FODMAP Bars? Yes please I’ll Love my guts!


A trip to Mexico, how fun! Then as I thought more about it I got super stressed out about what I will be able to eat and stay on diet. Granted when you’re at a hotel the easy thing to do is to make arrangements and eat there every night. But then I thought about what if we do a day trip and what is offered is sandwiches? Not a lot of gluten free bread in Mexico. The answer could be having a bunch of bars with me so I have something to eat… except most of them have dried fruit or something that is not FODMAP friendly…. Then I heard about this…. I’m in touch with them so I’ll be getting a sample soon, but they are doing a Kickstarter which is pretty cool. I’ll let ya know what I think when I get the sample, but this could be pretty exciting for my guts and hopefully for my taste buds!

Check out their Kickstarter Campaign!


Big Cheese!

Cheese, yes I miss my cheese. The ooey, gooey, melty cheese stringing off a sandwich or quesadilla and I take a bite. Yum! To be honest I find myself cheating here and there, but really the payment in belly ache time usually isn’t worth it.
I know they make all kinds of lactose free cheeses, but they melt like plastic on a heater, and taste about as good as that smells. So I just chalked up the cheese issue as a give it up food and, well,  gave it up.

But in the last few years, there seems to have been a lot more emphasis placed on those that must “go without”  and companies found a new market to gain. Vegan/Lactose intolerant folks…and now they have come up with a melty, ooey gooey cheesy goodness that works and tastes good. Thanks to the suggestions of one of my favorite bloggers, Chakabox, I found this little slice of heaven, Daiya Cheese!

So if you find yourself wanting to shy away from the melted plastic on your dairy free items, check this product out. You won’t be disappointed!
