Low-FODMAP Tahini-Maple Grilled Pork Chops

Low-FODMAP Tahini-Maple Grilled Pork Chops

Here is yet another recipe I made a year ago, but didn't get around to posting. I was looking for a pork chop recipe that would be good for fall and came across this recipe at Food Done Light: Tahini Yogurt Pork Chops. It was perfect for converting to low-FODMAP and is a great recipe for autumn with its warming spices and flavors. Tahini is one of my latest obsessions. I'm finding it has many tasty applications and I'm working on several more recipes featuring this versatile ingredient.

A Restricted Life No More

I had a difficult time last week, as I think a lot of women did, so I didn't get a recipe posted. I just couldn't concentrate or focus, and my recipes seemed unimportant. I have always been a feminist (I was lucky to have parents that raised me that way), but it has only been in the past couple of years that I've become more passionate about it. Since the election, the #metoo movement, and learning about how diet culture is rooted in the patriarchy, I've gotten really angry. It's probably too much to talk about on a food blog, but since it has affected me so deeply, I just thought it was worth mentioning how I'm feeling.

Low-FODMAP Instant Pot Italian Meatballs for Spaghetti

Low-FODMAP Instant Pot Italian Meatballs for Spaghetti  /  Delicious as it Looks


I don't own an Instant Pot. At least not yet. Last year we got my mom an Instant Pot for Christmas and I decided to borrow it for a while to see how I like it. Well, I like it. I'm pretty discerning when it comes to bringing new items into my house. I tend to be more minimalist when it comes to making purchases. I don't like to have a lot of stuff I don't use in my house.

Low-FODMAP Bacon Cheeseburger Macaroni

I wasn't sure I would get a post up in time this week since I've been feeling a bit off lately. It all started when I went up to Minnesota to visit my sister's family for the holiday weekend. Even though I hardly spent much time outside, I ended up getting my feet and ankles all bit up by mosquitoes. They are the state bird, after all, so I guess I should have expected it. I lived in Minnesota for 13 years though and never got bit this bad! Well, by the time I got home my ankles were swollen to the size of oranges. I ended up taking some Benadryl because I was so uncomfortable. I've been drowsy and sleepy since. Although my ankles are back to normal size, they are still itchy.

Low-FODMAP Smoked Turkey & Spinach Wraps with Spicy Mayo  /  Delicious as it Looks

Just in time for back-to-school! I'm finally sharing this recipe that I created last year and never got around to posting. I'm hoping that this new schedule of posting a new recipe every Thursday will help keep me motivated to keep up with my blog. And then recipes like this won't get lost and go unpublished.
