Following on from the success of her previous cookbooks, Gluten-free Cooking, The Gluten-free Kitchen, rresistibles for the Irritable and Two Irresistible for the Irritable, Dr Sue Shepherd takes things a step further with co-author Peter Gibson in this new title. The first half of the book is a user-friendly guide to food intolerances, an explanation of the Low-FODMAP* diet and an overview of how to include it in your daily eating plan.
Sue, who understands that we don't all eat at home all the time, also gives advice on matters such as eating out, what to look out for when you're travelling and how to cook for children, vegetarians and people with diabetes. The information is conveyed in an approachable way, with plenty of diagrams to aid understanding.
The second half of the book is a collection of 80 simple, family-friendly recipes, designed to show how people with food intolerances can still get a great deal of pleasure out of cooking and eating, with chapters on Light Meals, Main Meals, Baking and Desserts.
The Food Intolerance Management Plan is a scientifically developed program and comprehensive recipe book for those suffering from common digestive illness.
Based on the revolutionary Low-FODMAP* Diet, it shows people with food intolerances how to enjoy their food while remaining free of the symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome and related conditions, such as gluten, fructose, lactose and wheat intolerances.
Authors Dr Sue Shepherd and Dr Peter Gibson are world leaders in the area. They explain the conditions that affect one in five Australians, and show readers how to:
- recognise symptoms and seek appropriate medical advice
- identify and avoid food likely to cause symptoms
- shop and plan menus for the whole family
- entertain, travel and eat out with peace of mind
With 80 delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes, including baked goods, desserts and spiced dishes, this is your one-stop guide to managing symptoms, feeling great and eating well.
