Having a bad IBS attack so I'm extreme FODMAPping

So what can I make with:
Parsnip (which I hate)
Turnip/swede (not keen)

& which squash are the least stringy?

I think everything else is off limits - between FOMAP & my own intolerances I'm stuffed

I foresee a large quantity of soup/stew in my future & they are boring without onions & garlic sad

That'll teach me to have a J2O hmm

Any other ideas?

Hello, I am also having a bad IBS time at the moment and am on low FODMAP, though not as restricted as yours!

I had a sort of potato salad thing today with potatoes, ham, cucumber, carrots all mixed together and covered in olive oil. I added in a splodge of mayonnaise but if you have other intolerances this might be a problem for you. If you can manage a few drops of lemon juice that would add a bit of zing, but I am guessing from the above you are off all fruit. This is good one to take out as well as it's nice cold.

We have potato wedges made by coating the potato in oil and paprika and cooking in the oven a lot. They are nice with mince. I can't seem to tolerate shop brought chips for some reason so this is my chip fix.

Otherwise, lots of roast dinners with the list above.

How about fish? easy and versatile and something a bit lighter then meat and potatoes?

I am confused by your list. I follow a very strict low fodmap diet for SIBO and beetroot, parsnips and potatoes are totally not allowed. I eat a lot of meat with veggies - but not those.

I did FODMAP initially as an exclusion diet

What I eat what was left after I excluded everything plus what I reintroduced without any symptoms

But if you look on Wiki potatoes are fine and beetroot not......bodies just can't read sometimes wink

I do eat some fish but I'm not a massive fan Jeepers,& it's the sides that confuse me

Shop bought chips (oven) often have a coating which don't agree with me either

Ah, I did wonder if it was something like that with the chips.

Sides are a pain! I currently seem to live off carrots, cucumber, potato and peppers. It is bloody tiresome. hmm

& I can't do cucumber hmm

I could just cry sometimes

I did actually burst into tears in a cafe the other day. Me and DH had a rare chance for a child-free lunch out and after spending ages finding something on the menu I could eat it turned up and they had fried some of the veg in garlic. Everyone around me was eating delicious sandwiches and cakes and it all just got a bit much blush

Poor DH was very sweet and took me to m&s to buy ham and carrot sticks.

Today we had a hot potato salad with pancetta which was lovely. I think it's going to be beef stew for dinner with lots of random herbs to try and flavour it.

Greggs will make you a plain ham with no butter exciting along with plain grilled chicken & a baken potato with no butter at most restuarants
