The IBS Diet for Vegans. Digestive problems are a pervasive concern, with irritable bowel syndrome (1BS) alone affecting an average of 14 percent of the population worldwide. FODMAPS, found primarily in plant- based foods, are naturally occurring but poorly absorbed carbohydrates that can wreak havoc on a sensitive gut.
Restricting FODMAPs is particularly difficult for vegans because a vast number of grains, vegetables, fruits, and legumes, are flagrant offenders. But author and food-intolerance expert Jo Stepaniak has eliminated the guesswork. Following her nutritionally sound, scientifically proven approach, vegans with IBS will be able to pinpoint triggers, plan safe meals, and greatly improve their quality of life.
You'll find detailed tables that delineate which vegan foods are IBS friendly and which should be avoided. Easy-to-follow guides outline safe food alternatives, simple meal plans, and comprehensive shopping lists. Over 100 scrumptious, low-FODMAP recipes cover breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, as well as spectacular seasonings, sauces, salad dressings, and condiments. With Low-FODMAP and Vegan as your resource, you'll learn how to better manage your symptoms, meet your nutritional needs, and satisfy your taste budsall while pampering your delicate digestive system.
FODMAPs, a broad variety of naturally occurring carbohydrates found in many plant-based foods, can wreak havoc on sensitive digestive systems, especially in people who have irritable bowel syndrome and other functional bowel disorders. Pinpointing and eliminating FODMAPs while maintaining nutritional excellence can be especially challenging for vegans, because FODMAPs are found in an extensive range of common foods and ingredients that are most popular among vegans.
Jo Stepaniak is the author and coauthor of more than two dozen books on vegan cuisine, health, and compassionate living. Having struggled with IBS for decades, Jo knows what it's like to feel that no food is safe, even when eating healthy vegan fare
