  • Soups

    Soup is delicious for a nice warming meal, or snack.

    Some soups are very low energy, and can be consumed in whatever portion you choose, while other soups can be chosen more specifically to be a hearty, healthy meal, and should be consumed within appropriate portion allocations.

    Depending on the contents, the soup can be eaten with bread, toast, bread sticks, crackers, or you can choose to have a fruit later.

    Soup can increase your variety of vegetables, make vegetables more interesting, use up leftovers in the fridge, contribute to your fluid intake (sometimes difficult in the winter to drink enough water), is relatively quick and easy to make, and can be frozen in portions for those days when you don’t have time to cook.  It is warming and nutritious for winter!

    Enjoy!

  • FODMAP Friendly Recipes

    FODMAP stands for Fermentable Oligo-, Di-, and Monosaccarides  and Polyols.  They include fructose, lactose, fructans (FOS) and galactans (GOS), and sugar alcohols. These carbohydrates are absorbed in varying amounts, and can cause abdominal pain, bloating, flatus and diarrhoea, constipation, or both in people who do not absorb or tolerate them well.   Everyone has a unique absorption and tolerance level, and this has to be considered when preparing meals.

    To be successful, all FODMAPs have to be avoided initially, as they have a cumulative effect.  Speak to your dietician about FODMAPS and together devise a low FODMAP meal plan that will suit your specific needs and tolerance levels.

    The recipes in this section should be well tolerated by most people.  Caution should be added where appropriate.

  • Quick Meals

    Enjoying each meal is important.  Not only should the meal satisfy our hunger and our senses, but it should also satisfy our need to prepare a healthy meal in a limited time period.  If we feel we have put too much effort & time into a meal, it will not be truly satisfying, as it will have ‘drained our resources’ of time and effort.

    These recipes are designed to be quick, easy and delicious.  I hope you enjoy them too!
