Protein is often a looming but unwarranted concern when it comes to vegan diets, and low-FODMAP vegan diets in particular. That's because many vegan diets rely heavily on legumes (beans, lentils, and peas), which are excellent sources of concentrated plant protein. Unfortunately, most legumes are high in FODMAPs and can cause digestive distress for people with irritable bowel syndrome.
Making breakfast can be tough at times for people with IBS. Hunger may lag when your tummy has been in a twist all night or when you still feel bloated and stuffed from yesterday's meals. There certainly may be occasions when eating is the last thing on your mind in the morning.
The beauty of homemade vegan cookie dough for snacking is that it doesn't contain any eggs, so it should be safe to eat raw, right? Not necessarily.
Although pudding is a pleasurable comfort food any time of the year, it's especially welcome during the dark, cold, dreary days of winter when a little pick-me-up is needed. Chocolate, of course, makes everything more bearable. It increases the brain's level of serotonin, the "feel-good" brain chemical, which plays a major role in boosting mood and enhancing emotions, along with a slew of other health benefits.

Frozen ripe bananas make thick, tasty smoothies, but they can also trigger symptoms in people with IBS. Is it possible to make an equally thick and creamy vegan smoothie without ripe bananas?
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!
