How to Host the Perfect Low FODMAP BBQ
As a heatwave sweeps the top half of the planet, we’re overwhelmed with ideas on how to make the most of summer! One of our favorite hobbies is parking our butts in the backyard and having a good ‘ole-fashioned summer BBQ.
Playing host may seem like a daunting task when you’re on the low FODMAP diet, but with our help, and Fody’s new range of low FODMAP BBQ sauces, planning the perfect summer bbq just got a whole lot easier!
Pretend You’re Hosting a Major Event- Even if it’s Just a Party for One!
No matter the size of your social circle, you can still enjoy the company of your closest family and friends, and take your BBQ party from everyday to extraordinary.
We’re talking about the works- cute matching outdoor plates, cups, and cutlery, themed decorations, string lights, and even sparklers- because, why not! Since we’ve all been trapped indoors over the past couple of months, adding a little extra flair goes a long way.
We’re firm believers that whether it's a party for one or a feast for the whole family, you can take advantage of the season by hosting the perfect low FODMAP BBQ!
