Low FODMAP Pork and Peanut Stir Fry
October 02, 2022
"It was recently recommended by my Gastroenterologist to follow the low FODMAP diet to try to eliminate what I call gut flare ups. The goal of following a low FODMAP diet is to eliminate foods that cause IBS symptoms and then you slowly introduce high FODMAP foods, one at a time. This helps you determine what foods cause you to have flare ups. I was lucky enough to have coverage to pay for a dietitian, but I find most recipes in the meal plan offered to me so bland, it made it difficult for me to stay on track. So, I researched what was allowed and not, how much of this and that was acceptable and tried my best to develop recipes that worked for me. This recipe comes together so easily and tastes amazing!! I make my own garlic infused oil by simmering 4 smashed garlic cloves in 1/2 cup oil over low heat for 30 minutes, but you can buy a certified low FODMAP garlic infused oil online or in the natural food aisle at your favourite grocery store."
