A FODMAP friendly request….

It’s been a while since I last published anything here. I have been writing, however, I’ve been keeping my stories private. A little while ago I started to think about the others who were in my stories and I wondered….would they approve of what I am writing? Long story short, after much thought I realized I didn’t want to ask them. I’m writing my perspective, so in lieu of having to be thoughtful and what not I just don’t publish. Today, however, I am writing all about me and so no permission required.

Where to begin….

I feel like I should start with a disclaimer as I am impaired. As a result of my Thanksgiving indulgence I had to pop a pain killer this morning. Scalloped potatoes and cherry pie. Not eaten on the same day, I dare not. Stupidly consumed one day apart and although each were heavenly they both have blown out my bum. Diverticular disease + IBS = don’t eat that shit but it calls to me…sometimes loudly. Following the FODMAP way of eating is not yet equating to eating FUN food. I’m working on it but it is challenging to eat with or to visit family while being so restricted. It’s not like once-upon-a-time wherein if I strayed from my food routine it meant only extra calories (well likely – there was a lot of diversity within my fitness regiment food wise so if I was “Cheating” it was probably some delicious creamy pasta or such). Now straying from the plan means illness and disruption. It’s annoying. Food is becoming my kryptonite.

I’m hoping to connect with others who are following the FODMAP diet to manage their diseases and/or conditions. If you have a blog or are following a great blog or such with FODMAP recipes, would you mind posting a link to the site below in the comments??

I’m hoping by whining out loud (hey it works for my kids after a while lol) I’ll come up with a few new dishes I don’t mind eating alongside others eating scalloped potatoes and cherry pie. It’s a long shot I know, but, one day I may actually learn from my experiences and just stop eating these delicious demonic temptations. I expect my kids to learn from their mistakes, one day soon I will apply that methodology to myself. Yep, one day soon.changeahead

Thanks for any sites you can recommend! I appreciate it.

Be well,
