Review: Fodmapper

Unless you have been hiding under a rock within the online low-FODMAP community over the last month of so, you will know about the launch of Australian Gluten-Free Life’s special issue – Fodmapper. The magazine was highly anticipated from what I could see online, and I know I certainly raced out and picked it up […]

These energy bites tick all the boxes – I found a recipe on Gimme Some Oven (click here) – see note below about needing a sub to be low-FODMAP – but I understand […]

Tried and Tested Recipe: Peanut Butter and Choc Granola Bars

In my seemingly never-ending search for travel-friendly low-FODMAP snacks for my trips away for work, I came across a recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola Bars from Kate Scarlata – http://blog.katescarlata.com/2012/01/11/homemade-and-fab-peanut-butter-chocolate-chip-granola-bars/  I decided this sounded like a great one to try out, and as per usual, I made a few changes. Instead of the suggested all-natural […]

Tried and Tested Recipe: Low-FODMAP Anzac Biscuits

So I am about to go travelling again for work – only two nights this time so will be easier to manage than last time, but no cooking facilities and again no food available during the day, so still plenty of prep required. I found a heap of recipes for things I can create to […]

Review: Woolworths’ Free From Gluten Buttermilk Pancakes

I was a very lucky girl on Sunday, when my partner decided to make me these very cute pancakes using a gluten-free pancake mix I had picked up to try earlier in the week. I had tried a ‘from scratch’ gluten-free pancake recipe previously and found it not really up to the task of satisfying […]

Review: Food Intolerance Management Plan

You may remember that recently I received some books from Dr Sue Shepherd’s Shepherd Works. I have spent the last few days reading the larger of these two books: The Food Intolerance Management Plan (http://www.foodintolerancemanagementplan.com.au/). Authored by Dr Shepherd and Dr Peter Gibson, the cover of this book states that it provides “a complete health […]

A little bit of stress…

While Fodmapping is what my doctor has me focusing on right now, I have always known that my belly seems to be upset more when I am encountering areas of stress – especially personal stress or anxiety. Someone suggested to me a while back to have a think about the adult colouring book craze that […]

I really do have great work-mates…

So, day two is run and done, and today’s lessons are: Sometimes, amazing catering companies provide gluten-free and vegetarian options. Sometimes, amazing work mates see this and basically run over the top of other people to tell you that you can, after all, eat some of the at-event food! Only to be crestfallen when you […]

For the love of chocolate…

Oh dear lord, how I craved a chocolate cake today. I work from home, it was raining, and it was just tearing at me on the inside that I couldn’t tuck into a nice warm cuppa with some freshly baked chocolate cake with an awesome topping of chocolate icing on the top – alas, all […]
