Oops! Yesterday was Crawl day! And I missed it!
You’ll have to get my January links on February 1, I guess.
Enjoy some of my favorite recipes and reads from this past month!
Low FODMAP Eggplant Parmigiana from Fussy Fodmapper. When eggplant parmigiana is good, it’s really good.
Iron-rich Flapjacks from The Fat Foodie. In the US, a “flapjack” is a pancake! In the UK, a “flapjack” is closer to a granola bar. And these flapjacks have oats, ginger, chocolate, chia, raisins, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and more chocolate. I’m there.
Quick and Easy Spinach “Risotto” from Kate Scarlata. Risotto is too dang complicated! I’m excited to try this alternative–looks super-flavorful too!
Maple Pumpkin Pecan French Toast from Low Fodmapper. I think January is a perfectly acceptable time to consume pumpkin. Don’t you?
Strawberry Mimosas from A Little Bit Yummy. These look perfect for Valentine’s day and for when spring finally rolls around!
Chocolate and Peanut Butter Crunch Bars from Southern in Law. According to her husband, they’re the best thing she’s ever made. I could take his word for it…or I could try them myself. 😉
Low-FODMAP Red Cabbage Stir-Fry with Tofu. I always forget how much I like cabbage in stir-fry. Have to try that again.
Healthy Peanut Butter Cups from Fit Foodie Finds. Are peanut butter cups the best thing ever, or what? Now you can make ’em homemade!
IBS & FODMAPs
The Low-FODMAP Diet Should Not Be Followed Forever from IrritableBowelSyndrome.net. In this post, Larah Brook discusses the importance of reintroducing FODMAPs to your diet.
Recovery & Health
WTH Is a “Diet Mentality” from Heather Caplan. I really appreciate the distinction here that Heather is making being ditching diets and ditching the diet mentality. It’s one thing to quit dieting, but it’s another thing to abandon that little voice that says, “But I really shouldn’t be eating this…”
Intuitive Eating Can Be Messy from Bucket List Tummy. There’s lots of grey area to intuitive eating. It’s supposed to be that way because it’s inherently anti-rules!
Rejecting Diet Culture from Delicious as It Looks. One of my favorite low-FODMAP bloggers and recipe developers talks about her journey to accepting Health at Every Size and Intuitive Eating!
The Insecurity of Hard Work from The Science of Running. This article has been making it’s rounds in the blog world, and it’s great. Whether it’s running or studying or blogging or even yogatating (my dad’s term), we need to challenge the idea that hard work is the solution to all problems.
How to Overcome Fears Around Your Body Changing from The Real Life RD. If your body changes, you haven’t “let yourself go. You’ve let yourself go of life sucking crap that was controlling your life.”
