I have suffered from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (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 were mass produced, processed and full of additives and preservatives and did not suit my dietary requirements. I found it very frustrating that there were no convenient freshly prepared meal options using premium all natural ingredients.
I have always been very passionate about researching Irritable Bowel Syndrome, 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. With the help of my Mum, we decided to prepare recipes substituting normal ingredients for low FODMAP alternatives which helped alleviate my symptoms.
Our mission at Fodilicious is to convert our low FODMAP, gluten free and dairy free home-made recipes into freshly prepared meal options with no additives or preservatives. Using the finest fresh local Scottish ingredients to help IBS sufferers, and those with food allergies and intolerances.
