Need an irresistible snack or welcome gift? Here you go! It's easy to create vegan candied pecans at home. This simple, no-bake version makes a scrumptious topping for any special fall or winter dish. Crumble the pecans over baked sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, cooked grains, vegan yogurt, or salads.
I like dishes that are quick and easy, so one-bowl meals are a staple in my house. This one pulls together in just half an hour. It's rich-tasting, satisfying, and high in protein, but it won't weigh you (or your tender tummy) down.
This recipe can be a life-saver when you don't feel much like cooking. It's simple to pull together with very little effort and gives everything it's added to a boost of flavor and protein. It's ideal to add to one-bowl dishes, such as the Bliss Bowls in Low-FODMAP and Vegan, and makes a great sandwich filling too.
This easy rice dish is a little bit sweet, a little bit savory. Infused with tropical flavors, it makes a terrific main dish or side dish.
Prune juice is an age-old remedy for constipation, but is there any merit in using it for constipation-predominant IBS? Prunes, now officially called dried plums, are an excellent source of fiber that can help maintain bowel regularity. But are prune products right for you?
Homemade low-FODMAP vegan yogurt is easy to make and inexpensive. Once you make your own, you may never buy commercial yogurt again!
Planning a party? A potluck? A picnic? A simple gathering? It can be a challenge to come up with something savory to serve that's different, fun, enticing, and low in FODMAPs. If you're up for some culinary excitement and kitchen fun, this recipe is for you!
Potlucks, picnics, dinner parties, and other social gatherings are lots of fun and opportunities to taste new recipes. Unfortunately, if you're vegan and have IBS, they're typically a challenge to negotiate in terms of finding anything to eat that won't trigger or exacerbate symptoms. Even more important, they can be a perfect breeding ground for foodborne pathogens.
Nutritional yeast, often affectionately referred to as "nooch," is a magical ingredient in vegan cuisine. These golden-yellow flakes add richness, protein, and a nutty-cheesy taste that falls neatly into the realm of umami. Nooch is most commonly dusted over salads, pasta dishes, vegan pizza, scrambled tofu, and popcorn, but it also makes a fantastic flavoring for vegan broth and soup bases, cheesy sauces, homemade vegan cheeses, and savory sprinkles. It can stand in for the flavor of cheese in almost any recipe. It's so delicious, most cats and dogs love it as much as vegans do!
Research on the FODMAP content of food is constantly evolving, and today's findings may differ tomorrow. That's because the scientific methods used for testing FODMAPs are continually improving, affording greater sensitivity and accuracy. But perhaps even more important are changing environmental and agricultural factors that can greatly influence FODMAP levels in foods.
Although vegan product options are rapidly expanding in the marketplace worldwide, manufactured food products that are safe for vegans with IBS still remain quite limited.
A trip to the grocery store can often be a bummer when you're a vegan with IBS. It's not always easy to remember what is and isn't safe or what our particular triggers may be.
I don't generally promote products unless they're vegan, low-FODMAP, and totally fabulous. I've affiliated with three companies that fit the bill, and they're offering some sweet discounts for a limited time, just for you!
Tasty, satisfying snacks that aren't loaded with sugar, fat, or FODMAPs aren't easy to find. Low-FODAMP fruit, although nutritious and low in fat, can trigger IBS symptoms if consumed too frequently or in large amounts. Nuts and seeds, while abundant in healthy fats, can also be a trigger if the portion size is too large. In addition, those calories and fat can add up quickly.
