MEET THE FODILICIOUS TEAM

Lauren Leisk, Founder, Fodilicious

 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 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 ingredients.

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!

 With our Chefs & Dietician our aim at Fodilicious is to convert our low FODMAP, gluten free and dairy free home-made recipes into freshly prepared, fodiliciously flavoursome freshly prepared meal options with no additives or preservatives using the finest fresh local Scottish ingredients to help IBS sufferers, and those who are gluten & dairy intolerant and for anyone who wants to live a better quality healthy lifestyle to improve overall health & wellbeing. 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.
