Vegans who have irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) often find that many plant-based foods result in digestive stress. This cookbook offers a plan of action that shows how to minimize symptoms and eliminate problem foods while a collection of over 100 gut-friendly, scrumptious recipes make meals enjoyable once again.
FODMAPs are poorly absorbed short-chain carbohydrates that are hard to digest. Commonly found in a vast number of grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes, this is especially problematic for vegans with IBS or other digestive disorders. In Low-FODMAP and Vegan, author and food-intolerance expert Jo Stepaniak sums up “the poop on IBS” and provides a nutritionally sound, scientifically proven approach that enables vegans to pinpoint triggers, plan safe meals, and greatly improve their quality of life.
Guesswork is eliminated with a tool kit of detailed tables that delineate which vegan foods are IBS friendly and which should be avoided, easy-to-follow guides that outline safe food alternatives, simple meal plans, and comprehensive shopping lists. Walnut Pâté, Lemon-Tahini Dressing, Cream of Carrot and Parsnip Soup, Warm Thai Noodle Salad, Eggplant and Spinach Bolognese with Pasta, Barbecued Tempeh Short Ribs, and Vanilla Tapioca Pudding are a few of the smorgasbord of tasty choices. Cooking becomes fun again and food is no longer the enemy.
Low-FODMAP and Vegan provides an IBS diet that offers nourishment and spectacular flavors while pampering delicate digestive tracts.
