Maple and Raspberry Chia Jam (makes 8-10 servings)

Maple and Raspberry Chia Jam by The Fat Foodie

Chia jam has been all the rage for a while now, but on the whole I’ve failed to see the attraction. However, when eating a low FODMAP diet, one of the things you need to watch out for is high FODMAP jams. A low FODMAP jam is a jam which is made with a suitably low FODMAP fruit, such as raspberries or strawberries, and is made with sucrose or glucose syrup. High FODMAP jams have got added fructose, high fructose corn syrup, glucose-fructose syrup, honey, agave syrup, sorbitol, mannitol, xylitol, maltitol, erythritol and isomalt.

Sushi (serves 2)

Sushi by The Fat Foodie

Sushi is a great low FODMAP option for a meal because rice is naturally gluten-free and tends to be easy on the tummy at the best of times anyway.

Lentil and Vegetable Soup (serves 4-6)

Lentil and Vegetable Soup by The Fat Foodie

I went for a long walk the other Sunday morning and when I got back home I wanted something really warming and comforting for lunch. As we all know, there’s nothing more warming than a steaming bowl of hot homemade soup, so I got cracking with making a big pot of quick and very easy to make lentil and vegetable soup and within an hour (thanks to my trusty food processor) it was ready to eat.
