What’s it all about?
Coeliac. Lactose intolerance. Fructose malabsorption. Low FODMAPs. Been hearing a lot more of these words lately? You’re not alone – it’s been estimated that around 1 in 3 Aussies have intolerances to one or more of the groups of molecules more commonly referred to as “FODMAPs”, with the most common ones being lactose, fructose and gluten.
Healing our guts means managing what we’re eating, and spending a bit of time on a low FODMAPs diet is one of the more effective ways to do that; the only problem is it’s pretty restrictive and you may have a sweet tooth. So if you’re in that boat, this class is for you – we’re going to look at how to make some FODMAP friendly sweets so you can still have your cake and eat it too.
What will we cover?
The aim of this class is to give anyone with an interest in gut health a broad outline and some basic information about common food intolerances. Some of the things we’ll cover include:
- what exactly FODMAPs are and how the low FODMAP diet might be able to help you,
- what some of the more common food intolerances are and how they manifest,
- where to go for the most up to date information,
- common foods that are ok, not ok, and in the grey areas on the low FODMAP diet,
- a few simple, no bake recipes for us to put together on the night,
- a “something I prepared earlier” treat for you to nibble on while we chat,
- recipes to take home and try yourselves.
