FODMAPs, a broad variety of naturally occurring carbohydrates found in many plant-based foods, can wreak havoc on sensitive digestive systems, especially in people who have irritable bowel syndrome and other functional bowel disorders. Pinpointing and eliminating FODMAPs while maintaining nutritional excellence can be especially challenging for vegans, because FODMAPs are found in an extensive range of common foods and ingredients that are popular among vegans. In this groundbreaking resource and cookbook, Jo Stepaniak lays bare not only the FODMAPs vegans with IBS need to avoid, but also the wide assortment of nutritious plant-based foods that are generally well tolerated. Easy-to-read tables and shopping lists arm readers with all the information they need to navigate the supermarket and purchase kind-to-the-gut fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, beverages, and condiments. Over 100 scrumptious low-FODMAP recipes will help readers prepare spectacular seasonings as well as mainstays for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, so they can stay healthy and satisfied while pampering their delicate digestive systems.
Jo Stepaniak is the author and coauthor of more than two dozen books on plant-based cuisine, health, and compassionate living. Having struggled with IBS for decades, Jo knows what it's like to feel that no food is safe, even when eating healthy vegan fare. She works as a managing editor for an independent press.
