FODILICIOUS INTERVIEW WITH EMMA HATCHER
AUTHOR OF ‘SHE CAN’T EAT WHAT’
– THE FODMAP FRIENDLY KITCHEN COOKBOOK
Emma is a cook, author, recipe developer and food styling assistant based in Brighton, UK.
Fodilicious: Tell us about why you started “She Can’t Eat What” and your journey to date so far?
I realised that although the science behind the low FODMAP diet was brilliant and empowering, nobody knew about it! When a dietician suggested I try the diet (7 or so years ago) there were a huge lack of recipes available that were both delicious and low FODMAP – and recipes that felt ‘normal’. I created my website/blog www.shecanteatwhat.com, with the aim to share my story, raise awareness of the low FODMAP diet and to help others in the same position. IBS is not a sexy subject – which means a lot of us sure are suffering in silence and I really want to change that.
Fodilicious: How long have you suffered from IBS and what’s your experience been like on a low FODMAP diet?
Fodilicious: Do you think more awareness of the low FODMAP diet and the benefits needs to be raised in the UK?
Fodilicious: Tell us a bit about your Cook book “The FODMAP Friendly Kitchen” and where is it available to purchase?
Fodilicious: At Fodilicious we’res so passionate that no one misses out, so that even if you’re on a low FODMAP diet you can enjoy delicious foods! Have you tried our Cookie Buttons and if so, what’s your favourite flavour?
I love that message and couldn’t agree more. It’s tough to pick, but I think I’m going to have to settle on ginger!
