I have struggled with GI problems for a while, and nothing I ate or did seemed to change it. However, I recently came across the ‘low FODMAP’ diet and it interested me as it involves removing or reducing certain high FODMAP foods from the diet in order to relieve GI problems. I committed to trying it out only recently and so far so good!
You can find out more about the low FODMAP diet on the Nicer Foods website: https://nicerfoods.com/what-is-fodmaps/
Nicer Foods is a company which sells low FODMAP products in order to make it easier to stick to a LOWFOD map diet. Take a look at the range of products they have on offer on their website here: https://nicerfoods.com/
I recently tried out Nice Foods ‘Be Nice Bar’. These bars are low in fodmaps and packed with healthy ingredients that won’t leave your belly feeling uncomfortable.
The bars are made with real peanut butter and have literally loads of chocolate chips- such a nice surprise when I opened them! The Be Nice Bar’s are made with all natural and wholesome ingredients, just like you’d use at home so you don’t need to worry about what you are eating.
Nicer Foods don’t use preservatives, so they recommend storing the bars in the fridge to keep them tasting fresh for as long as possible- but if you are anything like me, then the bars won’t stay around very long!
I loved munching on the Be Nice bars after training, as the bars are easy to eat and carry with me in my bag. I also loved them as an easily digestible addition to my green banana nice cream breakfast (with an extra dollop of PB on top of course).
Each delicious bar contains 7 grams of protein from natural peanut butter, rice, and quinoa- ideal for after working out, or to keep you satisfied until your next meal. As I mentioned, there are loads of bitter-sweet chocolate chips in the bars and these are dairy and soy free- so they won’t cause any problems for those with GI problems, or food intolerance’s. Just look at the list of ingredients to back me up!
The best thing about the bars in my opinion is that they are designed by dietitian and Nicer Foods co-founder, Kate Watson, so you can trust that they contain only FODMAP friendly ingredients! The bars are also great for those on alternative diets as they are vegan, dairy free, soy free, corn free, and certified gluten free- so as Nicer Foods says- we can all snack with confidence. Such a result!
