Thank you for providing these recipes. However, I would caution anyone with IBS to consult a list of high Fodmap Foods before preparing them. There are some foods that may be OK for the writer but may cause problems for others—e.g. mushrooms and broccoli.

The diet and recipes are low FODMAP, not no FODMAP. Perhaps we need to look at the big picture. I deliberately eat broccoli because broccoli and spinach are two of the most nutritious vegetables. I doubt if Sue Shepherd said to eat no FODMAPS. I can't eat brussel sprouts or cauliflower or kale, also of the same family. Anyway, since the rest of the food on the diet is very low or no FODMAPS, it may allow a person to eat a little FODMAPS like healthy broccoli. We alternate spinach and broccoli at dinner, one one day and the other the next, and don't eat huge portions of broccoli. Mushrooms we eat maybe once a month, a very small serving. We alternate oatmeal and eggs for breakfast, since the oatmeal is good for keeping LDL cholesterol down.
I developed this diet over the years after a bout of severe viral food poisoning that trashed my g.i. tract. I was hospitalized at the Mayo Clinic, and the nurse told my cousin they didn't know if they could save me. Of course they didn't tell me that, only that I had a massive infection. My cousin told me later; I wondered why my cousins quit visiting me in the hospital. They were afraid they'd get it. Anyway, if nothing else, this diet and recipes may give others hope that some day they'll get out of the pit they are in and regain a fair degree of normalcy.
