Foods in my day

Irritable Bowel Syndrome affects 1 in 7 adults.  There are many dietary triggers associated with IBS, including a group of sugars called FODMAPs.
Check out today’s recipe;
Zucchini Slice

Zucchini Slice

You will need approximately 2 medium zucchini and 3 or 4 shortcut bacon rashes.

5 eggs
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
¾ cup (90g) brown rice flour
¼ cup (35g) corn flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
375g coarsely grated zucchini
1 cup (100g) grated tasty cheese
1/3 cup finely chopped chives
120g shortcut bacon rashes, chopped
1/3 cup (80ml) olive oil

Preheat oven to 180°C.  Grease and line a baking dish or slice tray measuring approximately 20x30cm.

Beat eggs and mustard with a whisk.  Add rice flour, corn flour and baking powder, and whisk together until smooth.

Add the remaining ingredients and mix with a spatula until evenly combined.  Spread mixture into prepared baking dish.

Bake 30-35 minutes until firm to touch, and puffed and golden.

Please note: many sources state brown rice flour is high FODMAP.
I have checked this with Dr Jaci Barrett of Diet Solutions and Monash University and she has confirmed that
brown rice flour is in fact low FODMAP and safe in a low FODMAP diet.

Foods and Intolerances

Here’s a little information about FODMAP’s. What they are and what they do to the body.

If you are experiencing any symptoms of bloat, lethargy, cramping, irritability and just not feeling right, don’t put off seeing someone about it. IBS and FM (Fructose Malabsorption) is becoming more and more common in the adult years of our lives. Ignoring symptoms could see you doing more damage to your body and we don’t want that to happen.

Sue Shepherd developed the Low-FODMAP diet in the late 1990’s. It is still not a very well known diet in the networks I circle however it is becoming increasing obvious that more and more people are suffering from food intolerance’s and IBS. Sue has helped so many people. I hope she can help you or someone you may know. 

Look at the foods you are eating and the effects that they are having on you. A great tool to use is a food diary.
