Red and Yellow Lentil Dal

Although canned lentils are recommended for a SIBO restricted diet, I find that small 1/2 – 1 cup portions of this dal, work for me without any digestive issue. I didn’t reintroduce lentils until 3-4 months after a very strict SIBO bi-phasic diet protocol and at that time only 1/2 cup servings. I would recommend…

Greens and Avo Soup

I’ve been making this recipe from Dr Mark Hyman for many years now but stopped because it wasn’t SIBO friendly. The original recipe used spinach as the base and we are only allowed like 12 leaves at a time so this became impossible. I recently reinvented it in a way that’s nutritious, tasty and gut…

Rice Paper Spring Rolls

In our home, we love this colourful meal on a warm summer’s day. It’s so refreshing and so tasty. The time to prep all the veg is a bit time consuming but once you’ve done that, it comes together quite quickly. The ingredients I’ve listed here make 3-4 rolls each for 5 people. 1/2 cup…

Anti-Inflammatory Breakfast Smoothie

I recently read an article with Dr. Joel Kahn about his morning anti-inflammatory¬† smoothie. This morning I tweaked it to make it SIBO friendly. It is nutrient dense, delicious and completely satisfying. Do not be put off by the dark, almost black colour – it is wonderful! 1/2 cup frozen blueberries 5 walnuts Protein powder…

Seed and Nut Bread

This is not your average fluffy, nutritionally deficient bread. This bread is very dense and so flavourful. Ideal for fuelling up before a hike or long day out as it will keep you full for hours. This is great news for us SIBO folk who need to space meal times out to help with slow…

Mediterranean Tofu Scramble

This is a perfect main for when you have a container of leftover roasted veg sitting in the fridge. The caramelised flavour of the veggies mixed with herbs, tofu and olives is a welcome treat for breakfast (or anytime.) You could also chop some vegetables and saut√© them if you don’t have roasted on hand…

Spiced Tea

Black tea of choice Fresh ginger slices 1/3 cinnamon stick broken Coconut milk or plant based milk of choice Optional: 1/2 tsp maple syrup Boil water and steep tea bag for 3-5 minutes. At the same time steep ginger and cinnamon in a metal tea ball or strainer. Remove bag at the 3-5 minute mark….

Halva Pancakes

I love halva and used to treat myself to a sweet chocolate halva confection when I lived in London. Now on a SIBO restricted diet and limiting sugar it’s something I haven’t enjoyed in many years. Although, not as sweet as the original it still has that wonderful flavour I remember. 1/4 cup tahini 1/4…

Eggplant Parmesan

I made this for dinner last night and it was so good – kid and husband approved. Eggplant parmesan is such fab comfort food and I am so grateful to be able to enjoy it again. Ingredients Eggplant cutlets: 1 medium eggplant, sliced thin vertically (so you end up with long, thin slices) 2 flax…
