A member of my family has a serious stomach issue and after searching for years, we finally found the answer. The FODMAP diet. It’s pretty amazing and they are finally able to eat properly again.
It’s gluten-free and onion and garlic free, which might sound like a pain but it’s not really. (There are lots of many other things you can’t eat, but it’s manageable, I promise.)
According to Ayurveda, they increase passion and ignorance.
In Buddhism, apparently they root the consciousness too firmly in the body.
In FODMAP terms, they ferment in your gut and make you sick.
Now I’m back cooking again, as I can create wonderful new FODMAP friendly foods.
In my research to find recipes, I came across The Whole Pantry app for your iPhone. Created by Belle Gibson, brain cancer survivor and now food maven.
Her app is possibly the prettiest thing I have seen in an app since forever and there is wonderful nutritional information on it, as well as vegetarian, gluten-free recipes. I am not a vegetarian, so I can add a protein if I need to, but gee it looks pretty and delicious.
Now I’m off to edit the book. I got a front cover concept yesterday. So exciting. I can’t show you yet but it’s a ripper.
Instead I will show you another painting by my new favorite artist, Irene Hardwicke Olivieri of Oregon. (The one at the top is called- Where have you been?)
The one below is called My Little Tranquilizers.
What I would give to be able to create like this…
Happy Thursday, foodies.
