Eating for IBS and Low FODMAP Cooking

Brooke Bulloch, Registered Dietitian at Food to Fit, has over 3 years of experience supporting individuals with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and other gastrointestinal issues. FODMAPs is an acronym for fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols. Certain foods that contain these types of carbohydrates can go undigested in someone with IBS, causing uncomfortable symptoms such as gas, bloating, pain, diarrhea, or constipation.

This workshop provides an introduction to FODMAPs and the low FODMAP Diet created by Monash University in Melbourne Australia. Participants will learn:

  • Which foods are high in FODMAPs
  • What the low FODMAP Diet entails (the “elimination” phase)
  • How to go about re-introducing FODMAP rich foods after the elimination phase (and why this is important!)
  • Supplements that may be useful
  • Supporting materials – my favourite apps, blogs, websites, and recipes

Participants will also learn to cook 3 low FODMAP dishes – bolognese on spaghetti squash (or gluten free pasta); Caesar salad; Chocolate Raspberry Chia pudding

Price: $75 + tax
