Diet

My Shopping System

For about a year now, I have been doing the weekly grocery shopping for my family, and have got quite a good system going.

Each week I order the household, pantry & dairy supplies online to be delivered to save time and energy, but I get the fruit & veg fresh (plus anything else I can’t get through the online shopping). 

The Low-FODMAP Diet

The low FODMAP diet was developed as a form of symptom management for people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and food intolerances. It involves eliminating certain groups of "sugars" (or short-chain carbohydrates to use the scientific term) that are commonly poorly digested in the small intestine and are therefore likely to cause digestive related symptoms including abdominal pain, nausea, bloating, increased wind, changes in bowel habits (constipation or diahhorea).
