Some like it hot, Salsa that is!

What is a burrito without salsa? I’ll tell you, it’s a burrito that is missing something MAJOR! Well tonight I am giving into my cravings and making burritos for dinner, but I can’t find a low-Fodmap salsa to save my life. Onions and garlic are the main issues. But as I have also figured with Barbeque Sauce and Ketchup, I have to make my own. I have not been 100% successful on the previous ones, but I made a good Salsa so I’m going to write up that recipe.

Spicy Low-Fodmap Chipotle SalsaWP_20140717_005

  • 1 14.5 oz can of organic chopped tomatos (make sure it doesn’t have garlic or any non-fodmap friendly foods
  • 1  4 oz can of chopped chilis
  • 1/2 cup of chopped cilantro
  • 1  Chipotle Pepper from a can packed in Adobo (check ingredients)
  • 1 tsp of Tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  • 1 dash of Asafoetia powder (the replacement for onion powder/flavor )
  • 1 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1 tsp of chipotle pepper powder
  • t tsp of cumin

Add all ingredients, including juice from the tomatoes and chilies into blender and blend to your liking of chunkiness. Let it sit in the fridge for a few hours for flavors to settle.

I can’t wait, I think this is going to be a good burrito!

A new diet for Belly Issues

It’s been a lifetime, no literally, a lifetime of stomach pain. Starting from birth drinking soy to stop me from screaming to now where I am almost 40 (no I’m not screaming too often 😉   I go in and out of bad cycles filled with illness. BUT there is now a new hope. After trying dairy/gluten free, elimination diets, Paleo, allergy testing and all kinds of things it has been discovered I have a few things going on, one of which is SIBO and another is Epstein Barr Virus (EBV). I have been tasked to try a new diet, the Low FODMAP diet. After having my diet slapped around more than a punching bag at a boxing gym, i thought I would blog about it. So here I am, ready or not I’m going to sort out Yet another diet.  I have hope that this time it may just work! As of July 1, 2014 I’m IN!
