 I have suffered from IBS from a young age where I found that the root cause of my flare  ups was due to my diet. I had a very busy lifestyle, working long hours and finding it challenging to prepare my own meals each day or for the full week. I ate a lot of ready – made meals as an easy alternative, however the products available did not tailor towards my dietary requirements and I found it very frustrating that there were no easy meal options available for IBS sufferers.

I have always been very passionate about researching IBS, looking for ways to alleviate my symptoms and network with other sufferers to share best practice. Finally, I discovered the low FODMAP diet, which eliminates all trigger foods which can set off IBS symptoms. My mum also suffers from IBS, and together we decided to prepare recipes substituting normal ingredients for low FODMAP alternatives – the results have been fantastic!

 Our aim at Fodilicious is to convert our low FODMAP, gluten free and dairy free recipes into freshly prepared, fodiliciously flavoursome convenient meal options to help IBS sufferers, and those who are gluten & dairy intolerant to live a better quality lifestyle. We want to raise awareness about IBS and low FODMAP, stop people suffering in silence, and make a difference in the UK ‘free from’ food market.
