The recipes are Delicious. but VERY time consuming. Wish the recipes had Nutritional breakdown...it is Definitely not a Diet...it is a meal plan!! Be careful not to Gain weight. When my husband was told to begin a FODMAP exclusion meal plan by his Dr. I was concerned that I had little knowledge of what it would entail. The Dr. provided links, but was difficult to understand the scope. I ordered 3 books from Amazon and read all the introductory materials before I was able make my shopping list for the first week of 3 meals per day. His Dr. had highly recommended Kate Scarlata as the premiere resource or the Monash University nutritional approach. It took hours to make the first week's shopping list...requiring three different stores and online shopping to acquire all of the items. I have since found that Whole Foods does have MANY of the Gluten Free items. Ms. Scarlata cites FODY and CaseDeSanta, and they Are also good references. Week 2 was more difficult and time consuming, because there wasn't a set menu to follow, so I needed to make my own menu from the other recipes in the book before making a shopping list. Now that I already have many of the needed products on hand and know where to purchase what, the 3rd weeks seems to be a little easier and a little less time consuming.
