Week 1 of sugar free January is complete! In case you missed it: during the month of January I’m giving up added sugar (inspired by the folks at Pinch of Yum). This is less of a strict diet or a new years’ resolution, and more of an experiment to see how sugar affects my body. Let’s go!
Hi and happy new year! I hope the holidays treated you well and you didn’t go too overboard on the food and drinks. If you did, no worries, we’re here with a fresh new start. Feels good, doesn’t it? I’m excited to see what 2018 will be like…

WTF are FODMAPs?!
FODMAPs are fermentable carbohydrates — AKA a part of some foods (like apples, wheat, and beans) that ferment in the gut, causing stomach pain and bloating. If you’ve been diagnosed with IBS or just feel miserable every time you eat, the low FODMAP diet might be for you!
Looking for recipes?
All the recipes that I create are suitable for anyone following the low FODMAP diet or looking to ease digestive discomfort. They’re also healthy and delicious!
The kitchen is my happy place. It’s where I go to de-stress, it’s my creative outlet outside of work. So when I started following the low FODMAP diet in 2014, I took the lengthy list of “foods to avoid” as a challenge to keep making awesomely delicious food (that made me feel awesome too). This blog is a place for me to share my thoughts, experiments, and what I’ve leaned over the past few years. Welcome!
