When I first started investigating the low FODMAP diet last year, one of the most reliable and helpful sources of information was Kate Scarlata.
She is a registered dietician based out of Boston who travels around the country educating fellow nutrition professionals on the basics of FODMAPS and how best to help their clients.
Since initially the low FODMAP way of eating was a bit overwhelming I purchased her 21 day meal plan last March to get me started as I learned the basics. For $10 I was able to get three weeks of breakfast/lunch/dinners and snack ideas. SO helpful.
Since then I have continued to follow her blog for the latest in digestive health research as well as recipes.
MY NEW FAVORITE COOKBOOK
Her most recent accomplishment? An entire cookbook….all with foods I can eat! There are 150 recipes specifically designed for people with sensitive stomachs.
I was SO excited about the prospect that I had to have it. I entered a give-a-way on Kate’s site hoping to win my very own copy. The next day Kate contacted me and asked if I would be interested in a copy to review and share with all of you. Of course I said yes!
I immediately got to work with a pack of post-its.
I quickly realized though that I wanted to make everything so I scaled back my page marking to those that I planned to make in the very near future.
I plan to share more about the recipes I’ve tried soon, but just know that there’s some good stuff in there.
FODMAP TWITTER CHAT
Kate will be hosting a twitter chat with two Monash University researchers (the Australian team of scientists who developed the low FODMAP diet) at 7pm.
