I was actually so surprised at how good this soup tasted so I just had to share it. No onions, garlic or stock, it’s pretty simple. Which is exactly what you need when you have a tummy that doesn’t particularly like onions and garlic but this recipe pleased both my tastebuds and my tummy.
For people that don’t know about FODMAP’s >>
Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols. These are complex names for a collection of molecules found in food, that can be poorly absorbed by some people. When the molecules are poorly absorbed in the small intestine of the digestive tract, these molecules then continue along their journey along the digestive tract, arriving at the large intestine, where they act as a food source to the bacteria that live there normally.

I may have fructose malabsorption so I am testing out how I feel once I remove all the foods that has FODMAP’s in them. For four weeks you need to follow it quite strictly and go gluten free and dairy free as well. I actually started feeling better straight away so I’m pretty sure that I need to be aware of now. I have to be a lot more organised with what I eat but I am learning new food combinations and creating new recipes with is always exciting.
My meals are a lot more simple, but thats a good thing I am really appreciating each food item that makes me feel great. Though once these 4 weeks are up I will definitely be trying to work out the dosage that works for me regarding beans and broccoli #imissthemsomuch
