The FODMAP Friendly Vegan was born following the experiences of Sharon, a vegan who found relief from uncomfortable digestive issues by following the rather restrictive, low – FODMAP diet. The Low-FODMAP diet was created in 1999 by a team of researchers at Monash University, led by Dr Sue Shepherd, who is credited with its inception. Today it has been published in international journals and is widely accepted as the most effective treatment for chronic gastrointestinal symptoms commonly associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Disease (IDS(D)). Through her website, The FODMAP Friendly Vegan, Sharon has decoded the science and wealth of information around low FODMAPs to create a user friendly hub for those suffering from similar symptoms.
She has also published an eBook by the same name. However you don’t have to have Irritable Bowel Syndrome or suffer from similar uncomfortable symptoms (or be a vegan for that matter) to enjoy the numerous delicious recipes Sharon shares through her eBook and blog. See just one example here for a yummy Roast Pumpkin Soup.
The FODMAP Friendly Vegan blog also has a wealth of resources covering topics such as the science behind the low – FODMAP diet, the diet itself, following a low-FODMAP diet in the real world as well as providing some healthy tips and even yoga poses for improving digestion.
