The good news about low-FODMAP main courses for Easter

The good news? Lots of meat is naturally low FODMAP, so you won’t have to worry too much about main courses. Whether it’s roast turkey or glazed ham, you’ve got plenty of options with Fody’s holiday main course ideas for Easter. One word of caution: while you may be wondering “is meat low-FODMAP?”, a better question is whether the sauces and marinades you use are–seasoning can easily turn a harmless dish into an inflammatory one. Discover Fody’s collection of low-FODMAP sauces and seasonings here, and happy cooking!

Boost your gut health with nourishing sides:

Complement your main dishes with delicious, easy low FODMAP sides. You can’t go wrong with a simple roasted vegetable side dish on a holiday spread–but if you want to keep things fresh, light and low-FODMAP, why not opt for one of Fody’s many bright, festive and simple gut-friendly salad recipes? Check out the options here.

If you’re wondering “can I drink alcohol if I have IBS?”, the answer is, well…it depends.
