Show Notes


Oh Crumbs - The Gluten Free Podcast. A podcast about all things gluten free, coeliac disease and staying positive despite your dietary requirements. By gluten free bloggers Laura Strange and Sarah Howells. 

Episode 7 - we are joined by cookery book author and blogger Emma Hatcher this week, who blogs as She Can’t Eat What. Emma suffers from IBS and used the low FODMAP to help discover her specific dietary requirements. She is author of excellent cookbook the FODMAP Friendly Kitchen Cookbook and regularly posts new low FODMAP recipes on her website too. 

We chatted to Emma about: her initial IBS diagnosis, realising that being gluten free wasn’t enough and her struggle to identify what was bothering her sensitive gut, what the three phases of the low FODMAP diet actually are and how you should put them into practice, identifying your personal food triggers, reducing stress around dining at restaurants and eating at friends’ houses, the best brands for low FODMAP products, practical cooking tips for how to replace the high FODMAP foods you miss and how Canada is ahead of the game for gluten free food. 

Before the interview, Laura and Sarah talk about the very gluten free friendly London Brunch Festival (which showcased some of London’s top brunch spots), cross contamination in coffee shops, an epic afternoon tea and how not to feel like an awkward coeliac in restaurants.

COMPETITION TIME: Oh Crumbs is giving you the chance to win a copy of Emma’s fab low FODMAP cookbook “The FODMAP Friendly Kitchen Cookbook”. Head over to our Instagram page now for details of how to enter!
