the nutritional stratosphere for a while now, but what is a FODMAP anyways? Excellent question.
Last spring I went on a trip to New York with one of my best girlfriends who happens to suffer from a slew of digestive maladies. She’s not celiac, but has a hell of a time digesting wheat. She loves cheese, but can’t have lactose. And a lot of the usual gluten-free options, like things based with chickpeas or corn, just don’t work for her. The problem? FODMAPs. After watching her suffer for a couple of days as the result of a gluten-free pizza gone horribly wrong, I got interested in FODMAPs and how a low FODMAP diet can be therapeutic for many folks out there.
This week I’m on Oh My Veggies with The Lowdown on FODMAPs. To learn more, hop on over for the full post!
