Cook with flavor and flair (and ease) with nutritious, high-fiber meals that promote gut health, including low-FODMAP recipes.
There’s good reason to eat with your gut in mind. A healthy gut optimizes digestion, but that’s not where it ends; it’s vital to helping us absorb nutrients, and plays a role in supporting our immunity and emotional health. We went to the kitchen to develop a collection of easy, satisfying ways to get in the vibrant vegetables, hearty grains, and optimal fiber that support the gut in meals like Eggs with Sweet Potato and Swiss Chard Hash, Miso-Ginger Soup with Halibut and Zucchini Noodles, and Turkey Meatballs with Lemony Wild Rice and Artichokes.
These ATK recipes find creative ways to forgo often-irritating alliums without forgoing flavor, and can all be lactose-, dairy-, or wheat-free (or even gluten-free): We focus on ancient grains in dishes like Quinoa Taco Salad and Curried Millet Pilaf with Almonds and Raisins, and offer gluten-free substitutions, if you need them, for good-for-you whole grains like barley and farro. In addition to 60 recipes that naturally fit low-FODMAP guidelines (the medically backed diet for common gut disorders like IBS), a grand majority of the remaining recipes provide customization instruction so you can adapt them to be low-FODMAP as well. That means every recipe has an answer to the way your gut tells you to eat.
Whether you’re trying to calm occasional gastrointestinal symptoms, are among the 1 in 5 Americans who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), or simply seek to nourish yourself with whole foods, this book’s for you.
